The Hardest Peace by Kara Tippetts

When I agreed to read The Hardest Peace and share my thoughts, I didn’t know anything about Kara Tippetts. What I did know is that my family is going through a difficult time, and I longed to move past “fear and control and toward peace and grace,” as stated on the back cover of the book. I figured if Kara could find peace in the midst of mothering four children and living with stage IV cancer, that she might have a thing or two to teach me.

And she does. In The Hardest Peace, Kara doesn’t offer pat answers. She doesn’t act like devastating situations are a piece of cake. She admits that life is incredibly hard and shares how she has made peace with her situation by accepting that she is not the author of her story. She reminds us that God is in control of everything, including our pain and suffering.

What touched me the most was Kara’s joy and peace in the midst of a terrible situation. I was encouraged to seek God in the midst of my hard and to turn my story over to Him, remembering that He is the author of my story. Letting go of control and fighting through fear is hard, but if Kara can do it, so can I.

    I really want to read the Hardest Peace. I have read some of Kara’s writing on her blog and it is beautiful and sincere. I am living with chronic illness while homeschooling my children, three of whom have special needs.

  2. I would love to read Kara’s book. I think it would be helpful for myself and family.
    God bless

    It just amazes me how she could have such peace in her situation. Makes me think twice when I get upset about the littlest things.

    I’d love to read the book; this year has been such a struggle to find peace. I know that God will use it to bless many! Thanks for sharing about it with us!

    I want to read The Hardest Peace because I believe it will not only help me as I watch my own mom struggle with breast cancer, but I also know it will help me be a more compassionate nurse as I view my oncology patients through a new lens of peace.

  6. Jessica says:

    I would love to win The Hardest Peace and pass it on to a friend that has fought breast cancer.
