    I can NEVER tell you what LPM means to me. My life and relationship with the Lord is so much richer than it would have been without you. I just can't imagine.

    I know it is a difficult job teaching so many women. Thank you for giving you life to the Lord and following His leadings.

    I begin to watch the videos and my husband heard them and moved over closer to me so he could watch too. He was really laughing at all the stories. Thank you Village for sharing.

    Beth,what a delight to watch these videos. Thank you for putting them together and sharing with us. It is amazing what God has done and is doing through Living Proof! Loved hearing all the staff share their memories, but especially loved getting to hear Lis,AJ and Curtis! Praise God for all of you and wishing you many more years doing whatever He call you to do!

    THANK YOU for sharing your staff and your life to all of us Beth! As I am watching these videos, I can't help but be encouraged in the LORD. How refreshing to view a ministry that takes great pains in striving and pointing ALL attention to Almighty God and HIS ability to do miracles. You are Living Proof….and by his grace, so am I. Much love and prayers.

    I praise God for LPM! You all are so sweet and caring and fun and it is an honor to partner with you through prayer! It is a blast to study God's Word with you, praise God with you and you all have a special place in my heart.

    I cannot put into words exactly what you all mean to me but I will never ever be able to thank you enough for the many ways you have ministered to me. Thank you for the many prayers that you have said over me and my family. Just knowing that y'all are praying means more than you know. Jesus shines through each of you!

    It was a joy to listen to the videos and to hear the memories each of you shared. It made me laugh and smile. 🙂

    I will share a fav memory of mine. It was in 2005 at the LPL Knoxville. I will never forget the prior year prayerwalking the arena with a group of women, before you got there. The honor of praying over you, now that made me a nervous wreck. lol I thought who am I to be doing this. I remember how you came to that conference inspite of the hurricane that hit Houston. I felt for you and your staff but you came and taught us Loving Well! My other treat and surprise was that I would get to see you on Sat. morning and you prayed over me and anointed my hands. Beth, I still remember what you prayed and I thank you again! I have been coming to LPL for 9 years and I get excited at coming to each conference like it was my first one. :))

    Thank you for serving us!!
    Much love and hugs,

    Thank you Heavenly Father for the gift of LPM. Many of us have come together for Bible Studies and LPM events. Each and every time we gather Lord our minds and hearts are set upon you.

    Thank you for giving us the gift of Beth, her family, her devoted sisters and brothers at LPM. For the annointing of our dear sister Beth. She makes your word come alive in a way that brings us closer together and most importantly Father brings us closer to you.

    Thank you Father for the gifts of your Son, your grace, forgiveness and your mercy. That you could use any of us to your Glory is a pure mystery to me but a hope that I forever hold.

    I wish that my words could convey the gratefulness I have for LPM and all involved. The way that God has changed my heart and mind through studying with you, laughing with you and praising God with you is down right flabbergasting. My prayer is that we all will continue to be faithful to HIS call over us regardless of the price. I am humbled and honored to be a Siesta.

    Thank you for fighting the good fight with us and for us.

    All my love,

    abraham's daughter says:

    Only to my siestas would I confess that I am sitting here with a head full of dye to congratulate Living Proof on 15 years!

    I love this blog–love knowing that Beth Moore loves Jesus and us! And Beth, I have been "talking" to you for almost 7 years now. I had gotten into more serious Bible study through Precept back in 2000. And a friend lent me a copy of a message that you gave at the Precept Conference. It impacted me so. I ordered it on DVD and have watched in many, many times. Then I progressed to becoming a Lifeway regular, buying everything that had your name on it and working through the Bible studies on my own. Precept studies, too. My husband likes to tease me when I quote Beth Moore and Kay Arthur. I just know that I am so blessed to be mentored by such wonderful women of God.

    And the blog is great for knowing that we are part of a community but also to know what is happening in the Living Proof ministry and how to pray.

    OK, time to rinse!

    Boy, there is no one else on earth that can get me to bawlin' like Beth Moore. The 15th Anniversary Tribute is fabulous and I enjoyed every single second of it. I know all these women and one man and I can tell you, without a doubt, they are all great people of God. May you have at least another 15 years unless Jesus comes first.If He chooses to come, I have no doubt that we will have thunderous Living Proof joy in Heaven.

