Product Description

Born to Be Wild is a delightful story-driven invitation to hop onto your "inner Harley" and live life as an adventure instead of a dreaded succession of midlife responsibilities and losses. Jill Baughan uses bite-size chapters that include wonder-filled stories, humor, and relevant Scripture to take us on such an adventure. The chapters are organized chronologically according to the stages of life, with stories that relate to childhood, adolescence, young adulthood, midlife, and old age. Baughan emphasizes that great joy and deep sorrow can walk hand in hand in a life in which an intimate relationship with God is the first priority. Each chapter has "takeaways," making this book suitable for use as a focus book for a weekend retreat or a five-week group study. Paperback.

Author Bio

Born into a close-knit family in the idyllic town of Bluffton, Indiana, Jill Baughan has grappled with a series of painful experiences, ranging from her father’s early death to her own infertility. These hurts have changed her, but her innate wildness remains unshaken. “Even when part of me mourns what’s lost and trembles at what’s to come, I still want to hop on a Harley, swing like Tarzan from a vine, and toilet paper the preacher’s house.” Baughan believes that too many women have let life’s hurts overwhelm their sense of fun, and she, no stranger to pain herself, has written this book to help them rediscover it. Jill Baughan is an English instructor at Virginia Commonwealth University and the author of A Hope Deferred: A Couple’s Guide to Coping with Infertility. Jill serves on the worship ministry team at Cool Spring Baptist Church in Richmond, Virginia. She believes God has gifted her as a goof-off, and she plans to practice this gift until she dies. She has been married to Ben for 29 years, and they have a daughter, Jamie, who came after the couple struggled many years with infertility.
