mox-ie [mok-see], noun informal: The ability to face difficulty with spirit and courage; sass, determination, pluck; “That girl’s got moxie.”
Jen Hatmaker believes backbone is the birthright of every woman. Women have been demonstrating resiliency and resolve since forever. They have incredibly strong shoulders to bear loss, hope, grief, and vision. But somehow women have gotten the message that pain and failure mean they must have messed up or done things wrong. As it turns out, every last woman faces confusion and loss, missteps and catastrophic malfunctions, no matter how much she is doing “right.” Struggle doesn’t mean she’s weak; it means she’s alive.
In Of Mess and Moxie, Jen Hatmaker, beloved author, Big Sister Emeritus, and Chief BFF, offers another round of hilarious tales, frank honesty, and hope for the woman who has forgotten her moxie. Whether discussing the grapple with change or the time she drove to the wrong city for a fourth-grade field trip, Jen parlays her own triumphs and tragedies into a sigh of relief for all normal, fierce women everywhere who, like her, sometimes hide in the car eating crackers but also want to live undaunted “in the moment” no matter what the moments hold.
