AmyL4 Stars Out Of 5Get Out of Your HeadMarch 17, 2020AmyLQuality: 4Value: 3Meets Expectations: 4Circumstances often make us feel like we are out of control. And often, when life spirals out of control, our thoughts soon begin to follow. For me, when my thoughts get entangled, I often feel out of control and feel like I cannot get out of my head.
The constancy of this spiral has me researching and learning more about brain science. This effort to counteract the never-ending spiral has taught me much about how the brain works. Over the past few years, I've dug into books by neuroscientists Dr. Ski Chilton and Dr. Caroline Leaf. This year, Jennie Allen has added another voice to the conversation in her latest book, Get Out of Your Head.
While not a neuroscientist, it was easy to see in reading Get Out of Your Head that Allen had done a significant amount of research. Other books I read focus more on the scientific reasons why the brain functions the way it does. Here, Allen focuses on how to take thoughts captive. Allen relies on scripture to provide the backbone and lifeline for taking thoughts captive. Without the written word of God, there is no hope to take control of the spiraling thoughts in our heads.
Get Out of Your Head continues Allen's message of freedom that she preaches often. She reminds the reader that renewing the mind is possible. It's possible because God has told us that with His help, we have the power to renew our minds.
Allen breaks down the lies the enemy tries to throw at us and helps the reader rebuild the truth. As each lie is broken down, the reader is given tools and truth that will help take thoughts captive in order to take control of the mind.
Allen has written a very approachable book. Even if you think you're not struggling to take your thoughts captive, I recommend reading Get Out of Your Head. Allen gives such an approachable understanding of how thoughts get stuck in our minds. And tangible instructions for what to do to help change these thoughts to find freedom.
I found Get Out of Your Head to be a good read, but because I've read other books (all by neuroscientists) on this topic, I found the reading a bit light for me. However, if this is your introduction to how the brain functions, this would be a great start for you!
I received a copy of this book from the publisher. This review is my own, honest opinion.

This is an easy read. It is also a companion book to Jennie Allen's new Bible Study by the same name. I am looking forward to leading a group of ladies at church who have asked for something to help them with their thought lives, through this study. I can't say enough good things about this book.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Waterbrook Multnomah and NetGalley and was under no obligation to post a review. All opinions are my own.
