About Us

Who We Are

Beyond Her Story provides transformational resources for women in ministry – leaders in the church, para-church leaders, pastor’s wives, missionaries, and more – designed to help you live well, lead well, and finish well. Beyond Her Story is an initiative of Blessing Ranch Ministries, a pioneer in the field of caring for Christian leaders and an innovator in identifying and meeting the needs of Kingdom leaders by integrating theology and psychology. This initiative is led by Dr. Charity Byers, a highly-respected psychologist who has spent years investing in the lives of women in ministry and other Christian leaders.

Our hope is to equip you, encourage you, inspire you, and help you experience the transformative power of God as you live your life, lead in your ministry, and leave a legacy for the next generation.

We’re constantly looking for ways to meet you where you are through a variety of program options like intensive counseling, workshops, content, and more. Our goals are to provide resources and services that are accessible to all women in ministry and to provide different levels of intensity and involvement to meet needs just where they are.

Make sure to check out our events page, our resources page, our groups page, our intensive counseling services page, and our blog to learn more about what we do.

Why We Do What We Do

We’ve worked with hundreds of women in ministry over the last 20 years, and see the struggles both in their professional lives and their personal lives. As women in ministry, you often have a lot of roles to play: you are leaders, wives, moms, and so much more. Life can feel like it’s full of multiple high priorities all pulling at you. Life as a woman in ministry can also be isolating. So, we want to come alongside of you to walk through your challenges with you.

We created this initiative to give special attention to helping women in ministry become and stay healthy so they can continue to make a substantial impact on their families, marriages, and the kingdom of God. We also want you to have life to the full (John 10:10) , lead to your potential (Ephesians 3:20), and experience joy and peace along the way (Romans 15:13).

Our hope – no, our call – is to equip a generation with transformative resources to help them live well, lead well, and finish well.
