Choose Joy by Sara Frankl and Mary Carver

Joy: Finding Hope and Purpose  Life Hurts

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.

My Thoughts:
This book was very well written and completely awe inspiring. Suffering from daily physical pain, Sara never gave up and in fact shows the warrior inside each one of us. She is the definition of what it means to run this race strong. She lived her life well and choose joy even when life wasn't easy through a series of writing her lessons on a blog, which eventually Mary Carver who knew Sara wrote a book. This book is an incredible reminder that we all have blessings in our life that we can be thankful for. This book reminds me that Sara is rare individual and we all have people like this in our life, we just need to spend time with them to glean from them. You'll laugh, you'll cry, but you will love this book! Go pick up a copy today! I give this book 5/5  stars. Thank you to Faith Words for providing me a copy.
