A Guide to Discovering Your First Freedoms in Christ
Christians begin their ﬁrst steps in Christ at the moment of conversion. From that moment on, they have access to freedoms that weren’t possible prior. But every disciple must understand those freedoms and learn how to walk in them, which requires practice.
In First Freedoms, Jennifer Barnett unpacks many “ﬁrst freedoms” that Christians own but often don’t fully integrate into their relationship with God. First freedoms are fundamental tools in prayer that encourage a close, sincere, and ongoing relationship with God. Jennifer explains how to foster freedoms such as cultivating a powerful prayer life, abiding fully in God’s presence, healing emotional scars, battling the schemes of the enemy, and many others.
The goal? Drawing near to God through prayer to enable you to guard your heart with all diligence and grow in intimacy with him. Such wonderful freedoms were never available before putting your faith in Christ. But in Christ you can experience them. Cultivate a wholehearted prayer life and experience the joy and peace that come from walking freely in a meaningful relationship with God. Take your next steps toward God with First Freedoms.

I loved the content of this book so much, as it took me to a way deeper, more intimate level with Christ. As I would talk about it with my family, their interest was piqued. So all 8 of us are going to go through it together! I love that is easy to read, yet applies so deeply. Can't wait to experience it as a family!
First freedoms is one of the best books I have read - so practical and powerful. I recommend it to everyone in our church and on my ministry Staff. Jennifer has such an amazing way of bringing the Word to life and help cultivate a desire to know Jesus more.
This book is the BEST!!
This book is so well written and laid out in such a way that it gently steps you in. This book has opened my eyes to see that a deeper place of abiding with the Lord is possible. That I belong at the table not under it or far away. He wants to be there with me. It also pairs so well with Freedom Prayer and discipleship making. It will bless you!
