Women of Faith

So, who’s going to be at the pre-conference in Phoenix? Bethie and half of our girls are heading out today.

We have something kind of cool going on at LPM right now. I can’t really share details, but please pray for my mom and dad and our leadership to be wise and to know God’s will.

To end this very random post, my Wising Up group finished last night. (We skipped the three sessions on marriage and motherhood since most of the girls in my group are only 18 or 19.) We had a really enjoyable semester together. I know I am biased, but I loved the sessions. I am ready to do a homework study again next semester. Thankfully, there’s a new one out! More to come on that…

    I pray for the Lord to anoint Beth as she teaches our dear siestas in Phoenix. Lord, please protect them and give them travel mercies.

    Lord pour out Your wisdom, discernment, and clarity on the Moores and the staff as they make decisions. Give them confirmations as needed and close the doors that need to be closed.

    Please bless Amanda and her family as well as Melissa.

    Thank You for the work they all do to advance the Kingdom here on earth. In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen.

    some of the women from my church will be going, but I unfortunately did not have the money and was not meant to go so I will be be there. but I’m praying that ladies from my church that do go have a wonderful time and that encourages and teaches them so much that they can turn around and share with me and make it feel like I was there!

    Girl – they need the marriage and motherhood BEFORE they get to that point! Pave the way! Had my daughter there for those and she has now also just finished Esther because of those exact sessions! She said I have to have more wisdom for this marriage and soon to be mom thing. Just an encouragement to prepare non-married and non-moms in advance!

    Have a great time away . . . will be praying as you requested. Tell Beth that the “hat” was great! Especially with a cuppa watching an old flick with my man. Kudos!

    Congratulations on a job well done and finishing strong! I called LPM yesterday to see how Beth felt about finishing on Tuesday and how it went. Sounds like it was real blessing! The gal I spoke to said she cried as it was over! I am so thankful for all of you! AJ you are such a blessing to all us siestas! Praise God for your whole family, and have a wonderful Thanksgiving! Be safe, take care of your dear family, and know that you are very dearly loved!
    God Bless you all-

    I am so excited and ready to filled with the Word this Friday in PHX…I have just been diagnosed with cancer for the third time. I have been feeling real numb in my walk with the Lord,believing in His sovreignty and dealing with real life. It gets tough. So with that said, YES, I am ready for Beth and the crew to come and bless my (our) socks off…Amen !!

    Hi Amanda,
    I will join you in prayer for your parents, and for all those in leadership at LPM.

    We have 2 more sessions in our Wising Up discipleship class. Our class is made up primarily of married women so we are watching the entire 12 weeks. God has been awesome. He has spoken so clearly to our hearts in this study. We thank Him for His precious servant and teacher, our Beth.

    Strangely enough, I think we are ready for some homework as well.

    Next semester, we will re-visit Living Beyond Yourself and a second group will study, A Journey Through the Psalms of Ascent. I am so looking forward to it.

    You all have fun in the mountains next week. I pray it will be a time of relaxation and refreshment for each of you.

    Wish I would be going to warm and lovely Phoenix, but I am not. Lifting up the event though. May His glory shine and everyone be blessed more than they think possible!

    Please know that there are so many of us that will pray for your most precious family. We feel like a part of your family and take very seriously what God is doing in your lives. I’ll pray for wisdom, discernment, and His presence to be all there is! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Much love to you all.

    I was just visiting the Lifeway website and didn’t realize the new Bible study was out! I loved watching the video samples and was hugely and pleasantly surprised by the addition of music to the sessions! How awesome is that??!! It was also neat seeing Ms.Beth on location because I remember praying for her during that trip. I can’t wait for our church to do this study and am so hungry and excited for a fresh new word from the Psalms!

    The bus leaves the church parking lot today at 5:30 PM sharp! Be there – or be out of luck! Ha!

    I am working like a mad woman to get my sub-plans all laid out and ready for tomorrow. Plus, get all my Pilgrims and Native American Indians dressed and ready for Thanksgiving Feast in the cafeteria. BUSY day!

    Hey Amanda and LPM Staff,
    I pray for Gods will to be done in that situation. I have a special request for a new product. I’m surprised there isn’t one yet, I know it will be soon to come out, every year I look for one and end up buying Jonie Erikson Tada’s planner. A Beth Moore or LPM daily planner (I know there is the Whispers of Hope “planner” but you have to fill it in yourself)
    I’m talking about a 2008 daily planner with devotions etc… they would sell like hot cakes!!!!!!!!!!!

    Wow! Go Phoenix. Right about now I wish I lived in the south west… not the north east!!

    I don’t know what “cool” means… whether it is positive or negative I will commit the situation with LPM to prayer. Thank you for involving me and everyone else that reads the blog.

    Congrats on finishing your study. Onward and Upward.

    I am going!!! I cannot wait! I am driving one of our church vans up from Tucson, we have two van loads of ladies and we are so jazzed!

    I am a long time fan of and participant in Beth Moore Studies. I got to attend the Living Proof Conference last Decemeber, didn’t think I would be able to go to this one and so I resigned myself to not going. Praise God!! He had a better plan in mind, and I am going!!

    I only recently found your blog and have been tuning in whenever I can. It is such a blessing and and encouragement to know you all care about all of us so much. Praying for you all and LPM to have peace, and expectant antispation for what the Lord is doing.

