Bev and her husband and college sweetheart, Gary, live in Temple, Texas, where Gary has pastored Temple Bible Church for over 32 years, watching it grow from 40 people to more than 4,000. Bev has taught Bible studies and spoken at women’s conferences and prisons in the U.S. and internationally. God used the pain of an abusive childhood to draw her to His heart. Now she takes this message of hope to hurting women all over the world. In her book Return to Joy, Bev talks of her walk on the broken road to intimacy. The mother of two grown children, she is also Honey to six precious grandchildren, and a loving caregiver to her elderly in-laws.
