Living Proof Live – Colorado Springs Recap

UPDATE FROM BETH ON JULY 5th: Hey, you sweet things! Thinking of you so much. This is my first day back in the office at Living Proof Ministries since our time together. I flew to Atlanta right after we said good-bye then served there throughout Sunday then came home and took a few days off. (Thank you, 4th of July!) I told my beloved coworkers that, as long as I have clarity of mind, I will remember our time together in Colorado Springs. God marked my heart with you. I nearly bawled as I watched the recap and was deeply moved to see a comment from one of you who lives in the city saying God opened up the sky and let it rain soon after. What grace of our Savior. I want to let you know that I kept my word to you and, with great joy, just signed a check to Samaritan’s Purse. I don’t want to draw attention to it in the larger public but I do INDEED want you who check in around here to know. I didn’t dare hold off any longer than my first day back because…


What I owe you now is a debt of love (Romans 13:8) and I will gladly pay it for many years to come. STAY IN THE WORD, SISTERS! I’ll see all of you at the Throne and perhaps some of you another time when we flip open our Bibles together. I am honored to be your servant. I love you so. 


The rest of this post is the original one that our wonderful Lindsee wrote. If you haven’t seen the recap, DO IT!



Siestas! Here is this weekends recap video. We have already heard from so many of you that were able to attend the conference this weekend and how the Lord spoke so personally to you and we thank the Lord so much for that. He alone is worthy of praise! In the middle of much chaos, He is sovereign and able to speak truth, speak loud and bring healing.

On Friday, we shared with you that Samaritan’s Purse was going put all of their donations this weekend toward wildfire relief efforts in Colorado Springs. I know you’ll rejoice with us when I tell you that this weekend attendee’s raised $85, 591! Ladies, your generosity is incredible. Thank you so much! May God be praised!

    I was so incredibly blessed to be able to attend! Oh, it was powerful & inspiring! I love learning from Beth so much! I really came home with knowledge I couldn’t wait to spill out all our my husband.First thing Sunday morning I sat down with him at breakfast and took out my abundant notes. He smiled, maybe mostly because of my own excitement & not that I kept saying and…and..AND… It was a joy to stand and raise my voice with thousands of women & feel connected to each other. LPL you BLESSED us this weeken. Thank you so very much!

    P.S. Is there anyway for the siestas who took a photo with Beth after the conference to get a copy of their photo? It was so great to see each other!

      Thanks Beth and the whole team for making this one of the most powerful conferences for me. We were going to change our tickets and cancel because of fear of the fires but we knew we were supposed to go. God truly has finished things in me that have gone on for almost 10 years. Praise Jesus I’m not where I was and also he is starting things that I’m scared about yet hopeful. He truly does bring beauty from the ashes that were in my life 10 years ago…Oh how awesome He is! The encouragement I received this weekend was what I needed! thanks and God bless!

    I love this video:) I was praying for you all to be fully filled with the Spirit, sensing His presence with you all there….I have something I want to share with you all too. I found out this afternoon that my in vitro was SUCCESSFULL (blessed by the Lord!) and I am pregnant again!!!! All that is left to find out now is if it is one or two babies:) Love it! Love you all on this blog so much! Praise HIM!:)

    My goodness! I was looking forward to this event for so long, and was totally and completely blessed to attend. My sister in law and I drove from NM to be there and we both left with the feeling of, “that. was. for. us.”

    there are a few things God really spoke to me about, for one I have felt called to write a book. I have felt like I wasn’t ready or mature enough to do it yet, but I felt God telling me that He is going to do a work in me through the process, so no more excuses.

    I also felt a lot of what was spoken was for my marriage, and I came home with an eagerness to share it all with my hubby. He was so receptive and curious, and I truly felt breakthrough for us in some areas while I was there and when I got home last night.

    So now it’s time for my crazy God moment:

    During praise and worship on Saturday (We were singing “Lord you are good”) I looked around at all these ladies and the worship team and saw joy and freedom in their worship. It dawned on me then that being a Christian is supposed to be joyful!

    I have gone through some rough patched in the last couple years and had some big disappointments associated with being HEAVILY involved in ministry and my relationship with God had begun to feel really somber. When I had that epiphany, it’s ok to be joyful!, I honestly felt a weight lift off of me.

    So then we are leaving the arena and two ladies in front of us stopped to hold the door because they saw we were close behind. I looked up and smiled and said “thanks,” as is pretty normal for me. Then as we are walking one of the ladies comes back to me and says, “I just needed to tell you… when you smiled back there your whole face lit up and you just looked so happy!” and even though it seemed a little out of the blue, it meant something to me. I felt God in that moment saying “I’ve restored your joy.”

