Of Mess and Moxie: Wrangling Delight Out of This Wild and Glorious Life Reviews

    Somewhere along the way I got the idea that Jen Hatmaker was mainstream and orthodox. I had seen her books around and had the idea that she wasn?t really anything radical...just another nice women?s teacher. But then last year I heard of her response to the Nashville Statement and ...

    Jen Hatmaker does it AGAIN! If you read and loved her previous book, For The Love, then this book is for you! I laughed so hard at the hilarious parts...and then cried real tears as she reached down into the tender places that needed her words. Jen tells the truth and then wraps it...

    Of Mess and Moxie has given me permission. Permission to be exactly who I am, permission to create, permission to fight for what I believe in and to build the kind of rich, wild, moxie-filled community that exudes love, grace and acceptance. "This wild and glorious life" is so full of ...

    With wit and whimsy, tenderness and tenacity, Jen Hatmaker once again balances the sacred and the sarcastic, giving her readers permission to admit their messes and live with unashamed moxie. Of Mess and Moxie was cathartic and refreshing, leaving me with a sense of having spent an aft...

    If you're a Christian woman and you haven't heard of Jen Hatmaker, you might be living under a rock. Her previous books (7, Interrupted, For The Love, etc) have been bestsellers, accompanied by rave reviews and scores of Christian women following Jen on social media and attending confe...

    I'm giving this book a 3.5 star rating but rounding it up to 4 stars because I liked it more than my average 3 star but it isn't quite what I would consider a 4 (picky, I know). This was a funny, relatable, and meaningful read. I think it would suit a variety of age ranges and in di...

    Of Mess and Moxie is Jen Hatmaker's love letter to the girls - the young ones, the old ones, the ones in the middle - who are walking this journey of life in all it's joy and sadness. The girls who are nailing it and the girls who feel like they just don't measure up. The girls who hav...

    This book was fantastic! It's full of funny stories, great recipes and lots of tidbits about how to navigate this messy thing called life. Jen Hatmaker is one of my favorite authors because her outlook on life makes you feel like you've known her for years. She seems like the kind of f...

    Oh my word, people... you've got to read this book. I just laughed and cried and related through every page. Jen Hatmaker is every woman. Somehow she nails exactly what you're thinking. It's basically a memoir about so many things... girlfriends, marriage, parenting, church, cooking, N...

    I received and Advanced Reader Copy in exchange for my honest review: Jen Hatmaker does such a great job of relating to her readers that this book feels so much more like a conversation among friends than a memoir. Its incredibly heartfelt, with the moxie shown in Jen's hilarious sense...

    Of all the Jen Hatmaker books I've read, this one feels like the best one. Maybe it's just the best one for this season of life. (But it's not just for women in one season of life.) Reading this book is like receiving a letter from a dear friend. I couldn't wait to open it and see what...

    I wanted to love this book. I follow her on social media, and she's warm and funny and sometimes makes me cry. She's one of those social media personalities that you feel like you know. I was excited to read this book; I was expecting it to be both funny and meaningful, and it was kind...

    I've heard it said that the most powerful words are, "Me, too!" Jen Hatmaker, Queen of Authenticity, brilliantly draws her readers into her story with shouts of, "Me, too!" It's reassuring and comforting to know that we're normal in our wondering, searching, and whole hearted quest...

    Okay - someone gets to go first right? Y'all Jen Hatmaker makes me laugh and cry and sometimes these things happen simultaneously! I was blessed enough to receive an ARC of this new book. I cannot count the number of times that I felt like Jen must have been spying on my life. She is s...

    When I read 'Of Mess and Moxie' I highlighted phrases, dog-eared pages, underlined passages, attached post-it notes, and wrote exclamation marks in the margins because so much of it spoke to me. When I started writing this endorsement, so much of the book had been marked up that I had ...

    I can?t remember the last time a book made me laugh smack dab from my toes or sob from somewhere deep in my heart, or shout a ?hallelujah? or two! Ms. Hatmaker?s latest book, Of Mess and Moxie, was an intriguing surprise for me. When I received an Advance Reader?s Copy from t...

