Shipping Info

Sara Frankl lived with chronic pain for almost two decades as the result of a rare autoimmune disease, eventually becoming confined to her home before dying at the age of thirty-eight.  If anyone had a reason to focus on the unfairness of life, it was her.  Yet Sara accomplished something few can—she chose joy.  Choose Joy is a journey through suffering—not the particulars of Sara's disease but the state of her heart and the source of her strength.  Sara's words, lovingly collected and introduced by her dear friend Mary Carver, breathe with life, love, and endless hope.

"Sara was one of the kindest, most generouse souls I've ever known...This book {is} chock-full of

Sara Frankl entered into the arms of Jesus on September 24, 2011, but her legacy of choosing joy lives on.  She fully embraced every day moments, loved bolldly and exemplified that being homebound doesn't have to limit who you are in life, it just limits your location.  You can read Sara's story on her blog Gitzen Girl.

Mary Carver is a recovering perfectionist who writes about giving up on perfect and getting on with life.  She's also mom to two girls and wife to her high-school sweetheart.  Mary blogs about an imperfect life at Giving Up on Perfect, where she writes about family, faith, books, diet-friendly and fiber-filled foods like granola bars and nachos, celebrity look-alikes and chick flicks.  You know, the important stuff.  Mary is also an (in)courage contributor.

Everyone NEEDS to read this book!

This book is a MUST read for the new year. I read it straight through in 3 hours. I found Sara's blog the year before she passed and was always encouraged by her. This book is a journey through her hard, unimaginable struggles where she fought to find and really life joyfully regardless of how she felt. We all have a choice how we are going to respond to life...I want to choose joy like Sara did.
