I've recently been exposed to Jennifer Hatmaker. My lifegroup (the amazing girlfriends I do life with) decided to do a study that she has written. We have just started and I'm already LOVING it. Thought I'd share some details with you!
"American life can be excessive, to say the least. That’s what Jen Hatmaker had to admit after taking in hurricane victims who commented on the extravagance of her family’s upper middle class home. She once considered herself unmotivated by the lure of prosperity, but upon being called “rich” by an undeniably poor child, evidence to the contrary mounted, and a social experiment turned spiritual was born."
She has a book that goes along with this workbook too. It's a hilarious read.
Watch the Youtube trailer of the book at this link. Book Trailer
I also found out that HGTV is doing a show about them and their journey fixing up an old house. They are filming it at the moment. See her blog post about it here.
You can follow the HGTV process on her blog. It's such fun!
"7 is the true story of how Jen (along with her husband and her children to varying degrees) took seven months, identified seven areas of excess, and made seven simple choices to fight back against the modern-day diseases of greed, materialism, and overindulgence"
They have also adopted children from other countries that are now a part of their family! So cool and such an inspiration to so many!
Hope she inspires you as much as she has me. It's always so refreshing to see woman who are making a difference in the lives of others.
