New York Times bestselling author Jen Hatmaker, with playful hilarity, shameless honesty, and refreshing insight, assures readers they have all the pluck they need for vibrant, courageous, grace-filled lives.
Jen Hatmaker believes backbone is the birthright of every woman. Women have been demonstrating resiliency and resolve since forever. They have incredibly strong shoulders to bear loss, hope, grief, and vision. She laughs at the days to come is how the ancient wisdom writings put it.
But somehow women have gotten the message that pain and failure mean they must be doing things wrong, that they messed up the rules or tricks for a seamless life. As it turns out, every last woman faces confusion and loss, missteps and catastrophic malfunctions, no matter how much she is doing “right.” Struggle doesn’t mean they’re weak; it means they’re alive.
Jen Hatmaker, beloved author, Big Sister Emeritus, and Chief BFF, offers another round of hilarious tales, frank honesty, and hope for the woman who has forgotten her moxie. Whether discussing the grapple with change (“Everyone, be into this thing I’m into! Except when I’m not. Then everyone be cool.”) or the time she drove to the wrong city for a fourth-grade field trip (“Why are we in San Antonio?”), Jen parlays her own triumphs and tragedies into a sigh of relief for all normal, fierce women everywhere who, like her, sometimes hide in the car eating crackers but also want to get back up and get back out, to live undaunted “in the moment” no matter what the moments hold.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This is the fourth book I've read by Jen Hatmaker. For everyone who has their panties in a bundle over Jen and what she's said/done in the past, I have this to say: Jen is still writing about loving her people well. She is still writing funny stories about her life and sharing personal things most Christians would be too afraid of sharing - much less sharing in a book read by thousands - lest they be judged by their fellow Christians. "Love God and love your neighbor as yourself" were the 2 commandments highlighted by Jesus as the MOST IMPORTANT. Not love God and condemn everyone who doesn't agree with you. It isn't our job to condemn; it's God's. It's our job to love. And Jen does that like a BOSS and helps her readers do that better too.
