Product Description

Sara Frankl lived with chronic pain for almost two decades as the result of a rare autoimmune disease, eventually becoming confined to her home before dying at the age of thirty-eight. If anyone had a reason to focus on the unfairness of life, it was her. Yet Sara accomplished something few can-- she chose joy.

Choose Joy is a journey through suffering--not the particulars of Sara's disease but the state of her heart and the source of her strength. Sara's words, lovingly collected and introduced by her dear friend Mary Carver, breathe with life, love, and endless hope. Includes 16 pages of color photographs. Hardcover.

Publisher's Description

"Sara's story only grew louder, braver, bolder with her death. It's a story that we all need to keep hearing." --Lisa-Jo Baker, bestselling author of Surprised by Motherhood
Sara Frankl knew she had a terminal disease, but she didn't let it stop her from living. In the face of immeasurable pain, Sara chose joy--again and again. Her unforgettable message of hope and purpose lives on, even after her death, in her words.
CHOOSE JOY is a compilation of the lessons Sara learned while she was dying, written in her own words and sewn together by her close friend Mary Carver. It is a reminder to see the beauty in life, even when it looks nothing like you hoped or planned.
In a world full of tragedy, choosing joy is no small task--but, as Sara knew, the importance lies in the choosing. Once you learn to make that choice, every day, no matter what happens, joy will come.
