Crashing the chatterbox = Overpowering lies of insecurity, fear, condemnation, and discouragement with the promises of God.
“I used to think that someone who struggled with the kinds of weaknesses I deal with daily was useless to God. I felt so often like I was drowning in internal dialogue I couldn’t control. It had been the soundtrack of my life for as long as I could remember.
Yet everything changed when I began to realize God has given us the ability to choose the dialogue we believe and respond to. And once we learn how, we can switch from lies to truth as deliberately as we can choose the Beatles over Miley Cyrus on satellite radio.
This is the key to pressing ahead and doing God’s will anyway, even as you are bombarded with thoughts, feelings, and even facts about why you can’t do it.

The Chatterbox Series has helped me more than I can say in deciphering God's voice from Satan's. I have now come to realize how much Satan dominates my thoughts and how I need to be still and silent and listen to hear God's voice. Please keep up the amazing work God has placed on your heart Stephen. Sincerely Dr. Cameron Campbell
honest, exceptional content. I think that many people deal with the chatterbox silently. furtic is open and it is refreshing to hear of someone else dealing with this common issue.
"You are an awesome pastor I wish I lived closer"
This is great information thank you so much for publishing the book please continue the great work for God
"Little voice in my mind be quite."
What a positive book to help build a person confidence up and keep the little voice of distractions and put down away. Love how if focus on the love that Christ Jesus has for each of us.
Easy to understand clear speaking voice.
It made me feel great and uplifted.
I thought with the overwhelmingly positive reviews, that this book would be amazing. However, the language was overly informal, strange (as if there was an inside joke that I was not getting), and it began assuming that I knew the life story of the author. Is this just a book form of his sermon series - meant for his congregation?
And the reading was robotic and unfriendly. I immediately did not enjoy listening to it.
"If you have ever struggled with insecurity this books for you!"
Loved this book has helped me to train myself to stop listening to all the negative talk in my head and to rely on what God says!
Steven Furtick's book, Crash the Chatterbox, has been an incredibly powerful book that has helped me though the year of 2015. It's been a difficult year for me (suffering with Anxiety and Depression through Bible College on the other side of the world without family by my side) but this book has been such an encouragement for me with such practical tools to over come the Chatterbox. I feel like a new person with a bigger fighting power within me to Crash the Chatterbox.
It was particularly awesome to listen to it on Audible as I'm not a quick reader so I was able to listen to Steven read the book to me which made his stories feel so much real.
I would highly recommend this book to everyone I know.
This book has opened up my eyes big time. I've been at war with myself for quite some time. At least that's what I used to think. This book has made me realize that it wasn't me. It was the chatter box who I've been at war with. There were times when I felt a swarm of negative thoughts such as worries, discouragement and imaginary scenarios of the future. I would almost feel like I was going insane. It would hit me repetitively and I no matter what positive affirmations I would quietly say to myself, it would not stop. My days would be dark even if the sun was full blast. But now I see! Steven has reminded me of the powerful tools God has given us to defeat the enemy and his methods of getting inside our minds. I know there will always be battles inside our little heads, but my arrows will be ready and aiming precisely. God is good!
"Great, practical, applicable and scriptural!"
Gets to the nub of our inner dialogues, how to deal with the noise effectively. Well written and easy to follow!
"Worth every minute"
Steven Furtick is spot on with this book. Our family has read and listened to Sun Stand Still and Greater. We are glad to have this book as an addition to our tool box. They have facilitated many discussions with our pre-teen and
i found this book useful and well presented. i will look for mpre from this author.
"Pick up your arrow and fire!"
Steven Furtick is probably one of the few pastors who bothers to narrate his own story. This is captivating and so much better than hearing a robotic generic American voice even for books of English author CS Lewis! This story will prepare you to fight when you feel like you've got no fight left. To squish the Devils lies and to untangle the ghastly thoughts of daily life and traumatic events. One to read and you won't be disappointed. Thank you Steven!
"simplifying The word of God so we can apply victor"
This book was amazing - it's so simple but powerful well worth a listen, some of the biblical principles are just so easy to apply- and narration is good - for anyone who has a struggle in the mind- with our thoughts this book is for you!
I'm glad that it's not just me that has these feelings. very honest open and helpful. no hiding of feelings in this life of a preacher
