DVD Review - Restless by Jennie Allen


In Restless, an 8-session, video-based small group Bible study, Bible study teacher and author Jennie Allen helps you discover a practical plan to identify the threads of your life and how to weave them together for God's glory and purposes.

Restless explores this important question: “Do I matter?” And Jennie asks, "We livewith lots of things, lots of people…but do we live for something?”

Using the story of Joseph, Jennie explains how his suffering, gifts, story, and relationships fit into the greater story of God-and how your story can do the same. She also introduces Threads – a tool to help you see your own personal story and to uncover and understand the raw materials God has given you to use for his glory and purpose.


I have done other Jennie Allen Bible studies and was always so blessed and learned so much so I was so excited when I was given the opportunity to review this DVD for her latest Bible study, "Restless". This was just as wonderful as her other studies and I came away understanding God's Word in a deeper way.

The thing I love about Jennie Allen is that she is so open and real. She doesn't hold herself up as someone to emulate, but always refers us to God. She shares her own struggles and it let's us know that we all have struggles of one kind or another.

This study really focuses on the story of Joseph. I just finished an intense study of Genesis, so I was very aware of the story of Joseph. However, Jennie brings things out from the story of Joseph that I had never thought of. I love how she shares and reminds us that God has a plan for our lives and that we need to trust Him. She shares that we can be restless when we aren't living our lives for God and trusting Him with our futures.

I love how Jennie Allen really shares her heart and her love for God. It's a wonderful DVD and, with the corresponding books, would make a wonderful study for your church or small group.  I highly recommend it!
