Are you STUCK?
I’ve enjoyed the opp to review of Jennie Allen’s
beautifully packaged dvd based 8 week study
of the places we, as women, get stuck
& the God who sets us free...
The package includes the dvd with sessions being under 10 min
study notebook presenting the material for the theme of the week,
allowing for advance prep enabling in depth group interaction~
participants have 4 choices of projects directed at applying
the week’s scripture which provide additional discussion interest
of the project experiences.
An intriguing addition to the package
is the deck of cards.
Intended to ask questions for reflection on the week’s theme
of stuck, broken, mad, sad, discontent, scared, overwhelmed, unstuck,
and to initiate deeper conversation on one’s state of
growth or current area of being stuck.
Jennie’s underlying principle for STUCK ?
“I believe growing in our perspective of who God is
and what God has for us
changes the way we view our past hurts and current struggles.
Nothing is more powerful than God getting bigger in our lives.
God has the power to heal with a word.
My goal as you walk through STUCK is that God would get bigger for you,
and {as this occurs},
you would see a new way to do life,
lead by God’s Spirit.”
more resources are available from the online site
including bookmarks, posters, brochure inserts...
If you’re looking for a participatory product that meaningfully moves women
beyond a typical study group,
this just might be worth your second look !
Be Blessed in your journey to a Spirit led life...

“The vision is that we would see broken spots in our soul.” I received the leaders’ kit for this group Bible study program that contains a leader’s guide, a workbook, a DVD with eight video lessons, and a deck of conversation and scripture cards.

The Bible Study Meeting:
The leader is reminded to listen, not lecture, and not to counsel. The lessons, except lesson one, are to be completed at home before the meeting. To do the lessons properly I would say they would probably take 30-45 minutes at home to study and complete. The homework discussion at the meeting should last 20-30 minutes.

The DVD lessons are very nicely produced. The speaker is engaging and the backgrounds in the video are very nice. The video and teaching should last 10-40 minutes.

There is a deck of cards that contain questions used as conversation starters. The cards for that week are set out and each lady chooses her favorite one. The scripture card for the week is also placed out. The ground rules for the card session are:
1. Be concise
2. Keep sharing confidential
3. Rely on scripture for truth
4. No counseling

Meeting attendees are reminded of these rules at each meeting. The women are then asked to “share” their answers to the question they chose. This session should last 30-75 minutes. I chose three questions randomly as examples:
1. What do you love more than God?
2. What things in your life right now get you down?
3. How has your past contributed to your stuck places?

The material as a whole is very good and we all want to be able to say “It is well with my soul.” I would say that this Bible study would appeal to young women, immature Christians, and not-yet believers seeking God for their lives. Jennie talks quite a bit about her life and her children in the DVD lessons, and I think this age group would find it most engaging. It is very much a feelings based study, and some of the sharing the women are asked to participate in is very personal. The fact that the leader is to remind them at each meeting that the conversation is confidential means that it could be very damaging if that confidentiality isn’t held.

The print in both the leader’s book and the study guide is gray instead of black and is very difficult to read. While lovely to look at, it is very hard on the eyes. My hope is that in later printings the print will be darkened.

With only eight lessons, I think this is a good way for women who feel they are stuck in their spiritual lives and to receive a needed push to move forward. ( )

Book description
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. 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.

Study Kit Tools:

Study. The study guide uses projects, stories, and Bible study to engage the mind and heart. There are seven weeks of Bible study and an introductory session for your group.

See. Eight short but deep videos provide a starting place for meeting God and for transparent conversations. Each video is 8-12 minutes long.

Ask. Conversation cards offer questions for spontaneous and authentic discussion time. You choose the questions that speak to you.

Lead. The leader’s guide prepares you to lead this study and encourages you along the way.

Additional Stuck study guides can be purchased separately (ISBN: 9781418548742)
