    About Beverly Lucas
    Hello everyone, I'm Beverly Lucas. I was born in PA, raised in NJ, and now call MD my home. I have three incredible adult sons and one fabulous daughter-in-love. My long, winding road to coaching started in higher education, then to graduate school for a Master's Degree in Marriage & Family Therapy, home to the rear and homeschool my three sons, then back to work after divorce.
    God wastes nothing!
    I now direct the Counseling & Soul Care Ministries at my church and witness first-hand the healing power and grace of God in the lives of hurting people. While running a small professional organizing business, I discovered the sheer joy of encouraging and empowering healthy women to dream big and win. Although I love working at my church, life coaching provides a nice balance and a career that I hope to maintain for years to come. When I'm not counseling, organizing, or coaching, I enjoy a good book, the company of a good friend, a good seafood meal, and an I Love Lucy marathon.

A Rose Among Thorns

Loved the EFM episode. I would say that Kim was “a rose among thorns” for that interview, but all the Entrepreneurial Family Men were so honoring and so much fun to listen to....and the bond they share reminds me of the laughter of the Trinity. If I weren’t already training with PCCI to become a coach, I would sign up immediately after hearing Chris M, Chris N, Mike and Jamie talk about the freedom and fulfillment found in this field, where the harvest is ripe.