    Fran says:

    Happy Anniversary LPM! I am so glad you were in place for me when I, a life-long church member, came to know our sweet Jesus almost 12 years ago. The hunger and thirst I felt to know my Lord has been satisfied time and time over through Beth's studies. I now am the coordinator and facilitator of Beth's Bible studies at my church- more living proof of how our gracious God can use us- even me!
    Love to you all-

    Happy Anniversary LPM! It was so much fun to "meet" the staff.

    I am almost postive it was Sabrina who answered the phone about 3 years ago when I called after my best friend had committed suicide. I wanted to make a donation to LPM in memory of her, and Sabrina was so incredibly sweet to me. It was nice to finally see her.

    You have such a wonderful ministry.

    I have to share this story from Video #3 when Jennifer Hamm was speaking of her memory from Believing God. I was in that study and remember worship so vividly. We were singing, "We Believe in God the Father. We Believe in Christ the Son…" We sang that song as our declaration of faith nightly. It was kinda like our "theme song" throughout the week.

    The last night of the study, I so felt the Holy Spirit telling me to reach across the aisle and grab the hand of the lady standing there. My mom was on the right of me which was no big deal to take her hand, but I had no clue who the lady across the aisle was. And if I was obedient, what in the world would that lady think?!?! I want to tell you, I was really scared and way out of my element!

    My heart started beating really fast and again the Holy Spirit urged me on. I finally took the "step of faith", walked over to her, and held that precious sister's hand across the aisle there at Houston's First Baptist Church. I had no idea what God was up to….

    It was definitely like a ripple effect or like the "wave" you do at a sporting event. All across the entire church, the Body of Christ was stepping out and holding hands across the aisle. I was to the far right of the platform so I could see the joining together of all those beautiful women.

    "We are the Church and we stand as one…. Holy, Holy, Holy is our God. Worthy, worthy, worthy is the Lamb!"

    The praise band stepped off of the platform and came and took their place amongst us. Never have I felt the power and presence of God in such a huge, mighty, and tangible was as I did that evening.

    We are the CHURCH and we stand as one, united as one, in THE ONE who draws us all together.

    We weren't Baptists, or Methodists, or Catholics, or Presbyterians, or Jewish, or Gentile, or anything other than what God intends for us to be….
    His children, united together, loving one another, lifting our voices and praising our Master.

    Oh PRAISE HIS HOLY NAME!!! To Him who was, who is, and is to come be all praise, honor, and glory forevermore!!

    Joni says:

    Praise God for all He has done through Living Proof! How awesome to look back and see how the Hand of God brings forth much fruit in a life that's totally devoted to Him! You have been and continue to be an inspiration to me, Beth, from the first time I saw you on video,(Believing God), when I was desperate for relief from panic disorder. Your bold faith encouraged me to commit to a spiritual journey to find my freedom in Christ! And God responded in ways I would never have believed possible. His peace and love is real and available to all–even to ordinary women like me! God reigns! Jesus lives! And God's Word renews, restores and heals hearts and minds. May God continue to bless you, Beth, and your ministry. Praise you, Lord! Forever Your Word will stand!

    Isaac's Mom says:

    Praise God!! I have been a student of yours Beth beginning with "A Woman's Heart". I wish I could put into words what God has done in my life from that time until the very present day. I was hooked from that study and have such a craving for His word. I study with other teachers as well but I must admit I like your style of teaching the best!!

    Congratulations to you and thank you so very much for your obedience to God's call on your life.

    Thank you LPM staff for all you do to bring the Gospel to thousands of women who desperately need to hear it!! You are wonderful, beautiful women.

    God's richest blessings to you all,

    I love this post so much! It was great to "meet" all the people behind the scences at LPM!!! You have all played a part in how the Lord has taught me to absolutely LOVE His Word and allow it to change my heart and life! I Praise God for each one of you and the work that He is doing through you!

    sos says:

    Beth, thank you for sharing your personal walk with the Lord and inspiring us to be all we can be as new creatures in Christ.

    I appreciated being able to actually see the people involved in the LPM and what they each do. I don't remember seeing Susan and would like to see her as she contributed to the ministry over the years (I think as your assistant before Michelle).

