Out Of The Spin Cycle: A Book Review

About The Book:
Following Jesus shouldn't be just one more thing to do

Motherhood sometimes feels like a list of expectations. You may be busy or even overwhelmed. But you are also strong and brilliant. And here's a secret: a lot of those things on your list of expectations are things Jesus never expected you to do on your own.

In Out of the Spin Cycle, author and speaker Jen Hatmaker takes the words and deeds of Jesus, adds the humor of a young mom's life, and offers messages of grace and encouragement. Covering areas such as worry, marriage, priorities, money, and the comparison trap, this dynamic Bible teacher brings Jesus's message alive in short, to-the-point devotionals for your busy life. This is a devotional for you--the woman inside the mom--the Bible student, the learner, the world-changer.
So put aside that to-do list for a moment and discover the ways Jesus can lighten your mother load.

About The Author:

Jen Hatmaker is the author of seven books and Bible studies, including A Modern Girl's Guide to Bible Study. With a heart for the women of her generation, she speaks at retreats and conferences around the country. Jen and her husband, Brandon, reside in Texas with their three children, and lead the ministry work at Austin New Church.
My Review:

Out Of The Spin Cycle: Devotions To Lighten Your Mother Load is a phenomenal book. It is full of encouragement for moms of all stages. I am currently a mom of two young children and the length of each of the 40 devotions are perfect.
After reading the devotional and doing the Bible Reading I have spent about 15-20 minutes and this is perfect. I have been doing the devotions in this book sporadically (as time allows) during the last week or so, and have been very blessed by the author, Jen Hatmaker's writing talent. 
We, as moms, are not called to be perfect, but to teach our children to be the best they can be, to love Jesus, and to love one another as Christ loves us. Along the way, life is life and can be pretty crazy, but this book will encourage you when you need it and make you laugh when you need it to!

Out Of The Spin Cycle: Devotions To Lighten Your Mother Load will make a wonderful Baby Shower gift, or a gift for that mom of preschoolers that is at her wit's end! I highly recommend it and give it a huge thumbs up!
