04 Terese Talk: Jennie Allen

You’ve likely heard this scripture: “Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;” It’s from 2 Corinthians 10:5. But do you know how to do that? Jennie Allen is a Christian teacher and author who has written a book called “Get Out of Your Head.” It’s designed to help you identify your thoughts and line them up with God’s way of living. *Please note: since this publication of this podcast, Jennie’s event in Rochester, NY as been postponed due to the COVID-19 outbreak.*
