I got this book on a recommendation and have since bought it for several other people. Jen Hatmaker is a great writer, and I found myself laughing out loud several times, and sharing her deep thoughts with anyone around who would listen. A truly life-changing read
From the title to the txt, this book displays the new "American Dream." It's also a manifest against clutter. I'm still taken by Hatmaker message.
From the title to text, this book is an intriguing picture of the new "American Dream."
Loved this book.
Very eye opening yet charming.
Lots of giggles as well
I loved this book! I read it straight through on a long plane flight -- I could not put it down. Jen's writing style is engaging, funny and warm. Her enthusiasm is contagious and I found myself marking so many pages to turn back to later for inspiration and wisdom. I have been recommending this book to all my friends and family. This book rejuvenated my spirit and zest to make a difference in our world and my community!
Love love love this book! Jen is funny, witty, and easy to read. She (and sometimes her family) tackled 7 areas of life for radical change in order to simplify and stop their out-of-control consumerism. They were profoundly affected as self-denial led to greater awareness of the needs of others and a determination to use their resources more wisely. It is a very enjoyable read that does not lay on any guilt trips, but does stir up the desire to live more in tune with God's plan for us -- in relation with others and in our use of what we've been given.
