This book is not just about her accident and rehabilitation, however She describes what happened with her family an Publishers aren t always eager to print memoirs these days and for good reason I suppose I don t presume to know the ins and outs of publishing nor can I see the industry from their perspective As a reader however, Where I End by Katherine Elizabeth Clark, is the perfect example of why I wish the industry would be quicker to print these beautiful stories that hold timeless truths.
Katherine skillfully weaves hope through a story riddled with tragedy and sadness I was moved to tears but importantly, through this book, I was moved to reflection I hugged my children the next morning in a whole new way As a mother who has also experienced tragedy, I felt like I was right there with her In the pain, in the grief, and even in the triumph Her perspective on scriptural truths comes from a heart truly touched by the Master and that was clear throughout this book It was a super fast read yet Wow This was such an incredible story of faith in the midst of life shattering circumstances As someone who has seen God work miracles in my life and others I understood so much on an emotional level Maybe it is because I am a person who loves books and the written word I loved the many references from books that she has read as well as numerous examples from the bible I will say at times these other references overshadowed her own personal story but it also enriched it somehow This is a book that I picked up and could not put down We are broken people in a broken world so I feel this book is something that everyone will be able to relate to on some level We all encounter hardships and things that will forever change the course of our life This book is lovely With literary wealth and theological integrity, Where I End is a story that needs to be read and re read I was struck with the beautiful edgyness of Kate Clark s theology one that allows those who have been deeply wounded to be so, yet with hope.
The only faithful response to living this story is to tell it This is the personal, true story of a figurative journey through drastic life change, physical disability, and faith Kate Clark had embarked on another average suburban mom day of helping at her son s school, and mothering her younger daughter when a tragic accident altered that trajectory forever Playing at recess with the school children, Kate is the unsuspecting landing for a child s fall from the top of the jungle gym He breaks an arm, she severs her spinal cord and becomes a quadriplegic tetraplegia is the new correct term This book recounts in her own words her miraculous recovery beyond what any doctors suspected, her community of support and faith, and her own fai
I thought this book was inspiring and the story of Kate s accident and injury was what made me turning the pages right away This book also had me turning the pages because of the fact that Kate lives in my backyard, which also helped me to relate I cannot imagine how the innocence of playing with her children ended up with her being a paralygic However, just because she received a diagnosis doesn t mean she was going to allow her to keep her down I loved how her faith was strong in this book, but her book wasn t just about her accident or Rehab She talks about what it was like for her family to go through the process and for her children I think this book was great and inspiring I found her story to be strong and encouraging This book will profoundly impact you, change your attitude and help your faith I received an a I couldn t finish this It wasn t for me or I wasn t in the mood for it It is also cringe worthy In fact that Katherine has the worst thing happening to her When she plays with some kids, she fractures her back and doesn t feel anything from neck to toes any And I cried and had shivers through my skin.
It was painful to read and I am sorry for the author Maybe she got through this safely in the end, but I couldn t know I don t think I ll ever try to read this book There are a lot of books out there.
