Wild and Free - Book Review

When I downloaded this book to my iPad I had never heard of either of the authors - Jess Connolly or Hayley Morgan. The title intrigued me and the subtitle closed the deal. 

"A hope-filled anthem for the woman who feels she is both too much and never enough"


Who has ever been there? {:insert emoji with blonde girl raising her hand:}

This book had me at the foreword, and I don't ever read forwards. If you follow along with me on Insta you would have seen my post about how much I was loving this book before I ever even hit chapter one. 

Jess and Hayley have a very conversational writing style but a powerful message - a message that if applied to your everyday life could change everything about the way you see yourself and how you outwork the plans and purposes of Jesus in your life. 

Jess and Hayley write alternating chapters and while you can sense through their words how their personalities sit on two opposing ends of the spectrum, it brings balance and articulation to both sides. One states how her big personality feels overbearing sometimes but she is faced with the feeling of still never measuring up. While the other is more reserved and doesn't have the personality of what the world says is a leader and struggles to believe she measures up while still struggling with the idea of being too much for others to handle. 

These two authors touch on a topic that gave voice to a feeling within me I didn't know I had. I  devoured this book in less than a week. I am so glad that not knowing the authors of this book didn't stop me from pressing the download button. It is well worth the investment, because life is too short to live any other way than wild and free.
