“Those who are hidden in Jesus, though they suffer, will discover a more beautiful ending—or should I say beginning—than they ever could imagine.”
Katherine Clark was just an average wife and mother with two young children when she was in a tragic playground accident in late May 2009. A little boy playing on the jungle gym jumped and landed on Kate's head, knocking her over and snapping her neck. Kate was paralyzed from the neck down. The doctors diagnosed her with quadriplegia and said she would never walk again.
This terrifying prognosis could have been the end of the story. But instead, God chose to work a profound miracle in Kate's life and in the life of her family.
Where I End tells the incredible story. Kate describes how God's presence carried her through the trying journey of re-learning to walk, both physically and spiritually. Throughout, she shares the deep theological truths that sustained her as she and her family traveled this difficult road.
Where I End offers hope, encouragement, and a timely reminder of who Jesus is: God with us. In a reflective, literary style, Kate invites readers to see pain and suffering within the context of God's loving, tender, powerful care—and there find hope.
Katherine Clark is wife to a gifted theologian and mom to two bright kids, all of whom bring merriment and humor to her days. A native of Detroit, Kate has had the privilege of living in several great cities, including Dallas, Toronto, Grand Rapids, and Chicago. Kate studied at the University of Michigan, Wayne State University, and Dallas Theological Seminary. With a background in psychology, she has spent much of the last twenty years working and writing for a nationwide Christian radio and counseling ministry. When she's not writing, Kate enjoys spending time outdoors, cooking new recipes with her kids, and immersing herself in books. The Clark family currently resides in Wheaton, IL and worships together at Church of the Resurrection.
"I've heard a great many stories about people who have suffered life-altering injuries. But some rise above the rest...and that's how I feel about this book. I give Where I End my strong recommendation." -Joni Eareckson Tada, Joni and Friends International Disability Center
