My heart beats wildly for the words of Jen Hatmaker. And also for all things Christmas. So a Jen Hatmaker book about the holiday season? Yeah, that’s right up this girl’s alley. In the vein of the author’s 2017 book 7: An Experimental Mutiny Against Excess, this new work encourages the reader to practice generosity and restraint during a generally consumption-driven season of the year. I like to pat myself on the back often and declare that I am mindful about my purchases and I don’t go crazy overspending on Christmas. But, that’s a big load of crap. So this book was both inspiring and convicting. I literally got rid of 19 (19!) pairs of pants (among many other things) while I was listening to the audiobook. Give it a listen or read. In this time leading up to the holiday season, this delightful book helps us get our hearts centered on what Christmas is all about.
