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

CHRISTIAN BOOK AWARD FINALIST • NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY COSMOPOLITAN

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.
The visionary behind the million-strong IF:Gathering challenges Christian women to discover what it means to do life with God rather than always striving to impress him, in this trade paperback edition of her perspective-shifting work, which now includes bonus material to enhance your book club experience, including discussion questions and easy-to-create recipes.
 
All too many of us struggle under the weight of life, convinced we need to work harder to prove to ourselves, to others, and to God that we are good enough, smart enough, and spiritual enough to do the things we believe we should.
Author and Bible teacher Jennie Allen invites us into a different experience, one in which our souls overflow with contentment and joy. In Nothing to Prove she calls us to…

* Find freedom from self-induced pressure by admitting we’re not enough—but Jesus is. 
* Admit our greatest needs and watch them be filled by the only One who can meet them. 
* Make it our goal to know and love Jesus, then watch what He does in and through us.
 
As you wade into the refreshing truth of the more-than-enough life Jesus offers, you’ll experience the joyous freedom that comes to those who are determined to discover what God can do through a soul completely in love with Him.

Safe. Comfortable. Happy.

Words we all love. Feelings we want. Even crave. We may love God, but being that he's invisible, words like comfortable seem to feel better faster.

We are all chasing something. Our hearts were made to run hard and fast after things that move us. But as a generation we are all beginning to stir and wake up, identifying that these words don't satisfy for long, especially when compared to God. If God is real, and we are going to live with Him forever, shouldn't He be everything?

Caught in this familiar haze of worldly happiness and empty pursuits, Jennie Allen and her husband Zac prayed a courageous prayer of abandonment that took them on an adventure God had written for them.

"God, we will do anything. Anything,"

Anything is a prayer of surrender that will spark something. A prayer that will move us to stop chasing things that just make us feel happy and start living a life that matters. A life that is...

Surrendered. Reckless. Courageous.

If we truly know a God worth giving anything for, everything changes.

From Publisher's Weekly:
"Bible teacher Allen (creator of the new Stuck DVD Bible study) comes out of the gate strong, displaying accessibility and purposefulness in her first book. With an eye to the fears and doubts teeming beneath the surface for many female churchgoers, she compels her audience to figure out what’s stopping them from using their God-given talents, and to be willing to do anything that God asks of them. By giving readers a glimpse of her own introspection and the interior life she’s revealed on her personal blog, she employs heartfelt honesty to connect with readers. Tales of loved ones who have taken the “journey to total abandonment” show how giving one’s life over to a higher purpose can “wreck” comfortable lives—and allow people to seize more important opportunities. Though the book is aimed at women who must balance their calling against more practical tasks like finishing the laundry and shopping at Target, Allen’s friendly yet urgent messages will have the wheels spinning in the minds of all audiences and may be the tough medicine that propels them to action."

"Jennie Allen is a visionary, a girlfriend, and a Jesus-chaser. I can't think of three qualities I appreciate more in a woman. I loved this book from cover to cover and have been really contemplating the way a one-word prayer can affect one's heart and ministry in this life. I want to be an 'anything' kind of girl, and I appreciate and respect the example Jennie has set in pursuing God and what he desires in us. It's just a word on a paper, but it's a lifetime choice that can make all the difference. You in?"

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.

Then, during the group meetings, they share their insights from their personal study, watch a teaching video, then move into the ASK portion of the meeting using the Get Out of Your Head Conversation Cards to ask questions such as What keeps you from believing you can control your thought life?, or, What are you afraid of if you surrender your rights?

You don’t have anything to prove.

Too many of us walk through life feeling as if we don't measure up. We always seem to thirst for more. We think if we could only work harder or be better, we could be enough. But the truth is, we will never be enough. And thankfully, we don’t have to be.

In this 8-session study (DVD/digital downloads sold separately), Jennie Allen walks through key passages in the Gospel of John to demonstrate how only Jesus is enough. We don't have to prove anything because Jesus has already proven everything. Discover how our thirsty hearts can only be quenched by the living water.

  • Learn to take hold of what has already been given to you in Christ
  • Stop trying to prove yourself because Jesus has already proven everything

La visionaria detrás de IF: Gathering con un millón de personas, desafía a las mujeres cristianas a transformar su perspectiva y sus vidas al interrumpir sus pensamientos en espiral y darse cuenta de su poder dado por Dios para pensar de manera diferente.

La oradora y profesora de la Biblia Jennie Allen escucha todo el tiempo a mujeres que se sienten atrapadas en patrones de frustración y derrota. En su búsqueda de una solución, ha aprendido que la mayor batalla espiritual de nuestra generación se está llevando a cabo entre nuestros oídos. Cómo pensamos da forma a cómo vivimos. Por lo tanto, es crucial que aprendamos cómo detener nuestros pensamientos giratorios y rechazar ser víctimas de patrones de pensamiento tóxicos como la victimización, la ansiedad y la distracción. En este libro, Jennie se basa en la verdad bíblica y los descubrimientos recientes en neurociencia para mostrar exactamente cómo podemos luchar contra los enemigos de la mente con la verdad de quién es Dios y quién nos llama a ser.

¿Tus pensamientos te mantienen cautiva? Nunca voy a ser lo suficientemente bueno. Otras personas tienen mejores vidas que yo. Dios realmente no podría amarme. Jennie Allen sabe lo que es girar en una espiral de pensamientos destructivos, pero también sabe que no tenemos que quedarnos atrapadas en patrones de pensamiento tóxicos.

Como descubrió en su propia vida, Dios creó una forma para que podamos escapar de esa espiral descendente. La libertad llega cuando nos negamos a ser víctimas de nuestros pensamientos y nos damos cuenta de que ya hemos sido equipados con el poder de Dios para luchar y ganar la guerra para nuestras mentes.

En Controla tu mente, Jennie nos inspira y nos equipa para transformar nuestras emociones, nuestra perspectiva e incluso nuestras circunstancias al tomar el control de nuestros pensamientos. Nuestro enemigo está decidido a meterse en nuestras cabezas para hacernos sentir impotentes, abrumadas e incapaces de hacer una diferencia para el reino de Dios. Pero cuando sometemos nuestras mentes a Cristo, las promesas y la bondad de Dios inundan nuestras vidas de manera notable.

Comienza en tu mente. Y a partir de ahí, las posibilidades son infinitas.
