Christian Courses and Programs

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!
