Funny, sarcastic (in the best of ways), real . . . and she "gets it." That's Jen Hatmaker
Having her everyday I'm-an-average-American-Christian-and-very-comfortable life interrupted by God rocked Jen Hatmaker's world, and if you read her book on the experience, it just might rock yours. Hatmaker gives readers a raw, gut-honest -- and sometimes "bustin' a gut" -- account of her journey from the comfort of her nice suburban we've-got-it-made-in-the-shade pastor's wife lifestyle to a place that, at least at first, was definitely out of her comfort zone but that became the place she most wanted to be: Smack-dab in the middle of God's plan for His church, His body, His bride. And she did it barefoot, no less! (For the scoop on that, you'll have to read her story.) Her conversational writing style and short chapters make it an easy read . . . unless you engage your heart. Once you do that -- open yourself up to what she's saying -- if you're not careful, you might just find yourself also pouring over the many resources and "influential writings" she references at the end of each chapter, and, ultimately, discover your own longing for a God-interruption. At least I pray so.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
