Wild and Free By Jess Connolly & Hayley Morgan

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.”
Co-authors and best friends Jess Connolly and Hayley Morgan have felt the same, until one essential question turned the tables on it all: If God is wild and free and he created women, what does this mean for us today?
Wild and Free is an anthem and an invitation in equal parts to find freedom from the cultural captivity that holds us back, and freedom to step into the wild and holy call of God in our lives. 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 don’t have to be everything to everyone. You don’t have to try so hard to button it up and hold it together. And 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.

This is a review that is hard to put into the right words. I want to do this book justice but, you just need to pick up a copy of this book and dive into it. You won't be sorry ladies.
I call this a book of hope. Ladies again this is a MUST read. It is full of stories we can all relate to and toward by two ladies that love us and want to share this journey with us.
I underlined and highlight over half of the book. SO much helpful info in this little book.
Reading it is just like sitting and talking with Connolly and Morgan and spending quality time with close friends.
They define WILD as: walking in who God made us to be and FREE as: resting in what Jesus has done for us.
I never thought of those two words being defined like that.
A life changing book for us ladies who are ready for the change.
I gave this book 5 stars. I HIGHLY recommend this book.
I was given a copy of this book by the publisher for my honest review.