    May the Lord continue to work mightly through each of you and bring glory to His name, ha Shem.

    Our study group is eternally blessed. Thank you all so very much.

    I loved these videos. LOVED THEM. I know some of the LPM ladies' names (and guys, sorry Curtis…), and really enjoyed seeing their sweet faces.

    And just so you know, I am obsessed with all things "behind the scenes." I love knowing the background of stuff. Makes this very inquisitive persone VERY happy. Thank you!

    Lastly, Beth & Melissa, FOR CRYING OUT LOUD, PLEASE PUT ON YOUR SEATBELTS IN THE CAR. I, for one, would like to have you around for 50 more years. You know, when Beth turns 79, right? 🙂

    Love you all!

    Sarah M. says:

    15 years! Incredible! I absolutely love the explanation of LP – that God would risk His name on me! What a risk it is, yet He considered it a worthy cause.

    These videos made me wish I lived closer to Houston that I could volunteer/work at LPM! Congratulations on 15 successful, Grace-filled years! You have touched this heart several times during those 15 years, and continue today.

    And I agree…a Siesta Cruise!! All aboard?!

    Debbie says:

    Beth –

    I will just quote from a song I love, "thank you for giving to the Lord, I am a life that was changed." One day maybe I will get to tell you in person what your ministry has meant to me if not here than in heaven where the words will be perfect.
    I pray God's continued blessings on the ministry, on you, your family and all the ladies who hear your words. He is real ladies and He loves you!

    Love and Blessings, Debbie in Tennessee

    Wow, I just finished watching all 5 videos! It is AMAZING what God has done over the past 15 years in this ministry. It wasn't sought after, but it has been given. For such a time as this!!! That means that God is getting all the glory, as He should. I loved seeing all the homegirls and homeguys of LPM!! I guess the guys we'll call home princes:) I know that many women contact this ministry every year to let you know how much they are touched by it. I am no exception. I am completely touched by this ministry too:) All the siestas feel the same:) Ya'll know it!!!

    What Beth said about a long obedience in the right direction, I totally needed to hear that today. It seems God calls me to do everything that I don't want to do. Quite frankly, what He calls me to do scares me and stresses me out. Because, I don't think I can handle it. And I'm right. I can't handle it on my own-it has to be all HIM! Then, He makes me that living proof I should be!

    Love to each one of you at LPM. I look forward to what God has in store in the months ahead.

    Thanks LPM staff for your hard work and for your steadfast faith in our precious Lord.

    Praise God for all he has done!! I loved the interviews with all of your staff. You guys keep on having a blast together.
    I love getting together with my girlfriends and just laughing until we cry. We get in trouble in public sometimes too, lol! The more mad people get, I hate to say it, but the more funnier it all becomes.
    Melissa cracked me up. I remember feeling the same way as she did when I first started ministry with the women in our church. It took me a little while, but they got to me. They were determined to bring out the diva in me.
    Congratulations on 15 glorious years. I love you all so much!! What an inspiration you have been to me and my ministry.

    Praise the Lord for LPM!!!

    Thank you for taking the time to create these videos for us to see. I thought there would be so many more people who worked "behind the scenes!", I'm surprised, really.

    Prior to seeing this, what was the only reason I would want to endure the scorching Texas Summers by moving to Texas? To be able to come and do a LIVE Beth Moore bible study, of course! But now … boy oh boy would I love to work at LPM! 🙂

    God Bless you ALL and thank you for all of your hard work!

    Congratulations on 15 years!

    What a testimony to what God can do through someone who will follow him by faith one day at a time!

    I LOVED every second of this chronicle but I actually sat here and cried over Mr. Selig's obvious devotion to you and your ministry. What a feeling to have someone believe in you more than you ever believed in yourself. :))

    Much love to you and the entire LPM family!

    Michelle says:

    Wow! Those videos made me cry.

    I realized I have been part of Living Proof for 12 years! It was in 1997 or 98 that I did A Woman's Heart, God's Dwelling Place at age 22. A mom of a 1 and 3 year old, and a Yankee living in southwestern Oklahoma (20 min from Texas border), I got one of my first tastes of Texas through your stories and YOUR HAIR!!

