Do you feel stuck?

So many of us live stuck. Stuck in trying to seem perfect. Stuck in sadness. Stuck feeling numb. Stuck pursuing more stuff to make us happy. Stuck in something we can't even name. These stuck places often go unattended inside of us and they are shaping our lives more than we would like to think. We've been trying to fix this feeling with everything but...

God. He has a plan for these spaces inside of us, the places we feel broken, but we have to go to Him. Stuck is a journey to take an honest look at the fight going on inside, leading us to the God who has a plan to restore it, to restore us.

The eight lessons in this study guide are simple and interactive, offering projects, stories, and Bible study to dig into Scripture, to deeply engage the mind and heart. Because as we realize that our stuck places are the very places that make us ache for God, we find Him waiting there for us with hope and freedom.

Designed for use with the Stuck DVD (ISBN: 9780849922541)

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Study! Dec 20 2011
Format:Paperback
So many women feel stuck in their roles in the world - mother, sister, worker, wife, girlfriend, chef, chauffeur, disciplinarian. So many things in our lives can conveniently make a good excuse for not taking a closer look at our spiritual lives, and to focus on God who can give us a whole new perspective on our lives.

In a world that tells us to focus more on ourselves and what makes us feel good, God reminds us that a life not focused on Him and focused on satisfying our sinful, selfish desires leads to "stuck-ness"; a sense that our lives mean nothing, and life itself becomes dreary and humdrum as it churns along.

Jennie Allen has written a very poignant study to help pull us out of our "stuck-ness" and into a closer relationship with God and in turn, a closer relationship with ourselves, our children and our husbands.

Stuck Study is to the heart, very personal, well-written and articulated. Allen shares a bit of herself in each lesson to help illustrate her point and she pulls no punches about her failings and how the Lord has shown her these lessons that she's passing along to us. Each lesson has 4 focused projects which help us apply the spiritual lesson to our daily lives, and allows introspection and reflection on the lesson from the Scriptures.

In general, I found this study to be challenging and I looked forward to reading the next lesson.

My only negative comment would be the glossy pages. Gloss makes for good presentation, but pen ink smears on glossy surfaces and may not work as well for those who like to use pencil.

I would highly recommend this study for individuals and for small and large groups. It is well worth the time and effort. There is simply no compromise for getting closer to God and examining our relationship with Him. The stronger our relationship with God, the more equipped we will be to be the wives, sisters, mothers, aunts, etc, that God has called us to be.

5.0 out of 5 stars A marvellous study guide! Sept. 14 2011
By Karla Hanns - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
"Stuck" Study - the places we get stuck and the God who sets us free!
By Jennie Allen
This review is on one chapter of the book and the DVD that accompanies the book.
WHAT a marvellous study guide this is- meant for women of all ages and all walks of life!!
It would be a great group study, where women could discuss their views and feelings. The guide includes a section in which you write your feelings about each topic. You are provided with a Bible study and then examine your feelings with regard to it. The DVD has more to examine of each chapter and I will be honest with you, it really makes you think- with the author explaining more and the lovely graphics that hit you - in a meaningful way.

I was provided with the chapter entitled, "Mad" and it was most appropriate for me this week !! I was mad!! My daughter , who is a fourth year university student in nursing, was denied the right to complete her clinicals, due to a boyfriend situation , who ended in a legal battle. My daughter was declared innocent but not in time to get her clinical placement. Boy, was I mad!! How unfair!! The guilty walk free, and my child suffers!!! I was furious, with the legal system, the university, the lawyer, etc. Then, I read this chapter, and watched this DVD. You know, I was wrong!! Yes, wrong. I have the right to be angry, but will it do any good? NO!! God has to remove that feeling. He has the power to solve our problems and we don't need to get upset. I have prayed about the matter, done the work provided in the book and watched the video and guess what??? I no longer feel angry, worried maybe, but that too, can be answered with faith in God's power. Our problems can be taken care of with prayer. As women, we feel things differently from our husbands, thus must handle them in our own way with God's help.
This book and DVD are a valuable resource and could be used alone, but I can see it being used with a woman's group, the discussion would be fantastic as you share what God has worked in your life.
I commend Jennie Allen, the author , on addressing issues that plague us, but are often not spoken of. We are embarrassed that we have these feelings. After all, we are Christians, aren't we?? Should we feel this way? YES!! But we need to deal with them, as the author explains. A fantastic tool to work with!!
WOW , did it help me! Thanks, Jennie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unlike any Bible Study I've done! Sept. 15 2011
By Bekah - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I am truly a different person because of God's power and tools like this Study! I've completed several studies in the past that help me study God's word but this helped me apply God's word like never before. It challenged me to dig deep and to ask the hard questions we don't like to answer. It helped me process things that needed to come out so that I could be healed and it has been such a life changer! I was so inspired by this study and thankful for the author being honest and vulnerable. I really believe she will be able to help many women experience true life change as they become un-stuck!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great discussions and guide, DVD a little cliche at times May 13 2012
By C. Anderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am involved in a bible study with an AMAZING group of ladies here in Huron. They are seriously AMAZING. And they are totally worth the gratuitous use of all-caps. Our group is very diverse. We have Baptists, Pentecostals, Presbyterians, Christian churchers, Missionary Alliancers, non-denominationals and Methodists. In addition to that we have three pastor's wives! It is a fun group with very diverse perspectives. I love it.

