When you enroll in this course, you receive access to download the audio lessons, teaching outlines and further resources. For the best learning experience we recommend that you just listen the first time through, take notes the second, and then the third time through reflect on the content and how it is applicable to you or to the person you are counseling/trying to encourage.




“It is amazing how Joe opens up each topic of human struggle with such richness in just a one hour lesson. He lays a framework that offers great clarity to think about each issue deeply and thoroughly. Although the series is part of the counselor training curriculum, I think each lesson stands alone and is great for personal reflection as well. I find myself reaching for these lessons for encouragement, and enjoying them over and over again. Highly recommend!” Angela

“Joe offers practical knowledge and applies biblical wisdom in an uncommonly easy to understand approach. Not only have I learned about myself, I feel equipped to take others through positive life change. His lectures and notes are easy to follow and well organized. I’ll refer to these notes for years to come.” Kim
