Taking Every Thought Captive by Sunshyne Gray

“Take Every Thought Captive” is an online course providing a step by step guide to get rid of unwanted and problematic thoughts so you can reclaim the joy and peace God has in store for you right now! This course outlines everything you need to know in one place.

Do any of these sound familiar?

Feel as thought you can’t control your thoughts?
Dwelling on the past?
Self defeating thoughts?
Making negative assumptions about relationships?
Anxious and fearful thoughts?
Thinking events and conversations to death?


“Take Every Thought Captive” is a course that you will not find anywhere else!
In “Taking Every Thought Captive” you will have biblical strategies and research proven ways to change the way you think. I’ve been a licensed therapist for 15 years. In that time I have helped people identify and combat problematic thoughts that hold them back and cause distress. The strategies taught in this course are research proven and effective.

In “Taking Every Thought Captive”, this course is packed with information on how to identify and strategically change the way you think in 1 1/2 hours…no filler! This course is designed to give you the blueprint from beginning to end to start taking your thoughts captive now!

Sunshyne also offers Christian counseling sessions.

SoJo Academy

SoJo Academy

Does any of this sound familiar? You have a true desire to grow and just wish for simple, practical steps that can be easily implemented into your daily life. You get bored quickly or are easily distracted with your Bible Study… hello guilt… and feel bad about what you “should” be doing. Sigh. Having a ready-made plan to follow sure would help! You know you need community and accountability, but struggle to connect with women who are walking on a similar path towards Christlikeness. Sigh again. You’re spiritually stuck and are ready for God to break through in a fresh way and help you move beyond that invisible ceiling. 

If any of that sounds like you, you are NOT ALONE! We’ve all been there and we understand how difficult it can be to get good, solid guidance {not to mention practical!} in areas of spiritual maturity. That is where Sojo Academy will help. Head over to SoJo Academy to learn more. I hope to see you there!

Best Bible Study Reference Books and Bibles

NKJV Hebrew-Greek Key Word Study BibleThe Hebrew-Greek Key Word Study Bible identifies key words of the original languages with clear explanations of their meanings and usage. This Bible is easy-to-use and includes the Strong’s Dictionary numbering system for easy reference.

Dictionary of Biblical Imagery This unique reference offers an encyclopedic exploration of topics not found in ordinary Bible dictionaries, including images, symbols, motifs, metaphors, and literary patterns of the Bible. This is my go-to source for Bible symbolism.

Vine’s Complete Expository Dictionary of Old and New Testament WordsThis book allows you to easily access the alphabetized English equivalents of Greek or Hebrew words from which they are translated. Includes the most significant biblical words illustrated by Scripture passages, comments, cross-references, ancient and modern meanings, precise etymologies, historical notes, and clearly defined technical information. Vine’s Dictionary is a must-have for serious Bible study students.

I have a complete list of my top recommended Bible study tools to enhance your Bible study experience and help you learn and grow in the Word.