    I was blessed to receive an advanced readers copy in exchange for my honest review and let me just say that Jen has done it again!!! Reading Of Mess and Moxie is like sitting down with your bestie and having a conversation. She speaks to our hearts and our minds so openly and without r...

    Another fantastic addition to the Jen Hatmaker collection of books. As we've come to expect from her books, Of Mess and Moxie is filled with 'How To' chapters, delicious recipes and now wisdom for all the various stages of our lives. Hatmaker's sarcasm fills the pages as she takes us f...

    Jen Hatmaker proves once again that she is FOR us, and she gets us. This is the type of book that makes you want to get on the phone with friends and say, "Here, let me read this to you." This book will have you laughing and crying and feeling every emotion in between. You will also ge...

    Reading Of Mess and Moxie is like chatting with your salty friend who tells you like it is in the most wise, loving, honest, and necessary way. Jen Hatmaker has managed to touch on almost every subject that women are facing today - marriage, parenting, church, friendship, trying to mak...

    As a busy wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, daycare provider, preteen girls coach, mentor and friend, my life has seen it's fair share of mess. Reading Jen Hatmaker's newest book, "Of Mess and Moxie," has been a breath of fresh air to my soul. It's like Jen looked deep into me and ...

    This book came into my life during a year of healing from some deep wounds. My typical MO is to push the heartache aside and carry on but I just couldn't. In OMAM, Jen writes of these moments. Life sometimes hurts. It is also hysterical at times. What I found in these pages was not a m...

    I just love her books. It also makes me want to try harder to have a serious group of friends. ...

    Jen hit it out of the park with this one. I've never read a Jen book that didn't speak to me, but Of Mess and Moxie took it past that. It's easy to get lost in the mess of life--the mundane, boring, seemingly average mess. OMAM is for ALL the girls--the ones in EVERY stage of life, whe...

    As a fan of Jen Hatmaker's work, I was thrilled to receive an advanced copy of Of Mess and Moxie. This book is the perfect follow-up to For The Love. Jen invites the reader to embrace who they are while at the same time gently encouraging them to be the person that God has made them to...

    My young son was very upset with me for writing so much in this book, since WE DO NOT WRITE IN BOOKS. But I couldn't help myself. Jen's words just call out to be underlined, circled, arrowed, asterisked, and amened all over the place. You're going to need a fancy new pen or five. Th...

    I've heard it said that the most powerful words are, "Me, too!" Jen Hatmaker, Queen of Authenticity, brilliantly draws her readers into her story with shouts of, "Me, too!" It's reassuring and comforting to know that we're normal in our wondering, searching, and whole hearted quest...

    Okay - someone gets to go first right? Y'all Jen Hatmaker makes me laugh and cry and sometimes these things happen simultaneously! I was blessed enough to receive an ARC of this new book. I cannot count the number of times that I felt like Jen must have been spying on my life. She is s...

    When I read 'Of Mess and Moxie' I highlighted phrases, dog-eared pages, underlined passages, attached post-it notes, and wrote exclamation marks in the margins because so much of it spoke to me. When I started writing this endorsement, so much of the book had been marked up that I had ...

    I can?t remember the last time a book made me laugh smack dab from my toes or sob from somewhere deep in my heart, or shout a ?hallelujah? or two! Ms. Hatmaker?s latest book, Of Mess and Moxie, was an intriguing surprise for me. When I received an Advance Reader?s Copy from t...

    I was blessed to receive an advanced readers copy in exchange for my honest review and let me just say that Jen has done it again!!! Reading Of Mess and Moxie is like sitting down with your bestie and having a conversation. She speaks to our hearts and our minds so openly and without r...

    Another fantastic addition to the Jen Hatmaker collection of books. As we've come to expect from her books, Of Mess and Moxie is filled with 'How To' chapters, delicious recipes and now wisdom for all the various stages of our lives. Hatmaker's sarcasm fills the pages as she takes us f...

    Jen Hatmaker proves once again that she is FOR us, and she gets us. This is the type of book that makes you want to get on the phone with friends and say, "Here, let me read this to you." This book will have you laughing and crying and feeling every emotion in between. You will also ge...

