Are negative thought loops keeping you stuck? Knowing how to break the cycle is the key to getting unstuck and moving with momentum again.

Ever been stuck as the same negative thought plays on repeat — over and over — in your mind? Throughout the day it keeps on popping up and it’s the soundtrack to your sleep time, too. Maybe you even wake up to it and then you find it setting the cadence of your entire day . . . and mood.

Are you ready for some of that? If so, Grab your Bible, your journal and a pen, and . . . Let’s Go!
