Kara Tippetts, a wife and young mother with terminal breast cancer shares the raw edges of dying with grace, dignity, and a sense of humor. We follow along with this celebrated author and blogger as she navigates through many of our greatest fears – suffering and dying. As a happily married pastor’s wife with four wonderful kids, a terminal cancer diagnosis wasn’t the storybook ending she would have written. Kara helps us realize that time is precious, and through her incredible honesty and ever-present humor, she reminds us that life truly is a gift. Kara was the author of The Hardest Peace (winner of the 2015 ECPA Christian Book Award in the Inspiration category) and blogged faithfully at mundanefaithfulness.com. Cancer was only part of Kara’s story. Her real fight was to live genuinely with joy while facing a crushing reality.
