All Things Social Media

Good afternoon, Siestas!

I have a few housekeeping items that I wanted to share with all of you so I hopped on real quick.

Oh, but before I get into the details, could you please give the Lord some praise with us? We woke up to 50-degree weather this morning and it was glorious. We’ve been waiting for this day since March. In fact, we were so thrilled we ate lunch outside today. Thank you, Lord!

First off, we are all up in social media’s business. Doesn’t that make you so happy? Never do I want social media to replace my real life, face-to-face friendships, but let’s be honest, the times are changing and social media is big deal. Of course, we here on the blog are well aware of social media because well, that’s exactly what this blog is. Grin.

Secondly, as you can see we are having a few blog formatting issues. A few of you have brought it to our attention and we just want you to know that we’re working on it. Please be patient with us as we fix this minimal issue. We know it makes commenting a little more difficult because of where everything is placed, but know that we still have commenting capabilities, you just have to search a little harder for it. Y’all are always so sweet to bring things to our attention that we may not see right away!

Thirdly, and I’m not sure why we haven’t said anything up until now, but we have an official Living Proof Ministries facebook page. Can I get an amen? If you’re on facebook and want to join us just click here and “Like” our page. How easy is that? So far we’re just posting status updates and pictures, but it’s been fun learning all things “pages” on facebook. Help us spread the word and share the love.

Fourthly, thanks to our third item, we have now created a SSMTC event on our facebook page. Because we know the vast majority of you are traveling from all over the U.S., we decided this might be an easier way to connect with other Siestas coming from your state as opposed to putting your information out there on the blog. Please know that by “attending” this on facebook, does not mean you are registered. We still need you to register for the celebration on our website by clicking here, but this will be a wonderful avenue of connection with other Siestas. You have all the privacy control you want on facebook. Aren’t you so thankful for that? Click here to see the invite and attend! Yay, facebook events!

Fifth, and lastly, we now have a twitter account for Siestaville. Y’all, seriously, we’re going all out over here. So, if you have twitter and want to join in on the fun, just simply follow @Siestaville. Easy peasy! This account will be both fun and informative.

Well, ladies, that’s all I’ve got for today. Whew!

With all of that said, don’t forget to hug someone today. Or tell them you love them. Face to face. It’s just different and unexpected in this media crazed world. We love y’all!

    FYI – This post is showing just fine, Lindsee. Comment Identity blocks are all in order, the right side is normal. The home page was still the same.

    Thanks for all you do!! We appreciate it!

    There is no one around to hug. I like my neighbors, but might scare them a bit if I did. I could hug my one neighbor’s dog though, he is so sweet! 🙂

      Warm in Alaska says:

      No one around for another thirty minutes but two VERY spoiled dogs who’ve already been duly hugged today. I’m sending you a very big Siestaville hug right now, Michele! I always love to read your posts ~

    • 1.2

      Hug your neighbor’s anyway. If you scare them, you’ll have an excuse why you have to move south 🙂 I know how much you love the weather there! I’m telling you, you should try skiing. It totally changes how you feel about snow!

      • Michele says:

        I’ve tried snow skiing, I just MUCH prefer water skiing or jet skiing! I still feel the same way about snow – it’s fine to visit, but I don’t want to live in it. You can keep the layers and hot chocolate, I’ll take the warm beach any day!

        • Okay! Water skiing and jet skiing are a little too fast for me. This is why I don’t downhill ski. I just feel like I don’t have enough control, to some extent I’m at the mercy of gravity. I really don’t like that. It took me a while to embrace the little slight downhills while cross-country skiing.

    Psalms 40:1&2 NIV

    I waited patiently for the Lord;he turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire;he sat my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand.

    Well Miss Lindsee Lou; will you be traveling to the LPL events? I would love to hug your neck when Mama Beth travel to Texas, in the Mountains (a.k.a. Wyoming)

    It’s fun to have a FB page for SSMT celebration attendees. Cool idea ya’ll! 😉

    Will there be downloads available on the LifeWay page for the James study? I tried searching but didn’t have any luck. If not, any chance there will be in the future?

    • 7.1
      Lindsee says:

      Hi Annie, I’m not sure about that. But you might check the website again when the BIble study is released, which is Nov. 1. Also, you might call LifeWay or the Living Proof offices and they may know more. Thanks, sister!

