Jim Daly released the following statement in response to the passing of Kara Tippetts.
Today, the world said goodbye to a godly and courageous woman.
Kara Tippetts, wife to Jason and mother to four young children, went home to the Lord at the age of 38. In her battle with cancer, she showed all of us what dying well looks like. The peace she found in God was hard fought, borne out of a deep and profound trust that He is present in pain and that He is good and faithful. She leaves behind more than a family who loves and adores her and a community who was inspired by her bold and brave witness. She leaves behind an enduring legacy of a life well-lived. Kara’s journey has been chronicled on her blog, “Mundane Faithfulness,” and I was privileged to interview the Tippetts several months ago – it’s a conversation no one in the studio will ever forget.
We rest in the knowledge that Kara is now face-to-face with her Savior, yet we continue to pray for His comfort to surround Jason and their children as they grieve. We’d ask our friends to do the same.
