New Staff Member

Living Proof joyfully welcomes Curtis Jones to our staff!

My Dear Siestas, please join us as we welcome my dear son-in-law, Curtis, to our ministry staff. We are beside ourselves with joy! I know I’ve set myself up to be teased for announcing his arrival this soon after Melissa moved to Atlanta, but you’ll have to trust me when I tell you that you can’t talk Curtis Jones into a danged thing that he’s not convinced is God’s will. And I say that to his credit. Last fall we began to sense God opening a door for him here in Houston at LPM and have since worked on developing the position as he finished his responsibilities at the church he, Amanda, and Jackson loved so dearly. Curtis will be a wonderful addition to our team and you’ll be hearing from him through various avenues on the website. Please click onto his LPM page to learn lots more about it. We’re crazy about you guys around here and hope so much that this will be another way God will empower us to serve His Son to you. Blessings!

    I am so excited for our men, I’ve already told my husband, he said, “It’s about time!” Amen! I know the added bonus will be having Amanda and your sweet Jackson close by! WOOHOO!

    Just returning from Jacksonville I have been drinking in the message and walking “facing forward” to apprehend what I was apprehended for. Thinking it just can’t get much better, I opened LPM to do my Romans lesson and read about Curtis’ joining the staff. THEN I listened to his message from Isaiah 58 and WOW!! What a blessing we are in for to have another such annointed teacher with the wonderful LPM ministry team. Welcome!! May God continue to bless through your mouth and teaching. (And can I say how beautiful your little Jackson is!!)
    Praying wisdom and strength over you as you step out with the truth of the Word of our God and King ~ go boldly with the meat of Scripture. Mercy, Grace and Peace to follow you as you serve in the Precious Name Above all names.

    Welcome Curtis! I hate to ask for selfish prayers at a joyous time like this for you. But I need as much covering as I can get. I found out my husband is having an affair last night. My heart is breaking, especially for my kids. Please pray that I can conduct myself in a manor worthy of my Lord Jesus Christ and children to feel God’s love surrounding them. Thanks Siestas!

    Hallelujah! Curtis, I am so glad you have joined LPM. I’m sure you will have a crash course in how women tick being surrounded by them all day.

    Beth and Amanda, I know you must miss Melissa…but I’m glad she has settled in my neck of the woods. Georgia is a wonderful place to live. I love it!

    this comment is not in regard to your posting, amanda, but i wasn’t sure what forum to make this request: something is very deeply weighing on my heart and i wondered if beth had thoughts on it or was willing to weigh in, i am so disillusioned and upset (used to be a fan of, not anymore) oprah, have you seen this youtube video?
    not a shock because she’s been alluding to these beliefs for a while, but here it is spoken straight from her mouth. it scares me because she is so powerful and influential, but i guess we can only pray those with a deeply rooted relationship with Christ could not be swayed.

    Beth says:

    Welcome Curtis- It does my heart good to see genuine, transparent man of God. I can’t wait to see the contributions you will make to the ministry. It takes a very secure man to enter the presence of that many hormonal(or lack thereof) women. May God richly bless you and your sweet family.

    What a glorious answer to prayer! I believe we will see God glorified, magnified, and His kingdom multiplied by this wonderful addition to LPM. Yes, it’s living proof that our God is a BIG God indeed!

    Praise His holy name- Jesus!

    I just “Tuned in Today” and listened to Curtis teaching–by the time he was finished–I was in tears..Thank you, Curtis for your servants heart–you are certainly called of God and blessed beyond measure…Amanda has emailed me in response to my email about our son who is battling brain cancer with so much compasion and praying earnestly for his complete healing. We are so grateful for so many who are standing in prayer with us for complete victory…the Word tells us: “Whatever you desire when you pray; Believe that you have received and you shall have what-so-ever you ask In My Name”. I know God is moving us to another level of believing–God will give us the desires of our heart IF we are living according to His Word….Thank you, Beth for adding Curtis to the staff…He is going to be a welcome blessing to all of us….

