New York Times bestselling author Jen Hatmaker believes that life can be fun, fulfilling, exciting, and beautiful. There's just one thing getting in the way: people.

So many of our joys, struggles, thrills, and heartbreaks are connected to others, starting with ourselves and the people we came from. As we grow, our community does too. Before we know it, our lives are full of people: people we became friends with, married, birthed, live by, go to church with, don't like, don't understand, fear, and endlessly compare ourselves to. It's easy to lose our love for ourselves and for others, but what if we let people off the hook instead? What if we let go of the need to criticize ourselves and our neighbors?

Jen shares the lessons she’s learned about how important it is to love people by teaching you how to:

  • Break free of guilt and shame by dismantling the unattainable Pinterest life
  • Learn to engage our culture's controversial issues with grace
  • Release the burden of always being right and be liberated to love
  • 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 the standard of "mostly good"
  • Laugh until you cry
  • In this raucous ride to freedom for modern women, Jen bares the refreshing wisdom, wry humor, no-nonsense faith, liberating insight, and fearless honesty that have made her beloved by women worldwide.

    Join Jen as she reminds you how amazing you are, how shockingly gracious God is, and how free we are to love others well and live the beautiful, wholehearted lives we were created to live.
