For the Love: by Jen Hatmaker | Summary & Analysis Preview: For the Love: Fighting for Grace in a World of Impossible Standards by Jen Hatmaker is a self-help book about women’s pursuit of perfection. In the modern world, most women have the opportunity to do and be whatever they set their minds to. If a woman wants to be a chief executive officer (CEO), she can be a CEO. If a woman wants to be a stay-at-home mom, she can be a stay-at-home mom. However, this land of opportunity has also given rise to the idea that women can have it all, be it all, and be successful in every aspect of their lives, all by themselves. Unfortunately, this is not possible, but that has not stopped women from running themselves ragged in the pursuit of perfection. In order to live a fulfilled and happy life, women need to come to terms with the fact that society’s standards are impossible to meet, and then figure out what they truly want to do, while finding ways to delegate the rest… PLEASE NOTE: This is a summary and analysis of the book and NOT the original book.

What happens when you ask God, “What do you want me to do today?” This is not a success story. And it’s not one of those stories that has a beginning, a middle, and then a perfectly tidy hind end either. It’s really just a beginning. For thirty days Kendra Broekhuis prayed “to maintain the joy of being wife and mommy amid the daily grind. To see the world through God’s eyes. To live intentionally. To build relationships and share Christ’s love with our neighbors. To learn what it really means to give. To collide ‘motherhood’ with ‘mission.’” This became her motto, her credo, her personal mission statement. Some days it led to actions the Lord gently nudged her to take. Other days it led to reflections the Lord gently whispered into her heart. Every day it led to a single word, one underlying theme that ties all thirty days – all thirty chapters – and their wide variety of topics together: giving. These thirty days found Kendra and her husband and daughter in a strange time of transition. They had just moved back to the United States after teaching for three years in the beautiful country of Guatemala. They were in a new city, working a new job, living in a new apartment building, in search of a new church. And they wanted to put it all together: all of their experiences, all of the things they had just seen and learned and read and discussed. It wasn’t a clean slate but rather a chance to live intentionally. When Kendra and her husband sought advice about the transition from fellow missionary friends, the advice was, “Get to know your neighbors.” It might sound like strange advice, but it made sense. Jesus tells us to “Love God and love your neighbor.” Many times the word neighbor is meant to be vague, but it shouldn’t always be. Part of being mission-minded, no matter where you live or work, is being willing to love the people closest to you, people we often overlook. Kendra’s neighbors—as in the people who live in the other eleven apartments in her building—are whom she often found the Lord’s generosity overflowing to and from during these thirty days.

Interrupted: An Adventure in Relearning the Essentials of Faith - Member Book provides the learner a study resource for this young adult Bible study. The American Dream and Christianity Aren't the Same Thing! God is in the business of interrupting what we think our lives are about. Jen Hatmaker argues that we have missed the point, confusing Christianity with the American Dream and manipulating Scripture to say what we want it to say. Interrupted is about freedom from consumer-driven Christianity and getting back to the true faith, real life, real justice, real religion.

New York Times bestselling author Jen Hatmaker, with cheeky candor and fearlessness, guides readers to a deep dive into how they are wired and provides them with the tools to walk in that identity with freedom and guts. Stuck in people-pleasing or fear, many women hide and pretend, then end up sidelined in their own lives. But what they want is to be brave, to claim every gift, dream, quirk, and emotion inside, to stop performing and start living. Beloved New York Times bestselling author Jen Hatmaker understands the struggle to find firm footing in a culture that operates from stereotypes and often unreachable expectations. In this new book, she offers women encouragement, challenge, and humor as she helps them identify everything that makes them tick and gain the confidence to live it all out. She leads them through five self-reflective categories--who I am, what I need, what I want, what I believe, and how I connect--and helps them: identify the exact ways they pretend, and learn instead how to be genuine at all times, in all ways, in all contexts; be empowered to say yes and no without guilt; learn to voice both their spiritual questions and convictions; and opt out of drama and into healthy adult relationships. With wry humor, earnest passion, and been-there insight, Jen calls women to the life-giving freedom of leaning into the identity, convictions, and community they've been given.

Throughout time, women have been identified in many conflicting ways. Sometimes goddesses, slaves, or seductresses, but always misunderstood—by themselves and others. Jen Hatmaker uses examples from the five women named in Jesus’ lineage to help identify who a daughter of Christ is. From the woman who acted like a prostitute to the woman who was one, the widow to the adulteress to the mother, each has something to pass on.

Inspired by and adapted from her breakout book 7: An Experimental Mutiny Against Excess, 7 Days of Christmas takes Hatmaker's social experiments in seven key areas--food, clothes, spending, media, possessions, waste, stress--and turns them into thoughtful and practical generosity that captures the true spirit of Christmas. 7 Days of Christmas covers 7 days during the Christmas season to practice both generosity and restraint in the areas related to the book. It will contain snippets of Jen's journey throughout to offer insight, humor, ideas, facts, and encouragement for the reader to consider while embracing this change, if only for 24 hours. We'll see the reasons why each area is important to Jen and also applicable to most American families. We'll also see how that particular area of excess impacts the family unit, the community, and the world at large--complete with ideas on how to reduce thoughtless consumption and consider other practices that lead to less stuff but more joy.

Despite being part of one of the most mobile societies in history, it's easy for us to feel stuck where we are. Whether because of a recent move or because we're still in the exact same place we've been for years, many of us just aren't where we thought we'd be or doing what we thought we'd be doing. Sometimes we may wonder if God knows what he's doing. How can this be part of his plan? With enthusiasm and contagious joy, Shauna Pilgreen assures readers that, yes, God does have a plan and a purpose for them--right where they are. In fact, he sent them there. She invites readers to "live sent," showing them how to see their surroundings with fresh eyes and renewed energy. Weaving her own remarkable story with biblical habits readers can incorporate into their daily routines, Pilgreen equips us to reach out into our communities with God's love, knowing that our efforts are never in vain.

A great career, a wonderful marriage, a beautiful home—the classic makings of the American dream and a blessed life. Jenny Day Jones has all of these things but, after a spiritual crisis, realized that material blessings were preventing her from saying “yes” to God’s plan for her life. With humor and rare authenticity, Too Blessed to Say Yes uses the Beatitudes and the story of the rich young ruler to warn against the pursuit of personal success and reveals how to never be too blessed to say “yes” to God. “Jenny Day Jones tackles issues like fear and failure, performance Christianity, radical generosity and risk-taking. She challenges us to continually and deliberately empty ourselves and say ‘yes’ to God.” —Rob Morris, Love 146 “It seems blessings have become the ultimate pursuit, instead of pursuing the One who blesses. In a beautiful cascade of chapters, Jones shares how we can replace our inner need for comfort and material accolades with the freedom of maturity, as we redefine our pursuit of happiness.”—Gari Meacham, Author
