Captive Thoughts is dedicated to bringing every thought captive to Christ through the weekly study of the Westminster Confession of Faith and Catechisms, with primary focus on the Westminster Shorter Catechism.


The intent of the weekly catechism study is to

  • Foster a greater understanding of and commitment to the precious truths of Scripture and the Reformed Faith
  • Engender deeper family devotions and catechism instruction
  • Lend aid towards the memorization and appreciation of Scripture and the Secondary Standardsimages-10

Each study concludes with questions based upon the book Training Hearts, Teaching Minds by Starr Meade, a“Family Devotional based on the Shorter Catechism.” Obtaining a copy of Training Hearts, Teaching Minds is highly recommended. The book may be purchased from various sources, included P&R Publishing at
