And it was Beautiful Review

Kara Tippetts was just 38 when she passed away due to breast cancer. 38. I will be 36 in 2 weeks. Throughout her battle with cancer, she showed so much strength, dignity, I am awed by her grace. Simply awed. "And it was Beautiful" is HER words. Her words before cancer won the earthly war. They are her words that show the beauty and love of God in grand sunsets or mundane moments, even the darkest of the dark days. Kara Tippetts showed us not only how to live gracefully, but how to die gracefully as well.

About the book: 

And It Was Beautiful: Celebrating Life in the Midst of the Long Good-Bye (David C Cook, March 2016)

"I was here. I saw beauty. I embraced it." -Kara Tippetts

How do you live out extravagant love in the everyday moments? How do you celebrate grace when your life turns out differently than the one you dreamed?

Kara Tippetts discovered how to find joy in the small moments of life. She learned how to hold tight to hope even while battling intense physical and emotional pain. And she lived out the truth that God can redeem any story.

In her final book, Kara offers gentle reflections on living and dying well. She invites us to cultivate soft hearts even when we face great disappointment. Her ideas for living are hard-won, wrestled with in the crucible of family, illness, and faith.And her constant reminder is that whether we are in the midst of dark days or mundane moments Jesus is always there, life is surprisingly beautifuland God is forever good.
