A year ago I first heard of Jennie Allen when I reviewed her Bible studyChase. I was immediately impressed. She has great knowledge of the Lord and His Word but beyond that she communicates in a way that's easy to understand, engaging and practical.
And just like Chase, Restless isn't just a heap up a bunch of head knowledge type of study. It gets to the heart and yet doesn't bypass the mind. A beautiful combination! Jennie has a gift of teaching and a passion for women to not just have information but for them to deeply connect with each other and with the Lord with the end goal of life change for the glory of God.
The kit comes with the study, a DVD with eight sessions, conversation cards for each week and the leaders guide. (I seriously can't believe the publisher can provide all of this for the price!)
A Little Bit About the Study
The vision of Restlesss is the help people get a bigger picture of God and eternity and as a result you would live more for Jesus and eternity than for what this short life has to offer. Jennie hopes that you would dream about what it looks like for God to use you and would help encourage that in others.
Jennie explores practical ways to identify the threads of your life and how to intentionally weave them together. She explains how your gifts, passions, places, and relationships aren’t random; they’re deliberate and meaningful. And your suffering—it’s possible it has produced the very thing you want to give back to the world.
Using the story of Joseph, the dreamer, Jennie explains how his suffering, gifts, relationships—all of the threads of his life—fit into the greater story of God and how our stories can do the same. 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? You were created for more.
The lessons in this study guide are engaging and interactive, offering in-depth Bible study, personal stories, and projects enabling the teaching to move off the page and into your life.
