About "Restless (Unabridged, 8 Cds)"
Do you feel like you're missing something?What if this feeling wasn't a bad thing? It could be a longing for more of God and a catalyst to living the life that was designed before the foundations of the earth were laid. A lot of us, if we're honest, are afraid. We hold our dreams close to our chest. But our passions have a purpose -- they were engineered for God's greater plan and he intends for us to use them for his glory and purposes. In Restless, Bible teacher and fellow struggler Jennie Allen explores practical ways to identify the threads of your life and how to intentionally weave them together. She explains how your gifts, passions, places, and relationships aren't random; they're deliberate and meaningful. And your suffering -- it's possible it has produced the very thing you want to give back to the world.Using the story of Joseph, the dreamer, Jennie explains how his suffering, gifts, relationships -- all of the threads of his life -- fit into the greater story of God and how our stories can do the same. What would happen if God got bigger than your fear and insecurity, and you spent the rest of your life running without reservation after his purposes for you? You were created for more.

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.
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.
