Book Review: Nothing to Prove
TITLE: Nothing to Prove
Author: Jennie Allen
4 out of 5 stars
Jennie Allen, founder of IF: Gathering has done an excellent job writing the book Nothing to Prove: Why we Can Stop Trying so Hard.
This book has so many stories that draw you in and make you realize the point the author, Jennie is trying to make. In the first chapter, she tells story after story about how she is not enough.
I really like that the book has space for you to write down your thoughts about certain questions that the author asks. On page 34 a series of questions asks that help the reader take a deeper dive into what they are thinking about, and what they are struggling with. I think the questions help portray the point that the author is trying to make and benefits the reader by engaging them more.
Another thing I really enjoyed about this book is when the author took stories from the book of John (from the Bible) and wrote a story about what the disciple might have been thinking or feeling during that time and then relates it to real struggles that we (you and I) might be facing at this very moment!
No More Pretending.
No More Performing.
No More Fighting to Prove Yourself.
Are you tired, inside and out? Are you overwhelmed with choices and expectations and pressures, trying your best to measure up–yet you still feel as if you’re losing ground and missing out on the best parts of your life?
You are not alone.
