Publishers Description Born to Be Wild is a delightful story-driven invitation to hop onto your inner Harley and live life as an adventure instead of a dreaded succession of midlife responsibilities and losses.

The chapters are organized chronologically according to the stages of life, with stories that relate to childhood, adolescence, young adulthood, midlife, and old age.

Born to be Wild by Jill Baughan Oct 26, 2009
We all need to have a little fun every now and then. Author Jill Baughan is an expert on having fun and she shares her experiences and wisdom in Born to be Wild: Rediscover the Freedom of Fun. Jill has had some painful times in her life, but she has never failed to remember the importance of fun and play. In this book, she shares her experiences and stories from all the phases of her life and helps the reader find his or her inner child. Each chapter has a personal story about how a little fun helped her deal with a painful or difficult situation.
I had a lot of fun reading this book. It is inspiring to read about this author's experiences and how she never gave up on having fun and staying young at heart. So many times, we get bogged down by life and forget, especially as adults, that having fun is God's way. Jill gives the reader a lot to think about with her `Try This' reflections at the end of the chapters and with several verses of Scripture throughout. I especially enjoyed the cow suit story. I can't say I would have the courage to do some of the things Jill has done, but I sure had a good time reading about them. It was hard to put this book down. It is funny, without being corny and it is heartwarming, without being heavy. Read this book and have some fun!

You're never too old to enjoy life/living Sep 27, 2009
I had read this book some time ago and truly enjoyed it, especially since I'm over 60. Our ladies' Sunday School class is reading it now in 'round-table' fashion, one chapter each week, so we needed 10 books at a reasonable price and this site.com came across for us on that. We plan on an enjoyable 12-15 weeks reading and discussing Jill's experiences. Virgie, St Louis

"Born to be Wild" is unique in that it provides help but also entertains when you least expect it. Reading the book brought back memories of my own. A good read when you need a lift. She shows us that God is in the little things as well as the big! I was blessed.

A joyful and empowering addition to the many self-help books out there. Fun to read, with thought-provoking references to biblical passages that support the author's view that life is intended to be fun!
Laughed until I cried Feb 20, 2007
This book will have you laughing out loud. The book is hard to put down. Each chapter has a zany twist with an inspirational ending. I highly recommend every "Wild thing" to read it.