    So there we have it, he brought the sadness to a FINISH and He’s now beginning a new thing in my life called “being happy with Him.”

    So grateful!

    I really enjoyed the Living Proof conference in Colorado Springs. It was amazing. I learned to keep on achieving things in life and to not give up. One of my favorite parts of the conference was when we sang Our God is Greater. That is one of my favorite songs. Thank you so much Beth for all that you do. I hope to see you again next year.

    Alice Laswell says:

    I am the Women’s ministry leader at our church. Our family has been so busy, that I had already spoken to a couple of ladies to take over for me. Our first point being ” Every start has a corresponding finish, I began to ask myself if I should continue as women’s ministry leader.
    The four ladies in my car, immediately drove to my favorite Chinese food restaurant after the event.
    After we ate, I jokingly encouraged the others read their fortune cookies. They read…then came my turn. It read “Anyone can “start,”but only a thoroughbred will “finish”. It was written with the quotations exactly as I have sent it. I didn’t get a fortune…I got a prophecy!! An answer to where I was to be. This thoroughbred is finishing my work with women’s ministry. Thank you Lord for opening my eyes…and to you Beth Moore.

    Joni Leahy says:


    This weekend was AMAZING! I wish I could tell you how LPL’s have ministered to me over the years! The KC event in 2005 God moved in my life in a huge way!
    I had been praying for God to show up and speak to me about a very specific area He has been moving me to over the last few years. I have not been cooperating…I bave been telling Him, I am not a writer and He ahs the wrong person, but this weekend starting with your opening prayer, God started speaking…it’s time to finish writing my story. I was feeling so foolish, I had talked about it a frew years ago and started working on it, but I got distracted and then you brought up that scripture…the whole weekend was like that.
    I love how God works…I don’t feel beat up, I feel completely loved. I am asking for disscipline and for God to remove distractions.

    My precious daughter-in-law came with me, the mama of my 3 grandchildren…I can totally relate to your JOY!!

    Thank you for all that you bring and give; for your obedience, authenticity…thank you to Travis and the team! They ROCKED!!

    God bless you and your precious family and LPM team!

    Ruined for Him, Joni

    Hi Beth and friends,

    I really appreciate you Beth. I’ve read some of your books and Bible studies. I appreciate your genuineness, your love for the Lord and people.

    My friend and I went to your conference in Colorado Springs this weekend. We enjoyed the worship and your messages. I bought some of your little books, the devotional audio and Bible memory verses.

    My friend has been called to be a missionary. She’s been on a couple of mission trips, has had some dissappointments. The call kinda died in her a bit. But her call was reawakened this weekend at the conference in Colorado Springs. She wants to finish what the Lord started in her. She’s 28 yrs. old.

    My friend and I both live in Denver. Both of us have felt convicted to memorize scripture and hide God’s word in our hearts, so I’m going to try and start memorizing verses that I bought from your booth.

    I taught Navajo, Apache and Hopi kids at two Christian schools in Arizona for 10 years.

    Now I teach small reading groups of kids in the public school in Denver. I try to be a light for Jesus to the teachers and staff. I do miss teaching the Bible to kids, though. I’ve had a chance to witness to teachers and staff a bit.

    I’m starting to read some of your little books. I want to search the scriptures more, experience more of God’s love, and so love others more.

    I don’t know why I’m telling you all these things, but I hope it’ll be an encouragement to you.

    God Bless you Beth and friends!

    Joan says:

    This was my first time seeing you Beth in person. I have done several of your studies and loved each one even after saying the previous one was was the best.
    I was so grateful you still came in spite of the fires here in Colorado.
    You heart of humility and passion for Jesus ministered to me in ways you will never know. When you sat at the end of the stage and shared your time with your inlaws on the anniversary of the loss of their son, it was powerful. Compassion exudes from you sweet sister in Him. I have been journaling as I do daily since I was saved 26 years ago and it seems like I am reading the word “FINISH” in every portion of scripture or devotionalI read. My heart’s desire is to FINISH the work He has planned for me. My heart is in tuned to His desire for me and I know I am forever changed.
    In His lovem and much gratitude,

    SUBJECT: Target on my back!

    The Lord was painfully good. Friday evening I felt like I had a target on my back and Beth hit the bullseye. I began an inner healing prayer ministry 2 years ago and it has gone really well but I lost my passion and was discounting the impact it is having. I was so convicted by the Follow Him = Follow thru! And all of my life works have a beginning and an end and my end of this one has not come yet!! And my giftedness can exceed my godliness at times so a fresh reminder to keep my priorities. Our ministry really does make Jesus bigger and bigger so THANK YOU again for putting words to my process that at times I don’t even realize I’m experiencing the very thing you are saying. GOD IS SOOOO GOOD! Bless you and thank you for being so sensitive to our disaster.

