Do you feel restless? What if this feeling wasn't a bad thing but a longing for God that could push you forward to lead the life for which you were designed? By looking at the life of Joseph you will see how his passions, relationships, and suffering fit into the greater story of God - and how the threads of your life can do the same. Jennie Allen walks you through a practical plan to identify these threads and how to weave them together for God's glory and purposes. Each of the eight sessions in this video-based small group study is approximately 20 minutes long. Included in the kit is a DVD, study guide, leader's guide, and conversation cards.

mom3waysGreenfield, INAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5You Were Made For MoreMay 8, 2014mom3waysGreenfield, INAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The first Jennie Allen book I read was "Anything". Then I found her blog. And now I am a big fan. Her newest book and accompanying study are a great resource if you are looking for a challenging study to lead. There are a total of eight sessions:
RESTLESS, GOD'S STORY, GIFTS, SUFFERING, PLACE, PEOPLE, PASSIONS, & MYSTERY
Each session is grounded in scripture. Some of it is written out and some of it must be looked up. Jennie has a way of speaking truth to anyone who is reading. Whether you are a new Christian, a Christ seeker, or have been a Christian for decades, you will glean truth from this study. A feeling of restless is defined as unquiet or uneasy in person, mind, or heart. I know there are many times I have felt restless when it comes to God and the work I feel I should be doing. Jennie helps break down these feelings and gives ways we can explore exactly what we were made for!

Cindy NavarroCullman, ALAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Weaving the threads of life into your dreamMarch 17, 2014Cindy NavarroCullman, ALAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This 8 part dvd curriculum, meant for small groups, is interactive for members to respond to each session. The topics bring a focus the unique threads in your life: the Gifts, Scars, Places, People, Passions that combine to make you the person you are and can be used to fulfill God's purpose in your life. A part that struck a nerve with me was when Jennie used the example, "Why would I teach a Bible Study when Beth Moore is in the world?" I know how quickly I back away from projects because there are so many who do it so much better. It is easy to be restless when you keep retreating to a place filled with fear and self-doubt. This isn't a study that goes deep into Scripture, but I feel that it is one that can be as beneficial to the mature believer as it can to those new or seeking faith. This is a study that can meet people where they are today.
I highly recommend this curriculum. Even if you have never led a study group before, there are clear instructions and suggestions on the best way to use your time. I also liked the discussion cards to be used; sometimes you need spark to ignite a conversation and these work great. Of course, when you are being transparent with others, there will need to be trust among the group. So, while it could be abridged to fit the needs of a larger group, but it is still suggested you break into more intimate groups for discussion. I liked it just as a personal study and plan to go back through it again without having to make the notes I needed as a reviewer. The kit comes with the dvd, the leader's guide, a participant's study guide and a discussion card set.
