Vital Foundation for Girls 2012
Session 10 was “Self Talk/Inner Dialogue” by Dr. Evelyn Biles. The girls were guided to use the “T.R.U.T.H” Chart starting with the inner thoughts from a Trigger event leading to a negative Reaction, an Unhealthy feeling, then thinking about what the Truth was that would lead to a Healthy reaction. They had to make the choice to reframe their initial thoughts focusing on what the Truth was about the life event to train their minds to lead them to Healthy reactions. They were encouraged to learn to listen to Jesus, so that we can be more confident in handling life events (Isaiah 30 20a-21b). This reminded us that life is not without its challenges and God is sufficient for any difficulty that life brings our way (2 Corinthians 12:9).
