Another great read: For The Love by Jen Hatmaker 

For The Love was such a fun read! Especially when you know that a bunch of your girlfriends are all reading it at the same time. No matter your phase of life, Jen’s honesty and wit connect all of the dots for a picture of actionable ways to live out the love of Jesus, particularly as a woman in America where our good fortune frequently blinds us and the snares of things like social media often turn us into the worst versions of ourselves. As Jen eloquently states “We are not good gods over one another; we are better humans beside each other.” Even though it’s geared toward women, I think men would really enjoy this book as well. In a time where it seems that everything seeks to divide us, it is refreshing to see voices like Jen’s ring out and encourage us to find unity in our messiness. Jen quotes John 1:4-5 which says of Jesus “in him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” I highly recommend this book, and suggest you send a copy to your best girlfriend too! After all, there are some amazing looking recipes in here too!
