I wanted to see what scripture had to say about this and how Jesus was the answer. So I set on this journey through Paul’s letter to the Philippian church.
It begins with the renewing of our minds. This isn’t a trick or life-hack but a rewiring of our brains. Scientific research is confirming what the bible has always told us: we can interrupt self-defeating spirals of thought and change our thinking. We can have the mind of Christ, like Paul encourages.
I wrote this six-session bible study to share the truth that you are not at the mercy of your thoughts and feelings. You can get free.
What does it look like to have the mind of Christ? To find our complete happiness in him? Join us on this study that includes video teaching, group discussion, and personal study that will inspire real change from the inside out and will help you choose to get out of your head and into the mind of Christ.

Stopping the spiral of toxic thoughts.
Are your thoughts holding you captive? Jennie Allen knows what it’s like to swirl in a spiral of destructive thoughts, such as I’ll never be good enough. Other people have better lives than I do. God couldn’t really love me. But Jennie 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, a six-session video-based Bible study, 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.
