Jen Hatmaker's humor and personality shine through in her writing. She's easy-going and forthright as she shares her daily life struggles and very human reactions to the normal things in life making her messiness very relatable. This book, 7, is the first full-length one of hers that I've read. I laughed out loud so many times. Even in the humor, several places hit me as places of excess where my focus on Jesus has strayed. Not in a bad way either. Instead, her crazy experiment encourages me to examine myself. Excellent book!!
This book is incredible! Jen Hatmaker can go from deeply spiritual, make you want to cry out to Jesus, to hilariously sarcastic in about 2 seconds. She is so real that you can totally relate to her. Reading this book has inspired to live my life more like Christ, and to really look at my life and ask myself some tough questions. I will never be the same. Seriously life-changing. I have already shared this book with at least 6 people- I want everyone to read it.
I love "page turners" and this book definitely did not disappoint. I have already passed it on to a friend...to keep the message of "excess" going. I didn't know how Jen Hatmaker's book would relate to me, a Baby Boomer...but the message is loud and clear,
and loved the mental challenge of limiting my life to connect with my fellow planet dwellers in a different way. I laughed. I was challenged. I learned more about God...and myself. And was given a renewed appreciation of the girlfriends God has gifted me! I want to do the Bible Study with them soon.
This book is flat-out fabulous. Jen hits on amazing biblical truths and is convincing without guilt, revealing where our true priorities lie. With humor, sharp wit, and God's grace woven throughout, it had me bawling and rolling laughing, moments apart. This book has messed with me in the most wonderful way, instantly rising to the top of my list of most-beloved books. It is a must read.
