More About the Author

My passion is to inspire a new generation of women to encounter the invisible God. I love words and I believe God uses them to heal souls and to reveal Himself to people. I am blessed to be working with Thomas Nelson to publish several studies and trade books, engaging women's minds and hearts toward Christ. The first study, Stuck released in the fall of 2011, and the book, Anything released Spring 2012.

I graduated from Dallas Theological Seminary with a Masters in Biblical Studies. And while all that sounds pretty fancy... I am really just a mess of a girl, trying to figure out God, and why I seem to keep struggling with the same invisible issues I had in kindergarten.

I am so blessed to serve alongside my husband Zac, in ministry in Austin, Texas. We have 4 children: Conner 11, Kate 9, and Caroline 6 and our youngest son, Cooper 4, recently adopted from Rwanda.

The subtitle of this book says it all: The prayer that unlocked my God and my Soul. That's a magnificently powerful statement to make on the cover of a book, or anywhere else for that matter. Anything. How many of us pray genuinely to God that we will do anything for Him? Not a surface prayer that we back out of while sputtering excuses to justify our fickleness (and weakness in our resolve) when that anything becomes something too hard, but a deep heartfelt, on our face surrendering of our entire lives to the Lord without reservation.

It seems terrifying almost, at least to me. What if he calls you to sell everything you own and move to a third world country? What if he asks you to do something that for which you feel utterly unequipped? What if anything means you go through the worst trials of your life all for His glory?

Here in America, Christians have the luxury of comfort, relative safety and the freedom to live their lives however they see fit. Even the poorest among us our leaps and bounds ahead of most of the world. We're raised from birth to work hard to attain our "American dream." While there is nothing wrong with seeking to provide well for our families and to be successful in life, has this focus on climbing ladders both social and financial caused the modern day American Christian to avert their eyes from our true purpose---to spread the love of Jesus throughout the world.

We've also begun to fit our faith into our own little labeled boxes, with lists of rules and principles taped to the side. A Christian is...followed by a laundry list of traits that we ought to exhibit to be a "good Christian woman.

Format: Paperback
Anything wins the award for the best book I've read in the past year. However, it wasn't because I learned something new or was introduced to an idea that I hadn't heard before. It's because it caused my heart to be sifted...allowing those nuggets of passion, God-honoring risk, and non-complacency to rise to the surface.

It's easy to lose passion and desire for risk. Kids come along and it's not as easy to take a risk for the sake of the Kingdom. It's easier to do things in such a way that, in general, there is a known outcome.

However, this book showed up at my doorstep at a good time. Through it, God reminded me of who we're living for, what our purpose is here, and to not give up just because it's hard. Of course it's hard. But being soft-hearted and willing to say `yes' to the voice of God, even if it doesn't look "normal" is worth it. It's what I signed up for when I said "yes" to Jesus.

In her book, Jennie does a great job of telling her family's story of how God shook up their hearts and lives a little bit, and how He has used their willing, surrendered hearts to change the life of the people around them. She also does a good job of showing that saying to God, "we'll do anything", doesn't mean you move to Africa. Sometimes it looks like moving closer to home to take care of a sick mom. Other times it looks like adopting or fostering children in your community or across the world. Sometimes it looks like staying put, and being more intentional in living simply and giving generously to those around you in need. But she reminds us that following Jesus certainly does cost something.

One chapter in particular sticks with me.

I love this book!!! It opened my eyes to see how I had been holding back in an area of my life where I didn't want to. If you believe in God but aren't seeing Him move in powerful ways in your life, please consider reading this book. It's a wonderful story of the author's willingness to hand over the reigns of her life to God. Many of us have faith and even a relationship with God, but reading this challenged me to give Him everything, and let Him do ANYTHING He wants with my life. My life couldn't be more richer as a result of this simple but difficult act of faith. He is an adventurous, loving, exciting, deep, personal God who is pleased when His children trust Him with anything and everything.

Format: Kindle Edition
Socrates maintained that the best life, in measure, is apprehended when the soul ponders ultimate beauty in its pure form and when it pursues knowledge of ultimate forms. Others, who believe that human existence and our universe are just "accidental afterthoughts," leave souls in despair, immersed in purposelessness. If one reads Bertrand Russell summing up life as "unyielding despair," one starts to ache for meaning and purpose. To find meaning in life, one has to look to the true and living God. He is the God of the living and He gives life purpose and meaning. Life is a sacred gift to be unwrapped everyday with the joy of a child's birthday.

And Jeanie Allen in "Anything" reminds the reader that our hearts were made to live in and for God. All else, in the end, doesn't really satisfy. But God is real and His children live with Him now, and afterward forever. Thus He should be our main focus and for, primary love, and foremost joy.

The Bible instructs people to do "all things for the glory of God." Holy writ notifies the world that in our life, we can have the supreme joy of knowing the Father in a loving, covenant relationship. One cannot have real meaning in this life without the Lord Jesus Christ. Emptiness, loneliness, purposelessness, and despair are the companions of those who do not seek God in Christ. A covenant life with God Almighty brings daily enrichment, enchantment, and a wonder-filled life. Doing all things for the glory of God and enjoying Him brings a splendor-filled zest to the daily delights of nature, employment, motherhood, children, friends, God's Word, prayer, and a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

So say to the Lord: "God, we will do anything. Anything!"
This is the central point of this inspiring volume.
