“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.

I stumbled upon Jennie Allen and her books, so decided to order them all - LOL - I am an overachiever at times but wanted a full meal experience and to be exposed to her different writings!
I am blown away and somewhat crazy enough to be reading all of the books I bought by her on here, simultaneously but I love how she is brutally honest and yet gentle and kind!
Absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE her personal stories and side notes and how she is not afraid to be vulnerable and transparent to her audience! Change can occur in an instant from a lifetime of toxic thoughts and it is possible to be free from ones self and the merry-go-round of obsessive thinking and the internal dialogue that is on permanent repeat!
Love how Jennie states that, "this is going to take work, patience, and buckets of grace for ourselves" (paraphrasing)!
Transformation full speed ahead!
I have been waiting a long time for a book that addresses my own obsessive thinking and the non stop repeat button in my head on this endless merry-go-round of internal dialogue! This book and words of wisdom and experience from Jennie has opened a window of hope and possibility that has helped me to truly equip myself by being in God’s Word and by the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, thus taking every thought captive! Great tools for my toolbox!
If I could give 10 stars I would!
