Restless? Discover God’s Dream For You

Restless? Discover God’s Dream For You

Editor’s Note: Restless offers a practical plan to identify the threads of your life and how to intentionally weave them together for God’s glory and purposes. Through this book you will walk through the process of identifying and journaling about your raw materials — the unique threads — that you’ve been given by digging into five areas: 1) Gifts, 2) Suffering, 3) Places,

Restless: Because You Were Made For More

Do you feel restless? What if this feeling weren’t a bad thing? This feeling could be a longing, a restlessness for more of God. It could push us to move forward, to live epic lives that were designed before the foundations of earth were laid. But a lot of us, if we’re honest, are afraid. We

Restless: What Are You Passionate About?

William Wilberforce knew his passion. He resisted it, but this passion held him captive as a young man, nearly at the same time that he became completely captivated by Jesus. He met God and wanted nothing more than to begin vocational ministry; he was convinced this was the best way to serve God. But the

Restless: What Is Your Passion?

Threads of Passions William Wilberforce knew his passion. He resisted it, but this passion held him captive as a young man, nearly at the same time that he became completely captivated by Jesus. He met God and wanted nothing more than to begin vocational ministry; he was convinced this was the best way to serve God. But the passion that

Are You Restless? Discover God’s Dream For You

As I stared at the ceiling, I saw the scrape marks. Right after we had moved into our first house, Zac, my husband, scraped off the popcorn textured ceiling. You’d think that would be something you’d never really notice — the ceiling — but it was something I stared at every afternoon. I stared as my newborn son slept.

Friendship: Who Do You Need? Who Needs You?

Who Do You Need? We don’t just need people; we need the right people. Sometimes finding the right people takes discipline and effort. And then when we find them, we have to fight for them. We have to prioritize time and issue grace over and over, because even the best human on this earth will disappoint us. And when that happens, you

Restless Study Week 7 — When Passion Equals Pain

In our Restless study so far, we’ve looked at our restlessness, our discontentment. We’ve looked at God’s Story. Our gifts. Our suffering. The places in our lives. The people in our lives. This week we’re looking at our passions. As Jennie conveys in her teaching, in our culture, we’ve totally stripped that word passion of its

Restless Study Week 5 — It’s Not Our Places; It’s What We Do In Our Places

This week we’re studying Restless Chapter 4 — Places. Honest to goodness, I thought Phew! We’re through suffering! Didn’t you? But, like Joseph, sometimes our places are really hard places! Maybe the places God has you aren’t painful or challenging. Maybe you’re exactly where you want to be right now. That’s just gorgeous! But, there’s

Restless Study Week 2 — God’s Story

This week I had the privilege of being a part of something absolutely miraculous and gorgeous. Messy, painful, broken, agonizing, and so, so beautiful. Along the way, I discovered that you can actually grieve and giggle at the same time. An agnostic Muslim friend I’ve not seen in 26 years shared her heartbreak with me.

Restless Study Week 1 — What’s Holding You Back From Dreaming?
