“Kara Tippetts’ life was dramatically changed in 2012 when she was first diagnosed with breast cancer. She shared honestly the painful journey of walking through suffering and looking for Jesus through her incredibly popular blog, www.mundanefaithfulness.com. She also wrote her life story in the book The Hardest Peace and was the co-author of Just Show Up, along with her friend Jill Buteyn.
In September of 2013 her diagnosis changed, as more cancer was found in her reproductive system and brain. She lived for the grace of time, time with her loved ones, and sharing her story of living life in grace. She passed away in March 2015. She was the wife of one excellent man, Jason, and the mother of four amazing children. Since her death, Jason has been parenting their children and leading the church the couple founded in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
