Wow. Last night we were so blessed to get to chat with the incredibly gifted writer, Bible teacher and storyteller, Jennie Allen, about her new book, Restless. Jennie is a beautiful person inside and out and our interview with her felt like having a conversation with an old friend over coffee — she’s so authentic and honest about her own issues and vulnerabilities!
In the chat (and in the book) Jennie addresses the questions, Do you feel restless? Do you feel like you’re missing something? What if this feeling wasn’t a bad thing… because God is planting those seeds of restlessness to ignite a greater thirst for God and His will for your life? Jennie encourages us to take our dreams, gifts, passions, and relationships and give them a purpose–that all these threads in our life were engineered for God’s greater plan and He intends for us to use them for His glory!
If you missed the chat, we have the replay video now available for you and you can read some of the questions Jennie answered in the Storify recap below.
