Chase Study Guide Book Review:

What are you chasing? We’re all chasing after something, something that we think will make us happy—comfort, success, a bigger house, or someone’s approval. But if we are all honest, it feels like trying to catch the wind. A man after God’s own heart… As David’s life weaves throughout the pages of Scripture, we see he was a man who spent his life chasing after God. Chase explores the events that defined David’s life and the Psalms that flowed out of those experiences. Through David’s example we’ll discover what God really wants from us. The lessons in this study guide are simple yet deep and very interactive, offering Bible study, stories, and projects to dig into Scripture and deeply engage the mind and heart. God has carved out a space in each of us that only He can fill. So whether you are running from God or working your tail off to please Him, David’s journey will challenge your view of God. God is invisible, and yet He is the only thing we can chase that won’t leave us feeling more empty.

Restless Book Review:

Do You Feel Like You're Missing Something? Jennie Allen, founder of If: Gathering, directs you on how to find the best way to use your spiritual gifts. What if this feeling wasn’t a bad thing? It could be a longing for more of God and a catalyst to living the life that was designed before the foundations of the earth were laid. A lot of us, if we’re honest, are afraid. We hold our dreams close to our chest. But our passions have a purpose—they were engineered for God’s greater plan and he intends for us to use them for his glory and purposes. In Restless, Bible teacher and fellow struggler Jennie Allen 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. To dive deeper into the Restless message, additional resources such as a DVD study and leader/participant guide books are available.

Get Out of Your Head Study Guide Book Review:

Stopping the spiral of toxic thoughts. Are your thoughts holding you captive? Jennie Allen knows what it’s like to swirl in a spiral of destructive thoughts, such as I’ll never be good enough. Other people have better lives than I do. God couldn’t really love me. But Jennie also knows we don’t have to stay stuck in toxic thinking patterns. As she discovered in her own life, God built a way for us to escape that downward spiral. Freedom comes when we refuse to be victims to our thoughts and realize we have already been equipped with power from God to fight and win the war for our minds. In Get Out of Your Head, a six-session video-based Bible study, Jennie inspires and equips us to transform our emotions, our outlook, and even our circumstances by taking control of our thoughts.

You Are the Girl for the Job Book Review:

You believe (or want to believe) God has called you and given you purpose, but where do you start? How do you get from feeling stuck to making a move? If this sounds familiar, bestselling author Jess Connolly has a message for you: You Are the Girl for the Job. But this is not simply a peppy catchphrase. This is the straight-up truth God has proclaimed over your life from the beginning, and it's not dependent on what you can do or achieve but based on His power, capacity, and character. It has taken one million, maybe one zillion (who knows?!), slight moves of His hand to place you in this exact moment. So forget about fear and second-guessing your gifts, because God has meticulously prepared you to be an ambassador for the Kingdom right where you are, here and now. Life is too short to get stuck in a holding pattern of shame, self-doubt, and comparison. So let this book be your very good news: you don't have to wait for permission when you've already been commissioned. With passion and heart-pumping hope, Jess shows that being the girl for the job doesn't depend on your capacity. Rather, it has everything to do with God's capacity and our willingness. It has everything to do with believing we are who God says we are, and quieting any inferior word spoken against us. Are you ready? Let this book be your jumpstart into confident, purposed living, as Jess walks you through the six steps she has used to coach and encourage women for years: set your focus, take stock of the story that has shaped you, face your fear, catch the vision, make a plan, and finally, make your move--all in the bold belief that God has called you to every step of the journey.

Why You're Stuck Book Review:

