Summary

A practical plan to identify the threads of your life and how to intentionally weave them together for God's glory and purposes.

Restless explores the fact that God has called us all to do great things in his name, and then helps us discover what that might mean for each of us individually.

Jennie says, "We are called to dream but we're afraid to. But because we are called, when we don't act on it we become restless—restless to find purpose, to make a difference in the world, to matter."

Using the story of Joseph, the dreamer, Jennie explains how his suffering, gifts, story, and relationships fit into the greater story of God—and how our stories can do the same. Then she introduces Threads—a tool to help readers see their own personal stories and to uncover and understand the raw materials God has given each one to use for his glory and purpose while on this planet.

I loved everything about this!

It was so amazing to sink into Restless with Jennie, and there's something unbelievably powerful about listening to her voice read her words.

LOVED IT!

Any additional comments?

I have listened to this book twice now, and am on my third time through. This book is what my soul needed, I was feeling restless and uncertain of where God was taking me. And this book gives practical steps to discerning what God is calling me too!

Common sense and not compelling

I didn't finish this one--it was just too boring! It didn't go far enough into the "you're made for more than this" line of thinking.

Must read - speaks to your soul

This book is exactly what I needed! Clear from the title it speaks to women (probably men as well) who feel there is something more, that God created them for a higher purpose. Perfect to be read with a small group or close friends. I will be listening a second time with my confidants.

This is a radical book about a radical God

Jennie Allen's Restless is inspiring and a truth and need in my life came screaming to the surface. I had given up thinking I could be more than minimally useful to God. I am so very thankful for this book! Can't wait to start the bible study.

Life changing

Jennie is so real and authentic. She humbly points to Jesus while encouraging you like an old friend. Make sure to have a pen and paper ready cuz you will need to write stuff down. This book will change your life.

Beautiful

This book was amazing. I love her voice and you can feel her sincerity through every word. Everything she said really spoke to me and I’m definitely going to listen to her other books.
