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.

Of Mess and Moxie: Wrangling Delight Out of This Wild and Glorious Life is the latest book by Jen Hatmaker, a Christian writer and speaker.
Jen Hatmaker got herself into trouble with some evangelicals last year due to comments she made about homosexuals. She rightly believes that Jesus loves everyone. So do I. I admire high profile authors and speakers such as Hatmaker, Beth Moore and other brave women.
Hatmaker's latest, Of Mess and Moxie: Wrangling Delight Out of This Wild and Glorious Life demonstrates to women that every one of them faces the same messes and struggles with life that she does. Hatmaker uses her own style of wittiness and strength to get through to readers. Women need to have a backbone...Hatmaker shows us how through her examples.
I enjoy Hatmaker's writing style and I recommend Of Mess and Moxie: Wrangling Delight Out of This Wild and Glorious Life.