We recently reviewed the Stuck study by Jennie Allen. It is designed to be an 8 week study. We got the DVD study box set and then purchased additional copies of the study guides so that everyone had one. The study box set comes with the DVD, leader's guide, study guide and discussion questions. The leaders guide has suggested formats, but we usually shared prayer requests, insights from the homework and study guide, watched the DVD and then used the discussion question cards.

The ladies in my group really enjoyed this study. I enjoyed it, but I guess I was expecting more. I have a high sensitivity to any Christianease and I tend to be really turned off by it. This study contains quite a bit of Christianease and the DVD sermonettes get a little cliched at times both stylistically and content-wise. I know that Jennie Allen is sincere, but it feels a little youth groupy and not meaty and real enough sometimes.

I loved the study guide most of the time. There are great exercises at the end of each week and they really engage all learning styles. Sometimes she has you list, other times write, other times draw and even sometimes go out an do something. It is wonderful.

The discussion cards were amazing. We would pass the cards for the week around and let everyone choose their favorite question and then ask as many as we could discuss within the time we had. This study prompted amazing conversations and really drew us together as a group. I can't say that I necessarily feel completely unstuck, but it got me thinking, which is really what it is all about.

If you enjoy the Nooma video style from Rob Bell you will definitely enjoy Jennie's style on the DVDs. The book and DVD set have a young, hip feel which is great in a world full of middle-aged women's studies.

All in all it was good and I would recommend it to others. I give it a four out of five. Sometimes Jennie just felt a little forced in the DVDs like she was trying to make me feel an emotion instead of just telling a story. But, the discussions and study guide made it all worth it.

Note for Full Disclosure: While I do not receive any monetary compensation for my book reviews, I am provided with free complimentary copies of each book. That being said, this review is completely my own, and free from the influence of Thomas Nelson Book Publishers.

5.0 out of 5 stars REAL Dec 7 2011
By 2Es&anH - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I joined a Bible Study seeking to revive my floundering faith. Overwhelmed with life, questioning my life's decisions and where I was in life, I was struggling daily with the question, 'if this is God's plan for my life, why am I so miserable?'. That's where I found 'Stuck'. It met me where I was at that moment...broken, weak, running on the hamster wheel of life wondering if THIS is what I was put here to do...and ANGRY about that. Jennie is REAL. It is SO refreshing. So often as women, and even more, as Christians, we put on the 'everything's FINE!' smile and go about our day, not revealing our innermost struggles with self-doubt, doubt of the 'realness' of God in our lives, struggles we have with our children, husbands, our roles as wife, mother, friend, believer. Jennie cuts right through that with a Biblically-based realness that is refreshing, revealing and revitalizing. She's honest about her daily struggles with faith and the world. Her longings that often conflict with God's plans...she doesn't claim to have all the answers, but seems to be working right along side you through every topic. And that is refreshing. As a Christian, I have often assumed that once you are saved and are walking with God, you never doubt again, you're never angry again, you have released all your fears, you are happy and content at all times with where God has put you. Jennie reveals that no matter where you are in your walk with Christ, we are STILL human...we are still drawn back to the world and our minds and spirits are easily drawn away from the grace that God has poured out on all of us. We ALL get stuck. And working thru this study, God draws you out of that place...and changes your life...and then provides you with a great reference tool to go back to over and over again...My life is forever changed. Thank you for sharing your gifts from God, Jennie!

5.0 out of 5 stars Getting Unstuck to Live for God Study Guide Oct. 18 2011
By Mike Robinson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The Bible reveals that Elizabeth was the barren cousin of Mary in the story of the nativity. Additionally, Elizabeth, like her husband, was righteous before God and she lived "blamelessly according to all the commandments and laws of God" (Luke 1). So Elizabeth was a devout and righteous woman. Being named as righteous in Holy Writ is quite an honor and her righteousness would have been a reflection of her faith in the Lord. However Elizabeth was barren. Similarly, the Old Testament women Sarah and Hannah were righteous women who could not bear any children until God stepped in. Unfortunately, sometimes all women go through seasons where you feel barren in one area or another: spiritually, emotionally, intellectually; perhaps as a wife or an employee.
But remember that Elizabeth was barren even while righteous in God's sight. Sometimes we get stuck in a rut as guilt, shame or spiritual apathy keeps us dry and barren even as we seek to live for God. And in Jennie Allen's "Stuck" Bible studies one finds biblical ways to stop perpetuating all your setbacks.

This Bible Study Consists of:

- Practical Tools to help to enable open and honest conversations
- a Study Guide that will help one assess oneself as the short five a week lessons help change your life

We often get stuck in emotional and spiritual difficulties as we overlook the Lord. Then we can't figure out how to get unstuck. Herein one finds a potent resource that will assist women understand their need for God and all the wonderful blessings He has for them as they learn to rightly follow Him.
I received a gratis copy of this book from BookSneeze in exchange for a review.
