Publisher's Description

You don't have to be everything to everyone. You don't have to try so hard to button it up and hold it together. Join best friends and coauthors Jess Connolly and Hayley Morgan as they reveal how women today can walk in the true liberty we already have in Jesus. 

For all the fullness of God available to his daughters, we often feel limited by two defining insecurities: "I am too much" and "I am not enough."

Jess and Hayley felt the same until one essential question turned the tables: If God is wild and free and he created women, what does this mean for us today? 

Wild and Free is an invitation to find freedom from the cultural captivity that holds us back, and freedom to step into God's wild and holy call in our lives. Jess and Hayley answer difficult questions that so many women have asked them over the years, including:

  • How do I compete with the burden of expectation of what women are "supposed" to be?
  • Where do I actually fit in?
  • How can I start living out my God-given identity every day of my life?

With fresh biblical insight tracing all the way back to Eve and a treasury of practical application, Jess and Hayley reveal how women today can walk in the true liberty we already have in Jesus--because you certainly don't have to quiet the voice that God gave you when he created you to sing. 

Wild and Free will help you shake off the lies of insecurity in your life and step forward to maximize your God-given influence for his glory and the world's good.

As it turns out, the opposite of lost is free. -- Shannan Martin, author of Falling Free (available fall 2016)

If ever there was a time for a book about how freedom in Christ directly speaks to womanhood in our demanding culture, it is now. No matter what our particular calling as women, we are enough!

In a culture where we are constantly bombarded with the message to fit in and conform, Wild and Free is a desperately needed call to action, summoning the passions, desires, and dreams that have, for far too long, been hidden in the caverns of our hearts.

Wild and free are two of my favorite words, and now there’s a book that explores both in a way that is practical, applicable, and relatable.

Each chapter will make you feel inspired and encouraged to pursue both, not just in principle, but in practice. -- Bianca Juarez Olthoff, writer, teacher, and chief storyteller for A21

Into the milieu of self-help, “do more, try harder” books and Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest pressures, Jess Connolly and Hayley Morgan have given a sweet gift to the women of their generation---freedom from finding our identity in anything aside from the love of our heavenly Father and the work of Jesus Christ. With refreshing transparency and deep devotion, they respond to the pressures women experience today with answers that are any- thing but trite religiosity.
