Description

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.

    This is the first Jen Hatmaker book I have read, and I'm not a reader, and I can't wait to pick up another one!

    So real, funny, intelligent and gracious...just what I needed as I emerged from post partum depression and deep pain at the hands of church leaders after the birth of our first child. THANK YOU, Jen Hatmaker, and all who contributed to this book!

    Admittedly I'm not a huge reader of books. I'm glad I have gotten to hear Jen speak and heard about this book. I began reading it and couldn't put it down. Many of the items in the book spoke directly to me, consisted of thoughts I've had, etc. Thank you Jen for sharing your talents and wisdom with "For the Love".

    This book puts words to my heart's deepest cry for authentic, intimate and grace-filled community in the Church. Thank you for being so real and relevant to the rest of us [who don't always fit in the box]. Your transparency breathes life into the lungs of wives and moms and church folks like me who are weary of the uphill struggle to do life & church differently than the Midwestern Bible Belt that has lost so many souls for its judgement. This book was a gift...thanks for writing it just for ME. 😉

    I purchased the audio version. The narrator (author) was so HYPER that I was exhausted after listening to 4 chapters. I am sure she had a good message to convey but she needs to take a valium before narrating in the future. Don’t purchase the audio version.
  • One of the best books I've ever read!

    For the Love is exactly what my heart needed but didn't know it. It is witty, real, encouraging, convicting, thought provoking and just plain good! Jen's way of writing literally feels like your talking to your best friend and I love that. If you're considering getting this book do yourself a favor and get it NOW!! You won't regret it, I promise!! Thank you, Jen Hatmaker for your wisdom and humor and encouragement, you've made me love Jesus more and want to love others abundantly!

    I absolutely loved this book. I highlighted most all of it (so now it’s a very colorful ibook) and have shared many different parts with various people. I adore Jen's style of writing and her humor. She covers many aspects of our daily life and offers help and inspiration. I love Jen's love for Jesus and pray that the Lord continues to use her in mighty ways!
  • This book is a WINNER!

    In a culture that insists that women do it all, Jen dismantles the illusion of perfection in exchange for grace and love. She lifts the burden with humor and authenticity. For the Love makes room in our lives for what matters most: our relationships—relationships with our God, families, husband, kids, friends, and neighborhood. It's a no-brainer—this book will change the way you live your everyday life.
