Corie Weathers, LPC, NCC
Founder/Owner of Lifegiver
Corie Weathers, licensed professional counselor (LPC), is a sought-after speaker, consultant, and author of the award- winning book Sacred Spaces: My Journey to the Heart of Military Marriage. Corie has focused her career for the last 20 years as a clinician specializing in marriage, military and first responders, the service culture, and its impact on families.
She has traveled to Turkey, Iraq, Afghanistan, and the Persian Gulf to visit troops and report on deployment conditions with Secretary of Defense Ash Carter and has taught service families across the globe, including Japan.
Nicknamed “#Coriespondent”, Corie consults on military and first responder culture, produces content through interviews and videos, emcees events as well as facilitates meaningful and productive sessions and retreats for families on how to live, lead, find purpose, and build relationships using their natural talents. Her Lifegiver Podcast provides encouraging content and inspirational interviews to service families and marriages.
A little bit about “Us”
Working as a power-couple, Corie and her husband, a US military chaplain, have provided countless weekend marriage retreats for military couples and relationship retreats for single soldiers. As a part of an initiative to encourage more marriages to develop and maintain healthy, balanced marriages, Matthew and Corie were followed by the USO for the “You’re Leaving Again?” Series. Couples from around the globe joined the free study and have found great improvements in their intimacy and connection. This curriculum was written during their own deployment and is perfect for military couples who face separation frequency. As a Gallup Faith Strengths Advisor, she has traveled all over the world investing in individuals and teams who desire to know and excel in their relationships, influence, purpose, and productivity using the Gallup StrengthsFinder inventory. She is regularly invited to military events and retreats as a speaker.
Corie was the Care Team Coordinator for the 3rd Squadron 61st Cavalry Regiment of the 4th Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division at Fort Carson, CO. Jake Tapper’s New York Times Best-Selling Book The Outpost: the Untold Story of American Valor, documents the squadron’s historic involvement in Operation Enduring Freedom X in the Kamdesh Valley of Afghanistan, now known as the “Battle of COP Keating”. Eleven soldiers were lost during this one deployment. Since then, Corie has served Gold Star families and consulted military command and their volunteers on issues of grief, the notification process, and Care Team development. She currently serves as an Ambassador for the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation serving military and first responder families and volunteers with the Red Cross training mental health professionals to be more culturally competent in their work with military and first responders.
