Jennie Allen, Austin-based founder and visionary for the fast-growing international women’s conference IF: Gathering, is launching her new book Nothing to Prove: Why We Can Stop Trying So Hard (WaterBrook, Jan. 31, 2017) with a special Facebook Live event and booksigning on Tuesday, January 31 at 7:00 pm at the Lifeway Christian Store on 10515 N Mopac Expy, Austin, TX.
Lifeway invites Austin readers to celebrate with Allen the release of her new book, Nothing to Prove, by joining an in-store Facebook event and connecting with thousands of women online around the country. It is an opportunity to be among the first readers in the country to hear Allen speak about Nothing to Prove and join her for the conversation.
In Nothing to Prove, Allen, an entrepreneur, ministry leader, in-demand speaker, teacher, wife and mother of four, is bringing her signature raw honesty, transparency and wisdom to help women address their fears, fight feelings of being overwhelmed and inadequacy and stop walking through life numb to real emotions and real feelings.
“You may be a pleaser or achiever, or maybe you are a rebel,” writes Allen. “But you and I both have the same needs: to be deeply known and unconditionally loved. Which means that, no matter how you express it, you, too, crave acceptance. Eventually we all get tired of our chronic thirst, and it feels simpler to check out than to face it.”
Allen is a staunch believer in the power of just one life beautifully lived – and she is determined to pass her belief on to women everywhere. With her own purpose to disciple a generation, she officially launched IF: Gathering, an innovative forum for women, in 2014. The event has since become one of the fastest growing conferences and movements in the world, empowering participants across continents and denominations to live honestly and deeply. The next IF: Gathering event on Feb. 3-4, will webcast live from Austin to thousands of locations worldwide with an anticipated viewership exceeding one million.
