Made for This: 40 Days to Living Your Purpose by Jennie Allen

I was gien a copy of this book to provide my honest feedback.




Recognize your calling, find your place of service, and follow God to a life of purpose.
In her bestselling books Anything and Restless, Jennie Allen challenged women to fully surrender their lives to God and then offered a process to uncover and understand the raw materials He had given them to use for His glory and purposes. Now, for the first time ever, those two concepts have been combined to create 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 have more devotionals then I care to admit.  I love each of them and they all offer something, but they are pretty much the same.  Small message and some scripture to back it up.  I adore Jennie Allen's work so when I saw Made For This 40 days to living your purpose I was excited.  I thought wow a devotional from a Christian voice I'm already familiar with.
  All I can say is WOW.  Jennie as always goes the extra step, not only do I have a small message and scripture but I also have space to respond a place were I am asked to go deeper.
Page one the very first line reads "I am not really good at anything."  A few lines down it says "I don't know if I have ever done anything truly important."  These are the thoughts of a woman named Sarah and how these thoughts plague her.  And I found myself saying "me too... Me too"  The entire book feel like this, it is all relatable!  I am a 31 year old mom with an 8 and 11 year old son and so many times when I was reading I was nodding with tears in my eyes saying "me too... Me too"   It really was an eye opener for me  I realized the lies I tell myself are lies many women tell themselves.
