Pub Date 01 Oct 2019

I am reviewing a copy of Transforming Your Thought Life through Leafwood Publishers and Netgalley:

This book reminds us that Meditation is not foreign to Christianity.  We are reminded the importance of meditating on the kind of life God wants us to live.  It is pointed out too that Christian Meditation helps you to have answers prepared in advance for evangelistic opportunities.

We are reminded too that transformation is a fight.  The importance of meditating on God’s word is stressed.

The importance of meditating on God’s Word, and not allowing Anxious or Negative thoughts to take over.

We are encouraged too not to let thoughts of criticism of ourselves or others to take over our time of Meditation.  We are warned too about the difference between harmful criticism and constructive criticism.

Transforming Your Thought Life reminds us of  the importance of dealing with impure thoughts and part of that is to admit we all have them because we are human, and prone to sin.  We are encouraged too not to linger where we may find those impure thoughts.  Instead we are encouraged to pursue Holiness. 

I give Transforming Your Life five out of five stars! 

Happy Reading!

Indispensable For Focusing On Truth

     I am so excited about Transforming Your Thought Life: Christian Meditation In Focus, by Sarah Geringer. I've been looking for a resource to help me with managing my thought life in a Biblical way and applying Scripture. Transforming Your Thought Life is the book I have been looking for! 
     My thoughts run wild it seems, and trying to stay focused on what is helpful and positive is very challenging. Prone to worry- ing, fear, and other unhealthy thoughts, I can ruin my day before it even starts. I have wanted to keep my mind centered on Scripture and be able to do more than just memorize verses. I've struggled with finding a method I could stick with, forming a lifelong habit.
     Upon reading Transforming Your Thought Life, I found the resource that guides me toward healthy thoughts, with Scripture as my foundation. Sarah Geringer presents very practical ideas to meditate and focus on Scripture. She explains what Christian Meditation is; why it's so important for a healthy thought life; and how to apply Christian Meditation in practical ways every day. 
     Transforming Your Thought Life is my go-to, must-have resource for turning my thoughts toward what is true, to joy, to keeping a godly perspective throughout my day. I very highly recommend this indispensable book!

This was a wonderful book for Christians to understand the why and how of meditation. Sarah is genuine and addresses many potential benefits and roadblocks to Christian meditation.

This is a quick read about using bible verse to meditate and center your thoughts.  I have read a couple of books on controlling your negative thoughts and I liked the Christian perspective of this one.  I'm not sure that this is anything new but it was definitely a good reminder.

In her book Transforming Your Thought Life, Sarah Geringer provides an excellent guide for readers wanting to take captive their negative and overwhelming thoughts and make them obedient to Christ.  She shows readers how the art of biblical meditation on Scripture helps to refocus one's thoughts and turn them back to truth.  I found Geringer's book to be biblically sound and very practical, touching on a variety of subjects and giving readers practical tips and practices for developing new habits and patterns of thinking.  It's a very useful, very practical, very down-to-earth book that you'll refer to over and again in your own life and as you encourage and spur on others in their faith.

Note:  I received a copy of the book from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for this honest review. However, the opinions expressed are my own.
