Publisher's Summary

For the Love is now a New York Times best seller! Don't miss Jen's latest title, also a New York Times best seller, Of Mess & Moxie.

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.

For the Love is also available in Spanish, Por el amor de...

Bravo!

Jen is an amazing writer who is both hilarious and inspiring. It was so refreshing to read and resonate with her. Her personality and humour come right through the audio - she is beautiful in every way. Thank you for being a genuine, integral and exemplary leader, Jen Hatmaker. What an inspiration you are to women (and men) everywhere. Five stars all the way.

So encouraging!

I loved hearing Jen read her own book, it was so well done, and hearing her tone of voice during different parts was extra special! I loved the message of this book, the serious, thoughtful parts challenged me. Meanwhile it was also lighthearted and often had me laughing out loud while listening. So thankful for these words from Jen!
