This book was such a blessing to read. I picked it up because a friend had sent it to me. At first, it seemed to speak to me through the struggles I had been facing on a mental level, through my thoughts. But as I read more and more of the book, it not only worked to refocus my thoughts, but my heart as well.

I think, no matter what issues you struggle with, whether it is circumstances in your life, thoughts, heartache, discipline in your bible reading, etc, this book would help with that. Not

I was asked to set aside some of my other planned books to read this right away. I have been struggling a lot lately with trusting God throughout all the issues in my life, but this book was a refreshing reminder of how much He cares for me. Each chapter is targeted to a specific issue as to why a person has trouble fully trusting God. The first chapter was on over-thinking and reading into people's words, which I tend to do a lot. This immediately let me know that this book was perfect for me. ...more

Once again Elizabeth George doesn't beat around the bush. I enjoyed the whole book, but the last half was especially revealing. It made me realize how much I need to accept God's ways without question. Focusing on God's Word and prayer are essential to knowing and loving God.

*A little KJV used; mostly other versions.

Maybe it was just me but this book seemed very repetitive.
The overall message was good and everything was quite scripture based but it felt like a broken record to the point where I skipped over big sections.
Still could be a good read though.

Fear, worry, anxiety, and depression are just a few of the emotions that are covered in this book. If you struggle with negative emotions in an shape or size that this is a must-read for you.

I really enjoy Elizabeth's tender, yet honest, approach to dealing with emotions and how to combat them by loving God with our minds and the practical application of doing so. She writes as if she were your friend and she writes from personal experience which makes this book all the more meaningful.

I was pleasantly surprised by this book! The Lord used this book to not only teach me and grow me, but while I read it, I found that people around me needed the same encouragement and wisdom that I was getting from the book. I was able to share truths with friends struggling around me! I will definitely keep this book around as a reference, resource, and reminder to love God with all my mind.
Loved this book! This was my first book to read by this author, suggested by a friend, and this one was just what I needed at this point in my life.

Mrs. George's writing style is simple, and the chapters are short enough that you can read an entire chapter easily for your devotional time. She shares a thought to take away with you and ponder on with each new chapter.

My two biggest lessons I gleaned from reading this book was to "think on what is true" - not to worry or fret or think on the

This is an AWESOME read! Elizabeth George takes six lifechanging verses from the bible and offers excellent insight to better understand their meaning, as well as, how we can begin to apply them in our everyday lives. I've read this book 3 times in the past 10 or so years, and each time the Lord has used it to strengthen my relationship with Him. If you want to dig deeper, I recommend that you purchase the growth and study guide that goes along with this book.

Recently, I led a women's bible

This book truly blessed me. At first, I did not think much in the book applied to me but I love Elizabeth George and decided to read it anyways. Maybe it would help me to help others. LOL Boy was I wrong, it truly helped me to live in each day, not tomorrow or in the future, and is a work in process. The lessons in this book are incredible and I do suggest the study guide. Through this guide, Elizabeth guided me through a spiritual growth that was life changing.

I first read this book at our Titus 2 Tuesday group for ladies at church. It really was a life changer! Elizabeth reminded me that how I think really does affect how I act. One of the most important things I learned was to think true thoughts (see Philippians 4:8). This book truly has helped to renew my mind. I've gone back and looked it over a few times since reading it.

This is a book to remind you to really trust god in all things,think on what is true and real,live one day at a time,navigate the maze of life.The part that stood out to me the most was how important it is to memorize bible verses. You need them to be in your head for when satan tries to attack, you can use them for your armor to fight back.

Recommends it for: all Christians
Great book that focuses on Phillipians 4:8: "Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirableif anything is excellent or praiseworthythink about such things."

It invites the reader to think on God's Truth about ourselves rather than what the world says or what we feel.

such a good, practical guide for those that want to take every thought captive. i love her emphasis on memorizing and reflecting on Scripture. though definitely dated and written for women, this was a very thought-provoking book. i would recommend it to any Christian that deals with anxiety and / or depression.

An easier read, broken into fairly short and manageable chapters. Would work as a devotional because of that, I think. It was good to be reminded to use God's word as the basis for thoughts, especially in relations with other people.

This is the second time I've read this book. It is life changing for me in getting me to think about things scripturally. It is a very encouraging and practical book, good balance of biblical truths with practical application.

A helpful tool for refocusing my own thoughts back on the truth about God. I found some of what George said helpful for talking to women struggling with depression or other harmful thought patterns. It focuses on Philippians 4:8 and other passages that help our mind think the Truth.

I read this book with my women's group and we all really liked it. The biggest lesson learned is how to train your brain to think on things that are true and realizing how much of our thought life is spent thinking about things that aren't true.

Elizabeth George is one of my favorites. She uses personal experience to make her point, giving her writing the feel of a friendly conversation. This is a book you can read any time you get off track to put yourself back in the correct prospective.

A reminder that what we think on must be truth, it is commanded in Philippians 4:8. Very practical truth that has transformed my thought process and several other women who have been reading this book with me.

As a pastor I use this book in counselling - it is a must a read book that helps people deal with life and God's sovereignty through life. It is practical, repetitive but very helpful. A great women's study. Not perfect but very very helpful.