    Reading Of Mess and Moxie is like chatting with your salty friend who tells you like it is in the most wise, loving, honest, and necessary way. Jen Hatmaker has managed to touch on almost every subject that women are facing today - marriage, parenting, church, friendship, trying to mak...

    As a busy wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, daycare provider, preteen girls coach, mentor and friend, my life has seen it's fair share of mess. Reading Jen Hatmaker's newest book, "Of Mess and Moxie," has been a breath of fresh air to my soul. It's like Jen looked deep into me and ...

    This book came into my life during a year of healing from some deep wounds. My typical MO is to push the heartache aside and carry on but I just couldn't. In OMAM, Jen writes of these moments. Life sometimes hurts. It is also hysterical at times. What I found in these pages was not a m...

    Somewhere along the way I got the idea that Jen Hatmaker was mainstream and orthodox. I had seen her books around and had the idea that she wasn?t really anything radical...just another nice women?s teacher. But then last year I heard of her response to the Nashville Statement and ...

    Jen Hatmaker does it AGAIN! If you read and loved her previous book, For The Love, then this book is for you! I laughed so hard at the hilarious parts...and then cried real tears as she reached down into the tender places that needed her words. Jen tells the truth and then wraps it...

    Of Mess and Moxie has given me permission. Permission to be exactly who I am, permission to create, permission to fight for what I believe in and to build the kind of rich, wild, moxie-filled community that exudes love, grace and acceptance. "This wild and glorious life" is so full of ...

    With wit and whimsy, tenderness and tenacity, Jen Hatmaker once again balances the sacred and the sarcastic, giving her readers permission to admit their messes and live with unashamed moxie. Of Mess and Moxie was cathartic and refreshing, leaving me with a sense of having spent an aft...

    If you're a Christian woman and you haven't heard of Jen Hatmaker, you might be living under a rock. Her previous books (7, Interrupted, For The Love, etc) have been bestsellers, accompanied by rave reviews and scores of Christian women following Jen on social media and attending confe...

    I'm giving this book a 3.5 star rating but rounding it up to 4 stars because I liked it more than my average 3 star but it isn't quite what I would consider a 4 (picky, I know). This was a funny, relatable, and meaningful read. I think it would suit a variety of age ranges and in di...

    Of Mess and Moxie is Jen Hatmaker's love letter to the girls - the young ones, the old ones, the ones in the middle - who are walking this journey of life in all it's joy and sadness. The girls who are nailing it and the girls who feel like they just don't measure up. The girls who hav...

    This book was fantastic! It's full of funny stories, great recipes and lots of tidbits about how to navigate this messy thing called life. Jen Hatmaker is one of my favorite authors because her outlook on life makes you feel like you've known her for years. She seems like the kind of f...

    Oh my word, people... you've got to read this book. I just laughed and cried and related through every page. Jen Hatmaker is every woman. Somehow she nails exactly what you're thinking. It's basically a memoir about so many things... girlfriends, marriage, parenting, church, cooking, N...

    Jen hit it out of the park with this one. I've never read a Jen book that didn't speak to me, but Of Mess and Moxie took it past that. It's easy to get lost in the mess of life--the mundane, boring, seemingly average mess. OMAM is for ALL the girls--the ones in EVERY stage of life, whe...

    As a busy wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, daycare provider, preteen girls coach, mentor and friend, my life has seen it's fair share of mess. Reading Jen Hatmaker's newest book, "Of Mess and Moxie," has been a breath of fresh air to my soul. It's like Jen looked deep into me and ...

    This book came into my life during a year of healing from some deep wounds. My typical MO is to push the heartache aside and carry on but I just couldn't. In OMAM, Jen writes of these moments. Life sometimes hurts. It is also hysterical at times. What I found in these pages was not a m...

    I just love her books. It also makes me want to try harder to have a serious group of friends. ...

    Jen hit it out of the park with this one. I've never read a Jen book that didn't speak to me, but Of Mess and Moxie took it past that. It's easy to get lost in the mess of life--the mundane, boring, seemingly average mess. OMAM is for ALL the girls--the ones in EVERY stage of life, whe...

