Mary Katherine Backstrom shares heartbreaking and hilarious stories of how God uses each “mess” in our lives to bring us closer to Him. She shows us that it’s okay to celebrate exactly where we are right now—holy, hot mess and all. A lot of people struggle with the concept of being holy. But the fact is, even the hottest of messes are being shaped—right now—into Jesus’ likeness. In this book, Mary Katherine shares the sometimes-hidden evidence of God’s work in her life and shows you that it’s okay to embrace the hot messes. Mary Katherine will share both hilarious and vulnerable stories about faith, friendships, motherhood, marriage, and depression. She will cover the topics that plague our hearts every day with raw, honest truth and a side of laughter. Mary Katherine invites you into her story as a friend, encouraging you to embrace the hot messes in your life. Because we are all a work in progress, and as long as we are alive, we are under construction—and construction sites tend to be messy.

Holy Hot Mess by Mary Katherine Backstrom Reviews:

Holy Hot Mess couldn’t have come at a more perfect time in my life. I often forget that all of the things happening in my life are for a reason, even if it doesn’t make sense at the time. Mary Katherine uses her humor to share hilarious and at times heartbreaking personal stories that remind each of us that there is a beautiful plan unfolding in our lives, and it’s bigger and more beautiful than we can fathom. Every heartbreak and obstacle has a purpose, and after reading her book I will surely be switching my perspective and reminding myself that nothing is in my control. Thank you for reminding me that all of us are a hot mess at different points in our lives, some just hide it better than others.
—Tiffany Jenkins, Founder of Juggling The Jenkins, best selling author of High Achiever

Mary Katherine Backstrom doesn’t sugar coat nor does she hold back on the messy truths of her life. It’s not because MK doesn’t care, it’s because she cares so much. Reading this delightful and funny book is a little bit like grabbing coffee and a side of therapy with your slightly sassy southern best friend who is also best friends with Jesus. —Jen Mann, New York Times Bestselling author of Midlife Bites: Anyone Else Falling Apart, Or Is It Just Me?
