I can’t do this. She doesn’t like me. No one cares. It all seems hopeless. The wilderness of our minds and life experiences can rob us of peace, hope and joy. We have been conditioned by a broken world to think thoughts that are self-defeating. Overwhelmed by so many negative thoughts, it can be difficult to know how to think differently. Transformation occurs when we align our thoughts with God’s thoughts by tapping into the power of God’s Word, the Holy Spirit, and the mind of Christ. You are invited on a road trip to discover biblical keys and learn to navigate the ten negative mindsets with our roadmap, God’s Word. With God’s help, you can:
• Understand how your belief system has been formed and the impact on your emotions and behaviors.
• Reset your mindset using biblical principles.
• Overcome the head game that leaves you feeling defeated.
In this 12-week small group study guide, a companion to the award-winning book, Make Up Your Mind, Denise Pass guides you through a weekly five-day study, examining how negative mindsets operate in Scripture and how you can be set free from them. Leaders can use the provided guides and links to videos for small groups. In her Counselor’s Corner, Michelle Nietert guides you through weekly Scripture meditations, helping shape your mindset to move toward the lasting calm you crave.

Make Up Your Mind
Every day we fight battle after battle in our mind—many times unaware of the real fight at hand and wind up defeated, as if we cannot win the battle of our own mind. It’s our own mind, but we can struggle to make it up. Negative mindsets limit our existence by keeping us bound in habits and attitudes unless we know how to break free of them. Our mindsets matter. Sadly, when people operate their lives caving to unhealthy mindsets, they live defeated lives lacking joy and peace stemming from negative thought patterns.
Shame Off You
In a transparently honest style, Pass shares of her experience dealing with shame after learning that her former husband was a sexual offender. Having lived through the aftermath, she leads you into God’s Word where you will see for yourself that God is bigger than your pain, shame, mistakes, and limitations.
Hope. An anchor for the soul, yet often hooked on temporal things. Continually on a quest for this yearning within us, our souls hunger for the moment our hopes are realized. Explore the hope God has for you in this 31-Day devotional and find a new Hope Reinvented. God sees you and He has a hope for you that never fails.
Love and Cherished
So often, girls and women give in to the lies that how they look and how popular they are determines their worth. But as children of God, we can have the confidence that we are loved, protected, secure, whole, and valuable because God is our heavenly father.
Be careful how you think;
your life is shaped by your thoughts.
– Proverbs 4:23 (GNT)