    Jen Hatmaker does it AGAIN! If you read and loved her previous book, For The Love, then this book is for you! I laughed so hard at the hilarious parts...and then cried real tears as she reached down into the tender places that needed her words. Jen tells the truth and then wraps it...

    Of Mess and Moxie has given me permission. Permission to be exactly who I am, permission to create, permission to fight for what I believe in and to build the kind of rich, wild, moxie-filled community that exudes love, grace and acceptance. "This wild and glorious life" is so full of ...

    If you're a Christian woman and you haven't heard of Jen Hatmaker, you might be living under a rock. Her previous books (7, Interrupted, For The Love, etc) have been bestsellers, accompanied by rave reviews and scores of Christian women following Jen on social media and attending confe...

    I'm giving this book a 3.5 star rating but rounding it up to 4 stars because I liked it more than my average 3 star but it isn't quite what I would consider a 4 (picky, I know). This was a funny, relatable, and meaningful read. I think it would suit a variety of age ranges and in di...

    Of Mess and Moxie is Jen Hatmaker's love letter to the girls - the young ones, the old ones, the ones in the middle - who are walking this journey of life in all it's joy and sadness. The girls who are nailing it and the girls who feel like they just don't measure up. The girls who hav...

    This book was fantastic! It's full of funny stories, great recipes and lots of tidbits about how to navigate this messy thing called life. Jen Hatmaker is one of my favorite authors because her outlook on life makes you feel like you've known her for years. She seems like the kind of f...

    Of all the Jen Hatmaker books I've read, this one feels like the best one. Maybe it's just the best one for this season of life. (But it's not just for women in one season of life.) Reading this book is like receiving a letter from a dear friend. I couldn't wait to open it and see what...

    I wanted to love this book. I follow her on social media, and she's warm and funny and sometimes makes me cry. She's one of those social media personalities that you feel like you know. I was excited to read this book; I was expecting it to be both funny and meaningful, and it was kind...

    I've heard it said that the most powerful words are, "Me, too!" Jen Hatmaker, Queen of Authenticity, brilliantly draws her readers into her story with shouts of, "Me, too!" It's reassuring and comforting to know that we're normal in our wondering, searching, and whole hearted quest...

    Okay - someone gets to go first right? Y'all Jen Hatmaker makes me laugh and cry and sometimes these things happen simultaneously! I was blessed enough to receive an ARC of this new book. I cannot count the number of times that I felt like Jen must have been spying on my life. She is s...

    When I read 'Of Mess and Moxie' I highlighted phrases, dog-eared pages, underlined passages, attached post-it notes, and wrote exclamation marks in the margins because so much of it spoke to me. When I started writing this endorsement, so much of the book had been marked up that I had ...

    I can?t remember the last time a book made me laugh smack dab from my toes or sob from somewhere deep in my heart, or shout a ?hallelujah? or two! Ms. Hatmaker?s latest book, Of Mess and Moxie, was an intriguing surprise for me. When I received an Advance Reader?s Copy from t...

    As a fan of Jen Hatmaker's work, I was thrilled to receive an advanced copy of Of Mess and Moxie. This book is the perfect follow-up to For The Love. Jen invites the reader to embrace who they are while at the same time gently encouraging them to be the person that God has made them to...

    My young son was very upset with me for writing so much in this book, since WE DO NOT WRITE IN BOOKS. But I couldn't help myself. Jen's words just call out to be underlined, circled, arrowed, asterisked, and amened all over the place. You're going to need a fancy new pen or five. Th...

    I am madly in love with Jen Hatmaker so this review is biased. Of Mess and Moxie was a fun, easy, encouraging, and inspiring read that I read in one day. Honesty and humor are the key ingredients in a Jen Hatmaker book and those are my two favorite qualities in any person's writing. Al...

    While I liked Jen's last book, I just LOVED Of Mess and Moxie. I received an advance copy to review, and I nearly cried in the first chapter because of a few sentences that so perfectly captured my own feelings. I love her words about creating community, her in-the-trenches chapter abo...

    Okay - someone gets to go first right? Y'all Jen Hatmaker makes me laugh and cry and sometimes these things happen simultaneously! I was blessed enough to receive an ARC of this new book. I cannot count the number of times that I felt like Jen must have been spying on my life. She is s...

