Litfuse Review: Just Show Up: The Dance of Walking through Suffering Together by:Tippetts/Buteyn

Just Show Up: The Dance of Walking through Suffering Together
About the Book:
Kara Tippetts’s story was not a story of disease, although she lost her battle with terminal cancer. It was not a story of saying goodbye, although she was intentional in her time with her husband and four children. Kara’s story was one of seeing God in the hard and in the good. It was one of finding grace in the everyday. And it was one of knowing “God with us” through fierce and beautiful friendship.

In Just Show Up, Kara and her close friend, Jill Lynn Buteyn, write about what friendship looks like in the midst of changing life seasons, loads of laundry, and even cancer. Whether you are eager to be present to someone going through a difficult time or simply want inspiration for pursuing friends in a new way, this eloquent and practical book explores the gift of silence, the art of receiving, and what it means to just show up.

My Review:
Suffering....

 It hits us all at one time or another anywhere at anytime. Kara Tippetts story is not unheard of or not known. She was a beautiful young woman with a family that received ultimate healing when she returned to her Savior after a valiant fight with terminal cancer. She caused us to look at death differently, from Christ's point of view.

 Is death fair? Is cancer fair? NO! It is a terrible disease that causes us all to question God and I believe it is purely from the devil, himself. Kara and her close friend Jill collaborated on this book and described how their friendship evolved because of this disease and ultimately Kara's death. If a loved one will allow you to be present while they are undergoing their crossing over to meet Jesus, you need to take them up on it.

 It is a way for the love you share with that individual to grow even deeper and more long lasting. Join the two of these individuals as they navigate this tough road and show us what they learned especially through the tough days.

 A very touching eloquent book written straight from the heart!
