9-week Joy Restoration Coach© Training / Certification - CCGC

At PCCCA / Beautiful Life Int'l, this course is also known as

Christian Grief Coach© Training / Certification - CJRC

Joy Restoration course includes all this!


According to SHRM, "COVID-19 grief is different than other types of grief, warn mental health and grief experts ... 'COVID grief is disenfranchised grief,' said psychiatrist Joshua Morganstein, chair of the American Psychiatric Association committee that issued special guidance for its members caring for patients affected by COVID-19 grief. 'They are living with grief they are unable to express through normal outlets.'"

Nearly everyone has experienced or is currently experiencing Covid-related grief over a related loss, be it a loved one, a job, relationships, security, health, etc.

Previously, 72% experienced grief in the past 3 years. (This was before Covid-19.)
WebMD’s survey, “Grief: Beyond the 5 Stages,” sought to discover how people grieve after different life events and how they got through them. It was taken May 16 to May 19, 2019, by 1,084 U.S. respondents. Of those, 780 said they had grieved over a life event in the past 3 years.

Time magazine reported not long ago that 50 million people in the U.S. alone are suffering from some sort of loss or grief. Now you can meet the needs of countless individuals worldwide, who are suffering.

Grief coaching (we call it Joy Restoration coaching) from a biblical worldview is the most empowering coaching available to help others move from the depths of their loss-related sorrow to a new-found life of daily joy.

This course has been deemed safe for sensitive students

Where do we struggle with loss, sorrow or grief?

  • Death of a spouse, child, loved one
  • Natural disaster (i.e. Jan., 2010 earthquake in Haiti)
  • Divorce and loss of a marriage
  • Loss of social interaction & other grief with Covid-19 - SPECIAL TRAINING ADDED
  • Forced changes or shutdowns causing loss of purpose
  • Loss of health
  • Incarceration
  • Loss of a home to foreclosure
  • Forced separation / distance from a loved one
  • Loss of a beloved family pet
  • Addiction / separation of a loved one
  • Loss of a job / income
  • Financial loss due to unscrupulous dealings
  • Loss of a relationship
  • Complicated grief from more than one event

  • There are many types of losses we are forced to cope with and above are just a few. They are different one from another, yet each one can cause devastating pain and keep us from focusing, working effectively and relating properly. The pain of loss can cause us to react in unproductive and unhealthy ways, unless we deliberately choose a more productive path.

    You may be thinking to yourself that you don't coach or work in a grief-related area nor do you expect to. Please understand that every one of us will be affected directly or indirectly with losses during our lifetime. The question remains: Will we be prepared? And will we stand ready to help those we work with, when a tragedy happens to them? Our world sadly, has not become a more comforting place. Now is the time to get trained.

    "In this program, you will learn to help someone reduce suffering 5-8 years, often down to a matter of months!"

    More Testimonials:

    The first one below is from Facebook. You'll find program graduate, GiGi Ringness' testimonial in
    the comments of this post.

    "The most important "aha" moment for me was discovering that I was sabotaging myself with toxic thoughts. Now, I understand the origin of those thoughts, how to renew my mind and the important role Scripture plays.

    I would recommend this program to others not only because of the course material and exercises but because the business related assignments are a step by step guide in helping you set up your business."

    Leslie Rivers Brito


    "Thank you for the opportunity to become a better life coach by such excellent course offerings."

    "This course came available at just the right time and I jumped on the opportunity. I was looking forward to the class each week, and it turned out to be a blessing."

    "Erien W. Fryer


    "I feel more in control of my mind, my health and my daily routine. One of the sessions even helped me to have peace in a very upsetting situation!!

    I most certainly would recommend this program to anyone who is ready to begin coming out of the dark and live the life God has planned for them to live.

    This program has been done in excellence and is very easy to follow. The projects are exciting and I don't want to put them down until I am finished.

    I have cried as I listened to several of the sessions because I know there is a great change coming for me, one that will bless many people. I thank GOD for this JOY RESTORATION!!"

    Why grief coaching instead of counseling?

    While counseling can be very helpful with deep-seated emotional issues or in cases where clinical issues have developed, Joy Restoration coaching is designed to help the client overcome more quickly by leaning on faith principles to help them make those changes in their life that the Word of God tells us, will enable us to live a full, joyful and yes, abundant life!

    Grief follows a fairly predictable pattern in one's life. We may not be able to avoid matters that cause grief, but we can learn how to deal with grief when it happens, in a healthy, productive way, to minimize its duration and help us resume a fully functioning, productive life.

    The CCGC is presented as an online, 9-WEEK program with specialized Joy Restoration© or Christian Grief Coach© Training, proprietary 7-Step Happiness by Choice Method© Licensing and Business/Marketing Excellence.

    Tony Hawkins

    Dr. Bush, Just had to share some excitement and blessing with you.  A local ministry that serves our community contacted me to provide some coaching seeing I had my Christian Life Coaching certification and was working on my Joy Restoration certificate.

    I will be working with community members on a variety of levels to help them find direction for their lives once again. They've offered me an opportunity to begin training, too, to work with those with life-controlling issues as well, and have offered to pay for that training once I've completed this training certification.

    I'll be able to charge a fee for my grief coaching services upon completion of my training. Very excited here in Kentucky and even for the future with what PCCCA / Beautiful Life International, L.L.C. is going to bring positively into my life. I will actually get to work hand-in-hand with two other Christian Life Coaches who established the ministry I mentioned earlier.

    I am MOST excited about learning and sharing your "7-Step Happiness by Choice Method." Your program is AWESOME! Can't thank you enough.

    Upon Successful Completion You Will Receive Two Certifications.


    Certified Joy Restoration Coach© and Certified Christian Grief Coach© so that you can use your credential in any environment, be it Christian or secular.

    You will receive beautiful, ready-to-frame certificates with gold seals as evidence
    of successful completion of this professional training program.

    Financial Outlook

    Excellent. More than any other niche, a specialty that helps the client relieve or limit the pain of grief and resume a normal, happy life is one that those suffering from grief are willing to pay well for.

    Unlike other types of coaching, grief coaching has a limited scope and time duration. The coach can anticipate 3 to 6 months maximum length of time with each client. A Grief Coaching practice will grow by referrals from satisfied clients as well as professional recommendations and other promotional sources. Up-to-date marketing is included in training.
