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.

My Review:

Jen Hatmaker has been a favorite author and speaker of mine for several years, and I absolutely adored reading this collection of devotionals. It was so encouraging to read that I am not the only mother out there that often times feels overwhelmed with the list of things I have to do in my home, work and as a wife and mom. This book would make an ideal baby shower gift or new baby gift. Jen Hatmaker is raw and vulnerable as she shares life experiences that she has had. I felt like I was right in my living room having a cup of coffee with her. I love that it is not a dated devotional so you can go through it at your own leisure. Each one is short and gives a practical idea at the end of each chapter too. So fun to read and inspirational all in one! 

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
