At first I was confused, this book is faith based, but where was the gospel, where was the Word?? But I kept on, Jen writes as if she‘s in your living room, just chatting. She‘s witty and fun. And then it hits you, the inspiring, hope filled words, the authentic Word. It‘s intense, it‘s real and it‘s sincere. It filled me with strength to forge on with my faith. If you don‘t read any of the book, read this chapter, On Woman, it‘s all you‘ll need

I'm about 10 years younger than Hatmaker's target audience, and I'm unmarried and have no "bigs" or "littles". I actually really enjoyed her essays on the Church, missions, church leaders, etc. and was inspired by some of her writing about relationships. Her humor fell pretty flat for me and I didn't want the recipes included in this book. I'm not part of her core fan base, but I could see For the Love being great for others more like the author.

I do most of my ereading and listening these days on my phone. I use overdrive and one click digital for library books and audiobooks, kindle rarely for sales, nook to add to my digital library, and bluefire for my netgalley reads. 😊📚😊

annahenke @Dolly Anyone can sign up for netgalley, but you are subject to publisher approval to actually be able to read and review individual titles. You either have to have a blog or review regularly on retailer sites or Goodreads to get approved for bigger titles. However, it's worth a try if it's something you're interested in doing! You never know! 3y

Had to bite my tongue not to say YESS out loud on the train. "When "friend time" consistently feels like a beatdown it's time to reevaluate. This isn't complicated: a friend should behave like a friend, not a critic, a cynic, gossip, mother, doubter or hater."

LindsayReads Definitely feeling this. 3y
snacksinthestacks @LindsayReads definately check it out! She has great advice 3y

Checking in again with the #readathon which is going great but also weird. Almost done with this 3rd book. I wasn't planning to read it. But my kindle froze and I just needed to feel like there are still Christians around who believe in Grace. Could not have chosen better.

Libby1 There are still Christians around who believe in grace! ❤️ 3y
Sydsavvy @Libby1 it's nice to know! I've had this forever and loved the first chapter. I guess the rest was just saved for a time such as this. (edited) 3y
