Darlene Gaston didn’t like to write, yet began a blog six years ago, which now has morphed into her first book, Time to Really Live Free. She calls Northern Nevada her home with her husband, Bryan along with her college age boys, Taylor and Cameron.

I love how Paul states to the Galatians,“What actually took place is this: I tried keeping rules and working my head off to please God, and it didn’t work. So I quit being a “law man” so that I could be God’s man. Christ’s life showed me how, and enabled me to do it. I identified myself completely with him. Indeed, I have been crucified with Christ. My ego is no longer central. It is no longer important that I appear righteous before you or have your good opinion, and I am no longer driven to impress God. Christ lives in me. The life you see me living is not “mine,” but it is lived by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. I am not going to go back on that. Is it not clear to you that to go back to that old rule-keeping, peer-pleasing religion would be an abandonment of everything personal and free in my relationship with God? I refuse to do that, to repudiate God’s grace. If a living relationship with God could come by rule-keeping, then Christ died unnecessarily.”Galatians 2:19-21 MSG
My writing confronts the religiosity found within the modern day Christian church. Because of this my family and I have walked through something most people have a hard time believing is true. In my first book I explain clearly and biblically exactly what the Lord showed and taught me so you also can really be free in Christ, because my deepest desire is for everyone to walk in the wide open spaces Jesus created for his beloved.
I am currently in the process of writing my second book which accompanies my first book. Explaining in detail how I live in this free life. It is possible to actually feel and live in an unburdened way in Christ. I hope you find what I write will inspire you, make you think, or propel you forward into a deeper love with our heavenly father, his beautiful son and our comforter, teacher and our promise the Holy Spirit.
