Letter to my readers upon my death

Letter to my readers upon my death

I just wrote the simple title: Letter to my readers upon my death, and I'm undone. This is a letter I have written in my head for months, but putting the first words on paper is my undoing. I cannot begin to use this simple language to express the heart of what I feel for this community. There is so much love in this community I can barely take it all in at times. I have been prayed for, cried over, my story shared over and over. You all can't know the love I have felt from each of you.

Kara Tippetts went Home to Jesus on March 22, 2015, after a long battle with breast cancer.

Born Kara Lynne Thewlies on July 14, 1976, she grew up in Noblesville, Indiana, and earned her BS in English Education at Indiana University. She met her husband Jason Tippetts at Eagle Lake Camp, a Christian camp located in Colorado Springs, Colorado. They were married on May 16, 1998.

Momentary Tears

Momentary Tears

Every once in a while, I get a text from Kara on a Sunday morning asking me to come sit with her if she is not feeling up to going to church and she wants Mickey to be able to go. I love those Sunday mornings with her, listening to her thoughts and dreams, hearing how God ministers to her heart in the darkest hours, discussing what we look forward to about Heaven.

Several weeks ago I received one of these texts, and when I arrived, the house was hustling and bustling with activity; a production company was in town from Hollywood working on a short documentary about Kara and her story.
