And It Was Beautiful is a compilation of blog posts written by Kara Tippetts (as shared on her Mundane Faithfulness Blog), yet they flow seamlessly and create a wonderful book. It is both a testimony of her faith in trusting God through all circumstances and a phenomenal posthumous tribute to Kara.
'Celebrating life in the midst of the long goodbye'~the tagline for the book title~sums up Kara's story. Kara shares her heart, her heartache, and her journey as a wife, mother, sister and friend. In the book, Kara shares her breast cancer diagnosis, surgery, treatment, recovery, remission, recurrence and a terminal diagnosis. Kara reveals both raw emotion and confidence in her Savior's plan for her life.
I can't imagine what Kara's journey was like, but that is one reason I wanted to read her book. Because to grow my own faith, I can learn from the testimony of others. And Kara's testimony is one of the most powerful I have ever witnessed.
