Would you like to go to an at-home renewing seminar? Or share one with your Bible study, Sunday school class, growth group, or women’s event at church? If so, I now have a renew your mind seminar available!
Renew Your Mind for Life Change is an interactive video with a worksheet you or your group can use to learn two valuable renewing tools: truth journaling and option charts.
Truth journaling is a practical application of 2 Corinthians 10:5 where we bring our thoughts captive to Christ. It’s a way to take off the lies we believe that keep us stuck and put on the truth that will set us free from things like procrastination, overthinking, bad habits, controlling sins, and negative emotions like worry, anger, and insecurity. As you take off lies that keep you stuck and put on truth that sets you free, you’ll notice your desires and emotions changing–and that will lead to transformation.
Option charts aren’t necessarily what you think they might be. They don’t explore all the options we consider when making a decision. Instead, they explore the options we’re currently taking to see how those options are affecting our lives. When we see the consequences of some of the things we naturally lean toward—complaining, dwelling on the negative, giving people the silent treatment, worrying, not taking action, obsessing, etc.—it gives us the desire and strength to change our behavior.
We’ll only cover two renewing tools in this seminar, but I hope it will help you jump-start a renewing habit. Romans 12:2 tells us we’re transformed by the renewing of the mind, and you’ll experience that as you go to God for help with life through renewing.
Whether you want to do the seminar on your own or share it with a group, all you need is a link to the video and the worksheets below. The leader’s guide provides info on how to make this a one-hour class or a two-hour class. You could also make it 30-45 minutes if you just present the truth journal portion of the video. I originally made this for a church in Oklahoma that used it during a women’s retreat on the renewing of the mind, but you could use it in any setting.
