It’s June already. I can’t even believe it. Summer is practically here! As you may recall, I have been reading one book a month as a personal growth challenge of sorts.
My book for May was called “Wild and Free” by Jess Connolly and Hayley Morgan. First of all, let me just say this to start:
EVERY WOMAN, YOUNG or OLD, NEEDS TO READ THIS BOOK.
It deals with two of the biggest issues women of all ages have dealt with since the dawn of time. Never being enough or Always being too much. We are either one or the other. Sometimes both!
It takes the reader through the lives of two women, one introvert and one extrovert. Both women talk about their journey from self-doubt to God-confidence. They are real, raw, and relate-able.
Lastly, included is an anthem for women everywhere that raises our eyes upward from our circumstances and fills us with everlasting hope. It goes like this:
“The world may tell us we’re too much and never enough.
But we can walk wildly in who God created us to be and rest freely in the work Jesus did for us.
We do not have to be confined or conformed by cultural expectations.
We are unchained from our past and unafraid of our future.
We choose compassion over comparison.
We love without condition, without reserve.
Our eyes are on God; we hold nothing back; we run fast and strong; we do not hide our light.
We aren’t wild and free for our sake alone; rather we sing life, hope, and truth over the world with abandon- just as our God sings over us.
We are wild and free.
And we are poised to do mighty things, in Christ alone.”
Check this amazing book out! You’ll be motivated and encouraged to live out your God-given purpose with joy and confidence.
