Life is messy for each of us. But Jen Hatmaker reminds us that it's okay to admit that we're all in the same boat. Join New York Times bestselling author and honorary big sister Jen as she shares hilarious tales, shameless honesty, and unconditional hope for the woman who's forgotten her moxie.

We will endure discouragement, heartbreak, failure, and suffering. All of us. And more than once. But we are the very same folks who can experience triumph, perseverance, joy, and rebirth. More than once. And in more than one category. And in more than one season. And that? That's moxie.

Moxie reaches for laughter, for courage, for the deep and important truth that women are capable of weathering the storm. We are not victims, we are not weak, we are not a sad, defeated group of sob sisters. Yes, life is hard, but we are incredibly resilient.

Of Mess and Moxie shines a light on Jen's own triumphs and tragedies into a sigh of relief for all normal, fierce women everywhere. Whether it's the time she drove to the wrong city for a fourth-grade field trip or the way she learned to truly forgive, she offers a reminder to those of us who sometimes hide in the car eating crackers that we do actually have the moxie to get back up and face our messes head-on. After all, this race is not a contest--there's enough abundance to go around.

This book will give you the encouragement you need to remember that:

- Your mess is normal
- You are not in competition with your peers--your seat at the table is secure
- You have incredible gifts to offer

Come alongside Jen as she teaches us that we can all choose to live undaunted and in the moment, no matter what the moments hold, and we really can lead vibrant, courageous, grace-filled lives.

The book was ok. I think it was kind of deceiving in the beginning when she says it’s for all women, but after listening, it’s not really for my divorced female friend who can’t have children. Jen has a little too much energy, like she’s trying too hard. I couldn’t stay engrossed in the book because the narrating got on my nerves, so I’d listen to one chapter and then have to take a break. But maybe because I’m an introvert.

This is my first time reading a book by Jen Hatmaker. I LOVED this book! She makes you laugh, cry, and she makes you think. She makes you examine your beliefs by giving you new ways to look at the Whys and What ifs. I highly recommend this audiobook! If you’re an ultra-conservative Christian, you may be offended by some of her language and views on Jesus and God... Read it anyway!

Jen is just the best! So real, and funny, and genuine. I cried, I laughed, but mostly I learned so many wonderful things about life, love, and Jesus. Well done, Jen. Best book yet.
