Restless by Jennie Allen


Run, don't walk to get this book! 

Jennie Allen is an incredible author with a real pulse on the questions and longings of our generation. This is my second book of her's to read and each time I find myself asking, "How does she know exactly what I am thinking?" Allen is very relatable and authentic and that translates into a book that will draw you in and help you to realize your God-given dreams and talents and how to use them for His glory.

She asks her readers, "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?" Get ready for an interactive read full of contemplation, journaling, and dreaming. Each chapter has space for writing and reflecting on what you have learned. 

Restless has been very influential in my life. It has helped me to realize that God has put dreams and passions in my life for a reason. I loved being able to journal and process what all was discussed. 

I highly recommend this book for anyone (even though the book is geared towards women) age 18-45. It would be a great book to study and go through with a friend, mentor, or small group.
