Glorious You
All around the world, Fierce, Free, and Full of Fire is helping women stop being sidelined in their own lives and start being brave and claiming their gifts, quirks, and emotions. Now, with this guided journal companion, New York Times bestselling author Jen Hatmaker takes readers through introspection, reflection, and bold declarations on their path to creating their own manifesto about who they are, what they need, what they want, what they believe, and how they connect. In the New York Times bestselling book Fierce, Free, and Full of Fire, Jen Hatmaker invites women to a journey of self-discovery and disclosure, where they end up with a series of twelve statements from five categories: This is who I am This is what I need This is what I want This is what I believe This is how I connect She closes the book with her own statements, a HELLO, WORLD! manifesto of sorts, and invites readers to identify their own. With this companion journal as their guide, Jen now provides fans with the dedicated space to do just that. She offers inspirational excerpts from the book, prompts, introspective questions, and suggested activities, so women all over the world can put all their newfound boldness and truth in writing and learn to offer their truest selves, in all their fullness, as a gift to the world. "For me, the practice of putting pen to paper creates an alchemy hard to duplicate any other way. Something about writing it down helps bring it to life. Committing to something with written words makes it more real, more memorable. You may write something for the first time. Or identify specific relationships, decisions, or beliefs that need the warm light of honesty. Start small: one area, one truth, tell one safe person. Develop muscle memory for authenticity. Learn its rhythms. Practice standing firmly in it. Don''t be afraid; this is good for literally everyone you love in your life. They deserve the true version of you. We all do."

Fierce, Free, and Full of Fire
No more hiding or people-pleasing up in here, sisters. No more being sidelined in your own life. It is time for us to be brave, to claim our gifts and quirks and emotions. You are set free and set up and set on fire. NOW you can get busy doing what you were placed on this planet to do. NOW you can be honest, honest, honest about all of it, even the hard stuff, even the humiliating stuff, even the secret stuff. NOW you can walk in your convictions of faith and ask new questions unafraid. NOW you can be so free, because you are not searching for value from any source other than your own beautiful soul made piece by piece by God who adores you and is ready to get on with the business of unleashing you into this world. In this book, I break it down into five self-reflective categories—who I am, what I need, what I want, what I believe, and how I connect—and by working your way through them, you will learn to own your space, ground, and gifts (they are YOURS, sister); be strong in your relationships and lay down passive aggression, resentment, drama, and compliance; say GUILT-FREE what you want and what you need; and welcome spiritual curiosity and all the fantastic change that doing so creates. You with me, beloveds? If we do this work on our own selves now, not only will we discover a life truly worth living, but we will free our daughters to rise up behind us, with spines straight, heads up, and coated in our strength.

From the woman who acted like a prostitute to the woman who was one, the widow to the adulteress to the mother, each has something to pass on.

Snatching Jen from the grip of her consumer life, God began asking her questions like, “What is really the point of My Church?

She discovered she had missed the point. Christ brought Jen and her family to a place of living on mission by asking them tough questions, leading them through Scripture, and walking together with them on the path.
