Board of Directors

 

Vicki Goodrich, President, was a stay-at-home mom for the early years of her children’s lives. Her experiences as a wife and mother, Bible study Vickileader, home school coordinator for a local Christian school, youth leader, drama coach and mission team leader were excellent training ground for the work she does today. In 1995, she became a participant in a Seekers group with Living Well Ministries. After going through her own healing process, she sensed the call of God to learn how to facilitate this same healing process for others. The founder of the original group became her mentor. Vicki increased her educational experience, by accepting work at a nearby Community Service agency in the field of addictions. She has since completed her Bachelors in Biblical Studies and her Masters in Ministry of Christian Counseling. Most recently, she received her licensure with the State of Georgia as a Christian Counselor. In addition, she continues to take courses in lay counseling from the Center for Biblical Counseling, an extension of the American Association of Christian Counselors. Mrs. Goodrich has served as President and Executive Director of Living Well Ministries, Inc. since 2002.

Founder

BarbyBarby Westmoreland’s story includes a desperate struggle with alcoholism and her amazing recovery journey which began in rehab in her late forties and has continued for 20-plus years in an ever-increasing celebration of life through Jesus Christ. Barby was a high-school English teacher until she retired in l970 to enjoy her own children’s teen years, to pursue a Biblical Studies program, to teach both youth and adult Bible studies in her church and neighborhood…and to learn some very important lessons about living well in spirit, soul, and body. In 1985 she was selected and trained as Teaching Director to help bring Community Bible Studies, an international Bible study ministry, to Atlanta, Georgia. With that initial class established, she followed a dream, moved to St. Simons Island, Georgia, and entered training to become a Certified Addictions Counselor, licensed by the State of Georgia. She worked professionally both as an addictions counselor in secular hospitals and in private practice as a Christian Family Counselor under the authority of local churches. Eventually she retired to share, through lay ministry, what she had learned, both personally and professionally, about the Biblical and psychological principles of “living well.” She began this work in 1994 when she founded Living Well Ministries, Inc., a soul-care ministry that takes participants from “seeker of Truth” to “servant of others” through a discipleship process. This soul-care discipleship process includes renewing the mind, healing the emotions, and maturing the spirit for the purpose of discovering and developing one’s personal ministry and mission in life. Barby retired as president of LWM, Inc. in 2002 to spend more time writing, speaking and consulting with individuals, pastors, health and mental-health professionals, and other professional care-givers to expose the need for more competent soul-care in both the Church and the community. She continues this work through ConsultCARE, a service which operates independently from, but in cooperation with, all other lay-ministries, churches and professional care-givers. Barby and her husband, Westy, are one of the founding families of St. Simons Community Church where they love to worship and serve. They are blessed with three beloved daughters and their families, including six wonderful grandchildren.
