Thirsty For More ~ Review


When it comes to our connection with God, we dread "dry seasons," when we feel far from our life-sustaining Creator and redeemer. We want to dwell in lush valleys, not wander in trackless deserts. And yet, during the first three centuries of the church, many men and women purposefully moved into deserts to seek God. They understood something that we have missed: a desert is not a place of vast nothingness, but a place where we can truly experience God's provision, restoration, and intimacy.

Through Scripture and personal stories of her own times of waiting and struggle, Allison Allen offers a fresh perspective for women who dare to believe that God is doing something of eternal value in their dry seasons. She shows how God can use these times in our lives to reveal himself to us, to give us rest, to get our attention, to show us our strength, to experience his blessings, and more. Any woman who has been feeling spiritually sapped will welcome this refreshing message of hope.


WOW! Can I just say this book is absolutely DIVINE TIMING!!! Years ago, I went through the desert with the Lord. In sharing about those times w/others, whether counseling or just sharing my story w/friends, one thing I always said was, I would give up any and everything to go through that time. Of course I would say that! Why? Because I was on the other side of the desert!! Going through the desert as Allison so eloquently tells us is very difficult and not one we would typically "choose". 

Allison Allen shares the time in the desert so beautifully. From those in history who "sought it out" to modern day people like us who resist it and sometimes flat out go kicking and screaming. Regardless of how we go through the desert when we do get to the other side (and we do get there) we are all humbled, thankful, grateful, and so many many more words like that! 

Whether you are going through your own desert or in a dry spell I would encourage you to read this and even if your not, please know that someday... you will. We all do.
