Hi friends! Over on Instagram last week I asked if anyone would be interested in joining me as I read more faith-based books! A lot of you said yes! Our first book will be You Are the Girl for the Job by Jess Connolly. You can read more about the description and why I chose this one below!
How will this part of Tay’s Book Club work?”
Beyond this post, everything will take place over on Instagram. Send me a DM letting me know you want to be part of the chat and we’ll set two dates each month to discuss the book right on Instagram once everyone has a copy of the book!
Why I picked You Are the Girl for the Job for our first book:
I’ve been feeling overwhelmed and bogged down. Wondering why on earth I said yes to doing so many things right now (school, motherhood, homemaking, church assignments, writing) and wondering if I can actually do any of them well, even though I chose them or they sort of fell into my lap. Am I actually going to succeed?
Then I remembered that, yes, I can do these things but I can’t do it alone. I don’t do any of it alone. I’ve got great family members around me to support me, and I’ve also got God.
I picked You Are the Girl for the Job because I think we all need that reminder that whatever we’re doing right now, God is on our side and ready to lift us up and help us.

About You Are the Girl for the Job
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, bestselling 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 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 book 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 book be your jumpstart 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.
