So life kept me from picking up the book until this week, which is probably a good thing, since I didn't want to stop reading it once I started. Before I go on, here's a bit about the book from the publisher's website:
Jen Hatmaker 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 reveals how to practice kindness, grace, truthfulness, vision, and love to ourselves and those around us.
If you're not familiar with Jen Hatmaker's name, chances are you are familiar with her writing. She came to the attention of a lot of moms with her honest and hysterically funny blog post about the end of the school year and in particular, her son's thrown together Ben Franklin costume. It cracks me up every time I read it. She brings that same humor to this book (and all of her writing), but also approaches faith and family and loving Jesus with the same level of enthusiasm and honesty. This book made me laugh, it made me think, it made me have some discussions about various things with my husband, it made me want to pass a copy of this book on to every Christian woman I know. Seriously, read it.
I accidentally bought two copies of this book, so am going to pass a copy on to one of you. I'm not going to use Rafflecopter for this, I'm just going to pick the comment that speaks most to me. So leave me a comment below and let me know why you need/want to read this book! I'll give you guys until October 22, 2015 at noon Pacific time to enter and then I will choose.
