After a long battle with breast cancer, Kara Tippetts went home to be with Jesus on Sunday, March 22, 2015. Our prayers and support go out to her husband Jason, their four children, and the congregation they led together in Colorado Springs.
Even as she entered hospice and neared the end of her time on earth, cancer was only part of Kara’s story. Her real fight was to truly live while facing the crushing reality that her body was failing. Jay Lyons, a friend and producer, spent several days with Kara and her family to put together a short docmentary trailer. Here, he captures the emotional journey that occured as Kara began to say her long goodbye.
Kara Tippetts knows the mundane but rich days of mothering four kids, the joy of watching her children grow, and the devastating reality of stage-four cancer.
In The Hardest Peace, she invites readers to see the grace of the everyday in all seasons of life and to live well even when the living is hard. Kara explores the hardest questions of life with rare beauty and honesty. But most of all, she draws them back to the God who is present, in the ordinary and the suffering, and shapes every life into the best story of all.