    Amanda says:

    Oops! I guess I should have made my reason for skipping the marriage, sex, and motherhood sessions more clear. My group consists of college students and most of them are only freshmen and sophomores. I also felt it was beneficial to my girls to end before Thanksgiving so that they can concentrate on their finals when they get back.

    I will be there! I am going with my mom, my sister and my mother in law! I am so excited to hear what word Beth has to share with us! I am still remembering her words from last year about our anointing. I am especially excited to share this day with my family. My mom does not attend events like this very often (if ever!) and so I can’t wait to share the day and the learning with her.

    In addition the ladies from our church will be there and I hope that God uses this time to refresh them and prepare them for the year ahead. Our beloved Pastor is retiring in January and we have a long year ahead of us.

    Can’t wait until tomorrow! I better go pick out what to wear!

    That’s not fair! Not telling us about the new study or what else is going on at LPM. You’re basically blogging to not tell us a lot! Won’t be in Phoenix, but I just found out that the ladies from my church will be going to the Living Proof Live conference in Boise, ID May 16 and 17. I was going to go on my own but looks like I won’t have to now! I know that’s a while from now, but I just found out they’re planning to go as a group today, so I’m excited.

    Hey Amanda, I was at the pre-conference in Denver in Sept. and would love to have a copy of the commissioning that we said at the end of the day. Do you have that still? It really meant something special to the gals I went with. You girls rock and we are thankful for L.P.

    twinkle says:

    Ok, I’m just guessing but I think this teaser might have something to do with couples or men…

    Holy Father, we do love You and Your Creator power. It is just beyond my ability to think like You. And mercy, but I am so glad that You are like You are. My spirit is just a-tingle thinking about what YOUR plans are for this anointed group! Oh, that’s what I want for my life and for all my spiritual family, let us all be a-tingle with Your plans created especially for us! Bless Beth with words You give her to speak over this congregation. Bless this ministry to set sail…yes, Father, set sail. Give them the wind in their sails as You guide them to the destination You already have in Your sight. Oh, You are our Blessing! In Jesus Name. Amen.

    fallingforward says:

    I had two tickets for Beth’s pre-conference in Phoenix but had to give them up due to my daughter needing me here in Tucson to support her as she auditions for Christian Youth Theater.

    My dear bible study sisters from behind the screen in Jenni’s living room will be there!! I hope that everyone in attendance will be blessed by the lesson!

    Hmm…does your prayer request have anything to do with women with great hair, cactus and Bruegger’s Bagels? I may be way off base but am thinking back to something that Beth said while speaking at a LP conference in my state last December. I will pray that whatever is going on at LPM, that God will make his will PERFECTLY clear to every single person involved!

    I’m the Kim B that said earlier in a comment that I wasn’t going but that ladies from my church are going! Well!!!!! GOD IS GOOD! He worked out all the details and I will not be there tomorrow! I’m so stinkin’ excited for what the Lord has in store for me, especially since I didn’t think I was supposed to go and the Lord worked it out at the last minute. Now I know He has something for me there! Praise be to Him!

    hmmmm…we have lots of hair in texas, cactus, but no Bruegger’s Bagels, only PANERA! here…so what could it be? You got our attention. Very curious—don’t leave us hanging til after Christmas. Puh leez! Hmmmm? A brochure for Stepping Up arrived in the mail today—really nice jacket! We start Psalm of Ascents after Christmas…finishing up Breaking Free (for only 2nd time)—first time our Bible Study did it was like a decade ago and I couldn’t BELIEVE what answers I wrote then, oh my! Very wonderful to witness up close what my wonderful beautiful God has done in my life over the past few years!Praying for Phoenix Deut 32: 2-4
    Sweet Beth, may your teachings fall, your words descend like abundant rain on tender phoenix plants. For you will proclaim the Name of your Beautiful God. You will praise the Greatness of your Good God! He will be your Rock. His words in you are perfect for Phoenix.

    I sure wish I was going to Phoenix this weekend, but I think I’m going to have to wait until next Aug. before I see Beth. ๐Ÿ™
    Reading some of the comments I thought…
    I’m so excited that it worked out for Kim B to get to go this weekend to Phoenix afterall. I also want Jodi Dennis to know that I’m praying for her. I can’t imagine hearing news of cancer for the third time. I pray she has a wonderful time and is blessed this weekend at the pre-conference.
    God bless all,

    My curiosity is piqued! Now you’ve got to let us know what’s going on as soon as you can! I ordered the Wising Up DVDs for Christmas and can’t wait to hear all of them. (I already watched the first DVD! I was desperate for a word from Beth and boy, did I receive one! Had to do with leaving successfully. I’ll say no more.

    Hey Amanda! My dear friend Maria is at Women of Faith this weekend and I sent her a text that I was praying for her and for our Bethie. Well, she sent me one back saying that ‘Beth danced to Shackles…and this sista can dance!’ Any chance you can post that on the blog! Oh! Our freedom in Christ! How glorious! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I was in Phoenix Friday and got such a blessing. Beth was super charged up and frankly wore me out! I had already been in Nashville the earlier part of the week for the National Women’s Ministry Leadership Forum and then flew straight to Phoenix for more women, women, women! I have seen and heard everyone in women’s ministry this week! Not only that, I feel like Travis has personally accompanied me musically throughout this week. What a treat… Great job Beth. Your messages spoke straight to me and I am grateful.
