such an inspiring book!

I've had this dream of flipping RV's for over a year and was too afraid to start doing it full time. so for the past year I've felt this push to just do it and so I read every book and every article from others who were doing the thing I wanted to do so badly. After listening to this book on my hour long drive to a job I really didn't want to be at I put in my 2 weeks and bought my first RV! I am so grateful to have found this book, it gave me the push I needed to jump in head first. Thank you Jennifer!

Confirmation & Gut Check Received

I'm completely amazed at how much I really needed this book. Recently I became aware of Jennifer in a challenge that I was participating in this year (January 2022). Her spirit was so familiar to me, so I searched out this book. Now I know why!!! God speaks to me through her in a way that ignites my soul to be encouraged and keep moving forward. I'm on a journey that God has called me to and I needed this book. Thank you for your obedience Jen!!❤ We are now BFFs in my head. Hope to meet you one day in person so I can give you a hug. I highly recommend this book.

All Glory to God

As a Christian, it was refreshing to hear this Christian perspective on conquering your fears through obedience to God and using our God given gifts to serve others. I believe He uses our messy lives for a purpose, and she elaborates on this fact. I'm thankful that He put it on my heart to select this audiobook and that Ms. Allwood used her gifts and discernment to share her thoughts, knowledge and experiences with others.

First 6 chapters are good then ...

... after this it is very much Jesus has a plan for you and quite nauseating. I persevered but could not listen to it any more. :-( Maybe I just need this book less than I thought as many people have found it good.

Challenge wrapped in love

Jennifer did a great job of writing a good book which was challenging the reader to do hard things, but that challenge was wrapped with a lot of love and grace. My only 'complaint' is that the author assumes everyone reading is married and/or has kids. As a single adult I felt quite excluded several times when there was no reference to someone not married ... only those married or in challenging mariages. And what about a woman with no children? There seemed to be an underlying assumption that the reader had children, which for someone who doesn't was hard to hear at times. Overall though a good book and I loved that she didn't shy away from her faith and stayed true to who she is.

Amazingly real and so funny

This book was recommended to me by a friend. I listened to it over a 3hr period. It was what I needed although I purchased it about 3 months ago, lol. .It is full of transparency, humor and the authors deep concern for her readers to  recognize the effects of fear to diminish our hopes and dreams. And forces us to live a lesser life. I would recommended it if you've ever had fear knocking at your door and trying to stay. Loved it!

Jennifer is real and inspiring

I loved this book. Jennifer is real about life and inspires me to stay off the sofa and get doing.

I will listen to this book multiple times I am sure. I'm not religious so the references to God weren't for me but I admire and respect Jennifer enough to acknowledge them and some even made me some and look up to heaven with my thanks and apprwtiation (just in case God was watching).

Fantastic

Great book full of testimonies, truths & so much encouragement! It was recommended to me and I definitely recommend it to everyone else. I found it useful slowing the speed of the narration slightly to aid soaking up everything in it. Thank you Jennifer, it's a really helpful book. Good job!

A book I will gift over and over and over again

I cannot truly describe what this book means to me. I have been seeking a real life Proverbs 31 woman to follow and finally found her. Jennifer speaks truth to what it is like to feel fear and push through it anyway knowing that God has got your back. She speaks to the fact that it is not only ok, but important, to be a woman who seeks to build a successful business and that for some women, it is their calling and their responsibility for their families. I know it is my calling and to have a guide on this journey is a real treasure. Thankful to Amy Porterfield for the tip to read the book! Thank you Jennifer for writing it.

Her message is lost in the need to constantly push God in your face.

The message in this book is served up with a big plate of religious talk which becomes too much to digest. I had to turn it off. She also calls other people’s spiritual beliefs dangerous!I don’t have an issue with her writing a book through the eyes of her religious beliefs BUT this should be mentioned in the promos so we have an informed choice to purchase or not. Won’t be finishing it and annoyed I wasted my money on it.
