Jennie Allen: Trying Hard to Measure Up

Listen to this episode


Jennie Allen is the Founder of If:Gathering which reaches over a million people worldwide. She is an award- winning and bestselling author of Anything and Restless. In today’s episode, we talk about her latest book (releasing January 31), Nothing to Prove: Why We Can Stop Trying So Hard.


3 Big Takeaways:

  1. The motive behind your actions matters.
  2. People are craving for authentic, deep conversations.
  3. The more you are receptive to God’s grace and love; the more you are able to be more gracious and loving with those around you.

Some questions I ask:

  • How was the journey of writing Nothing to Prove different than those of your books?
  • Is there a difference between excellence and perfectionism?

Sneak Peak of More:

  • How “Big” and “Small” Can Both Be Good
  • Battling with an Eating Disorder
  • Leadership and Criticism
  • Being Receptive to God’s Unconditional Love
