Synced: Living Connected to the Heart of Jesus (New Hope, February 2016)

Prayer can become extraordinary when we live connected to the heart of Jesus.

Synced encourages you to emulate the way Jesus lived His life. With real-life stories of people walking closely with Jesus, finding themselves in the right place at the right time, readers are challenged to examine what staying in step with the Spirit looks like. National best-selling author and known prayer expert, Jennifer Kennedy Dean, uses the familiar passage of the Lord’s Prayer as anchor points to present the way Jesus lived His life in step with the Father through prayer.

Every moment is pregnant with purpose. Every moment is drenched in power. Prayer is no longer the means by which you attempt to get God to perform for you and becomes, instead, the means by which you connect with His heart and mind. A praying life is a life of peace and soul-rest. A praying life is lived in sync with the heart of Jesus.

    I did appreciate the somewhat unique twist of using the Lord’s Prayer to discuss how we can become synced with God, connected to the heart of Jesus. However, I found it a bit simplistic in parts. With the suggestion that if we could only be synced with God, blessings and ministry would just flow effortlessly, it smacked a bit of prosperity gospel to me at times.

    I definitely believe that God does miracles, and that sometimes heaven’s power reaches through our earthly circumstances at the exact time we need it. But it doesn’t always. Sometimes faithful believers lose their homes when the money doesn’t come in at the eleventh hour.

    I did, however, really enjoy her focus on obedience as well as her chapter on forgiveness, and found that particularly insightful.

    Synched was the first book by Jennifer Kennedy Dean that I have read, and I am very happy to have read it. She takes you through the Lord’s Prayer in a way that I have never experienced and it was very good! The book flowed nicely, and drew you in from the first pages. The book well well written and very well organized, and very easy to understand. The book is very heavy with scripture and the author’s interpretations are both inspiring and challenging. I very much enjoyed this book!

    I give this book a thumbs up and highly recommend it.

    Written by A Mom AfterGod’s Own Heart on April 24, 2016


    To live Synced you have to start with a foundation of obedience. And obedience works on a day-by-day schedule, you cannot be obedient on Monday and have that carry you for the week. In 1 Kings chapter 17 Elijah is commanded to go to a widow who will feed him daily. It turns out when he arrives that she only has food for that one day and then she and her son will starve. Elijah tells her to feed him with them and she does. From that day on they never run out of provision to eat but it is given to them daily. Ms. Dean looks at the Sermon of the Mount from the book of Matthew and all her chapters are built from its verses. The Sermon On The Mount was a model prayer and Ms. Dean uses it to show us how we can enter into closer fellowship with the Lord. I recommend this book highly.

    This book is all about living in sync with Jesus. She shows how when Jesus was here on earth in his physical body he was constantly living connected to his Father in heaven. We can learn from that and try to live synced to Jesus while we are here on this earth as well. One thing I loved is that she showed from the very beginning of the book some scripture that correlates how Jesus lived to how we can live. For example, in John 5:19 Jesus says that he can do nothing by himself (without the Father) and in John 15:5 Jesus says that apart from him we can do nothing. It makes so much sense. Most of the life of Jesus has prayer sprinkled throughout, since we are commanded to pray without ceasing. He would pray before eating, when he needed power, when he was feeling tempted.

    The book is written is easy to understand language and has biblical reference to further explain her points. This is a well written book that is essentially about prayer. Yes, it has it’s positives, but for some reason there were times I just couldn’t connect with it. I can’t really say why. My relationship with God is strengthen through prayer and reading his word in the Bible.

  • ‘SYNCED’

    I felt like this book was particularly fitting as I am celebrating the Easter season. This gem of a book is filled with such insight and wisdom. i love how the author bases the book on the Lord’s prayer and how relevant it is to our own lives. This book has a rich and deep basis in the scriptures and really focuses on the vast importance of pray both in our own lives and those around us. I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.

    I can’t recommend this highly enough!!

Dean’s passion for prayer and leading others to a strong and passionate prayer life shines through in all of her books. Synced is a great inspirational and encouraging book for personal use as well as an excellent resource for a small group study. It will make you want to read all of her books if you haven’t already.

    After reading Synced, you will desire more and more to have a deeper relationship with God.

    Are you living a synced life, connected to the heart of Jesus the same way He lived synced to the Father? Get ready to be challenged in Jennifer Kennedy Dean’s new book, Synced.

    In both premise and promise, Synced is flawed and simplistic. This book could be studied to some benefit for insights into the beauty of prayer, the faithfulness of God, and aspects of forgiveness, but constant care should be taken to compare the author’s notions with scripture.

    Synced is an excellent book that will deepen your understanding of the relationship Jesus had with His Father. Dean’s conversational writing style will draw readers in and make them eager to keep reading. The way Dean breaks down the Lord’s prayer makes each part of the prayer take on a new meaning, even if you have heard and recited the prayer thousands of times. Synced is a book every Christian should read.

  • ‘SYNCED’

    The author of this book wrote to encourage us to walk with Jesus being connected to the Father in our everyday life. Through out the book she reminds us, 5 “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. John 15:5 (NIV).

    Basically the author is teaching how to walk in the spirit using the Lord’s Prayer as outline to do so.

    She speaks of prayer as a way of life not just an occasional action. Living a life of forgiveness and living day by day are among other topics taught in this book.

