Publisher's Summary

You believe (or want to believe) God has called you and given you purpose, but where do you start? How do you get from feeling stuck to making a move? If this sounds familiar, best-selling author Jess Connolly has a message for you: You Are the Girl for the Job.

But this is not simply a peppy catchphrase. This is the straight-up truth God has proclaimed over your life from the beginning, and it's not dependent on what you can do or achieve but is based on his power, capacity, and character. 

It has taken one million, maybe one zillion (who knows?), slight moves of his hand to place you in this exact moment. So forget about fear and second-guessing your gifts, because God has meticulously prepared you to be an ambassador for the kingdom right where you are, here and now. Life is too short to get stuck in a holding pattern of shame, self-doubt, and comparison. So let this audiobook be your very good news: You don't have to wait for permission when you've already been commissioned. 

With passion and heart-pumping hope, Jess shows that being the girl for the job doesn't depend on your capacity. Rather, it has everything to do with God's capacity and our willingness. It has everything to do with believing we are who God says we are and quieting any inferior word spoken against us. Are you ready? 

Let this audiobook be your jump-start into confident, purposed living, as Jess walks you through the six steps she has used to coach and encourage women for years: Set your focus, take stock of the story that has shaped you, face your fear, catch the vision, make a plan, and finally, make your move - all in the bold belief that God has called you to every step of the journey.

So Powerful! My favorite book ever!

I listened to this book constantly & finished it in less than 3 days. I was sceptical about the audio book because I struggle to retain what I read but this was amazing. I listened as I cleaned, hung clothes on the line, laid in bed and even when I was in the car. I needed to hear so much of what she was saying! I'm going through a dark season & this book couldn't have come at a better time. My favorite bible verse is Deuteronomy 31:6 which I had shared with friends just days before & to my surprise she quoted that very verse in her book. I think God is trying to tell me something. Jess Connolly is coming to my church this weekend for our Women's Harvest Conference & I cannot wait to hear her speak. Thank you for helping me see that the "Ideal Miranda" isnt realistic. Even though I'm in a difficult season, this book taught me that, God has placed me where I'm at on purpose because I'm the girl for the job. I will learn to let go of trying to be perfect & do everything right because its Gods purpose and he is meant to do the heavy lifting.

A book for all the women in your life

This book is SOOOO good!! I feel like Jess could be one of my best friends talking to me with her willingness to be truthful and encouraging throughout this entire book. She points you right to the throne of Jesus! If you want inspiration in the slightest, then buckle your seatbelt and get ready. Pray and ready your heart to be loved by Jesus through these words and ready your heart for the action this will stir in you. Highly recommend you read and you buy a copy or ten for the women in your life.

A great book, not a great listen. read instead.

This book was solid in many ways. It's the pep talk we all need to face our fears and answer God's call. I really appreciate Jess's message that is so much more centered on God's ability than ours. She speaks to fears and gives good encouragement for naming God's call in our lives and taking the bold next step of faith.

Unfortunately, a few chapters in, her cadence, her tone turns preacher style and continues the rest of the book. Suddenly I felt much less like I was "reading" a book and felt like I was sitting in a full audience. There is an odd pause between words, a strange staccato, and sometimes she gets really fast almost out of breath. I just found myself only being able to take it in doses and wanting to get through it, rather than savor it. I would have appreciated a heartfelt reading more calmly. Let the material speak for itself, because the message is good.

I recommend this book highly if you are stuck in fear, wondering if you are the right person for your big dream or goals. It's a great book. However, if you can, READ it with your own eyes yourself. I would pass on the audible, or at least proceed with caution.

Great listen! Very inspiring!

I’m a wife, a mom, a graphic designer, and I manage an education non-profit. Before I got to this point, I was faced with many “career changes” in my life and for so long I doubted if I was in the place where God was calling me. Did I hear Him correctly? Should I be doing more? Should I stay right where I am at? All of these questions popped up many times over the years even multiple times a week. I was tired of chasing the calling rather than learning to embrace the season I was in. I was afraid of failure, rejection and false reputations. After reading “You are the Girl for the Job” I am awakened to embrace the current season I am in. I’m no longer afraid of rejection because rejection will inevitably come... but God’s opinion of me is the only thing that matters. Thank you Jess for your obedience in empowering other women to walk in their calling, rise against what others say, and live out a life God has laid before them.

Changing the culture for the Kingdom

Jess Connolly has a special anointing on her life and the way she rallies together women from all seasons of life to run hard after Jesus and to be real, honest and life-giving along the way! This book is going to help shape and change the culture and language of women in community! Not only does this book teach you according to God’s Word it also challenges you to step into and faithfully live out YOUR calling. I plan to give this book as a gift to many ladies running with me and behind me for years to come!
