When life hands you the unthinkable, you must find new ways to see. Such is the ground on which Nancy rebuilt her world after losing her husband to brain cancer when their twins were mere toddlers. She was thirty-seven. Psalm 121: “I will lift up mine eyes unto the mountains: From whence shall my help come?” carried Nancy, quite literally from New York City to the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, where she recast her life. Here she could trust that faith would allow her to frame the whole of her experience: life and death; health and illness; joy and sadness; surety and vulnerability; past and present.
Faith, too — combined with bold living — gave her the courage to risk love again with a former TV anchor who also happened to be widowed with two children.
Both Sides Now centers around the universal question: How is it that you hold life and death in the same moment? Sometimes life really is everything at once.
