NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • You can choose hope in the midst of chaos. The visionary behind the million-strong IF:Gathering challenges you to exercise your God-given power to shift negative thinking patterns and take back control of your thoughts and emotions.
“A must-have resource for anyone looking to get control of their thoughts.”—Lysa TerKeurst, #1 New York Times bestselling author and president of Proverbs 31 Ministries
Are your thoughts holding you captive? I’ll never be good enough. Other people have better lives than I do. God couldn’t really love me. Jennie Allen knows what it’s like to swirl in a spiral of destructive thoughts, but she also knows we don’t have to stay stuck in toxic thinking patterns.
As she discovered in her own life, God built a way for us to escape that downward spiral. Freedom comes when we refuse to be victims to our thoughts and realize we have already been equipped with power from God to fight and win the war for our minds.
In Get Out of Your Head, Jennie inspires and equips us to transform our emotions, our outlook, and even our circumstances by taking control of our thoughts. Our enemy is determined to get in our heads to make us feel helpless, overwhelmed, and incapable of making a difference for the kingdom of God. But when we submit our minds to Christ, the promises and goodness of God flood our lives in remarkable ways.
It starts in your head. And from there, the possibilities are endless.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
A major symptom of anxiety, spiraling thoughts are the endless cascade of worries that seem to feed off each other, making it impossible to feel at ease. In this Christian self-help audiobook, theologian Jennie Allen blends Biblical teachings with neuroscience and offers an approach to coping with this exhausting phenomenon. In a confident and cheerful voice, Allen explains the scientific reasons why fearful thoughts affect us the way they do, and even uses her own personal experiences as a Christian woman with anxiety to help us understand how common these feelings are. Her voice in our earbuds felt like our own Christian life coach, reminding us that no matter how panicked we feel, we’re never alone.
I only have watched the online video sessions and am glad that I found out this is a book too! Looking forward to it.
Too much religion, not enough advice
Let me sum this book up for you: trust God and you will be fine.
There was some good advice and tips, but it’s was overwhelmingly just preaching religion. Personally didn’t find it that helpful.
Smothered by god. Too preachy not enough self helping.
If you have any religious trauma, skip this book.
If you don’t like god being on your self help journey, don’t read this book.
Preachy to the point that it stressed me out more; afraid that satan was going to show up in my room for trying to better my mental health. Or I was going to be attacked while out running errands and listening to this book.
I’m sure there is some useful material that could have helped me, and I was really excited when I found this book in the self-help suggestions because the title literally said what I need help doing, and I’m not one to turn up my nose at a little bit of god in my advice but I just couldn’t get through this book.
I just want to work through my Postpartum anxiety and intrusive thoughts, not fight demons and advance the word of god.
