Nothing to Prove
About the Book:
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.

I’m really bad at trying to prove myself to others. To prove I am capable of leading, doing a good job, and the list can go on and on. One thing I have found that it makes me tired and upset but why do I keep doing these things. I was so happy to be able to read and review Jennie Allen’s new book Nothing to Prove: Why We Can Stop Trying So Hard. Jennie understands the struggle that we all face, that is why she wrote this book. She will teach us how 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, and make it our goal to know and love Jesus, then watch what He does in and through us.
We all struggle with this and its time to take a stand and open our lives up to the One who can help us, Jesus. My goal is to be more like Christ. I have nothing to prove to anyone but God! This is one book I will re-read over and over again. I highly recommend this book to anyone that is struggling with this topic. You will not be disappointed.
