Through Kara’s beautiful telling of God’s faithfulness in the hard story for her life, she shows us the importance of embracing God’s calling in our life; letting go of the ‘idol’ image we have created of what our life should look like and trust Him.
She demonstrations the importance of showing BIG love in small, every day moments like folding laundry for her kids, snuggling tight to read a bedtime story or time spent across from her spouse with a good cup of coffee. It all matters. Every. Single. Moment.
Kara shares her hurts, fears and impossibly difficult moments with such love and grace that it moves us to begin to be honest about our own hard that we often want to keep hidden.
With encouragements like, “Hard is not the absence of God's goodness.” Kara helps us to know God’s goodness is near—even in hard places.
Kara shares from a place of deep peace and grace. She can do so because of the big love she has experienced in Christ. She is thoughtful in her story and she invites the reader in with some questions at the end of each chapter. She doesn't want just people who have cancer, for example, to read this book. She claims, and I agree, that this book is for anyone who has experienced, is experiencing, or will experience hard. Well, that's everyone. We cannot escape the hard of life, the sharp and rough edges of people and circumstances. We cannot escape it but we can have peace, hard peace, in the midst of it. Unless you have walked through hard with peace you can't speak with any authority on it. You have to experience it to share it honestly and without cliches. Kara has the authority to show us and tell us that it is possible to have hard peace when life isn't so gentle. She has been well equipped to speak on this topic.
Kara's book, The Hardest Peace, is a gift for the reader. The message Kara has lived to share is for anyone who has faced hard and that is each of us.
Pick up a copy for yourself and a friend today. You will be challenged and comforted by Kara's story.

This is an unfair review, because I haven't read the book. I'm not buying it, either, though a part of me wants to.Read more
