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.

What we are witnessing right now is the decimation of the country and people of Afghanistan. The Taliban has a hit list of known Christians that they are targeting to hunt down and kill. But these believers are not hopeless... I've had 3 conversations this week with my friend Pastor X and his team that have changed my faith. History has shown that persecution grows the church and you guys.. these Jesus followers on the ground in Afghanistan are still on mission, hopeful, and willing to die for their faith.GIVE to Global Catalytic Ministries here:

I asked the Lord what He wanted me to listen to, and I was led to this. This was exactly what I needed to hear. Thank you so much Jennie and Nick!

Hi Jennie, I am a 19 years old. I want to say thank you for the work that you’re doing. As I listen to this, I am so in awe of our God and how He’s moving in one of the most dangerous countries in the world. I am going to commit to praying for our Afghan brothers and sisters every single day. God has awakened me. Thank you.

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!
