About Fierce, Free, and Full of Fire
Hardcover: 224 pages

Publisher: Thomas Nelson (April 21, 2020)

New York Times bestselling author Jen Hatmaker, with cheeky candor and fearlessness, guides readers to a deep dive into how they are wired and provides them with the tools to walk in that identity with freedom and guts.

Stuck in people-pleasing or fear, many women hide and pretend, then end up sidelined in their own lives. But what they want is to be brave, to claim every gift, dream, quirk, and emotion inside, to stop performing and start living.

Beloved New York Times bestselling author Jen Hatmaker understands the struggle to find firm footing in a culture that operates from stereotypes and often unreachable expectations. In this new book, she offers women encouragement, challenge, and humor as she helps them identify everything that makes them tick and gain the confidence to live it all out. She leads them through five self-reflective categories—who I am, what I need, what I want, what I believe, and how I connect—and helps them:

identify the exact ways they pretend, and learn instead how to be genuine at all times, in all ways, in all contexts;
be empowered to say yes and no without guilt;
learn to voice both their spiritual questions and convictions; and
opt out of drama and into healthy adult relationships.
With wry humor, earnest passion, and been-there insight, Jen calls women to the life-giving freedom of leaning into the identity, convictions, and community they’ve been given.

Review:

This is such a difficult book to review...I received this for review with no knowledge of the author or her views on certain subjects, so I was very surprised when I started reading and came across a plethora of curse words and content that I found offensive.

I liked how the author wasn't afraid to speak her mind or share her true viewpoints on things; I'd rather know what someone believes then them hide their true feelings, even if we don't agree, and I definitely don't agree with most of what was said in this book - both theologically and otherwise. 

All in all, sorry to say that I didn't like this book and I can't recommend it either, because of the content.