    I liked that the author starts the book by showing how Christ lived a life in sync with God, and how He is to be our example. Jennifer goes on to use scriptures to back up her chapters and points. I like that she also had several Andrew Murray quotes through out the book.;) While I didn’t agree with everything in the book, over all it is easy to read and she had a lot of good points.

    Written by inkling and notions on March 23, 2016


    For me, this book was life changing. Not because it held some new concept or new direction but because it spoke to my heart and soul in ways that I needed.

    This book is deep yet so easy to read and understand. It made it so lovely to read because I wasn’t struggling to interpret what the author was trying to say. She spoke like a friend sitting across the table and that’s how the whole book felt. I highlighted extensively throughout so I could refer back to the passages that spoke so deeply to my heart.

    I highly recommend this book. It encourages, enlightens and comforts. I will definitely be keeping this book handy to keep my prayer life refreshed and for encouragement on those days when I need it. I give it 5 out of 5 stars

    Jennifer is a gifted teacher/communicator who is passionate about prayer, and she always makes me realize how much more I have to learn. Synced is a close examination of how the life that Jesus lived flowed out of the prayer that He prayed, and I came away looking at certain aspects of the Lord’s Prayer in a new way. Jennifer writes from the heart, conveying insights gained through years of personal experience, and her conversational style makes for easy following. I expect Synced to be life changing when I begin going through it in depth and I can tell that it will be a book I refer to often in the years ahead.

    Over-all, I felt synced provided me with the teaching and applications for living a life in unity and fellowship with God. I’ve read other books with a similar topic that delves deeper, but for an average student of the Bible, Synced is a solid choice.

    It’s all about the prayer. 1+1=1 is the equation for syncing up to the heart of Jesus. The reader is introduced to Jesus as son and Jesus as Rabbi to understand Kennedy Dean’s explanation of accepting Jesus as in you in prayer. I like how the book reiterates points already made before moving on and the anecdotes were true to life and relatable. The break down of the Lord’s Prayer was not too simplistic and proved ideal in showing the synchronization of Father to Son, Son to you– or 1+1=1. A slim but helpful book.

  • ‘SYNCED’

    As a believer, I truly feel many of us are not as “in tune” as we ought to be to the voice of God. This book challenges that – encouraging us to find ways to be in sync and tuned to the voice of our creator. Her teachings are not prosperity-gospel however, as she seeks to show how God can work when we are connected to Him, listening to His voice, and willing to go where He shows us.

    Today’s society is a synced society. We are constantly glued to our cell phones checking social media, texting, just in touch with everyone and everything going on. We sync our calendars among devices so that our schedule is already right there reminding us of the busyness of our daily lives. However, Jennifer Kennedy Dean reminds us in her latest book, Synced: Living Connected to the Heart of Jesus, something, someone and a relationship that is often overlooked in the busyness of our schedules and life.

    With the Christian world today currently in a season of lent, the glories of the Spring are right around the corner. While so many saints are awaiting the annual celebration of Christ’s rebirth, many in the kingdom of believers are facing a much different season, a time a great paradox. For so many in Christendom feel farther and farther away from their personal walks of faith. While many believe that the moment we receive Christ into our lives, we step into a lifetime journey—a journey where we continually grow in right behavior. But for millions of Christians being in sync with this journey seems far from reach.

    Written by The LadyPrefers2Save on March 17, 2016


    Various parts of this book ministered to my heart. My desire is definitely to live in sync with my Heavenly Father and Jesus my Savior. But at times it is difficult to see just how to get there. Jennifer does a wonderful job putting her thoughts into words and echoing the mind of Christ and how He lived in sync with His heavenly Father while in human form, feeling the same things we feel, yet totally submitted to God’s will for His life. Wow! That is exactly what I want my life to look like – like Jesus’.

    I felt like this book was written in a way that was easy to understand. In some places it may be a little repetitive, but still worth reading. It isn’t a read in one sitting type book, but more one you would read as a devotional or addition to daily Bible reading.

    …as I read this book, I continued to feel uneasy. I couldn’t put my finger on the problem, and wondered if I’ve just read too many books on the Lord’s Prayer. Perhaps. I have read many. Unfortunately, this book didn’t rise to any level of significance. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the book; it’s just tired. I didn’t see much that was new, much that rose to a level that made me want to share the book. To quote the book. To teach the book. And most of the book focused on “what” rather than “how.” I didn’t come away with an increased ability to sync to Jesus.

    Jennifer Kennedy Dean has offered a resource that beautifully makes the connection between Jesus’ power and His prayer life. Dean provides Scriptural support for the example we should follow in our own lives through obedience and faithful prayer. We often bemoan the lack of the power to effect change in our lives and in our world. Dean patiently helps her readers to understand how the power to live our lives in a fallen and sinful world is in direct proportion to the depth of our prayer life.

  • ‘SYNCED’

    This was the first book that I have read by Dean. It was some what interesting. Just a bit different then most books that I read.

    Synced is a book that takes a look at the relationship between Jesus and the Heavenly Father. Dean uses that example to draw a picture that describes what our relationship with the Heavenly Father should be. She uses plenty of scripture to make her point. It is also written in a way that is easy to follow. Whenever you use Jesus as the mold to model yourself after, you can’t go wrong.

    I gave this book 3.5 stars.
