Annotation:
Jennifer Rothschild wrote a book called Self Talk, Soul Talk: What to Say When You Talk to Yourself. A Bible study called “Me, Myself, and Lies” is based on her book. The topic? Our thoughts! I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but we tend to be very critical of ourselves. Have you ever called yourself stupid? Or looked in the mirror and thought you were ugly? Our thoughts can be so destructive!

This Bible study makes us aware of our negative thoughts but also provides tips for changing those thoughts into positive ones through prayer, accountability, and faith.

Do you ever find yourself caught in a negative thought cycle? What do you do to snap out of it? What do you do to prevent falling back into it?
