Does life have you on an emotional roller coaster? Up one day and down the next? If so, what are you telling yourself and why? Your thoughts not only control how you feel but also how you behave, which ultimately leads to the overall direction of your life. For example, if your self-talk is negative, you could be experiencing low self-worth, lack a sense of purpose, confusion, hopelessness, fear and so on.
Sally H. Hall is no stranger to the battle of self-talk. She's allowed her emotions to dictate her thoughts, decisions, and the direction of her life because the emotional characters in her head were always there talking, pushing, directing, and reminding. Often, her self-talk propelled her forward, and even more often held her back, down, and beat her up! Frightening is the fact that so much of what she told herself and believed over the years was wrong.
It's for this reason that Sally gets gut-level honest with you and will be sharing some of the most painful and damaging self-talk that invaded her thoughts for years. It's also why she shares how she learned to evaluate and change her self-talk. This 8-week, Bible-based, self-help workbook is designed to help you:
- Examine your self-talk,
- Discover why you tell yourself what you do, and
- Determine if what you are telling yourself is the truth.
Using a workbook format, Self-Talk can help you look for answers to questions you might never have dared to ask. As you reach definitive conclusions, you'll develop and test your reasoning and decision-making skills and find the tools you'll need to mentally manage the emotional ups, downs, twists, and turns of life.
If you are wondering how to make it in this crazy world, Self-Talk is for you. With media clips, personal illustrations and simple Biblical truths, Sally Hall will lead you step-by-step toward an understanding of why you struggle with your relationship to yourself, the world, and God. She will show you where to look for answers to questions you've never dared to ask; and in the process, you will discover insights that will bring sanity to your life. You will love this self-help Bible study for changing the way you think through changing your all-important Self-Talk. Jan Silvious, Author, Speaker, Life Coach, jansilvious.com
Sally Hall has taken the good news of Jesus Christ and applied it with laser-like focus to the conversations that are swirling in all of our minds. Self-Talk is Sally's own courageous journey with the God Who transforms hearts, held out as an encouragement for all of us to 'be transformed by the renewing of our minds'. While many authors aim at this, Sally connects us better than most to the rest of that verse: 'that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.' Romans 12:2. May God use this book to set many people free from the shackles of deception and into the amazing freedom that Jesus Christ gives! - Tim Ackley, MA Counseling, Ordained Minister, Lead Pastor Cornerstone Church, cefetoday.com
Words - You simply cannot get away from the words you speak to yourself and others or the words others speak to you and about you. But, what you can do, is become more aware of the impact your words have. This is exactly what Sally Hall will help you recognize and understand as you unpack her recent book, Self Talk. Through Sally's personal journey, scripture, and practical application, you will discover the truth about who you are and where your identity lies. You will embrace your God-given worth, learning to positively and powerfully walk it out to a watching world. Self-Talk will transform your body, mind, soul, and spirit by replacing lies you may believe with straight up truth! -Jessie Seneca, Author, Speaker & Leadership Trainer. moreofhimministries.org
I have the privilege of working with many authors and a voracious appetite for reading in general but this can sometimes leave me with a supercritical spirit! I was so pleasantly surprised and excited when I read Self-Talk. It hit the "nail on the head" with its insight and understanding. Sally Hall has done a wonderful job of laying out strong truths about how we should view ourselves and where we often go wrong. I found myself almost giggling out loud at some of her examples and then feeling deeply convicted at the next. In the end, I was left with one permeating thought: "I wish I had read this when I was in my 20's!" This is a must-read for all of us because no one totally escapes the negative self-talk that is so easy to listen to in today's world.- Sandy Ellingson, Executive Strategist, servestudios.com
About the Author
Much like a roller coaster, my life has been a wild ride of ups, downs, twists, and turns. Negative words, shattered dreams, acts of rejection, betrayal, failures as well as broken and lost relationships-all of it, has shaped my thinking and trained my mind. The wild ride has brought me joy, messed me up and taken me higher and lower than I ever imagined. Can you relate? Whether riding up or down, my self-talk became what I believed about myself, others, my life, and the world in general. My basis for making decisions was whatever felt right, was comfortable or made me happy. Of course, whatever felt right, was comfortable or made me happy could change from day today! Honestly, my wild ride in this crazy world was like being on the biggest, most scary roller coaster ride in the dark with no strong bar to grip! It wasn't until I was in her 40's that I discovered God in His Word had much to say about this world in which we live, the people in it and why the ride is so wild. When I finally got my grip on the strong bar of God's Word, my first thoughts were "Had I only known sooner!" and "Why didn't someone tell me? Whether serving in ministry leadership positions, writing Bible studies or speaking at numerous retreats, seminars or conferences, my driving passion, heart's desire, and life's mission is to help others discover and embrace God's Word as absolute truth-sooner rather than later! Because I know what it's like to have a messed-up thought life, and no idea how to make things better, my heart aches for people to understand the Bible is our manual for life that's meant to be explored, enjoyed, treasured, and lived out!
