“Of Mess and Moxie”


The book for review is “Of Mess and Moxie: Wrangling Delight Out of This Wild and Glorious Life” by Jen Hatmaker. This book falls in the genre of non fiction, religion, Christian life and Women’s Issues.

Meet our main character Jen Hatmaker, a mother of five and also pastor’s wife. This book dives into her life, her family’s life and how it revolves with her beliefs as a Christian while living in Austin, Texas.

Each chapter dives into topics that are fun for laughs and giggles, especially since this is not our family. Jen ranges from talking about not being stuck into what image you were as a child how it is okay to re-brand yourself , reinvent yourself from who people knew you then. You will learn her joys and downs of motherhood and what it means to be a parent.

Her antidotes of what happens in her life will make you laugh as you read about this child doing this or her doing that. The chapters are full of her theory on how to approach a grocery store shopping, how not to get upset when your child is peeing on an expensive towel at Bath and Beyond, how in everything there is a sprinkle of spirituality that we can learn and grown from.

I told myself I would not read another spiritual book. I have been on a tear of reading these books to read and review. When I started this book, and I was not aware of what kind of book it was exactly, I felt a little down to, “Here I go again,” mood. But as always there will be a chapter I come across that I was meant to read, that was supposed to show me, help me understand and explain things to me in my own life. And soon another chapter did that and another and another. I did enjoy this book. Her quick wit and humor is one I can appreciate and enjoy since that is how my own family is. A good pick up which is light and airy but not only fluff.

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
