No more pretending. No more performing. No more fighting to prove yourself.
Are you tired inside and out? Are you trying your best to measure up - yet you still feel as if you're losing ground and missing out on the best parts of life?
You are not alone.
Jennie Allen understands the daily struggle so many of us face with inadequacy and insecurity and the fear that we are not enough. And she invites us into a different experience, one in which our souls overflow with contentment and joy. In Nothing to Prove, she calls us to:
As you wade into the refreshing truth of the more-than-enough life Jesus offers, you'll experience the joyous freedom that comes to those who are determined to discover what God can do through a soul completely in love with him.
Discover the answer to your soul-deep thirst
Too many of us have bought in to the lie that our cravings will be satisfied if we are enough and if we have enough. So we chase image, answers, things, and people - and we wonder all the while, Why am I still thirsty?
My single goal with this book is to lead your thirsty soul to the only source of lasting fulfillment: Jesus. He is the living water, a limitless supply that will not only quench your thirst but will fill you and then come pouring out of you into a thirsty world.
Because of him, you are loved. You are known. You can take a deep breath.
Because you have nothing to prove.

I'm in awe with the fact that one of the most humble women on the face of the earth has Jesus just pouring out of her with reckless abandon. Jenny is guiding not just me, but a legion of women who are Christ followers to truly understand what our purpose on this earth should look and feel like. Grace? Freedom? Purpose? It all pours out of these chapters and just when you think you are ready to close the book for the night, you get the "What if you stop doing things FOR God and started doing things WITH God"? A real challenge to once again, be authentic, be forgiven and above all else, be FOR HIM and WITH HIM.
Perfectionist or burnt out, this is the book for you. You have nothing to prove. Each chapter starts with a bible verse told from one of the characters perspective- so well done, the Bible never felt so current and relevant.
Jennie is transparent and genuine, sharing personal struggles while offering hope. Her ability to articulate the goodness of God and the power He has to work through us is refreshing and inspiring. As a fellow mom of four, a church planter's wife and a past that is not so beautiful, Jennie, you remind me that in all these things He is enough. Thank you for being obedient and discipling a generation.
I am that girl. I am the one who is striving and working and trying and pressing and only reaping stress anxiety and strife. I am going to need the book in print though! Thank you Jennie. I am not enough. And that's more than ok.
