I got through the entire book in 1 day. It was so touching and real. I couldn't listening. My heat broke and was filled with joy at the same time. I loved it!
I sat at the table holding this book out at arms length and said to my husband, "I love Kate Merrick, she's my friend." He got a quirky grin on his face and said "is she?" At which I gave a hearty resounding "Yes!" Even though I've never met Kate, and she doesn't know me, she has been my friend through this book - walking me out of bitterness back into a place of laughing with joy. And even though my loss was not as great as hers, my bitterness was probably more (I'm petty like that). But Kate had me at "you can throw this book across the room if you want too" (sorry Beth Moore, I admit I have chunked a book or two) - but Kate said it best - "but go pick it back up, because Jesus is worth it." Yes. He is. And I'm glad I picked it back up (I picked yours back up too Beth), and kept reading and kept going, because that's what faith is really all about - keeping going even when it seems ridiculous to do so. Thank you Kate for the gift of laughter and for opening your story and reaching out your hand and saying come along girl, there's joy to find! (ps, I have both the print copy and the audio version, and have also gifted quite a few copies - I love the way Kate writes and her story is both tragic and beautiful and she is so gracious to let us into those places and share how she walked through grief to the other side.)
