If you have been a Christian for any length of time, you have probably experienced a "dry season." You know, that time where you just don't feel God as you once did. That time when prayer seems a little harder and Bible reading feels more like a task than a delight.

Allison Allen, like many of us, knows this dry, desert season well. While she knows it well, she is, by her own admission, a desert hater. She says, "I'd rather climb Everest ice with Jesus than sit with Him in the Negev sand. I'm not going willingly."

In her new book Thirsty for More, Allison says, "The desert precedes destiny. If the desert of preparation was deemed necessary for the Author and Finisher of our faith, then, I believe, it will be deemed necessary for us. I've meet women who automatically assumed they were in a desert season due to sin or rebellion, and while that can be the case (the Bible says that the rebellious dwell in a dry and weary land), it is very often not the case. Often, the desert is not about misdeed but about maturity."

The desert season is a season where the Father draws us close, often it just takes us time to realize that. Allison says, "Jesus uses the desert to reveal the heart. Jesus uses the desert to restore the heart. Jesus uses the desert to release the heart. Quite often, the desert is all about the heart."

In Thirsty for More Allison shares personal stories and Biblical truths to help you appreciate the dry season as well as find the lessons and blessings as you walk through the desert.

If you are going through a desert now, Thirsty for More is a must read. If you are not in a desert now, Thirsty for More is still a must read as it will help prepare you for that next desert as well as help you know how to encourage others in the desert. Pick up your copy below.
