Jen Hatmaker’s Of Mess and Moxie is the perfect book to pick up when your best friend is unavailable, your husband is buried in his den, and your kids are making you rethink that whole parenting thing. Funny, poignant, and smart, Jen Hatmaker is fully engaged. She likes sex. She is a woman who takes life, but not herself, seriously. The Washington Post calls her “relatable.” (Oct. 31, 2016). She reminds me of a G-rated Anne Lamott. (That’s a high compliment.)

Hatmaker is a pastor’s wife, mother of five children, and a speaker in high demand, especially among Christian women’s groups. She and her family starred in an HGTV series, “My Big Family Renovation” for six months as they remodeled their home.

Nelson Books, 2015. Buy now: [ Amazon ] [ Kindle ]

 

ERB: I read your book last week and thoroughly enjoyed it. I was particularly intrigued by the central theme of grace. Why is the message of grace so important and so timely today? Why is it worth, as you say, fighting for?

JH: I just turned 41, and am likely halfway done with my life, more or less. What I see at this point is that everyone is doing their best. When I was in my twenties, I knew everything.
