Insightful & Practical | Nothing to Prove: Why We Can Stop Trying So Hard by Jennie Allen

ABOUT THE BOOK

No more pretending. No more performing. No more fighting to prove yourself. 

Are you trying your best to measure up—yet you still feel as if you’re losing ground?

You are not alone.

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.

* * * * * 

Discover the answer to your soul-deep thirst. 

Too many of us have bought into the lie that our cravings will be satisfied if we are enough and if we have enough. So we chase image, answers, things, and people—and we wonder all the while, Why am I still thirsty?

My single goal with this book is to lead your thirsty soul to the only source of lasting fulfillment: Jesus. He is the living water, a limitless supply that will not only quench your thirst but will fill you and then come pouring out of you into a thirsty world. 

Because of Him, you are loved. You are known. You can take a deep breath.

Because you have nothing to prove.

—Jennie

MY REVIEW

Jennie Allen’s newest book, Nothing to Prove: Why We Can Stop Trying So Hard delivers Christian readers the necessary reminder of God’s (more than) sufficient love. I know it’s so easy to fall into patterns of working and striving and desiring to be enough, yet Allen doesn’t hesitate to address the human impossibility of ever being that—but thankfully, God already and always is. There is life-giving freedom in her Scripture-based message, and as she breaks down this idea of nothing to prove, each chapter offers thought-provoking insight and practical application—worth pondering long after the reading of the last page. It’s a book worth reading and discussing, and I recommend it.