      I would love to hear more about your healing ministry you started…..

        Hi RaeAnn,

        I would be glad to add you to our email list that is just for times and locations of our events. They are usually at the Jericho Center, twice a month just from 6:30 – 8:30pm but we are taking a break till September so send me your email address and I can also let you know more about it. It is actually Listening and Healing Prayer. We are called His Gathering.

    Amanda Ostermiller says:

    I am so thankful that I was able to attend and stand shoulder to shoulder with my sisters! The Lord was so faithful this weekend! I was also blessed to have been at the last LPL event in Colorado Springs. This event brought full circle a particular trial that I was in the midst of at the event four years ago! I love our Jesus, and how He works, don’t you? I am in awe at His love for us. The enemy tried his best to keep us from gathering, and praise God we prevailed! Thank you to the Living Proof team for another amazing event, and for bringing such a mighty WORD to a state in such dispair. I want to add one more thing, the last part of the Saturday session, when you had us stand together and go through the little prayer and encourage eachother to fight the good fight…..POW-ER-FUL!! Oh, how He loves us so! Oh how He loves us!

    I’m so glad I was able to spend the weekend worshipping with you all in Colorado Springs. Very powerful! My spirit was lightened and my soul was blessed by the music and God’s Word shared by Travis and Beth. Thanks to everyone on the team!

    Is it possible to get a copy of the opening session’s responsive reading? I would love to have a copy to keep in my Bible.

    Connie Hein says:

    Dear Beth,
    I was not able to attend the conference on CO Springs as i had planned on for so many months. Our 32 year old daughter Angie died on June 15th and we are still smack dab in the middle of shock and greif. My friend that was there said it was amazing as always. We have driven great distances to get to one of your conferences! She told me about many of the things you shared with the crowd of hurting CO women. It soothed my soul to hear the message you had for my sweet friend who has mourned the loss of our daughter with us. She needed a Word from God and got one through you. Please pray for Ed and I and our family to be strong and get through this trial. Thank you Beth! Connie

      Jodi says:

      My dear sister Connie,
      I read your comment as to why you weren’t able to attend the event in CO Springs. Please know that I am praying for you and your husband. I am so sorry for your loss and cannot imagine the pain you are going through. When imagining what a fellow believer is experiencing during a trial in their life I always come full circle with a heart of thankfulness. I am so thankful that our God gives us strength during these times and that He gives us a rock to cling to. My heart goes out those who have not yet found that gift. I don’t know how they make it. I am rejoicing that you have that rock and I will continue to pray that you cling to it and fine the strength and healing He promises and provides.
      Your sister,

      Oh, Connie, I am slack jawed and so sorry. As a mother to a daughter the exact same age as your beloved Angie and one who knows that your adult child is still your baby, I cannot fathom the pain and shock you are going through. I ask our crucified, risen, and reigning Lord Jesus Christ to be blatant and miraculous and outlandish in the way He brings you and your family comfort, healing, and ultimately redemption. I care so much, Sister.

    Watching this video puts a fresh prayer in my heart tonight for those who have lost so much in the past week. Thank you for going to Colorado and spreading the rain of God’s grace on all those who attended.

    Polly says:

    This weekend was an important time away for my daughter and me. Her husband died tragically after a 12-hour illness about 18 months ago, and she’s raising their two little boys, ages 6 and 5, according to how she and her husband had prayed and dreamed together. My husband kept the boys for the weekend so we could come together (from Denver).

    The closing moments were sacred and memorable to us, as we looked into each other’s eyes and, with tears falling, encouraged each other to FINISH WELL. If there is any way we could have a copy of the words we said to each other, we’d love to keep those important words for a lifetime.

    • 19.1
      Beth says:

      My dearest Polly, what anguish your daughter and all of you have endured in this last eighteen months. Oh, how I pray that God will continue to bring aid and healing affection from every conceivable angle as they (and you) continue to put one foot in front of the other. I am so sorry for your suffering and humbled that God would allow me to serve the two of you last weekend. I will bear this LPL on my heart for many years to come.

    Tamara says:

    I was really touched last weekend. As I was driving Friday I kept asking God, “what in the world am I here on earth for, I haven’t accomplished anything big in my life,” and I even told God, “Life would be so much better if you would just start talking to me again” Then there were the questions of what have I done to silence God for such a long time. I was in tears throughout the whole scripture reading Friday night. Just knowing how precious I am to God and how much He loves me. I would love to get a hold of those verses. Beth, you spoke right to me. Thank you for allowing yourself to be used of God.

