Victory Reins

A Ministry of Think LifeChange Institute

Our mission is very simple. It is to provide bible-centered guidance and teaching to those struggling with mental, emotional and spiritual problems as well as those who desire to learn and grow in their relationship with God and others. Victory Reins offers services for couples, individual adults, families, teens, children ages ten and over, and groups.

At Victory Reins our goal is to teach healthy, long-lasting relationships with God, self, and others by experiencing and establishing relationships with horses. We believe that God created humans for relationships. Therefore true Victory is only gained through a relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. It is our hope that through our program that knowledge can be transformed into a heart connection and meaningful relationship with Him.

What Our Clients Say

"Victory Reins helped me grow closer to the Lord by showing me the burden of my sins and the lasting freedom in Christ. Through the weekly interactions with the horses, I came into a deeper understanding of my relationship with Jesus and how sin affects my walk with Him. Even now, one year after I finished the curriculum, the memories of the activities and discussions are engrained in my mind as allegories to my relationship with Jesus. I really appreciate the work of Victory Reins."

Sarah D. Magnolia, TX

"Having never been around horses, other than some apprehension, I did not have any expectations for how this experience would unfold. I had been through The Heart of the Problem, so I felt I had a good understanding of how it would be incorporated into the training. There is some truth in that statement, however God revealed much more than I could have imagined by use of the horses, the weather, and our (counselor/counselee) hearts. All of these elements had a part in painting extraordinary visuals, displaying God’s presence and how we are blind to our sin and how that sin weighs us down so much that it becomes our primary focus, which spawns into our problems that we quickly blame on our circumstances. It was an humbling experience that brought me closer in my walk with Christ and revealed my heart. I just want to thank both Alison and Kelly for the instruction and opportunity to be a part of what they are doing. It is truly life-changing."
