Isn’t it time you said yes to God?
What’s holding you back? The risk? The unknown? The unwillingness to shake up the comfortable status quo? Whatever it is, if you’re not in God’s best place, you’re missing out on something great. The Lord is calling you into a Promised Land. But it’s going to take some faith steps to get there.
Jenn Hand wants you to be able to say to God, “My yes is on the table.” Not halfheartedly. Not half the time. Not halfway there. Jenn wants you to go all in with God—because God is all in for you.
My Yes Is on the Table takes you into the story of the Israelites as they journeyed out of the wilderness and into the Holy Land that God had granted them. Each chapter will challenge you to move from a fear stop to a faith step. And once you’ve started taking those steps with God, there’s no telling where you’ll end up.
For too long, you’ve been paralyzed by fear of the future. You feel God calling. You want to go forward with His plans. Yet fear has stopped you from taking the leap. No more! Instead of letting fear stop you short, let faith call you forward with newfound confidence and holy boldness. Put your “yes” on the table, and watch God do more in your life than you could have ever imagined.

What People are Saying About This
Praise for My Yes Is on the Table
“Jenn Hand is the encourager we all need, the friend we all want, and the wise (but still so fun) voice we long for on our journey with Jesus. Let her words come alongside you wherever you are today and help you step into more of God’s best for you!”—HOLLEY GERTH, bestselling author of The Powerful Purpose of Introverts: Why the World Needs You to Be You
“I just absolutely adore how honest Jenn is about all the reasons we don’t want to put our ‘Yes’ on the table: ‘What if God calls me to something too big?’ ‘What if God calls me to do something I’ll hate?’ But . . . ‘What if I put my yes on the table and it’s more than I could ever imagine?’ You, my friend, don’t want to live a half-life. And that is not God’s plan for your one, precious life. Let Jenn show you how to put that yes on the table.”—KATHI LIPP, bestselling author of The Husband Project and Clutter Free, coauthor of An Abundant Place, and founder of The Red House Writers
“Jenn Hand has long been someone I consider a favorite human, but now I see her as one of my new favorite authors. My Yes Is on the Table is encouraging. It’s spiritually deep. It’s practical. It’s well laid out and a beautiful mix of story and Bible. This book feels like a friend sitting across from you, helping you as you place your own yes on the table.”—SUZANNE ELLER, bestselling author, founder of TogetHER Ministries, and cohost of More Than Small Talk podcast

If these questions reflect what’s in your heart, I invite you totake an amazing, fun-filled, faith-shaking, life-transforming adventure with my friend Jenn Hand through her new book, My Yes Is on the Table. Through God’s Word and some amazing tales of her own, she’ll guide you step by step, story by story, to trust God with your yes, bringing famous friends like Moses and Joshua along on the journey. Don’t miss the more God has for you. Don’t give in to the fear that stops you. Instead, join Jenn and walk confidently and courageously into the yes God has for you. He’s waiting for you on the other side!”—WENDY BLIGHT, author; Proverbs 31 Ministries Biblical Content Specialist
“My only challenge in reading Jennifer Hand’s new book, My Yes Is on the Table, was pacing, because I definitely wanted to read it all in one sitting! Who doesn’t love adventure stories? Combine the courageous, often upside-down world of God using and guiding His people several millennia ago, with the spontaneous and joyful spirit of this trauma counselor, speaker, author, and cheerleader, and the result is wonder, wit, and great wisdom for your own life. Jennifer will not let you hold on to fear, regret, or excuses—she calls us all into the totally surrendered life of fully following Jesus and pouring into other hungry souls along the way. Her delightfully unique voice and laughter echoed as I thoroughly embraced my own best yes in response to her words. Read this book, and then tell me all the amazing things that you truly believe God can do. In you. Through you. All that is required is your own yes.”—LUCINDA SECREST MCDOWELL, author of Soul Strong and Life-Giving Choices
“Few books have transformed my life like My Yes Is on The Table. It has challenged me to trust God more, encouraged me to respond with quick obedience, and inspired me to believe in the power of the Spiritof God at work in my life. Fear was put in its proper place and replaced by faith. This message will unlock an adventure with God you cannot imagine is possible. An adventure where your heart cries ‘Yes’ even before you know the next step to take because you’ve grown to fully rest in His promises.”—DR. SAUNDRA DALTON-SMITH, physician, author, and host of I Choose My Best Life podcast
“Jennifer draws the curtain back on the puppet show that is fear—exposing the enemy’s attention-seeking scripts. My Yes Is on the Table cuts the strings on fear so that all of us can live a life full of God’s blessings.”—KAT ARMSTRONG, Bible teacher and author of No More Holding Back and The In-Between Place
“After doctors told me I would die if I didn’t quit drinking, I knelt by the couch I was living on and prayed to Jesus: ‘I have squandered everything You’ve given me, but whatever I have left . . . it’s Yours.’ It was that YES that radically changed my life. If ever you’ve wondered, Could God do something in and through my life? the answer in Christ is YES—and your YES is how God will move YOU into just that. God is always after His glory and our good—and He delights to accomplish His will through His people . . . but not all His people are willing. Jennifer Hand’s My Yes Is on the Table is the heart-changing, life-changing, and eternity-changing spark you need to give God permission to set your faith on fire.”—JOHN ELMORE, author of Freedom Starts Today and Teaching Pastor of Watermark Community Church in Dallas, TX
