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.

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.
