Publisher's Summary

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.

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.

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.
