The visionary behind the million-strong IF: Gathering challenges Christian women to transform their outlook and their lives by interrupting their spiralling thoughts and realizing their God-given power to think differently. “A must-have resource for anyone looking to get control of their thoughts.”—Lysa TerKeurst, #1 New York Times best-selling author and president of Proverbs 31 Ministries Are your thoughts holding you captive? I’ll never be good enough. Other people have better lives than I do. God couldn’t really love me. Jennie Allen knows what it’s like to swirl in a spiral of destructive thoughts, but she 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, Jennie inspires and equips us to transform our emotions, our outlook, and even our circumstances by taking control of our thoughts. Our enemy is determined to get in our heads to make us feel helpless, overwhelmed, and incapable of making a difference for the kingdom of God. But when we submit our minds to Christ, the promises and goodness of God flood our lives in remarkable ways. It starts in your head. And from there, the possibilities are endless.

What if you told God you would do anything . . . and he took you up on it? Anything is a prayer of surrender that will spark something. A prayer that will move you to stop chasing things that just make you feel happy and start living a surrendered life that matters. In the years since the initial release of Anything, God continued to stretch Jennie Allen and her faith because of the courageous prayer of surrender that she and her husband, Zac, prayed, God, we will do anything. Anything. Previously caught in the dizzying haze of worldly happiness and empty pursuits, Jennie went on to begin living out the adventure God had written for them-to include becoming the founder of IF: Gathering, an organization to gather, equip, and unleash the next generation to live out their purpose. This newly revised edition boasts updates throughout, including: A new introduction An in-depth Bible study component for those who hope to lead a study on this topic And more! Join Jennie on an adventure to discover your anything, those things that actually mean nothing until you know the God truly worth giving it all up for. And when you do, that will change everything. Anything is also available in Spanish, Lo que me pidas.

Also spricht sie eines Abends mit einem mulmigen Gefuhl die Worte aus, die ihr auf dem Herzen liegen: Herr, ich will dir alles geben. Von heute an will ich alles tun, was du von mir verlangst. Alles. ngstlich wartet sie auf Gottes Antwort. Wird sie ihr Haus verkaufen, nach Afrika gehen, fr ihren Glauben sterben mssen? Geduldig und liebevoll offenbart Gott Jennie, was es wirklich bedeutet, ihm ganz zu vertrauen. Jennies Geschichte inspiriert und ermutigt dazu, sich selbst auf den Weg zu machen - zu einem befreiten Leben ohne Mittelma
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. Do you feel like you're missing something? 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. In Restless, Bible teacher and fellow struggler Jennie Allen: Explores practical ways to identify the threads of your life How to intentionally weave those threads together Explains how your gifts, passions, places, and relationships aren't random; they're deliberate and meaningful Speaks the truth about 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.

?Que pasaria si le dijeras a Dios que estas dispuesto a hacer cualquier cosa... y El te tomara la palabra? En Lo que me pidas, la maestra de la Biblia, Jennie Allen, aborda las preguntas que enfrentamos mientras entregamos nuestra vida a un Dios viviente, impredecible e invisible. Ella le muestra a los lectores cuales son los enemigos de la entrega, llevandolos a enfrentar los campos minados del escepticismo, el derecho, el control y el temor. Con una voz fresca y una vulnerabilidad intrepida, Jennie nos ayuda a deshacernos de nuestra reducida vision de Dios al compartir su propia historia de lucha frente a la entrega. Jennie dice: Cuando pides cualquier cosa en oracion, significa que le estas entregando todo a Dios. Y aunque esta entrega implica la muerte de muchas pequenas cosas, es a traves de ello que Dios empieza a desenredar el alma y a liberarnos hacia la vida y la relacion para la que fuimos creados .
Do you feel stuck? So many of us live stuck. Stuck in trying to seem perfect. Stuck in sadness. Stuck feeling numb. Stuck pursuing more stuff to make us happy. Stuck in something we can't even name. These stuck places often go unattended inside of us and they are shaping our lives more than we would like to think. In Stuck, Bible teacher Jennie Allen shows us where we are stuck and why: We are stuck in anger because we aren't trusting God to defend us. We are stuck in discontentment because we are looking to the wrong things for fulfillment. We are stuck in worry because we have made something other than God our idol. We are stuck doing too much because we don't know our real purpose. We are stuck in sadness because we have wrong expectations. Through deep Bible study and practical exercises, Jennie shows us how we've been trying to fix this stuck feeling with everything but God. He has a plan for these spaces inside of us, the places we feel broken, but we have to go to Him. Stuck is a journey to take an honest look at the fight going on inside, leading us to the God who has a plan to restore us. Our stuck places are the very places that make us ache for God, and we find Him waiting there for us with hope and freedom. Sessions include: stuck broken mad discontent scared overwhelmed sad unstuck Designed for use with the Stuck Video Study (9780849922541), sold separately.
