    One thought on “Wild and Free: A Hope-Filled Anthem for the Woman Who Feels She is Both Too Much and Never Enough

    1. Rachel Dawson

      It is RARE that I love books written by Christian women these days. Usually I find them to be cheesy or cliche or just way too glossy and not real at all, but this one really surprised me. It was honest, relevant, fresh, and not at all cheesy. I loved the way Jess and Hayley took turns writing chapters, but also both responded to the other chapters with their own thoughts. I was encouraged by this one and felt very empowered to live as my truest and freest self, which was awesome. This is one of [...]

    2. Ioana

      This book was talked about so much on social media that even though I was reluctant about giving it a try, I did request it from Net Galley eventually. From the perspective of someone who's been raised in a Christian home, embraces the Christian principles, and knows her status as a child of God - well, this brought little perspective. Sure, there were some nuggets that cemented what I already knew, they were like a friendly reminder when you lose track of something important.Trying to look at t [...]

    3. Lydia Anvar

      I'll admit, I was more than a little hesitant to read another one of "these books." I was prepared for 200 emotionally saturated pages with cheesy metaphors and unrealistic generalizations. However, I was pleasantly surprised. Wild and Free serves as an encouragement to the Christian woman that she is everything she needs to be because of Christ. She's innately good because she's created by an innately good God. Backing everything they say up with Scripture, Jess and Hayley write in an approacha [...]

    4. Stephanie

      Reread. Decided to take my friends advise and reread a favorite to start the year instead of a new book. So glad I reread this. I highly recommend this book to everyone. It's more then just playing the rules of Christianity but rather learning who God has made you.

    5. Megan C Sham

      I absolutely loved this book! It spoke to me in so many ways, but particularly about how to live in a world where we are constantly pulled in every direction by what society deems appropriate. The imagery of Eve in the garden Wild and true to who God made her to be really hit me. We can and are supposed to live like that! The writing is superb and it was concise while being descriptive and I felt immersed in the stories. I loved that it was co-written and I felt that Haley and Jess are different [...]

    6. Kaitlyn Bouchillon

      Wild and Free has one of my favorite taglines ever: “A hope-filled anthem for the woman who feels she is both too much and never enough.” This is a good read for the woman who wants to rest in what Jesus has done for her, while also walking courageously in obedience with the work in front of her. I don't think I'll ever read it again, though. I could barely get through the first time.My favorite quote is: We mean the world to Him [God] not because we're good or we've earned it, but because w [...]

    7. Jessica

      I was really looking forward to reading this one since part of the subtitle is "for the woman who feels she is both too much and never enough." It's easy to feel that way as a Christian if you don't fit the stereotypical view of what a Christian woman is supposed to be like. Growing up in churches where feminism was the other f-word I can totally relate to feeling like I'm "too much" and our overall culture works hard to make sure women always feel like we are "never enough." But, I felt like th [...]

    8. Lisa

      I couldn't even get through the second chapter. The introduction did not give me the slightest understanding of the goals of the authors. I found Jess's writing to be oddly flowery and inaccessible. It reminded me of a bad chemistry professor I had in college who spent the whole lecture providing elaborate metaphors so that when I got home to study, all I could remember were bundled up electrons walking around a fire. Not helpful. Initially, I liked Hayley's writing. I could identify with her an [...]

    9. Bobbie

      Read this book for a women's book study. It was okay, I guess. The book has some very good passages, but a lot of the time there was too much "Christianese". Also, I enjoyed one of the author's writing styles much better than the other, but I am blanking on which one at the moment. Overall, I don't feel like I wasted my time reading this book, but I don't think I'd read it again.

    10. Tiarra

      This book did not really resonate with me as I thought it would. I like the concept of Wild and free however it fell short of expectations and felt like pieces were missing.

    11. Megan Ericson

      Jess Connolly and Hayley Morgan (authors of Wild and Free) dug into my brain, made me realize my thoughts are keeping me captive, and retold the Gospel story in a language my heart craves.Jess and Hayley put to words the feelings so many women have: being both too much and not enough. We have big feelings, big passions and big dreams. However, we fear getting the pious side eye from the Christian community if we let loose and put them on full display. At the same time, we want to be the model wo [...]

    12. Natasha

      What a gem this is. Wild and Free overflows with wisdom and hope. I am surprised by how relatable Jess and Hayley are. I am not particularly religious, but I don't have to be to appreciate the message this book has. Living wild and free means being true to ourselves and acknowledging that we are not bound by societal and cultural expectations. We are meant for something more. This idea came from the original "wild" girl, Eve. Jess wonders,"Did she like to run through the garden and smell the flo [...]

    13. Faith

      "For the Woman Who Feels She Is Both Too Much and Never Enough." I'm willing to guess that readers will pick this book up based on that subtitle alone, because doesn't it just say it all? Not Enough. Not competent enough, not capable enough, not agreeable enough, not accomplishing enough. And also Too Much. Too much need, too much want, too many attachments, too much boldness, too much attitude and personality. Don't we all feel it?? I do. In this book, Jess Connolly and Hayley Morgan have teame [...]