    When I read 'Of Mess and Moxie' I highlighted phrases, dog-eared pages, underlined passages, attached post-it notes, and wrote exclamation marks in the margins because so much of it spoke to me. When I started writing this endorsement, so much of the book had been marked up that I had ...

    I can?t remember the last time a book made me laugh smack dab from my toes or sob from somewhere deep in my heart, or shout a ?hallelujah? or two! Ms. Hatmaker?s latest book, Of Mess and Moxie, was an intriguing surprise for me. When I received an Advance Reader?s Copy from t...

    Somewhere along the way I got the idea that Jen Hatmaker was mainstream and orthodox. I had seen her books around and had the idea that she wasn?t really anything radical...just another nice women?s teacher. But then last year I heard of her response to the Nashville Statement and ...

    Jen Hatmaker does it AGAIN! If you read and loved her previous book, For The Love, then this book is for you! I laughed so hard at the hilarious parts...and then cried real tears as she reached down into the tender places that needed her words. Jen tells the truth and then wraps it...

    Of Mess and Moxie has given me permission. Permission to be exactly who I am, permission to create, permission to fight for what I believe in and to build the kind of rich, wild, moxie-filled community that exudes love, grace and acceptance. "This wild and glorious life" is so full of ...

    With wit and whimsy, tenderness and tenacity, Jen Hatmaker once again balances the sacred and the sarcastic, giving her readers permission to admit their messes and live with unashamed moxie. Of Mess and Moxie was cathartic and refreshing, leaving me with a sense of having spent an aft...

    If you're a Christian woman and you haven't heard of Jen Hatmaker, you might be living under a rock. Her previous books (7, Interrupted, For The Love, etc) have been bestsellers, accompanied by rave reviews and scores of Christian women following Jen on social media and attending confe...

    I'm giving this book a 3.5 star rating but rounding it up to 4 stars because I liked it more than my average 3 star but it isn't quite what I would consider a 4 (picky, I know). This was a funny, relatable, and meaningful read. I think it would suit a variety of age ranges and in di...

    Of Mess and Moxie is Jen Hatmaker's love letter to the girls - the young ones, the old ones, the ones in the middle - who are walking this journey of life in all it's joy and sadness. The girls who are nailing it and the girls who feel like they just don't measure up. The girls who hav...

    Oh my word, people... you've got to read this book. I just laughed and cried and related through every page. Jen Hatmaker is every woman. Somehow she nails exactly what you're thinking. It's basically a memoir about so many things... girlfriends, marriage, parenting, church, cooking, N...

    Of all the Jen Hatmaker books I've read, this one feels like the best one. Maybe it's just the best one for this season of life. (But it's not just for women in one season of life.) Reading this book is like receiving a letter from a dear friend. I couldn't wait to open it and see what...

    Another fantastic addition to the Jen Hatmaker collection of books. As we've come to expect from her books, Of Mess and Moxie is filled with 'How To' chapters, delicious recipes and now wisdom for all the various stages of our lives. Hatmaker's sarcasm fills the pages as she takes us f...

    As a busy wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, daycare provider, preteen girls coach, mentor and friend, my life has seen it's fair share of mess. Reading Jen Hatmaker's newest book, "Of Mess and Moxie," has been a breath of fresh air to my soul. It's like Jen looked deep into me and ...

    This book came into my life during a year of healing from some deep wounds. My typical MO is to push the heartache aside and carry on but I just couldn't. In OMAM, Jen writes of these moments. Life sometimes hurts. It is also hysterical at times. What I found in these pages was not a m...

    I just love her books. It also makes me want to try harder to have a serious group of friends. ...

    Jen hit it out of the park with this one. I've never read a Jen book that didn't speak to me, but Of Mess and Moxie took it past that. It's easy to get lost in the mess of life--the mundane, boring, seemingly average mess. OMAM is for ALL the girls--the ones in EVERY stage of life, whe...

    As a fan of Jen Hatmaker's work, I was thrilled to receive an advanced copy of Of Mess and Moxie. This book is the perfect follow-up to For The Love. Jen invites the reader to embrace who they are while at the same time gently encouraging them to be the person that God has made them to...

