Kara Tippetts was the author of, Mundane Faithfulness, a blog that started out for moms where she shared about her family and her passion for parenting with kindness. Shortly after her blogging adventure started, Kara was diagnosed with breast cancer in the summer of 2012. Mundane Faithfulness transformed into a place where Kara processed her diagnosis and treatment, and where she articulated her heart in response to her pain. The more she wrote, the more her following grew; her fight to find God's grace in the midst of her hard encouraged thousands who related to Kara's message, that despite cancer and other struggles, the nearness of God was her good. She shares more with us in this sermon about how God is showing up in the midst of pain and suffering.
Update: Kara won her battle with breast cancer, going Home to Jesus, on March 22, 2015. This year, The Long Goodbye
, a documentary following Kara's journey was released on Netflix. Produced by filmmakers and married couple Jay and Sofia Lyons, ""The Long Goodbye"" features interviews with Kara and her family, and with those she influenced, including Joanna Gaines, Ann Voskamp, and Ellie Holcomb.
