Publisher's Description

Kara Tippetts knows the ordinary days of mothering four kids, the joy of watching her children grow ... and the devestating reality of stage-four cancer. In The Hardest Peace, Kara doesn't offer answers for when living is hard, but she asks us to join her in moving away from fear and control and toward peace and grace. Most of all, she draws us back to the God who is with us, in the mundane and the suffering, and who shapes even our pain into beauty.

Winner of the 2015 Christian Book Award® in the Inspiration category.

    I've linked to Kara Tippetts' blog from my own often in the past few months. I learned of her as her battle with cancer nearly reached its conclusion and she made her way to Heaven. And in those short weeks, her blog posts and her resolve to live well and love big to her very last breath inspired me to want to read her book, "The Hardest Peace." I ordered it a couple of weeks ago, and I read it in two days. {And through many tears.}

    The book wasn't what I expected. It was even better. I anticipated reading the details of her cancer journey and how she made peace with the hardest thing of cancer. That's what I thought the title meant. But Kara's words were much less about cancer and much more about inviting Jesus into your hard. Whatever your hard might be. She showed us many hard parts of her life. Abused as a child, abusing substances as a teen, learning to love and trust a man unconditionally, learning to parent in a healthy way that hadn't been modeled for her, hurting from betrayal within a church, working to plant a church, almost losing their home, and then cancer. And through each of those hards...learning to live big and love well. And in a masterful way, she wove the details of her story seamlessly into an invitation for you to apply the principles to your story, whatever it may be.

    Kara chose her words carefully and wrote as though each reader was a friend she only would have the chance to speak with for a few moments. She didn't know, as she wrote, if she would even live to hold the completed book in her hands. And that unknown made her write fiercely, with rawness and urgency for her readers to seek forgiveness, crave restoration, offer every ounce of love, and not stop entering the grace of Jesus.

    I've never read a book like Kara's. A volume of wisdom, offered in grace, saturated in love, and conveying the truth that the hardest peace is a Divine Peace, and she found it...and fought to keep it. It's the book every young adult should read heading out into the real world. Forget the obligatory graduation volumes of "timeless wisdom." This book packs real life wisdom. It's the book every couple {dating, engaged or married} should read to learn the corners of love no pre-marital counseling book covers. It's the book every man and every woman from any age and any life station should read just to be richer in life.

    My husband is not a reader, but when I closed the book, I handed it to him and said, "I won't ask you to read many books in life, but please read this one." And he is. If I ever finish making my top 50 books people should read...this one goes on it. And by on it, I mean at the top. {Bonus: there are some conversation-starter questions at the end of each chapter. I skipped over them as I read, but when my husband began, he asked if we could talk about them together. We are having the best time talking about the answers to our questions every night after he reads!}

    Kara has given the world an amazing gift in sharing her story. This is truly one of the best books I've ever read. It speaks of an otherworldiness and points the reader straight to Christ. Blessed by her joy in Him.

    Kara Tippetts is no ordinary woman. Take one young mother, with four "littles" as Kara calls them. Add her role as wife to Jason, a young pastor called to plant a new church in Colorado. To those identifying components of who Kara Tippetts is add a diagnosis of stage IV cancer.

    Reading Kara's story is hard. I had only faced the necessities of raising one child as a single mom. Nothing I faced prepared me to read Kara's life as it is--raw, ravaging, hard, loving, angry, depressing, filled with fears for herself and her littles, saying goodbyes long before she is supposed to be old enough to say them.

    But in the middle of it all, Kara finds gifts she never expected. Among them the extraordinary love of strangers, friends who travelled distances to help, a husband who stands by her through it all. These gifts are the ones other people brought to Kara and Jason's doorstep.

    God brought them grace. The grace to see it through, to explain it to the ones of their four children who could grasp and understand the devastating situation, to continue to love one another.

    Kara takes her reader on a long, sometimes miserable, often joyful walk with cancer under her personal circumstances. Her emotions are real, her words tough and honest, her truth immeasurable.

    Recommendation

    Who needs to read The Hardest Peace? Anyone who has a loved one or close friend losing to cancere. Anyone who is seeking--truth, grace, identity, who God and Christ are, and the meaning to drawing a breath each day. Those who believe life is tougher for them than others will come away from this book knowing the truth and the real meaning of the word "tough." Meeting Kara is true joy!

    I had a hard time putting this book down. The author is so real. I would encourage anyone who has gone through a very difficult time or is currently going through one, to read this book.
