Nothing To Prove by Jennie Allen

We live in a Pinterest-perfect world and strive to perfection every, single day thinking this will bring us the happiness we desperately chase. We feel that we need to make sure everyone else around us sees us in this one perfect light. This leads us to feeling overwhelmed and stressed out.

In Nothing to Prove: Why We Can Stop Trying So Hard by Jennie Allen she gives us permission to just stop. Stop being overwhelmed. Stop being stressed out. Stop working towards perfection. It's not necessary to live a full life.

This book is a very necessary drink of life-giving water for your longing soul. Allen gives you some wonderful nuggets of nourishment that call you into action, but not the type of action you are thinking. She calls you to throw off the idea that perfection is everything. To simply be you and to find that you alone are enough. You really don't have anything to prove to anyone.

Allen helps you examine your own life and to release all of the expectations you place upon yourself. She has some amazing reflection questions in this book that will get your on the right path to walk away from your idea that perfection is everything. Nothing to Prove is an encouragement to a longing soul. One that is thirsty for refreshment. The type of refreshment that only comes from Jesus.
