Here's the deal: If you are even reading these reviews and looking to buy Jennie Allen's second book, RESTLESS, then you KNOW there is more out there. The truth is we need to get over ourselves, as Moses needed to do when he stressed over his own weaknesses, and it wasn't even about him. It was about what God desired to do THROUGH him for the benefit of the millions of Israelites who needed a faithful, ever-present, loving, and rescuing God to deliver them from slavery. RESTLESS challenges us to look around us and find out who needs God and pursue them using the gifts, talents, and resources that God has allowed us to have. We need to see that we have been created not to "piddle" around, but to discover the threads that make up the tapestry of our lives and use them to glorify our Lord while we are here. READ THIS BOOK if you want to grow spiritually while you are discovering who your really are.

Can I just saw Wow! Words can't explain how amazing this book is. Just in the first three chapters you can tell how passionate Jennie Allen is about us being restless and going after the will of god. Jennie Allen has always been someone that has kept my attention in everything I have read by her. She is so driven by God it is hard not to want that also. This book has moved me in so many ways and I am now seeing myself being restless for God. Thank You.

Within the first two chapters, it is obvious that Jennie Allen is in her sweet spot. She is passionate about women chasing after the will of God and this book demonstrates that. She uses her light-hearted vocabulary to encourage women in real ways about real things. She keeps me completely engaged and ready to learn about the "threads" that God is using in my own life.

If your soul has ever felt restless, and you have ever found yourself wondering what this whole life is even for, this is the book for you! Jennie is engaging, thought-provoking, encouraging, and even funny at times in this must-read book! You feel like your sitting across the kitchen table over coffee with a dear friend leading you through your life into the next step of your journey. I highly recommend Restless. It is life-changing.

Format: DVD
I had the opportunity to preview the video sessions for Jennie Allen's new Bible Study, Restless. This DVD consists of 8 video sessions which are each about 20 minutes in length. Jennie teaches about how God weaves His story through our lives. Each of us is a unique creation of God, and He desires for us to find our purpose, even if right now it's just in the mundane. After we discover what he has for us, we need to run with all we have to accomplish His purposes.

The Bible Study is based on the life of Joseph. The video sessions mention Joseph occasionally, but he is not the focus of the teaching portion. I think I was at a disadvantage not having the book or study guide to do along side the DVD. Maybe it would have tied things together better.

Jennie Allen is passionate about what she teaches. She is speaking in front of a small group of women in each session which makes it more personal. The videos were shot in a contemporary style. Each one starts with a couple of women trying to answer a random question about themselves. They begin to answer and it cuts to another woman who also begins to answer it. Overall, I felt the topics were good and the videos were well done, but at times the delivery seemed a little dramatic, but hey, I'm on the "older side" now!

The subtitle of Restless is: "Because You Were Made for More." Through this Bible Study, Jennie wants you to understand that we need to look for the "threads" of our life to see how God is weaving them together. Then we can discover what we are meant to do. We were made for more than a lot of us are settling for.

I believe younger women will relate to the study and enjoy it's contemporary feel and style.

We are restless because God made us to leave fingerprints that reflect His glory. We're often too afraid for the discomfort that comes, so we sometimes hide instead of pursuing hope. Jennie suggests that we were made for purpose and commissions us to take the threads of our lives -- the deliberateness of who we were created to be . . . our strengths, talents, and passions -- and "go live" like there is more, because as Jennie says "there is [more]."

This isn't just another *go pursue your dream* kind of book. It's a charge. It's a sharing honestly of the human tendency to hold back and a hand-reaching out to say "let's do this together . . . in spite of our fear" because this is how we will rest.

In this book Jennie takes you through a thought provoking and occasional but powerful journaling experience that helps weave together your life experiences (good and bad), your gifts, passions, people in your life and environments in effort to more clearly see your God given purpose in life. Restless ignites a greater thirst for God and His will for your life. It gets you dreaming freely about what God has in store for you while you are here on Earth.
This book has potential to be a life changing book for those that surrender to it's powerful message. I read it on my own and can't wait to read it again with a group of close friends. As always, Jennie is authentic and inspiring. She challenges you to think deep and go to places that evoke change.
