Discussion Guide

Fierce, Free, and Full of Fire: The Guide to Being Glorious You

By Jen Hatmaker

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.

“Here’s the truth: Jen has been pushing me out of my comfort zone like a loving big sister for over a decade, and that’s exactly what reading this book is like, in the best possible way: like sitting across from someone who loves you enough to tell you the truth and light up your heart and set you free. I want every woman in my life to read this book—every single one.”

— Shauna Niequist, New York Times bestselling author of Present Over Perfect

“Some books are all in the head or all in the heart, others are all in the hustle or the habit, but this book is blood and bone and soul. It pulses with energy and heat, with sincerity and goodness, strength and truth. It is beautifully written, sincerely good, authentically lived absolutely, but I also believe it will literally save lives. I cannot wait to press this book into the hands of every woman I know. A good guide who is worthy of your trust, Jen has offered us more than a map or a guidebook, this is truly a path for transformation, wholeness, and freedom for the sake of the world. I love this book and I love her.”