    My young son was very upset with me for writing so much in this book, since WE DO NOT WRITE IN BOOKS. But I couldn't help myself. Jen's words just call out to be underlined, circled, arrowed, asterisked, and amened all over the place. You're going to need a fancy new pen or five. Th...

    I am madly in love with Jen Hatmaker so this review is biased. Of Mess and Moxie was a fun, easy, encouraging, and inspiring read that I read in one day. Honesty and humor are the key ingredients in a Jen Hatmaker book and those are my two favorite qualities in any person's writing. Al...

    I wanted to love this book. I follow her on social media, and she's warm and funny and sometimes makes me cry. She's one of those social media personalities that you feel like you know. I was excited to read this book; I was expecting it to be both funny and meaningful, and it was kind...

    I've heard it said that the most powerful words are, "Me, too!" Jen Hatmaker, Queen of Authenticity, brilliantly draws her readers into her story with shouts of, "Me, too!" It's reassuring and comforting to know that we're normal in our wondering, searching, and whole hearted quest...

    Okay - someone gets to go first right? Y'all Jen Hatmaker makes me laugh and cry and sometimes these things happen simultaneously! I was blessed enough to receive an ARC of this new book. I cannot count the number of times that I felt like Jen must have been spying on my life. She is s...

    When I read 'Of Mess and Moxie' I highlighted phrases, dog-eared pages, underlined passages, attached post-it notes, and wrote exclamation marks in the margins because so much of it spoke to me. When I started writing this endorsement, so much of the book had been marked up that I had ...

    I can?t remember the last time a book made me laugh smack dab from my toes or sob from somewhere deep in my heart, or shout a ?hallelujah? or two! Ms. Hatmaker?s latest book, Of Mess and Moxie, was an intriguing surprise for me. When I received an Advance Reader?s Copy from t...

    I was blessed to receive an advanced readers copy in exchange for my honest review and let me just say that Jen has done it again!!! Reading Of Mess and Moxie is like sitting down with your bestie and having a conversation. She speaks to our hearts and our minds so openly and without r...

    Another fantastic addition to the Jen Hatmaker collection of books. As we've come to expect from her books, Of Mess and Moxie is filled with 'How To' chapters, delicious recipes and now wisdom for all the various stages of our lives. Hatmaker's sarcasm fills the pages as she takes us f...

    Somewhere along the way I got the idea that Jen Hatmaker was mainstream and orthodox. I had seen her books around and had the idea that she wasn?t really anything radical...just another nice women?s teacher. But then last year I heard of her response to the Nashville Statement and ...

    Jen Hatmaker does it AGAIN! If you read and loved her previous book, For The Love, then this book is for you! I laughed so hard at the hilarious parts...and then cried real tears as she reached down into the tender places that needed her words. Jen tells the truth and then wraps it...

    Of Mess and Moxie has given me permission. Permission to be exactly who I am, permission to create, permission to fight for what I believe in and to build the kind of rich, wild, moxie-filled community that exudes love, grace and acceptance. "This wild and glorious life" is so full of ...

    With wit and whimsy, tenderness and tenacity, Jen Hatmaker once again balances the sacred and the sarcastic, giving her readers permission to admit their messes and live with unashamed moxie. Of Mess and Moxie was cathartic and refreshing, leaving me with a sense of having spent an aft...

    If you're a Christian woman and you haven't heard of Jen Hatmaker, you might be living under a rock. Her previous books (7, Interrupted, For The Love, etc) have been bestsellers, accompanied by rave reviews and scores of Christian women following Jen on social media and attending confe...

    I'm giving this book a 3.5 star rating but rounding it up to 4 stars because I liked it more than my average 3 star but it isn't quite what I would consider a 4 (picky, I know). This was a funny, relatable, and meaningful read. I think it would suit a variety of age ranges and in di...

    Of Mess and Moxie is Jen Hatmaker's love letter to the girls - the young ones, the old ones, the ones in the middle - who are walking this journey of life in all it's joy and sadness. The girls who are nailing it and the girls who feel like they just don't measure up. The girls who hav...
