Kara Tippetts and Jill Lynn Buteyn have written Just Show Up - the dance of walking through suffering together. This book is POWERFUL. I am sure you can't think of anyone - maybe even yourself - that you know who has NOT gone through suffering of some sort. It's everywhere and it's inevitable. But when we suffer, Christ has a plan to give us His hands and feet here on this earth to help us - to come alongside and encourage us and help us get through. Through Kara's personal story of disease, we learn what it is to suffer alongside someone - to give the gift of silence, the art of receiving and what it means to just show up. I highly recommend this - for personal reading or even a study - I think sharing it with others would add much to the reading of this book. Let's all read it and learn how to come alongside and be the Body - it is a VERY valuable resource.
