Thought-Provoking & Insightful | Thirsty for More: Discovering God's Unexpected Blessings in a Desert Season by Allison Allen


When it comes to our connection with God, we dread "dry seasons," when we feel far from our life-sustaining Creator and redeemer. We want to dwell in lush valleys, not wander in trackless deserts. And yet, during the first three centuries of the church, many men and women purposefully moved into deserts to seek God. They understood something that we have missed: a desert is not a place of vast nothingness, but a place where we can truly experience God's provision, restoration, and intimacy.

Through Scripture and personal stories of her own times of waiting and struggle, Allison Allen offers a fresh perspective for women who dare to believe that God is doing something of eternal value in their dry seasons. She shows how God can use these times in our lives to reveal himself to us, to give us rest, to get our attention, to show us our strength, to experience his blessings, and more. Any woman who has been feeling spiritually sapped will welcome this refreshing message of hope.

So often, “dry seasons”—a continued feeling of emptiness and distance from God—feel like a bad or punishing place to be. Yet, Allison Allen turns this idea on its head in Thirsty for More: Discovering God’s Unexpected Blessings in a Desert Season. How about, instead, we see the desert as a place of preparation, revelation, and so much more?

Thirsty for More delves into the blessings of a desert season with biblical truths, in addition to Allen’s personal experiences. She offers plenty of thought-provoking and insightful content that I’m sure will continue to stick with me for years to come.

Thanks to Revell Reads, I received a complimentary copy of Thirsty for More and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
