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.

Loved This!!

I loved hearing this (audible version)! Jen makes you feel like you are actually part of her "tribe." There were several times where I actually laughed out loud. I could hear the genuine love and compassion in her voice. In the end I felt like I was human and that I am not alone in this often messy life.

Yes yes yes!!

Love this beyond words. I am so glad she did the narration because it makes each word that much more heartfelt. She met her goal of making me Laugh. Out. Loud. And almost shed a tear because some words rang so true.