      Guess what I bought to day at Lifeway in Oklahoma City, guess….BIBLE STUDY ON JAMES…oh, yeah! oh, yeah! I can hardly wait! James was there at the cross, He was Jesus’ brother and I know this study is going to be great. Melissa, added some really wonderful extras to the book as well. It’s not even November yet, so ladies go get your copy soon!

    Sitting on my front porch,
    drinking a nice, warm cup of Hazelnut coffee
    enjoying the autumn leaves and cool breeze,
    while I enjoy reading a Beth Moore book!

    And when I am tired at night,
    I will venture on my computer blog
    to find sweet words of my Siesta Sisters
    that encourage, up-lift to remind me
    of God’s love__ that reaches out to so many.

    Giving thanks!

    Kim Barclay says:

    Thanks for the reminder that “face to face” is the best way to develop a relationship! Even in this “cyberspace” world. I do appreciate all of the “cyber-chat” that comes from Living Proof. It is an encouragement to a weary soul, brings a smile to a “frowny” face, and oftentimes causes an outright belly-laugh! 🙂 Even though we probably will never meet in this world, thank you Beth, Lindsee, K-Mac, and all of the others involved whose names I don’t know for your outreach to women. And, Beth, thanks for being REAL! Love getting the “twitter” accounts of the Moore family…helps me realize that my house isn’t the only wacky one! 🙂 Love you all, and praying daily for Living Proof Ministries.

    Tatia Cook says:

    Ya’ll…I gotta confess…I’m a little bit afraid of Facebook! My husband’s an Army man, so I know that I could find friends I’ve lost touch with over the years. My teenagers would LOVE for me to get on Facebook, ‘cuz then THEY could get on Facebook 🙂 BUT, every time I’ve considered just getting on and trying it out, there’s been something in the news that has not been favorable. I’m serious – every. time. Is it really worth putting everything about yourself out there for anyone to see? I’m conflicted 🙂

    • 14.1
      Lindsee says:

      Tatia, the best part about facebook is you put out there what you want to put out there. You have complete control over information and privacy, which is a bonus. No pressure to join, though. That is totally up to you! Blessings, sister!

    • 14.2
      Michele says:

      You control how much information you share. Good rule of thumb – never put anything on facebook you wouldn’t want the whole world to see. Never put your birthday or personal contact information.

      You can create a fb account with your basic info – name, city, and your picture, that would allow you to connect with the people you choose. You can set your security settings so that people can search for you by name, but no one other than your friends can see anything else.

      Basically, view it as a tool for social interaction, but don’t trust it with anything valuable.

    I wanted to let you know how MANY times God has used you to touch my heart (your books have meant so much to me). I am currently being blessed by the study, “A Heart Like His” – I wish I could just do it continuously – over and over and over!!! God Bless you and your ministry and thank you for allowing God to use you for His glory!

    Nicola says:

    Hi Lindsee!
    I’m not that familiar with navigating facebook, however, I wondered if you could create a space for all the unfortunate Siestas who can’t come to the final celebration of SSMTC. Maybe if there were enough in a town we could get together with each other instead. Just a thought.

    Courtney Beth says:

    Lindsee, I love you, thanks for being such a blessing to all us Siestas!!! I love the inspirational Nicole!!! thanks for such a brilliant and timley idea for all of us who would love to be there, yet may not be in the right season for travelling so far in January!!! Love,Hugs&Prayers xoxo Courtney Bethany

    Thanks so much for all your hard work for us. We can see the fruit of it already. So fun to have a facebook page! You are right. The times, they are a changin’!
    Blessings to you. I’m so excited about the Celebration!!

    When I went to your Facebook group, I found the following message:

    This group is scheduled to be archivedOver the next few months, Facebook will be archiving all groups created using the old groups format. Would you like to continue being a member of this group?

    • 20.1
      Lindsee says:

      Hi Patrice! Did you click on the link from this blog? There is an old LPM group I think, and that might be the one you’re talking about. Try clicking on it directly from here to see if you get a different message. Hope that helps!

