Book Synopsis

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.

Just thought it talked about something different. It was a mostly religious book that talked about God in every aspect so if you’re not into that then I don’t recommend. It was well written but it just wasn’t what I was looking for in a self-help book

This book helped me get through grief. A time when I couldn’t even look at the Bible but this book helped to open my eyes again. I am able to apply everything it teaches, easy to understand and to follow. I know this book was God sent because there was a strong connection. Thank you Jennie Allen God bless you and may the Lord continue to use your book for his glory. Amen!

Didn’t realize it is so religious based. I thought it was just another self help/mental health book. I felt like half of the book I was just reading direct quotes from the Bible.

Loved this book! Very eye opening and inspiring. It’s so easy to become obsessed with our own thoughts. Whether good or bad. This book teaches you to lean into God and scripture and get out of your negative or obsessive thought patterns.

Helpful book for how to overcome various emotional struggles, like isolation, anxiety, a victimhood mindset. I enjoyed reading this book with a close friend and going through the discussion questions together. It’s been revolutionary for me throughout the pandemic and beyond.

Taylor P - 2 years ago, Verified purchaser
I looked this book up online but in the initial description, it was not made clear that this book is entirely about religion and the Bible. I was raised Christian but clearly that isn't helping me if I'm turning to books other than the Bible to help with my thoughts. This book is basically 200 pages telling you to go read the Bible.

first of all, i apologize if anyone gets offended—that is not my intention at all. i bought the book not realizing religion was involved. after i looked through it, i realized this may not be any help to me. i expected this book to provide some input on how to "stop toxic thoughts" but the author talks about how believing in god can help. don't get me wrong—i believe in god, but that belief does not help me physically... my insecurities, my anxiety, my physical concerns, the self blame. i'm glad this book can help certain people. but this book is not for me. we're all different and we all may find something more or less useful.

I’ve been in a season of heavy anxiety, and this book couldn’t have come at a better time. It’s been uplifting, a light in an otherwise foggy existence, and hope when I feel like I don’t know what I’m doing. It helps to know I’m not the only one stuck in the spiral, and each page you read will resonate with you, and show you that it is possible to break the cycle.

Wow, just wow. This book is honestly life changing. Jennie Allen said it best “get out of your head,” don’t let negative thoughts, emotions, and feelings fill your head and have control over you. Jennie authentically lays out how to use scripture and the truth to set yourself free! A must read for all ages and people!

I've struggled with negative thoughts that quickly send me down a rabbit hole and leave me feeling so down I can barely come up for air. This spiral often takes me to a dark place I'm never quite certain how to get out of. Due to this struggle, I've read so many books geared toward stopping the negative thoughts cycle and thinking positively, yet the cycle continued. Then I read Get Out of Your Head by Jennie Allen. She's been my favorite author for years and I've read nearly everything she's written but this was so different! Right from the start she's upfront about her own personal struggles and dark times. I instantly felt like I wasn't alone. She provides tools in these pages that don't just tell you how to think differently but explain why it's so hard and help you work through it to a place of true transformation. i never thought I could really gain control over my thoughts or implement these tools but I am! This book is nothing less than life changing and I personally think every single person young and old desperately needs this! I've been changed and I know others will be too! I'm even hosting my first ever book club, something I never thought I could do. This book draws on scripture to bring so much truth and light to something we all struggle with. I recommend reading as soon as possible and soaking it all in!

SAH - 4 years ago
This book is life changing! Jennie uses the word and practical tools to help filter through toxic and spiraling thoughts. I lived with anxiety symptoms for over 16 years, have studied the brain and brain patterns and thoughts. This is the first book that beautifully lays out tools to work through negative self talk, spiraling thoughts, chaotic thoughts. We all have way too many thoughts going round and round in our minds each day wether we realize it or not. Purchase this book and purchase some extra copies because you are going to want to give it to everyone you know!!
