From the Publisher
"We live with lots of things, lots of people…but do we live for something?”
Do you feel restless? What if this feeling wasn't a bad thing but a longing for God that could push you forward to lead the life for which you were designed? By looking at the life of Joseph you will see how his passions, relationships, and suffering fit into the greater story of God - and how the threads of your life can do the same. Jennie Allen walks you through a practical plan to identify these threads and how to weave them together for God's glory and purposes. Each of the eight sessions in this video-based small group study is approximately 20 minutes long. Included in the kit is a DVD, study guide, leader's guide, and conversation cards.

Anyone who actually reads these reviews I post knows that I love Jennie Allen. I already have two of her bible studies and her book "Anything" and I recommend them to anyone. This girl has a transparent, spirit-led heart and she is just so real and relatable that it really does feel like you're having an encouraging coffee with a friend. Jennie gives me courage to follow Christ more passionately because of the way she does, and how honestly she admits the ways she doesn't.
But anyway, this book. Ok wait, let's talk about "Anything" for a moment. "Anything" was about that prayer "God, we will do anything." It was about completely surrendering your life to God, recklessly following after him with full abandon. I read that book, which led me to pray for my husband and I, about us fully living a sold-out "yes-life" for God again (saying yes even when it's hard with full trust that God knows best"). I never told my husband I was praying for him, or for us, in that way, but a couple weeks later he called me from a youth conference, he walked out of one of the sessions to call me because his heart was so stirred and he felt like it was time for something new, something more. He was restless... This led to even more prayer, wrestling, seeking and eventually resulted in the planting of a brand new church in our city, which I know sounds like some neat-wrapped-up little story when I write it that way, but it has been one crazy spirit-led journey!
So, yeah, "Anything" had a pretty big impact on our lives. Our church plant just had its third service this past Sunday. Enter "Restless". "Restless" is the perfect follow-up for anyone who read "Anything" or it is totally great on its own. Like I said, it isn't just a book, it is a journey. It's about how our gifts, passions, places, and relationships aren't random, they are deliberate and meaningful, and not only that, but about how our suffering can actually be used for good, to give something back to the world. Jennie takes you on a literal journey through your own life, who you are, the threads of your being and asks you to journal and sort through yourself with God so that you can see that you don't have to fit into some cookie cutter image of what it looks like to be a Christian, but rather, see the plan that God has designed and dreamed for you.
Go get this book now, and start your journey towards a more purposeful life. You don't need to add anything to your to do list, you just need to stop and listen right where you are.
