{{Book Review}} | Just Show Up


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*
I love this book and how it is very,real! That's the one thing I loved about Kara(though I never actually MET her), her blog and facebook posts were very real. I understand the emotions and pain all too well, but I also know the joy and love expressed in these pages! This book is a great examples of how to be there for people who are going through a hard time, no matter what it may be. I highly recommend this book to you!
