9781455562817: Choose Joy: Finding Hope and Purpose When Life Hurts

"Sara's story only grew louder, braver, bolder with her death. It's a story that we all need to keep hearing." --Lisa-Jo Baker, bestselling author of Surprised by Motherhood
Sara Frankl knew she had a terminal disease, but she didn't let it stop her from living. In the face of immeasurable pain, Sara chose joy--again and again. Her unforgettable message of hope and purpose lives on, even after her death, in her words.
CHOOSE JOY is a compilation of the lessons Sara learned while she was dying, written in her own words and sewn together by her close friend Mary Carver. It is a reminder to see the beauty in life, even when it looks nothing like you hoped or planned.
In a world full of tragedy, choosing joy is no small task--but, as Sara knew, the importance lies in the choosing. Once you learn to make that choice, every day, no matter what happens, joy will come.

About the Author:

SARA FRANKL entered into the arms of Jesus on September 24, 2011, but her legacy of Choosing Joy lives on. Sara's writing tells about her commitment to embracing the life God had planned. Her illness stripped her of the potential for a job and family, but that didn't stop Sara from chasing down community. You can read Sara's story on her blog, www.gitzengirl.blogspot.com. To assist in continuing Sara's discipleship, visit www.choosejoyfoundation.com.
MARY CARVER is a writer, speaker, and recovering perfectionist. She lives for good books, spicy queso, and television marathons, but she lives because of God's grace. Mary writes about her imperfect life with humor and honesty, encouraging women to give up on perfect and get on with life, at www.givinguponperfect.com. She is also a regular contributor to incourage.me, MomAdvice.com, and MothersofDaughters.com. Mary and her husband live in Kansas City with their two daughters.