    14. Kristin Ungerecht

      Written by The Influence Network co-founders, Jess Connolly and Hayley Morgan, Wild and Free is a hope-filled anthem for the woman who feels she is both too much and never enough. That description resonates with my heart so well, and I know it resonates with many others. As I dove into my advanced copy of the book, I saw quickly that these pages are a reminder – of our identity, our purpose, our ability to live free and run wild in Jesus’ name. My heart was both encouraged and challenged by [...]

    15. Jordan Covel

      This is a book for any woman who is ready cease striving and step into the freedom of Christ. I haven't read a book with words that seem more relevant for women today than the words in this book. I truly believe that this book is a gift from the heart of God and that He wants to speak to you and remind you of His love for you as you read. We serve this wild and free God and we're invited to live wild and free right alongside Him. I know that you will be blessed as you hear from Jess and Hayley a [...]

    16. Kristin Ferrell

      This was a good read, I like the style of Haley and Jess responding to each other's thoughts at the end of the chapters. I'm giving 3 stars because I don't think this book necessarily had any profound original statements of truth, but instead was more of a reaffirmation of my faith and what I already knew to be true.

    17. Blessing Nkama

      I loved reading this book! It really is filled with hope and rich inspiration for living the free life God called you to live. I also loved that the end of each chapter had a prayer attached to it, evoking a personal and heartfelt feeling. If you're down and your Christian walk with God is not where you want it to be, read this book and it will lead you down the right path.

    18. Autumn

      I really wanted to love this, and I really really didn't. One or two chapters in, I was wondering if it could get more cliché and redundant. But I hadn't made it that far, so I gave it another chance and read a couple more chapters. It did not get better. Having paid for the book, I was motivated to read it, but the content made me stop.

    19. Tiah

      I enjoyed this book at first. I like how the women are completely different and they give opinions on each others chapters ect but there came a point where I felt like they were repeating themselves and I grew bored. However, I love the thought behind it and the message.

    20. Beth Freeman

      I hate to be that person, but I just wasn't sold on this book. It may be because I normally don't like self help type books anyways, but yeah, this just wasn't my cup of tea. It seemed to be stuff I've heard before from so many Christian authors.

    21. Elisabeth Ensor

      This a book all about freedom in Jesus! Everything you do points back to Him and how He wants you freehighly recommend! Read with a friend- buy her the book if you need to

    22. Mackenzie

      I opened "Wild and Free" with the intention of reading it slowly. Having just finished it, I'm glad that I took my time with it. I typically read about two chapters per day. The topics discussed were often dense but very thought-provoking, and I found the theology and interpretation of scripture to be sound. Although the book was written by two authors, I didn't find it to be too difficult to distinguish between their voices. It was interesting to hear the personal thoughts, stories, and convict [...]

    23. Lydia Lengel

      I wasn't expecting to like this book as much as I did. This book is for any woman who needs reminded that she is everything she needs to be in Christ. So, really, it's for every woman. I was afraid of emotionality but Jess and Hayley paint a sweet picture of how the Word of God trumps how we feel, though it doesn't mean we should discount our emotions. The book was extremely Gospel-centered and empowers women toward freedom in Christ and toward obedience. My only criticism is that it seemed to s [...]

    24. Ashley Carmichael

      I thoroughly enjoyed the experience of reading this book and getting to know Jess and Hailey as I did. Hearing both authors perspectives, encouragement and experiences allows for multiple types of women and personalities to relate. I am not generally very wild or free, though as a woman born and raised in a Christian home I knew many of these principles, the perspective from which they are shared is refreshing. One of my favorite ideas is expressed in the opposite of faith not being disbelief bu [...]

    25. Julivete Skelton

      I got this book as a Christmas gift from my small group leader last year. It took me a while to finally pick it up and read it. It wasn’t until summer time where I felt like I could read it and actually process everything that goes on in the book. I don’t usually like reading but I love self-help books because they’re a worth while read. I don’t want to consider myself a consumer but sometimes I just want to learn how to be set free the expectations of the world and this book helped me d [...]

    26. Maggie

      3.75 stars ;) there was much to love about this – I liked the two different authors and appreciated their honest perspectives from two totally different lives/experiences. There were some really fabulous biblical truths and encouragement that as Christ followers we are completely free because of Christ and that we are able to be wild in our faith. The book at times did feel like it was aimed at new believers and I felt that there was a lot of repetition (moments of, "OK, I got it. Enough alrea [...]

    27. Leslie

      Wild and Free is an encouraging, invigorating manifesto on the freedom in Christ that every believer is called to live in. This book gave me vision for specific ways to live in freedom in my parenting, marriage, and friendships, and the stories and memories that Jess and Hayley shared were helpful and poignant. It’s a unique book in that the authors alternated writing the chapters - each one switches back and forth, which I mostly enjoyed. The pacing of the writing could have had a little more [...]
