by Jen Hatmaker

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.

I bought this book because a friend recommended it. I have a pretty sarcastic sense of humor and didn't really know what to expect (even after having read the reviews), especially having recently come off a dry spell with my faith. I was pleasantly surprised when I found the book to not only be funny, but inspiring and down to earth. Jen has the ability to blend God's truth with a type of honesty not always seen within the church or in Christian books. I felt like I could be honest with myself as I read the book and allow myself to be encouraged by the stories of the women God used. I was particularly moved by Chapter 7, which primarily talks about beauty/femininity, which something I personally struggle with. The freedom that I felt after reading that chapter was such a blessing.

Overall, an encouraging, insightful, down to earth, and humorous book. Definitely recommended to any woman in any season of their faith.
Jen is a gem! Her ability to meet you where you are at and speak to you on a true friend level, is her God given gift. I basically feel like I know her. She makes it simple to understand, backs it up with biblical proof, and empowers one, all at the same time. I thank God I have come across her writing every day. Don’t skip this book.
Two thumbs up! Jennifer Hatmaker takes the lives of five women of the Bible and make them relevant to today's women! I love her humor and condor with which she intertwines her own life stories to bring this book to life. Great women's resource!
A bit dated when I read it. Found that I didn't like the writer's style as much as the rest of my small group.
A must read for women. Many things she said had wandered through my mind and I laughed at them, but she says it with humor and truth that makes me realize I'm less crazy than I thought.
Excellent book! The only negative is that I couldn't put it down and I finished it before my vacation. Erg! I loved Jen's perspective and I really got a truer sense of how God used and uses women for His glory.
I recommend. I've learned and re-learned so much about what it means to be a woman!
I've been forever changed for the better because of Ms. Understood! I've been a Christ follower for 44 years and this book impacted me like no other. Blessed beyond measure and I cannot wait to share it with every woman I know!!
