About the Author
SARA FRANKL died in 2011 at the age of 38. Her last few years were spent blogging about her illness (a.k.a. GitzenGirl), keeping journals and correspondence, and painting. Her blog's cumulative total was eventually 2,000,000 unique visitors a month and still averages over 20,000 monthly.

Throughout that time, every "normal" aspect of her life was slowly stripped away as her body grew weaker and the pain increased. But something else was increasing throughout those years...Sara's trust in God which resulted in Sara exuding this fantastically beautiful spirit of joy.
Through her blog, when she was still with us, and now through this book, she gently takes us by the hand and shows us how to find the "joy (that )is hidden in the cracks, in the unforeseen places God builds into our hardest times".
I can not come close to explaining the impact of Sara's life- her words. I can only tell you that I've ordered (pre-ordered) books for all my reading family members and friends. (For the non-readers, I'm going to suggest the Audible version)And I wish I could send every single one of you a copy.
Here's to learning from Sara's beautiful life, how better to live our own~
(I was given this book before the release date for review...but I've since ordered 3 more and I'm about to send another 3 to friends-)
If there is a heaven, she is there.
You will never be sorry for buying this book and meeting Sara ... She was a Living Prayer !
