Stuck: the places we get stuck and the God who sets us free (DVD Study by Jennie Allen)
We are often so stuck in invisible struggles in our hearts and minds, we barely have space for God. These deep struggles, these stuck places, are familiar to every one of us: brokenness, anger, discontentment, fear, and sadness. Stuck takes on these struggles within us so that we can encounter God. Because until we recognize that we are stuck and in need of God, we will miss what He has for us.
Jennie Allen’s Bible studies are designed to draw women close to God and to each other. These shorter studies dig deep quickly, creating experiential conversations and allowing women to wrestle with Scripture in a deep and authentic way throughout the week.

This was a fantastic study for my ladies’ group right now. Almost all of us struggle with being totally open with each other, even though we’ve been meeting together for a couple of years now.
I love how the Stuck DVD Study is flexible in how long each session can take. You can make this study work for your group whether you meet for only an hour at a time or for a few hours. I really liked the conversation cards included with the study. These are a big help when group members might be hesitant about where to start the discussion.
We did find the layout a little bit confusing at first, but I think that’s because we didn’t have an appointed leader in our group to oversee the study; we ran through it blind as we went. Once we got used to the format it ran much more smoothly.
This study touches on struggles that I think most women encounter but aren’t really talked about a lot in fear that we will appear weak. Overall, I would recommend this study for women’s small groups.
