If you are a fan of attending or watching the If:Gathering conferences, it’s all thanks to Jennie Allen! I have been a big fan of these conferences and was excited to see that she has released a new devotional book.
Thank you Thomas Nelson for sending me a copy in exchange for my honest review.
Synopsis from Goodreads: [This is] a forty-day journey for women to pursue God and find the deepest yearnings of their heart fulfilled. This step-by-step process, to fully surrender to God and then identify the threads of gifts, passions, places, relationships, and sufferings in your life, is not to get what you want but to find what God wants of you. The journal-like edition includes a new introduction and perspective from Jennie stories and testimonies from women whose lives have been changed by the process
and the workbook graphics to determine the individual threads and how to weave them together. Divided into forty days, Made for This will help readers not only follow their dreams but also be able to answer life’s ultimate question: Why am I here?
I’m using this resource through the season of lent as it’s made to be completed in a 40-day window. The devotions are short and sweet, but full of depth and questions that make you think. As a full-time working mother, I am always looking for devotions that will challenge me, but won’t take hours to complete. This one is perfect for me. I was a little nervous that it would be much like a “Search for Significance” book since I feel like there are a lot out there in this similar manner of theme, but this is unique in its own way. I highly recommend it.
