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 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!
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 was a life changing book that helped open my heart to the good that can be used by the ugly parts in my past. Jennie Allen is do transparent and real. The whispersync didn't work properly within the Kindle app but the audible version was great!
This is a beautiful encouraging book for finding your God given purposes! The stories are so personal and real, I cried several times, and I do not cry...

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.
The idea that women are often hesitant to accomplish the great things (great things small and large) they were created for because of their fear of being arrogant was freeing!!!!!! The picture of women hiding in the back so they won't commit the sin they might commit if they launched out for the highest God calls us to.....Wow! As long as I stay close to Jesus and wise counsel, I should not be afraid to fulfill my purpose and my dream to the glory of God.
Thank you Jennie! Your book gave me the strength I need to go deeper into Gods love and to seek the direction He wants me to go in. I look forward to discovering what He has in store for me in His glory. Your passion is contagious and inspiring!
"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.
