I believe so many people feel like they are going through the motions of life rather than really living out each day with a passion and a purpose. Jennie Allen encourages and inspires you to find that purpose and pursue it. If you're not sure what that is, Restless even provides "worksheets" to help you determine the gifts God has given you.
I am glad I read Restless and would definitely encourage others to read it - especially other ladies in the same season of life as myself. I enjoyed Jennie's style of writing and could easily relate to her life as a wife and mom to young children. Although the worksheets weren't something I would typically do, I think other readers would appreciate how the activities can help them figure out their gifts and calling. The book did inspire and encourage me to continue to pursue what I feel God is calling me to do during this season of my life. One of my favorite themes of the book was how Jennie Allen challenges us to act now rather than wait for a more convenient season of life. I also like that Jennie recommended reading certain portions of the Bible and shared other scripture regularly throughout the book.
