Sara saw things differently.
Two weeks before her due date, Sara lost a healthy baby girl. Four weeks later, doctors discovered Stage IV colon cancer. A week after this terminal diagnosis, Sara set up a profile on Caring Bridge and began telling her story of the ''most wonderful terrible thing'' that had ever happened to her. Sara's transparency about the experience of the physical and emotional turmoil of her illness serves as a brilliant example of a woman firmly convinced that God holds victory over death.
In The Light Shines Through, you can walk with Sara and learn from the amazing love and peace that defined her difficult but beautiful last year and a half of her life on earth. Through her humble perspective and unabashed passion, Sara offers compelling lessons on how to live in the present, teaching others to see God's presence and abundant love in every moment--even those that are deeply painful.
"Suffering set Sara free to live her life more fully, more completely — to savor the moments that most of us find mundane. In The Light Shines Through, Sara has painted a masterpiece that painfully and wonderfully explores God's transforming and redeeming grace, not despite, but through our suffering."
