Publisher's Description

No More Pretending. No More Performing. No More Fighting to Prove Yourself.
 
Are you tired, inside and out? Are you trying your best to measure up—yet you still feel as if you’re losing ground and missing out on the best parts of life?
 
You are not alone.
 
Jennie Allen understands the daily struggle so many of us face with inadequacy and insecurity and the fear that we are not enough. And she invites us into a different experience, one in which our souls overflow with contentment and joy. In Nothing to Prove she calls us to…

* Find freedom from self-induced pressure by admitting we’re not enough—but Jesus is.
* Stop doing things for God, and start doing things with Him.
* Admit our greatest needs and watch them be filled by the only One who can meet them.
* Discover how God moves wildly through those who have nothing to protect and nothing to prove.
* Make it our goal to know and love Jesus, then watch what He does in and through us.
 
As you wade into the refreshing truth of the more-than-enough life Jesus offers, you’ll experience the joyous freedom that comes to those who are determined to discover what God can do through a soul completely in love with Him.
 
 
Discover the answer to your soul-deep thirst
 
Too many of us have bought into the lie that our cravings will be satisfied if we are enough and if we have enough. So we chase image, answers, things, and people—and we wonder all the while, Why am I still thirsty?
 
My single goal with this book is to lead your thirsty soul to the only source of lasting fulfillment: Jesus. He is the living water, a limitless supply that will not only quench your thirst but will fill you and then come pouring out of you into a thirsty world.
 
Because of Him, you are loved. You are known. You can take a deep breath.
 
Because you have nothing to prove.
 
—Jennie

Endorsements

"All I know is that when I'm around Jennie, she makes me hungry to know God better. Her passion to be His above all others-at any cost-stirs something in my soul. Read Nothing to Prove and see if some of what she's learning at His feet doesn't spill over onto your yearning soul as well." - KAY WARREN, Bible teacher and author of Choose Joy

"Nothing to Prove takes us on a journey toward freedom from the need to measure up. With vulnerability and authenticity, Jennie Allen encourages us to wade deep into the streams of the Living Water and live secure in the knowledge that we have absolutely nothing to prove to God or to people." - MARK BATTERSON, lead pastor of National Community Church

"Way to go, Jennie! Loved this book! It's one thing to write well about the high concepts of faith or, alternatively, about the nitty gritty of real life. To write well about both grace and Netflix, both the sufficiency of Christ and also homework-that's very hard to do, and Jennie does it beautifully. I've watched her walk this path, and I've learned from her along the way. I'm so glad she's inviting us all into this important conversation." - SHAUNA NIEQUIST, author of Present Over Perfect

"Jennie Allen calls us to the best version of us-the version God intended. She calls us to rise above 'woe is me' and bring into focus 'God is great!' We love this glorious and universally resounding message. As a result of it, Jesus is being reflected and honored in new ways in and through this generation. Run, don't walk, to read Nothing to Prove." - LOUIE AND SHELLEY GIGLIO, cofounders of Passion Conferences and Passion City Church

"With honesty and raw passion, Jennie Allen invites us all to leave behind the proving and pretending that chokes the life out of us. There is more to life than this! Sharing the hard-won wisdom of her own journey, Jennie leads us to the foot of the Cross, where grace and mercy meet and we discover all over again that we have absolutely nothing to prove." - JO SAXTON, author, speaker, and board chair of 3DMovements

"In a time when rest is hard to come by, when our days are filled with the constant clamor to be more, do more, and have more, most people feel exhausted and overwhelmed. Jennie Allen shares from her heart, which is rooted in the Word of God, where true, deep soul rest is found. Using her own life as well as illustrations with which we can all relate, she faithfully proclaims that rest will only be found in Christ's finished work." - MATT CHANDLER, lead pastor of the Village Church, Dallas, and president of Acts 29

"Jennie is one of those rare people who holds a fiery and prophetic vision with such tenderness and grace. And because of that, hers is a voice I'm always reading and learning from. In this book she gets my nose in the Scriptures and my knees on the ground, and in my opinion a book that does that is as good as it gets." - JEFFERSON BETHKE, New York Times best-selling author of Jesus > Religion

"'If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink.’ Jesus shouted this to a crowd of confused, weak, spiritually thirsty people, tired from trying so hard to be enough and do enough-people like me and you and Jennie Allen. This honest, wonderful book is Jennie's humble shout that Jesus is telling the truth. It's her story of finding freedom and refreshment. And if we listen to her, it can be our story too." - JON BLOOM, cofounder of Desiring God and author of Not by Sight

—Ann Voskamp, author of The Broken Way

"We live in a world that tries to steal our worth and identity on a daily basis. It shifts our hearts away from God and onto our own shortcomings. I am so grateful that my friend Jennie Allen, in Nothing to Prove, gives us all a realignment with the truth of Scripture. This book will help you take your eyes off your problems and put them back on God’s promises."
