Litfuse Review: The Hardest Peace by:Kara Tippetts

 The Hardest Peace: Expecting Grace in the Midst of Life's Hard
About the Book:
Kara Tippetts knows the ordinary days of mothering four kids, the joy of watching her children grow ... and the devastating 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.

About the Author:
Kara Tippetts and her husband, Jason, have four children and lead a church in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Cancer is only part of Kara's story. Her real fight is to truly live while facing a crushing reality. She blogs faithfully at mundanefaithfulness.com.

My Review:
 A touching tribute by a woman who is facing one of the greatest challenges of her life---stage 4 cancer. She shares with you in The Hardest Peace, the comfort she feels knowing that she will have to walk through fire but decides it's worth the risk. As she walks down this path she is learning to lean more on God's grace and understanding towards this peace that is hard fought.  So even though her hardest peace is a war being waged on the cancer invading her body, she wants all the readers of this fascinating book to be encouraged and uplifted in ways to help them on their journey to peace.

 The author guides us down her personal path of growth towards a peace that passes all understanding and in doing so, she hopes to encourage us to view our own path to peace a little differently. Each of the chapters in the book are very heartfelt tear jerking moments. There are also times that you will laugh till your sides hurt. I found myself agreeing with her numerous times on her views. Her faith seems very unwavering and I really liked that most about her. In the midst of her pain and trials she is able to shine!
