Book Review: Anything by Jennie Allen

Anything

I received this book from the author/publisher for the purpose of this review. All comments and opinions are entirely my own.

The Synopsis: 

Safe. Comfortable. Happy.
Words we all love. Feelings we want. Even crave. We may love God, but being that he’s invisible, words like comfortableseem to feel better faster.

We are all chasing something. Our hearts were made to run hard and fast after things that move us. But as a generation we are all beginning to stir and wake up, identifying that these words don’t satisfy for long, especially when compared to God. If God is real, and we are going to live with Him forever, shouldn’t He be everything?

Caught in this familiar haze of worldly happiness and empty pursuits, Jennie Allen and her husband Zac prayed a courageous prayer of abandonment that took them on an adventure God had written for them.
“God, we will do anything. Anything
Anythingis a prayer of surrender that will spark something. A prayer that will move us to stop chasing things that just make us feel happy and start living a life that matters. A life that is…
Surrendered. Reckless. Courageous.
If we truly know a God worth giving anything for, everything changes.

My Review: 

Jennie Allen has a beautiful passion for God and I love how she makes herself transparent so that she can be relatable. But I believe that it’s her boldness in her calls to action that really caused me to love this book. As I read, I wanted to underline and highlight pretty much every other sentence! I mean it was that good! Her passion is evident and her faith is real. Jennie touches on several different topics but for the most part its on abandoning the ordinary to obtain the extraordinary. And the only way to do that is through prayer.

So, needless to say, I am rating this book 5 out of 5 stars and highly encourage you to pick up this book for a devotional, it will affect you!

Thanks for reading!
