In this twelve-lesson workbook, pastor and New York Times bestselling author Craig Groeschel pairs modern psychology and biblical teaching to reveal how to win the war in your mind and restore daily peace in your life. What you think shapes who you are. If your thoughts are out of control, your life will be as well. Both the Bible and modern science provide evidence that this is true. In recent years, a discipline of psychology called cognitive behavioral therapy has gained popularity. This discipline is rooted in an understanding that many problems--from eating disorders to relational challenges, addictions, and even some forms of depression--are rooted in negative patterns of thinking. Treating those problems begins with changing that thinking. This has many parallels with Scripture. In Paul's letter to the Philippians, he writes about turning our thoughts to certain types of things (truth, purity, loveliness...) and putting them into practice so that we experience God's peace. In this workbook, Craig goes deeper into the principles outlined in his book (sold separately) to reveal the strategies he has discovered that will change your mind and, by extension, your life for the long-term. Each lesson includes biblical exploration, reflection and application questions, and practical exercises to help you: Gain insight into how your brain works and how your thoughts affect your reality. Identify your destructive thought patterns and eliminate them from your life. Become a thought warrior and replace the enemy's lies with God's truth. God has something better for your life than your old ways of thinking. It's time to change your mind so God can change your life.
