In life's toughest moments, how do you go on living? Kate Bowler has been exploring this question ever since she was diagnosed with stage IV cancer at age 35. In a profound, heartbreaking and unexpectedly funny talk, she offers some answers -- challenging the idea that everything happens for a reason and sharing hard-won wisdom about how to make sense of the world after your life is suddenly, completely changed. I believe that in the darkness, even there, there will be beauty and there will be love, she says.
