Jen Hatmaker For The Love
Jen Hatmaker is convinced life can be lovely and fun and courageous and kind.She reveals with humor and style how Jesus embarrassing grace is the key to dealing with life’s biggest challenge: people. The majority of our joys, struggles, thrills, and heartbreaks relate to people, beginning with ourselves and then the people we came from, married, birthed, live by, go to church with, don t like, don t understand, fear, compare ourselves to, and judge. Jen knows how the squeeze of this life can make us competitive and judgmental, how we can lose love for others and then for ourselves.
She reveals how to: Break free of guilt and shame by dismantling the unattainable Pinterest life. Learn to engage our culture s controversial issues with a grace-firstapproach. Be liberated to love and release the burden of always being right. Identify the tools you already have to develop real-life, all-in, know-my-junk-but-love-me-anyway friendships. Escape our impossible standards for parenting and marriage by accepting thestandard of mostly good. Laugh your butt off.
In this raucous ride to freedom for modern women, Jen Hatmaker baresthe refreshing wisdom, wry humor, no-nonsense faith, liberating insight, and fearless honesty that have made her beloved by women worldwide.”

Interrupted Jen Hatmaker
Interrupted follows the author’s messy journey through life and church and into living on mission. Snatching Jen from the grip of her consumer life, God began asking her questions like, “What is really the point of My Church? What have I really asked of you?” She was far too busy doing church than being church, even as a pastor’s wife, an author of five Christian books, and a committed believer for 26 years. She discovered she had missed the point.
Christ brought Jen and her family to a place of living on mission by asking them tough questions, leading them through Scripture, and walking together with them on the path. Interrupted invites readers to take a similar journey.

Jen Hatmaker Quotes
- You’d be surprised how powerful kindness actually is. I am not being dramatic: you can save hearts and lives with grace. Do
- Instead of waiting for community, provide it, and you’ll end up with it anyway.
- Be patient. Do the best with what you know. When you know more, adjust the trajectory.
- One of the best parts of being human is other humans. It’s true, because life is hard; but people get to show up for one another, as God told us to, and we remember we are loved and seen and God is here and we are not alone. We can’t deliver folks from their pits, but we can sure get in there with them until God does.
- We can have our junk together in a thousand areas, but if we don’t have love, we are totally bankrupt.
- …when the exhaustive exegesis of God’s Word doesn’t create people transformed into the image of Jesus, we have missed the forest for the trees.
- People may hate us because of Jesus, but they should never hate Jesus because of us. The way we treat others should lead them to only one conclusion: “If this is how Jesus loves, then I’m in.
- God does not change, but He uses change—to change us. He sends us on journeys that bring us to the end of ourselves. We often feel out of control, yet if we embrace His leading, we may find ourselves on the ride of our lives.
- Our children are humans and deserve to be treated respectfully. Discipline doesn’t include raging, screaming, abusing, neglecting, humiliating, or shaming our kids. God never treats us like that. That sort of discipline never “produces a harvest of righteousness and peace.
- We need to quit trying to be awesome and instead be wise.

Delighted to have been a recent guest on the Surviving Sarah Podcast with @sarahwbragg. We talked all about the beginning steps of dissecting our own faith, having an open, non-threatening dialogue with people with perspectives different from our own, and allowing our positions to change without being so ridiculously precious about it. WE WENT THERE and you know your friend Jen is not one to tippy-toe around her feelings. . Some key take-aways from our discussion: . 1) People who think or believe differently are not the enemy. . 2) Exposing injustice is not the same thing as creating injustice. . 3) Exposure is the best teacher. . 4) God is not threatened by our questions and we shouldn't be either. . . .
