SOULCORE LEADER – COURTNEY

I am a licensed counselor, residing in Lake Charles, LA, where I am the owner of Saint Raphael’s Refuge Counseling Center. I am also employed with the Diocese of Lake Charles as a counselor on the Rachel’s Vineyard team. I have been married to my husband, Sterling for 5 years. My devotion to the Blessed Mother deepened after the loss of my mother and Sterling’s conversion to Catholicism. Because of my devotion to Mary and my strong desire to provide a lovely form of meditation to my clients, I fell in love with SoulCore. I can’t wait to share it with others.

A FEW OF COURTN’EY’S FAVORITE SCRIPTURE VERSES:

Romans 8:28; Mathew 25:23; Luke 12:48; Psalms 46:10; I Corinthians 13: 4-7

SOULCORE LEADER – BARBARA

My name is Barbara and I live in Lake Charles, Louisiana. I was born and raised in Central Louisiana, where French is still spoken. For this reason, I am proud to be bilingual. I’m a cradle Catholic, with 12 years of Catholic School education. I then received an Associate degree in Secretarial Science, as it was called then. Later in life, I became a Registered Respiratory Therapist, and worked in that capacity for 30 years in area hospitals. I am the mother of 4 children and grandmother of 5, all of whom live in my area. I have been a 3rd order lay carmelite for 18 years; I serve on the Rachel’s Vineyard Team, as well as volunteering with Gabriel Project and singing in the choir of my parish church. My hobbies include crossword puzzles, canning/preserving fruits and vegetables; sewing; gardening and entertaining family and friends.
