Overview

What lists and systems and self-help books have failed to do for young moms in the trenches, Jesus can accomplish blindfolded. Yes, moms are busy, they need a break, and they'd just like a shower. But they are also strong and brilliant and have the power to move mountains. Author and speaker Jen Hatmaker takes the words and deeds of Jesus, adds the humor of a young mom's life, and offers messages of grace and encouragement. She shows overburdened moms forty things Jesus doesn't expect them to do on their own.

Covering areas such as worry, marriage, priorities, money, and the trap of comparison, this lively Bible teacher brings Jesus's message alive in a format geared to the short moments moms have that can be allotted to reflection. This is a devotional for the woman inside the mom--the Bible student, the learner, the world-changer.

    A delightful little book

    Out of the Spin Cycle by Jen Hatmaker is a sweet little read that I'm sure all moms of all ages and experience will find a delight to read. This 40-day devotional book is full of delicious nuggets of wisdom that will help any mom feel more appreciated and understood, as well as come closer to Jesus Christ daily.

    Jen Hatmaker speaks very candidly and honestly about what it's really like to be a mom. She addresses several subjects, including comparing yourself to other moms, feeling like you have to be supermommy, and struggling with being unappreciated in your home. Her candid style brings lots of humor, grace, and love to this book.

    Forthright, faithful and fun devotional for Mom

    Out of the Spin Cycle by Jen Hatmaker is a espresso shot of encouragement for Christian moms trying to get it all right. Hatmaker has kept each chapter short, no more than two or three pages, so even the busiest mom can squeeze in reading a chapter a day. The chapters are filled with humorous anecdotes about her own children (Gavin sounds like a hoot!) as well as hilarious and heartwarming stories of motherhood from others. Each one encourages readers to let go of trying to be perfect and to trust God for the strength to get through each day. Sitting down to read this book each night felt like sitting down for a cup of coffee with a good friend who is glad to listen to your tales of woe and then offer the perfect advice to soothe your worried soul. She reminds us that no one is going to get everything exactly right, but we need to focus on the important things: teaching our children about Jesus and to love our neighbors. The book is a perfect gift for a mom-to-be or a mom with lots of experience. Both will find encouragement and a good laugh from a terrific author who has been there.
