a narrative flowing through your mind about who you are and what you’re worth.
Some of it – perhaps a lot if it – is critical.
we’re our own worst enemy. We have habits, behaviors, and emotional triggers
that we wish could be different. But they’ve been part of our lives for so long

want to equip you to fight that battle well on our Focus on the Family Broadcast “Winning Your Inner Battles.” Joining us is pastor Levi Lusko, who says battles

high ground of your life is your mind. What do you allow into it? In 2 Corinthians 10:5, Paul encourages us to “take every thought captive to obey Christ.” On
the broadcast, we’ll talk about how to replace thoughts of worry, fear, and
distrust with hope, faith, and trust in God’s love.
the end of the program, you’ll learn how to fire yourself as your own worst critic
and rehire yourself as a coach. Coaches don’t belittle you and walk away. They
are invested in you. They call out your errors, but they also come alongside

Lusko is the pastor of Fresh Life Church, a multi-site ministry with locations
in Montana, Utah, Wyoming, and Oregon. He’s written a book called I Declare
War: Four Keys to Winning the Battle with Yourself. We’d like to send you a copy as our way of saying
thank you when you make a monthly pledge of any amount. If you can’t make a
monthly commitment, please get in touch anyway. We’ll still offer you the book
for a one-time gift of any amount. For more information,
