Praise

Advance praise for Everything Happens for a Reason
 
“This is a beautifully written, intelligent, soulful book. Kate Bowler’s story makes room for anger, for love, for faith and despair and prayer and silence. This story feels true, in the deepest way, and is necessary reading for all of us who long to walk faithfully and honestly through the darkest and most desolate of seasons.”—Shauna Niequist, New York Times bestselling author of Present Over Perfect
 
“Kate Bowler has stage IV cancer, and she faces it with courage and questions: Does everything happen for a reason? Is there a master plan? How can she best live with a beloved husband and young son while facing death? In this profound memoir she searches for answers with intelligence, honesty, and a wonderfully wry humor. She comes to the simplest conclusion of all: ‘Life is beautiful. Life is hard.’ Accepting these two truths side-by-side can change the way we live. As ordinary an act as making coffee becomes luminous with gratitude, and gratitude is its own kind of prayer. This is a book for all of us who have sought meaning in catastrophe, and needed a way to live on.”—Abigail Thomas, New York Times bestselling author of A Three Dog Life
 
“The Kate Bowler you will come to know in this book is 100 percent real: honest, brave, holy, ridiculous, profane, hilarious, human—her fierce and beautiful words will make you ugly-cry and laugh out loud inappropriately in public places, and they will make you long for the courage to tell the truth about your life. If you pay close enough attention, you might even turn the last page and actually do it—actually tell your truth. And your life will change.”—Amy K. Butler, senior minister, The Riverside Church