    Ruth says:

    Hi Lindsee. You are doing such a great job at getting everything Social coordinated and functional. How much do I LOVE seeing LPM on Facebook?? Thank you for your great work.
    I have a request/suggestion to pass on that MAY not exist for good reasons I need not know. But in case it’s a little thing that just got overlooked, I will throw it in the ring 🙂 How about this site,, having a favicon.ico file that would add that little icon next to the URL? (I know it’s the webmaster’s domain, but figured I might as well suggest it here.)
    It seems that this is the only bookmarked page in my browser that doesn’t have that little easy-to-recognize icon attached to it (and you all would have such a cute one!!)
    JUST a suggestion. Thank you ALL again for your accessibility to us Siestas and all the other women you minister to.

    • 25.1
      Lindsee says:

      Hi Ruth! That is a lot of lingo I am unfamiliar with, but am learning. Will definitely see what we can do! Thanks for the suggestion. Have a great Friday!

    CJ says:

    You are a much needed addition to LPM! Your cheerfulness fits right in, but your knowledge and understanding of all things social fit right in as well. LPM has always strived to be “one” with all groups of females, but seriously lacked the social aspect of technology. Beth is the queen of social, so it has been surprising that the “social” side of LPM has not expanded technically with the younger generation’s passion for social media!
    Keep up the GREAT work Lendsee!!
    Love the additional pictures and videos….it is GREAT to see the “realism and reality” of this ministry!

    Guess what was delivered today…the James study and 50 workbooks! HALLELUJAH! I have been anxiously waiting. I know God will teach me many wonderful lessons through this study, and we will grow closer. I just know it!
    Thanks Beth and LPM! I am SO EXCITED!

    I downloaded the James videos tonight. I am listening to session #1 and saw the pictures of Beth and her older sister…oh my goodness! The 3rd picture looks just like Amanda….I never noticed THAT much of a resemblance, but it is SO obvious!

    If you download the videos, make sure to download the Bonus 1….it is a treat!! Melissa and Beth are interviewed by Kelly Minter….Melissa is truly as gifted as her mom even though she probably doesn’t see herself this way! I look forward to seeing this study in the sessions and purchasing the book to see the insights Melissa has brought to this study. I have always liked her posts on the blog and look forward to her tidbits in this study.

    Don’t have a lot of healthy face to face relationships in my itty bitty teeny weeny little world up here in Idaho. I have a couple of people I’m ministering to at the moment, but nobody that I can honestly say has ministered to me lately around here. If it weren’t for social media I wouldn’t even have enough left to minister to these other gals, cause I’d be in just as bad of shape as they are! I love you guys! Thank you so much, Beth, for keeping this blog! I know you talked about dropping it at one point. Connecting with other siestas in the social networking world is literally the only reason I’m still hanging on. Love Michele and so many others who’ve encouraged me off and on since last summer! So hard, and still have a lot of difficult things to work with, and at this point the only real counseling I’m getting is through a closed group on facebook that is run by a Christian Counselor. So glad someone noticed me struggling and invited me to join! So wonderful to have a safe place to share!!!! Didn’t see that SSMTC thing on your facebook page. Not really that good at these things, for someone who obviously spends a ton of time on them!!!! I’ll have to look at that. I hope I’m on the right page. I know there was an unofficial sort of “Beth Moore” fan page or something at one point. Pretty sure I’m not on that.

    • 32.1
      Sandy Bowers says:

      The Facebook page is “Living Proof Ministries with Beth Moore”. Once you get to that page, go to the left hand side of the page and click on Events. It will bring up the SSMTC event. I hope you will be able to attend. Sounds like you could use a good dose of “siestahood”! Sending cyber-hugs!

      • Thanks. I got there through the link here. I’ll have to look for that “events” thing next time I’m on the page. I am coming! My family made huge sacrifices to make that possible for me, because my husband knows I’m desperate for some face-to-face with some truly supportive people!!! I’m so excited and ridiculously nervous at the same time. I’m sort of going blindly! I’m just counting on there being lots of taxis when I get there that know where the Omni is when I get there and none of them are like serial killers or anything since I’ll be all by myself. (I know. I watch too many crime scene shows!) I’m a small town girl, so that’s the only thing I really ever see of big cities like Houston, and I’ve heard big city is an understatement. City is Spokane, Washington to me, and BIG city is like Portland, Oregon, and those don’t even compare. This did not make me feel better at all. I’m pretty sure nothing is going to stay down for at least 24 hours before I leave. I don’t even want to talk about the way there or when I get there. I’m scared out of my ever-loving mind when I think about it, but I’m going. That’s how desperate I am!!!!

