Get Out of Your Head: Stopping the Spiral of Toxic Thoughts from IF: Gathering visionary and founder Jennie Allen, has surpassed more than 500,000 copies in sales and received the ECPA Gold Sales Achievement Award for a half-million in sales of all formats including print, digital and audio. Published in January 2020 by WaterBrook, a Random House imprint, Get Out of Your Head was an instant national bestseller and went on to spend 31 weeks on the New York Times Best Sellers List and became the top new title in the religion category for 2020.

Tina Constable, Executive Vice President, Christian Publishing/Forum at Random House, said, “No one could have predicted last year. We are honored that Get Out of Your Head was the right book at the right time and really met a need for readers. We consistently hear from readers about how much Jennie’s book has meant to them. In 2021, it is not slowing down as book clubs, Bible studies and women’s groups are coming together around Jennie’s teaching.”

Get Out of Your Head challenges readers to exercise their God-given power to shift negative thinking patterns and take back control of their thoughts and emotions. Blending biblical teaching with brain science and practical counseling, Allen directs readers to seven thought choices they can make to leave behind anxiety, worry, and doubt, and step into freedom.

“Learning to capture our thoughts matters,” writes Allen. “Because how we think shapes how we live…our thoughts dictate our beliefs, which dictate our actions, which form our habits, which compose the sum of our lives.”
