Darlene Gaston
Time to Really Live Free
I thought and believed, for most of my Christian walk, I was living "free in Christ." Until one day, for the umpteenth time, God asked me to read about the adulterous woman thrown at his feet. Have you ever wondered how in the world Jesus could tell the adulterous woman to "go and sin no more"? I have, for years, because my life did not line up with what he was telling her to do. I still "sinned," which led me to beat myself up and not love parts of myself. What I had learned and been taught in the church was not working anymore...I was tired. I was exhausted from trying so hard to perform for God, others, and myself. God was getting ready to change my "core beliefs" from what I had learned for years in the church as "truth" to "his truth." I never thought the answer to my question would come at such a price nor take four years of unwinding my core beliefs and writing a book to get there. The answer did come though and is inside this book. I am so excited to share part of the road I traveled, which led me to the answer. Some of this book will be "AHA!" moments for you or you might find yourself saying, "I always believed this within myself, but couldn't put it into words." God desires and invites us to clearly see him as he sees us and to know him as he knows us (1 Corinthians 13:12). He also wants us to learn who we really are in him. I am hoping through this book, like me, you also will find your freedom in Christ because it is time to really live free.

Darlene Gaston was a devoted Christian who loved God and did her
best to live a perfect life. She tried hard to prove her worth to
receive his love and favor. The church she attended had rules that
did not align with the word of God, and she felt like she was
performing and living a fake life. Fortunately, she received a
revelation that opened her eyes to God's unconditional love and
grace. Time to Really Live Free is a book that documents the
lessons she learned from her revelation. Her newfound knowledge
led her church to turn on her, but this did not stop her new way of
living. She began to relearn what having a meaningful relationship
with God meant. Her understanding of sin, forgiveness, the law, and
grace were restructured, and her life of freedom in Christ began.
Time to Really Live Free is a comprehensive study of the difference
between doctrine-driven and spirit-driven lifestyles. Most churches
today have doctrines to keep their congregants in line with fear and
class sins in different categories, which are all man-based beliefs.
Darlene Gaston addresses these ideologies that kept her and her
family in bondage and debunks them with Bible scriptures. Her
work is well-researched, with references and original scripture
definitions. The book is easy to understand and has graphs, charts,
and tables that visualize what the author explains. The book also
has beautiful designs and clear images that correspond perfectly
with the text. I loved reading this book and recommend it to anyone
who wishes to understand what it means to have freedom in Jesus.
