Do you feel stuck?
So many of us live stuck. Stuck in trying to seem perfect. Stuck in sadness. Stuck feeling numb. Stuck pursuing more stuff to make us happy. Stuck in something we can't even name. These stuck places often go unattended inside of us and they are shaping our lives more than we would like to think. We've been trying to fix this feeling with everything but...
God. He has a plan for these spaces inside of us, the places we feel broken, but we have to go to Him. Stuck is a journey to take an honest look at the fight going on inside, leading us to the God who has a plan to restore it, to restore us.
The eight lessons in this study guide are simple and interactive, offering projects, stories, and Bible study to dig into Scripture, to deeply engage the mind and heart. Because as we realize that our stuck places are the very places that make us ache for God, we find Him waiting there for us with hope and freedom.

So many women feel stuck in their roles in the world - mother, sister, worker, wife, girlfriend, chef, chauffeur, disciplinarian. So many things in our lives can conveniently make a good excuse for not taking a closer look at our spiritual lives, and to focus on God who can give us a whole new perspective on our lives. In a world that tells us to focus more on ourselves and what makes us feel good, God reminds us that a life not focused on Him and focused on satisfying our sinful, selfish desires leads to "stuck-ness"; a sense that our lives mean nothing, and life itself becomes dreary and humdrum as it churns along. Jennie Allen has written a very poignant study to help pull us out of our "stuck-ness" and into a closer relationship with God and in turn, a closer relationship with ourselves, our children and our husbands. Stuck Study is to the heart, very personal, well-written and articulated. Allen shares a bit of herself in each lesson to help illustrate her point and she pulls no punches about her failings and how the Lord has shown her these lessons that she's passing along to us. Each lesson has 4 focused projects which help us apply the spiritual lesson to our daily lives, and allows introspection and reflection on the lesson from the Scriptures. In general, I found this study to be challenging and I looked forward to reading the next lesson. My only negative comment would be the glossy pages. Gloss makes for good presentation, but pen ink smears on glossy surfaces and may not work as well for those who like to use pencil. I would highly recommend this study for individuals and for small and large groups. It is well worth the time and effort. There is simply no compromise for getting closer to God and examining our relationship with Him. The stronger our relationship with God, the more equipped we will be to be the wives, sisters, mothers, aunts, etc, that God has called us to be.
This was the most difficult Bible study I have ever participated it. I love the fluff studies. This is not that. If you are a Christian and seriously want to look at your relationship with Christ and what keeps you from total trust and total dependence on Him this is the study for you. I hated it at first. That was because I had to bare everything which is really hard. But everyone in my study 6 women had to do the same. We have all grown so close because of this study. I find that I think about it all the time. If you want to be brought into the place that strips you of everything but for the good...do this study. My pastors wife was part of our study and said, "Every week I feel like I'm being kicked in the stomach. But in a good way." Perfect description.
Great book ...really helped me get over some humps in my life