    Welcome Curtis! As I have thanked God for Beth and her studies, I have often asked Him to raise up a man who my man could learn from. At our WHGDP study a few weeks ago all the women said the same thing. I can’t wait to see where God leads you and to see you bring all your God given gifts as a whole new dimension to this ministry. Welcome!

    Hooray! There’s nothing like living and working with the ones you love.

    I didn’t want to leave a comment until I’d had a chance to listen to Curtis’s sermon on “Worship”–finished it yesterday morning while I was curling my hair! And loved it. In fact, I’ve been thinking about it and seeking more of what God wants to teach me about worship. Our pastor just started a six-week series on worship–and I just don’t believe in coincidences anymore.

    So welcome, Curtis, to Siestaville!

    I have to tell you that last night’ session of the Psalms of Ascent (lesson #5)…where you had us all stand shoulder to shoulder was a powerfully moving moment for many of us. As Travis sang the closing song, I found a couple of friends, locked arms with them and wept.

    I sure do love my Bible study gals. They have been good to me. They have loved me, inspite of me. Interestingly enough, yesterday was one of those days when Satan began playing those tapes of my “unworthiness” to minister because of divorce. I had no idea about the topic of your video…it couldn’t have been more timely.

    Also, one of the most important things you offered me were your words about forgiveness…about remembering that when someone hurts us…it’s not them that’s doing the hurting…it’s the enemy.

    Now that’s something to chew on for a season. We prayed for you. We love you. Keep at the helm! Be blessed this day.

    peace for the journey~elaine

    Hi Beth. I just attended your conference in Jacksonville, FL. I really enjoyed it and wanted to thank you for answering the calling that God placed on your life. I am a MK (missionary kid). I was born and raised in the jungles of Venezuela where my parents have been missionaries for over 30 years! I lived there until i met my husband who came down on a short term mission trip in 2002. We got married a year later and i now live in SC. It’s a lot different then what I am used to but God is faithful. I have been a bit discouraged at not being on the mission field, but God has really laid it on my husbands heart to start a hispanic ministry here, so i’m looking forward to that. I have a book that i would like to send you. It’s called “spirit of the rainforest” it a true story on the yanomamo indians( the tribe i grew up with) it’s a shamans testimony of how Christ saved him. i think you would really enjoy it. if it’s ok, could i mail it to you?

    I was listening to Curtis’ sermon while I was getting ready yesterday morning and my husband asked who it was that I was listening to. I told him the exciting news not ever having it cross my mind that Curtis’ role may be as an outreach for men through LPM. I woke my husband up this morning and he asked where he could listen to that sermon. I pulled it up on the computer and left it for him and went on my way to get on the treadmill. As I was thanking God and praising him for all He has done in my life I prayed that what He has done in my life through Beth’s studies that God would do in my husband’s life through Curtis’ role at LPM. I am so excited! (I am also thanking God that our 3 year old slept extra late this morning!)

    Congratulations on Curtis joining the LPM team. I listened to his sermon and wow can he preach or what.

    Amanda I am sure you find it a blessing to have a husband who know the word well and applies it to his life. I have one like that and let me tell you I am very grateful to God for him. And I be tyou are excited about being closer to your Parents.

    Beth I bet you are loving the fact that they will be closer. How cool is that. Looks like praise dancing with your grandson will happen more often now. At least I am assuming that they are moving closer.

    I laughed as I read Curtis’s bio…my husband has been doing Beth Moore studies for years. At first he was very quiet about sharing it, but has long since given up his silence. He even convenced our couples small group of 12 to do the study on David. Awesome time with God and our husbands!

    Beth, thank you for bringing God’s Word alive for us!

    Dear Beth,
    This is really off topic but I had to let you know. Tonight we started week 9 of Daniel. At the end of the video you asked if people said the pray with you to let you know. Well I am letting you know I said it as did my Siestes. Many of us were in tears. With a humble heart I thank you:)

    Congratulations Curtis! Welcome aboard.

    Love to all,

    I listened to your message on Isaiah 58 twice. The Lord truly blessed my heart by your words. I know the students you spoke to on that day were blessed as well.

    I am sure you are a huge asset to the LPM staff. Congratulations on your new position.
