Bestselling author and Bible teacher, Jennie Allen steps through the book of Philippians breaking down the simple, but difficult truth of allowing ourselves and our minds to be transformed in the name of Christ.
Sometimes we are content being good, and yet our insides are in complete disarray-but because no one knows it, we assume we are okay. This work we are going to do through our study of the book of Philippians might be the most important thing we've ever done. But we don't do it merely as another self-improvement project.
The Bible knows nothing of a connected regenerate person, filled with the Spirit, whose goal is to just survive.
Our faith journey here on Earth is not meant to be summed up to a behavior modification. Our journey should be a radical departure from the world and how it thinks. Our journey should represent a supernatural intervention remaking us into whom God built us to be.
We want to be women who set our minds on Christ, better yet realizing we have already been given the mind of Christ and therefore, we are deeply and intrinsically motivated and moved by an entirely different source. Not only do we make Jesus happy, but we find our complete happiness in Him. These are truths that if we could only believe, would change everything. It is possible to waste our lives because we never learn to take our thoughts captive.
This six-session Bible study dives head first into Paul's letter to the Philippians, imploring and encouraging them to become entirely new kinds of humans whose minds are set solely on Christ. Bestselling author and Bible teacher, Jennie Allen steps through the book of Philippians with purpose and intention, unpacking the simple, but difficult truth of allowing ourselves and our minds to be transformed in the name of Christ. Jennie confronts our current cultural struggles while relating valid and trusted answers in Scripture that inspire real change from the inside out.
Each session will include video teaching, group discussion, and personal study time of digging deeper, reflection, consideration, response, imagination, and Scripture memory.

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. The visionary behind the million-strong IF:Gathering, Jennie Allen, challenges you to exercise your God-given power to shift negative thinking patterns and take back control of your thoughts and emotions.

We can find freedom from the downward spiral by: Taking every thought captive to make it obedient to Christ Shifting the focus of our minds from our circumstances to God Fighting toxic thoughts with weapons of humility, silence, and delight Escaping our comfort zones with weapons of connection, intentionality and gratitude Learning to forget what's behind so we can move ahead Defeating anxiety with a mind like Christ's Tools included in the Kit: Study: The study guide uses projects, stories, and Bible study in the book of Philippians to engage the mind and heart.
