A practical plan to identify the threads of your life and how to intentionally weave them together for God's glory and purposes.

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.

Loved it
5 stars By Laura, Dec 27 2015
I loved journeying through this book. Jennie takes us on the road of self discovery. I can honestly say I learnt a lot about myself while I read this. I have read a few more times, each time taking more to put into practice in my life. I love that she gives questions to ponder and journal on as you read. I think we all feel restless at times in our faith and Jennie has orchestrated a book that addresses our inner self and our potential.

Thought-Provoking
5 stars By Funkymunkee, Dec 09 2015
Jennie Allen is one of my favourite authors as she lives her message. He life is a testament to the power of obedience to God.  God takes our little and turns it into more than we could ever imagine.  Restless is a book that helps the reader identify their struggles and areas of giftedness and tie together the threads of their story to start to see patterns and interrelationships.  Each of us has a story that makes sense overall and Jennie takes the reader through a process, step by step to paint a clearer picture, one in which we can see God's handprints even in the seemingly unconnected fragments of our lives.
