This giveaway has ended.
Back in February I saw that one of my favorite authors, Jen Hatmaker, was organizing a special giving campaign for Valentine’s Day. It’s mission: putting a copy of her book, For the Love, into the hands of women who simply couldn’t afford to purchase it.
Jen is a mix of hilarity, conviction and faith. I have loved the ways her words have challenged me and her humor caused spontaneous bursts of laughing-til-my-sides-hurt. If you aren’t familiar with her, you should remedy that immediately. (I’m just saying).
With how tight finances have been between illness and moving, I was thrilled at the opportunity to receive a copy of her book!! The response to her Share the Love campaign was such a beautiful picture of generosity and community. Every single woman (2,250 of them) that signed up to receive a copy of For the Love was sponsored by someone within Jen’s community of followers!
The day before Valentine’s Day, my book arrived and planted the biggest smile on my face.
Her words over the last six weeks have been a beam of sunlight. The chapters of her and her readers’ version of Jimmy Fallon’s “thank you notes” had me rolling with laughter. And her essays on adoption, setting healthy boundaries with difficult people and embracing our gifts and talents tugged so deeply at my heartstrings.
I found pieces of myself in corners of each chapter and was ready to pull up to the dinner table for each recipe she shared. Her style of writing draws you in, making you feel like you’re curled up on the sofa having real time girl chat with her. About the harder parts of life and the things that matter. About finding meaning and purpose in whatever stage of life you are in.
This book is about shaking off the shackles of fear, feeling less than, and expectations of impossible standards. It’s about learning to look at life, ourselves and others through a lens of grace.
This is a book for the single one, the mamas, the woman holding back, and the fearless wanderer. No matter where you’re at in life, this book’s for you just as much as it has been for me. But don’t take just my word for it. You can read other reviews here!
I knew from the day I got this book that I wanted to be a part of the Share the Love movement in a small way through giving it away after I finished reading it.
So today I am doing just that!
One of you lucky readers will be the winner of my copy of For the Love!! You can enter with the intent of winning this book for yourself OR maybe you’ll be surprising a friend (hint: Mother’s Day is around the corner)!