        • Sandy Bowers says:

          Oh Shellie, I’m so glad that you are going to be able to be there. I myself am not. (Big frown.) But when I do get to go (fingers crossed there will be another opportunity) I will be traveling by myself too. It’s a little intimidating…..but I’d be willing to bet when you make a connecting flight, there be other siestas on that flight! Be sure to wear something to identify yourself as a Siesta! Like maybe have a t-shirt made….or it sounds like a pink boa or pink scarf would help others identify you. You shouldn’t have trouble finding a taxi, but there might also be a sort of shuttle or limo service that runs to the hotels. I’d check with the hotel to find the easiest or least expensive way. You’ll be fine Siesta! And it sounds like this is something you really need! Sorry I won’t be there to meet ya. Big hugs and good luck!

    Mary in MN says:

    Hi Lindsee,
    Question for you regarding Siesta Celebration? For those of us who have not logged in but are now working diligently to memorize 20 verses…YIKES! Can we come to the celebration? I would not want to come and find out I’d broken the rules, that would just be awful. If the answer is no I will be sad, but understanding. Just committing the scriptures to memory are a great blessing, as you and our dear Siesta Mama and other Siesta’s know. Blessings to you!

    • 33.1
      Beth says:

      Hi, Mary! I’m so proud of you for working so hard at it! I’m going to ask you to document as many of your verses as you can since I made it a requirement from the first of the year. It wouldn’t be fair to the others if I let that slide too terribly much. It would take less than an hour to do nearly all of them. Log in as many as you can and there is grace for the rest. COME!!!! Please come! See you in January!

    Cheryl says:

    I have just completed viewing the James Study and most of the homework…I am in awe as to how to respond to this study. I own about 10 Beth Moore Studies- and jump up and down when I complete each study, I find myself babbling over them and giving my cheerleading yells! This study has stopped me in my tracks…I feel waves of The Inspired Word of God, washing over me. It is as if the Holy Spirit is under my skin. The depth of this study with the addtion of Melissa’s comments is outstanding! I praise God for how He is using Beth & Melissa to take women hungering for a fresh Word from God to that place. I am finding “that place” to be where God is now at work in me! Thank you for this study! May God Bless, Cheryl

    As I read your comments, all I kept thinking was there was way more work, then reward.

    I am happy for all who are pleased with the new technology, but I kept thinking who is going to have time to update all these sites. That will be a full time job all by itself!

    How can we be anything but patient – you poor girl are having to keep everyone and each system a ‘go’ and do your job too! Thank you for your dedication to getting all of us, your audience, in touch and together!

    Please have a large cup of java on me, and sit with your feet up or atleast your fingers down for 7 whole minutes to enjoy the day that the Lord provided 🙂

    I love face book….I have followed Beth Moore and many other Christian women on FB…many of my church friends post encouraging scripture daily and Christian music videos, as do I…also I only have female friends on my FB…I don’t feel the need to have a man’s opinion on my status . I am going through a divorce after 20 years and I find FB to be my Best friend right now! also I do stay connected to my kids…the oldest two do not live at home , so I am part of their daily lives because of FB… have also meet friends on the So Long Insecurity FB page…from across the World…

    “Screwtape Letters” by CS Lewis…ever read these? You talk about something that will make you think…WOW! I started reading this book today and am already impressed by the impact it has….seeing things from the enemy’s perceived perspective has put me back in the world of reality at how he truly does work and desire humanity’s destruction. It is incredible and powerful….I would advise others to consider reading it.

    Hello siestas!

    This has absolutely nothing to do with this post!

    I need someone (Beth and all of you!) to tell me if practicing yoga is demonic?! I am a beginner and ran across Brooke Boon’s Holy Yoga. It looked amazing. Then, I read an opinion by the pastor at Mars Hill in Seattle who said anything to do with yoga is demonic.

    Can I have some scriptural based feedback please?

    Thank you so much. This is the first place I thought to go!
