On this season of the podcast:

Are your thoughts holding you captive? Our minds are anxious, nervous, distracted. I know what it’s like to swirl in a spiral of destructive thoughts, but I also know that we don’t have to stay stuck in toxic thinking patterns any longer.

God built a way for us to escape our downward spirals. 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.

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.

Get ready… Season 3 of the Made for This Podcast is HERE! I wrote Get Out of Your Head because I was sick of the war in my own head and in so many of yours. I pray the whole of humanity reads this and fights back with the God-given weapons we already have. ⁣You are in charge of your thoughts, they are not in charge of you. Let’s fight back together.

Wow! Jill is amazing! There were alot of things she said that spoke to my mind heart and soul. The one that will always stick with me is "Courage is fear we prayed on". Im not a crier at all but by the end of the prayers I was balling. Thank you to both of you, Jennie for being Jill to me and Jill for saying what you did.

I'm super excited about this podcast!!! I found Jennie through the If: Gathering that I was invited to by a complete stranger who I was connected to through her mom randomly at a McDonald's playground. I love what Jennie is all about becausr her heart is one that seeks to follow Christ and that is what I want. I hope to one day meet her in person and dare I put it out there, be a speaker at one of her events!
