I cannot wrap my head around PHP OOP programming. Is there any other ways to better understand it?
I've been watching the videos a few times and I'm going to watch them a few more times but I just don't seem to fully get it.... Are there any good resources out there to read or watch that may break it down step by step? Also will there be more courses related to this topic?

I was exactly the same as you when I first started learning OOP. You are so used to procedural and feel comfortable with it. So when you move to OOP and you don't understand it, well it can make you feel like you may never understand it! ( it did for me any).
But it is just a case of time, you will understand it as long as you keep practising. And one day it will just click, and you with think "why the hell didn't I get that before".
Treehouse is a very useful tool, however in terms of OOP for PHP it hasn't got the widest range of tutorials. Maybe check out this: http://code.tutsplus.com/tutorials/object-oriented-php-for-beginners--net-12762
Or sign up the lynda.com which does have a wide range of tutorials for OOP.
Good luck, and keep on it. You will learn it and move on to cool MVC frameworks like laravel.
