“Sara’s story only grew louder, braver, bolder with her death. It’s a story that we all need to keep hearing.” — Lisa-Jo Baker, bestselling author of Surprised by Motherhood

Sara Frankl knew she had a terminal disease, but she didn’t let it stop her from living. In the face of immeasurable pain, Sara chose joy — again and again. Her unforgettable message of hope and purpose lives on, even after her death, in her words. Choose Joy is a compilation of the lessons Sara learned while she was dying, written in her own words and sewn together by her close friend Mary Carver. It is a reminder to see the beauty in life, even when it looks nothing like you hoped or planned. In a world full of tragedy, choosing joy is no small task — but, as Sara knew, the importance lies in the choosing. Once you learn to make that choice, every day, no matter what happens, joy will come.