Are You Pissed Off That Life Didn't Give You An Instruction Manual?Do you find yourself struggling to figure out what you really want in life? Or do you know exactly what you want, but can't ever get it because you're trapped by fears, unwanted thoughts, and unshakeable habits?Are you successful in certain areas, but still feel like something is missing in your relationships, finances, physical health, or overall happiness?No matter what your challenge is, the root cause of why we get stuck in any area of life is fundamentally the same. The good news is that when you understand what's really been secretly holding you back, you'll finally have the map for how to escape. You're about to discover:• The secret to getting answers when you're feeling lost, confused, and have no idea what to do or where to even begin.• How to tap into your inner strength to experience more motivation, happiness, and fulfillment on demand – regardless of what's happening in your life.• How to get whatever you want even if you're stressed out, busy, or have a million excuses.• What the 6 things are that drive all of your behavior and how to tap into them to reprogram any thought or habit on a neurological level.• What the most common fear is that holds people back, and why you'll never overcome it until you understand this one simple thing.• Why it's impossible to remove a bad habit, and what you must do instead.• Why a force stronger than willpower may be your missing link to getting yourself out of any rut.• Why much of the great advice you've heard, especially from self-help and personal development gurus, may be the very thing that's keeping you stuck.• Why looking to find your life's purpose is almost always going to backfire on you.• Why the truth gets you stuck more often than lies, and what the “real” truth is when it comes to you becoming a master of your life.• How being selfish can be the best thing for you and for the rest of the world.• Why being stuck may be exactly what you need to make your next breakthrough.If you've ever asked yourself... • What's my purpose and how do I find it? • Why do I know I should feel grateful, happy, or fulfilled but still I feel absolutely miserable?• Why can't I get myself to do the things I say I'm going to do?• Why are people crazy and how do I learn to live with them?• How can I stop obsessive thoughts and get rid of unwanted emotions?• What can I possibly do to change things when everything seems so hopeless and beyond my control?If so, then this will be one of the most eye-opening books you'll ever read. How can I make such a bold claim?I am regular guy who used to be out of shape, broke, and struggling to find answers to life's big questions. After years of study and thousands of dollars spent on education from the world's leading experts in psychology, neuroscience, spirituality, and personal development, I applied many great concepts to my own life. And... nothing much happened.At least not until I discovered a few more key insights that tied everything together into a concise system. Since then, I've become a bestselling author, achieved financial freedom, maintain a fit body year round, and am living a life of freedom and fulfillment. So I decided to write the book I wish I had handed to me from the very start of things, the instruction manual for life if you will, to help you achieve whatever breakthroughs you desire in your life. This book is my gift to you, and I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it. To your happiness and success, Derek Doepker

Into the Wild Book Review:

In April 1992 a young man from a well-to-do family hitchhiked to Alaska and walked alone into the wilderness north of Mt. McKinley. His name was Christopher Johnson McCandless. He had given $25,000 in savings to charity, abandoned his car and most of his possessions, burned all the cash in his wallet, and invented a new life for himself. Four months later, his decomposed body was found by a moose hunter. How McCandless came to die is the unforgettable story of Into the Wild. Immediately after graduating from college in 1991, McCandless had roamed through the West and Southwest on a vision quest like those made by his heroes Jack London and John Muir. In the Mojave Desert he abandoned his car, stripped it of its license plates, and burned all of his cash. He would give himself a new name, Alexander Supertramp, and , unencumbered by money and belongings, he would be free to wallow in the raw, unfiltered experiences that nature presented. Craving a blank spot on the map, McCandless simply threw the maps away. Leaving behind his desperate parents and sister, he vanished into the wild. Jon Krakauer constructs a clarifying prism through which he reassembles the disquieting facts of McCandless's short life. Admitting an interst that borders on obsession, he searches for the clues to the dries and desires that propelled McCandless. Digging deeply, he takes an inherently compelling mystery and unravels the larger riddles it holds: the profound pull of the American wilderness on our imagination; the allure of high-risk activities to young men of a certain cast of mind; the complex, charged bond between fathers and sons. When McCandless's innocent mistakes turn out to be irreversible and fatal, he becomes the stuff of tabloid headlines and is dismissed for his naiveté, pretensions, and hubris. He is said to have had a death wish but wanting to die is a very different thing from being compelled to look over the edge. Krakauer brings McCandless's uncompromising pilgrimage out of the shadows, and the peril, adversity , and renunciation sought by this enigmatic young man are illuminated with a rare understanding--and not an ounce of sentimentality. Mesmerizing, heartbreaking, Into the Wild is a tour de force. The power and luminosity of Jon Krakauer's stoytelling blaze through every page. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Nothing to Prove Book Review:

"Are you trying your best to measure up -- yet you still feel as if you're losing ground? Jennie Allen understands the daily struggle so many of us face with 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 & Find freedom from self-induced pressure by admitting we're not enough -- but Jesus is ... Admit our greatest needs and watch them be filled by the only One who can meet them ... Make it our goal to know and love Jesus, then watch what He does in and through us. 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."--Amazon.com.
