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.

She read my diary
Any additional comments?
Just do yourself a favor and buy this book. However, if you buy the audio version, buy the print version too. I promise you won't regret either purchase.
Let me start with my favorite part of the audio version: Jen Hatmaker reads the book herself. I felt like she was sitting in front of me, talking to me. I also felt like she had just read my diary, because she seemed to know every struggle in my life.
I bought the Audible version because I do a lot of driving. Here's what happened when I listened.
1. I cried. Because she gets it. A sob session while driving, umm, maybe not so safe, but I survived and so did everyone else on the road.
2. I wanted to underline, copy, or somehow save particular sections of the book. So strong was my desire to remember these sections, that I may have grabbed my phone, paused the book, and attempted to dictate certain lines into a note on my phone. Did I mention I was driving?
3. I didn't want to get out of the car when I reached my destination. I just wanted to keep listening. How bad would it be to walk through Target with my phone on speaker trying to listen to the book?
4. I laughed. Because she's hilarious. HILARIOUS.
So, why buy the audio and print version? Because it's so cool to hear Jen read the book and you will want to listen to it more than once. But you will want the print version so you can highlight certain sections and refer to it later.
This book was what I needed at this time in my life. Also, I now have the courage to make beef bourguignon. How did Jen know that that I made a goal at the beginning of 2015 to make beef bourguignon and I keep eyeing Julia Childs' recipe in fear and trepidation? See what I mean about the diary part?

My favorite listen this year!
I just love this book. There's a little bit of everything all wrapped in to one big ball of grace and love. You will laugh and cry right along with Jen as she reads it to you. Definitely worth the listen!
