For the Love by Jen Hatmaker

My review:

I really enjoyed this book. I laughed out loud throughout the entire thing. I lover her sense of humor. There were a few times while reading this book that I had a hard time following along or understanding what she was saying. But overall, I loved it. The chapters were fairly short so it was easy to pick up and read a few chapters here and there. I would definitely recommend this book. It is a book i plan to read again and purchase a hard copy of in the future. 4 stars!

Book description (from Amazon):

Best-selling author Jen Hatmaker is convinced life can be lovely and fun and courageous and kind. She reveals with humor and style how Jesus’ embarrassing grace is the key to dealing with life’s biggest challenge: people. The majority of our joys, struggles, thrills, and heartbreaks relate to people, beginning with ourselves and then the people we came from, married, birthed, live by, go to church with, don’t like, don’t understand, fear, compare ourselves to, and judge. Jen knows how the squeeze of this life can make us competitive and judgmental, how we can lose love for others and then for ourselves. She reveals how to:

Break free of guilt and shame by dismantling the unattainable Pinterest life.

Learn to engage our culture’s controversial issues with a grace-first approach.
Be liberated to love and release the burden of always being right.
Identify the tools you already have to develop real-life, all-in, know-my-junk-but-love-me-anyway friendships.
Escape our impossible standards for parenting and marriage by accepting the standard of “mostly good.”
Laugh your butt off.
In this raucous ride to freedom for modern women, Jen Hatmaker bares the refreshing wisdom, wry humor, no-nonsense faith, liberating insight, and fearless honesty that have made her beloved by women worldwide.
I was given a copy of this book through Netgalley and Thomas Nelson in exchange for my honest review which has been given.
