Book Review: For The Love by Jen Hatmaker



If you are looking for a new book that offers fun and laughter coupled with great advice to women on living life in today's world, along with a few great recipes, THIS IS THE BOOK. For The Love by Jen Hatmaker is one of the most enjoyable reads I have had in a long time. I dare say after a stressful past year or so, God knew I needed to lighten up with this book and gain a fresh perspective.

For The Love is subtitled Fighting For Grace in a World of Impossible Standards. This book is divide into four sections: loving yourself; loving your people in your household; loving your friends, neighbors and people in your life; and loving people in the church and on the mission field. She also includes some pretty funny "thank you notes" in each section. I did laugh and enjoyed this book. But I also learned something about loving myself (Boy, do I wish I had had this book in my 20s) and loving everyone else. Reading this book is like pulling up a chair on Jen's porch and chatting about the Christian life for moms in today's world. It is easy reading but it is not all fluff. There were some good points that I learned along the way. Some of her best advice comes from her years of experience in ministry. I think her perspective allows her to share advice from an angle the person in the pews doesn't see, but needs to hear.

I highly recommend this book. I can't say enough good things about it. Get a copy. (You'll be glad you did.)Take a break and enjoy!

I received this book from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review.
