In Review

With everything happening in our world today, could there be a better book to help with toxic thoughts? This was a book I purchased myself before 2020 took an interesting turn. Jennie Allen is the founder of IF:Gathering and has written several books including Restless and Nothing to Prove. With Get Out Of Your Head, she has taken her own life experience and combined it with God’s truth in order to deliver a strategy to fight and win the war of toxic thinking.

*Side note: mental illness is REAL and this is not a replacement for medical assistance. She makes that clear in her book as well.*

With that being said, Get Out of Your Head focuses on how to break the downward spiral that our thoughts can take us on. It felt like I was sitting in a room with a friend who wasn’t afraid to speak the truth. Not just the truths of how to stop the toxic thoughts, but also the real life stories that you can relate to. I am not alone in this, others feel this way to. This book gives you tools that you can put into practice and they work! If you are looking for change and freedom from destructive thoughts, I promise you will find this book helpful and eye opening.