    I thought of the stack of workbooks I have and the blog posts I've read; I thought about my kids scribbles in my workbooks to a Bible marked up because of spending time in it!

    I have index cards all over my house and in every single purse I own because of LPM! I've given Feathers From My Nest to many a mom of a grad and have been happy to be introduced to Life Today through LPM.

    I knew many of the faces in your office because I've seen them in your videos!

    So thanks for the memories on my end and thank you all at Living Proof for serving Jesus.

    As one who has been on this journey with you about 12 of those years, I shake my head in pure gratitude to God for you, for your anointed ministry, for your dedicated, humble hearts.

    Truly, you woke me up to my beautiful God, and for that and so much more I am forever grateful.

    Happy Anniversary.

    Love you,

    I waited until I had time to watch all of these before I even started the first one. So glad I did.

    Thank you. Thank you, Beth…mine is a life that is changed. Thank you, LPM staff…while Beth is the one we all look to, she obviously knows how vital you all are to the ministry. May God bless each of you and your families.

    What fun you people are! I wish I could work there too, but you don't seem to need a violin instructor. Maybe I could just come bring coffee and play a few tunes someday. Thanks for the tour and all the blessings through the years, and happy 15th birthday!

    Maryellen says:

    You just made me weep and laugh at the same time. You see I believe God put it on my heart to right a devotional these past 6 months and so I did.
    In the meantime, I was given seed money for this ministry…and I kept saying "What ministry?" LOL! I had to open a checking account with a DBA name on it!

    Because we have the resources, we are self publishing…I was just gonna go to Kinko's with it and give it to the people I knew who were in need of it. God didn't tell me to get discovered, He just told me to write the book!
    Now we should have the actual book, in print, in a few weeks…all to the Glory of God!
    I have learned so much from you Beth and your ministry is big part of why I am so free!
    Thank you this morning. These videos are very confirming and I just love "meeting" the staff!

    Mary Beth says:

    Beth – thanks so much for giving us an opportunity to meet the folks behind the scenes at LPM. I've been facilitating your studies at my church here in Atlanta for almost ten years, and to finally have a chance to see the human hands doing God's work to get this all pulled together is such a treat. The Lord is using all of you in such a mighty way – using the unique gifts of each of you to change lives. To be even a small part of it as a facilitator is one of the great joys of my life.

    Blessings on your ministry, your friendships, your families and your lives – thanks, ladies (and Curtis!) !!

    We celebrate with you!

    Michelle says:

    Many years ago I completed my first Beth Moore study. It was Woman’s heart, God’s dwelling place. As I finished I sat on my back porch and sobbed uncontrollably. My husband came out worried something horrible had happened and said,”What on earth is wrong with you?” With all the emotion I felt as though it had just happened moments before I looked at him and said,”MOSES DIED, THAT’S WHAT!!!!” He thinks I am crazy anyway. Thus started my love affair with the Old Testament. To say I believe the Bible is the infallible, inerrant word of God is one thing, but to study and truly see Jesus smack dab throughout the Old testament and to see the uncontradictory connection has been transforming for me. I teach the Bible as Literature at my Public high school. Yes I did say public high school. What a glory to God that was. The class doesn’t make every year but what a great time we have when it does. My students leave saying the Old Testament isn’t nearly as boring as they thought. It sure isn’t and neither is our God.
    Thank you for persevering in your quest to bring God’s word to this hungry student. God bless and I will continue to lift LP up in my prayers.

    Anastasia says:

    Dear Beth, I have to share my favorite memory with you. I was a new Christian when I was first introduced to A Woman's Heart God's Dwelling Place. God loves me so much He wanted me to be grounded in truth.

    I saw you in what seems to be a very small venue now in New York, Times Square Church and until that point I thought I could not be a Christian woman, I had to imitate what I thought was a Christian woman, quiet, demure, behind the scenes and that was so not ever me. You have been the real thing and provided me with a role model to be who God made me to be, a cheerleader!

    I am bowled over that God would not let me get away with misery and provided an example early on of His unconditional love and joy unspeakable and full of GLORY! I get to be who He made me and enjoy loving Him. I am crazy about you and am excited to have all of eternity to chat with you and your staff about this ever surprising God who gave us Jesus to live and move and have our being in!

    Ditto to everyone else … I love you! 😉
