Description

New York Times best-selling author Jen Hatmaker, with playful hilarity, shameless honesty, and refreshing insight, assures listeners they have all the pluck they need for vibrant, courageous, grace-filled lives.

Jen Hatmaker believes backbone is the birthright of every woman. Women have been demonstrating resiliency and resolve since forever. They have incredibly strong shoulders to bear loss, hope, grief, and vision. She laughs at the days to come is how the ancient wisdom writings put it.

But somehow women have gotten the message that pain and failure mean they must be doing things wrong, that they messed up the rules or tricks for a seamless life. As it turns out, every last woman faces confusion and loss, missteps and catastrophic malfunctions, no matter how much she is doing "right". Struggle doesn't mean they're weak; it means they're alive.

Jen Hatmaker, beloved author, big sister emeritus, and chief BFF, offers another round of hilarious tales, frank honesty, and hope for the woman who has forgotten her moxie. Whether discussing the grapple with change ("Everyone, be into this thing I'm into! Except when I'm not. Then everyone be cool.") or the time she drove to the wrong city for a fourth-grade field trip ("Why are we in San Antonio?"), Jen parlays her own triumphs and tragedies into a sigh of relief for all normal, fierce women everywhere who, like her, sometimes hide in the car eating crackers but also want to get back up and get back out, to live undaunted in the moment no matter what the moments hold.

Ce que les critiques en disent

"The self-described low-grade Christian author narrates her own story. She provides anecdotes not included in the written text, which add more fun to the listening experience.... Hatmaker's use of sarcasm and self-deprecation is disarming as she tackles varied topics, making this book sound like a conversation with a trusted friend. Listeners should have a pen and paper ready to take down her recipes and helpful tips." (AudioFile)

Jen is hilarious!

Not too often that I read a book and relate so closely that I laugh out loud! This book is delightful, sweet, funny and practical. Not in a religious way because we all know that we need less religion and much more pure love in reality. Thanks Jen Hatmaker for being you, and for making your thoughts known. Michele

Honest, fresh writing.

I loved that Jen (the author) read the book - it provided a raw, honest interpretation of the content.
This book is an encouraging, uplifting, honest look at a woman's life - specifically a woman who has birthed a child and lived a few seasons. I would recommend this book as a gift, a personal read, and one to be revisited. It is definitely "for the ladies", and for a woman with a sense of humour, or at least appreciates a humorous approach to real life.

Not even Christian and I was LOL’ing

Despite my personal not-a-fan-of-religion beliefs, Jen had me laughing out loud to her funny stories about life, family, and all the food. She’s a great story teller and has a relatable outlook on life, if you’re the funny, don’t-take-everything-so-seriously sort. It’s a light and entertaining listen, glad I got the audio version.

Jen Hatmaker has nailed it again!

In Of Mess and Moxie, Jen uses her life experiences as a woman of Christ, mother, wife and author to depict the trials and triumphs of life. She is honest about what life throws at you, whether it's funny, serious, happy or sad and always leaves you with encouragement. I love how she interjects a few additional notations in the audio version of the book because she can, it's her book after all. : ) I also loved the "How To" topics she discussed and the recipes she always incorporates into her books. Her humor and relatable personality makes it very difficult to pause the book before the end.

Christian Brene Brown

I did not realize that I had downloaded a Christian book, and I knew nothing about the author. Similar flavor to Brenda Brown but without the researcher/academic vibe.

I loved the genuine quality of her story telling and her brass humor.

I find it unbelievable (from a psychological perspective) that she had nothing to heal in the respect to her parents/childhood. The idealized parent section was the only part that gave me pause.

But very enjoyable! I cried, I laughed, I'll recommends it to others.

Loved this listen so much!

Because I just barely finished this listen as I am writing this, so I haven't taken the time yet to fully let this book sink into my head. Yet, to say I LOVED this book seems small and simple. Jen had me laughing out loud, tearing up, relating to others and generally questing to be a better person for the time I spent with her story. For me, that says it all. I just ordered the hardback cover so that I can revisit the recipes and build my Netflix 'to watch' list. Couple that with a deep love and testimony of Jesus and this is the book for me.

didnt know it was religious

i think this book would apply to 30+ year old women who like wine and shirts that say " i love jesus but cuss alot", i am sure you have seen them or know them.

so i somehow missed that this book was written by a christian author. take that as you will, it is very obviously a religious text but it wasnt as "preachy" as some i have encountered or purchased by accident, like "present over perfect" that one was horrible and promptly returned.

the author has her funny moments and you can envision the life she has built for herself and family.

while this book was not for me and i do not think i would recommend it, i do think it is well written and has a target audience. the author is the narrator and she does a good job reading the book. i think women of a certain 30+ age group that are all about church and wine and possibly homeschooling their kids will love this book and author.

THE Best!!

I just knocked this bad boy out in two days. Jen is just the best. Not that I'm fan girling HER (read the book), but she is like America's BFF. She makes us all feel normal for being average, PTA-detesting, gluten-eating, non-gym membership using mamas. Love her!!

Outstanding

My book heart is full after listening to this book. I have never read one of Jen Hatmaker's books in the past, but I am so so happy I did. I follow her on Facebook and so enjoy her posts. Her sarcasm, sense of humor, and her unique phrases are like jelly to my peanut butter. But most of all her outlook on girlfriends is my favorite. Fan-girl your girlfriends. Yesssss. Just yes.

Hiding in the car listening to Jen

Jen hits it out of the park again. I laughed, I cried, I felt all the things.
