Review: Restless by Jennie Allen

By

restlessAbout Restless
Restless explores the fact that God has called each of us to do great things in his name, and then helps us discover what that might mean for each of us individually. Jennie says, “We are called to dream but we’re afraid to. But because we are called, when we don’t act on it we become restless—restless to find purpose, to make a difference in the world, to matter.”

Jennie doesn’t suggest women add one more thing to their to-do list, but instead invites them to stop and listen where they are. She frees them to be themselves and to see themselves as valuable. In addition to this permission to dream she helps them get over themselves and their issues and then offers a simple process on highly designed journal pages to identify the raw materials—the unique threads—they’ve been given by digging into five areas:
–  Gifts
–  Suffering
–  Places
–  People
–  Passions

Using her own story and that of women with whom she has walked through this process as examples, Jennie weaves in the story of Joseph the dreamer and how God used his threads to fit into the greater story of God. Untangling the threads of our lives and assembling them together in one place reveals a beautiful plan designed by the Creator himself: God’s Agenda + my threads + the need + the Holy Spirit = my purpose

And since living out our purpose is often filled with uncertainties Jennie addresses the doubts, fears, and challenges that hold women back from what they’ve been called to do. This repositioning of their lives is not a promise that all things will be perfect, or will go perfectly, but a promise that it will be the start of the best part of life—the part that completes what we were made for.

Review
What a breathe of fresh air Jennie Allen provides in Restless. The kit that I received is actually a video-based small group Bible study, but I used it on my own. I know, I’m a real rebel. 🙂

In this study, Bible study teacher and author Jennie Allen helps us discover a practical plan to identify the threads of our lives and how to weave them together for God’s glory and purposes. She shares stories from her own life struggles from her own journey and really connects with the watcher/reader on a personal level. She uses the story of Joseph to guide women to God’s Word and show how God used Joseph despite the circumstances that he continually found himself in.

She then introduces Threads, which help the reader connect all the random pieces of their lives to see just what God might be up to.

I loved this study and will definitely be doing more Jennie Allen studies in the future!
