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.

Souch potential, but sadly missed the mark

I was underwhelmed. I wanted it to have more. I wanted to love it. For me, it would best be described as meh.

Her narration included varying tone and intensity consistent with an author's unique view of the text. I really enjoy when an author narrates their own book. Not this time. Unfortunately, she appeared to be whining more than I find appealing.

I found myself letting it play while I walked to other rooms and out of ear shot because I did not feel it was worth listening. There were small nuggets of goodness, but they were few and soarse. I came to a point where I felt content was included for the page count more than the quality.

I was hopeful, but disappointed. just because a person has a blog and creates a platform for themselves does not mean they are a gifted writer. The shoes on the cover are the best part of the book for me.

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!

Jess does it again!

Ever since I read Wild and Free in 2015, I have been hooked on the wonderful, heart + hard hitting encouraging spilling out of Jess Connelly’s mouth! I had to get this book and have been so encouraged by it, especially in this season of motherhood as a first time Mom. I have plastered ‘you’re the girl for the job’ all over my house on sticky notes. It’s been my mantra in 2019.

So empowering!

This book was so empowering and encouraging to me. Jess really has a gift for speaking and writing! I highly recommend getting the audio version of the book. To me, it just was so powerful to have someone speak into my life and get me on track the way Jess does with this book.

Everything I didn't know I needed

When I started this I didn't expect it to touch my soul the way it did!! it was everything I didn't know I needed to hear during a pretty difficult season of life. Now during the stressful times of this season I can breathe and know that I am the girl for the job/situation God has me in & only I can handle it with his help.

Perspective shift

This book was a definite perspective shift for me. It gave me the confidence that I am truly capable. I am the girl for the job. God has put me where I am, with what I have, at this point in time, for a purpose. It has also made me aware of other 'girls for the job' in everyday life and encourage them on a deeper level. Thanks for your words Jess Connolly!

Perfectly timely and Wonderfully encouraging!

I heard Jess on Annie F Downs’ podcast a couple weeks ago and decided to download her book. What I didn’t realize was how absolutely timely and relevant it would be for this exact moment of my life. Every girl, every woman, needs to hear the words on the pages of this book. Jess’s words come through and her passion is evident with every word she reads.