    I just wanted to share a little about what God spoke through this time with Beth in Colorado Springs. “Finishing” was a very significant topic to me as I struggled deeply with depression last year and the root was in the fact that I never followed through, I have given up on many en devours, I was disappointed in myself and began to believe the lie I was nothing but a failure. When 2012 came I took the chance for a new beginning and asked the Lord for a word to define my year and the word He gave me was “Awaken” from the Chris Tomlin song. I decided to train for a full marathon and knew with the Lord’s help I could follow through. There were so many times I didn’t feel like it or wasn’t inspired, but on May 5th I ran 26.2 miles and I know the process has taught me lesson upon lesson. Beth’s message just confirmed this to me, but part of my struggle has been with my relationship with my mom through it all as well. She is the one who paid for me to go to the conference and although my life is changing I still felt like that part was still nagging and lagging. Today we couldn’t keep the front up anymore and we had an intense and emotional talk. We prayed and I feel like that stronghold over and against our relationship has broken. I was desperate for this restoration, because who doesn’t need their mommy (even at 31) but I have been so afraid it couldn’t. I believe God has brought a finish to this hard time and I am so grateful for His grace and faithfulness and for carrying things through to completion.
    Thank you Beth for serving our area and keeping to what the Lord had laid on your heart. I am sure I am not the only one who was challenged, blessed, or changed. I wanted to wave to you, because I feel like I know you…but I have to remind myself I don’t. Sometimes I wish so much I did, but I realized that I do think I love Jesus in you and that makes me so excited about how wonderful I know He is.
    Thanks again…

      Beth says:

      Ashley, thank you for writing this to me. God did something huge to open that door back up between you and your mom for some authentic communication. YES, a 31 year old needs her mother. I pray that He who BEGAN a good work between you last weekend will ever so faithfully continue to complete it. He loves you so. I am honored to serve you.

    Stacy says:

    I flew to Colorado with my best friend. We laughed with you and cried with you…so touching. Thank you so much for a comment your made…”Don’t let comfort get in the way of your calling.” I’ve known my calling for a long time but was too scared of change. I am still scared of change but you have inspired me to chase my dreams. You have inspired me through the word of God to make it complete, done, finished. I have to also thank the worship team…WOW! Your voices are a blessing.

    Wendy says:

    Beth ,
    God is so amazing! Your message was such a declaration of what God is doing in my life… “Follow Me = Follow Through”. You stated you would like to hear from us about our story… so here is how your message impacted me.
    God is putting me back together..restoring me… for a “fire” has begun something.. and God is not finished!
    The “fire” for me is not the actual forest fire but the unraveling of my 21 year marriage to a deceptive man masquerading as a christian husband and father. “He is using God to accomplish himself” and “what God started in the spirit, he is continuing in the flesh” are two great quotes that you shared with us that really sheds light to the spiritual abuse/manipulation he claimed within our marriage covenant.
    Therefore, I have stood up to this deception and masquerading after being breathed back to life by God and am working through the layers of financial,psychological, emotional,sexual as well as the spiritual abuse that were in the darkness until God brought them into the light!
    STANDING UP to this abuse is about breaking a strong hold of what I believe is four generations of abuse on my ex-husbands family line. This journey is what God has CALLED me to in my walk with Him so together my children as well as myself can heal! My desire is to continue to cooperate with God and His FREEDOM He has for me so my children will know the one true God… the God who brings “beauty out of ashes!”
    So, 20 months ago I began a “long obedience in the same direction” of trusting God with the unseen. Believing that I am the daughter of the King and I am worth it! I gain my strength from God to go ” in/through/in/through the multiple issues I need to “unpack” for my healing so we four can all become whole in God! Times can be quite heavy, yet my dependency on God is… “Follow Me = Follow Through”.
    Your ministry has impacted and prepared me for breaking this generational strong hold of abuse by teaching the word through all your studies,your speaking events and devotionals I was so fortunate to have saturated myself with! Your devotional book “Praying Gods Word Day By Day” reads on day March 30th;

    A prisoner unaware is the kind of prisoner most vulnerable to her captors, the easiest prey there is.
    Isaiah 13:11
    God has lifted the veil of abuse in my marriage/family and He has set the captives free!
    Breaking the curse through His hand and finishing well is what I seek from this day forward!
    Thank you friend for how you have impacted my life and family!
    All divine works have intended completions!

    What a blessing to be able to attend the LP and Beth Moore conference this past weekend. I learned so much from hearing the Holy Spirit speak through Beth. When I got home, my kids(4 and 6) want to know everything she was said. I love sharing with them how God showed up this weekend. They also asked it I video taped my hotel room for them to see:) So funny what kids think of.

    And THAT, right there is a glimpse of HEAVEN! Forever and ever AMEN!!

    His Word ministered to my soul, this weekend.

    So much was working at keeping me from going… have no idea. But I needed to be there…and HE knew that! His watch care and stubborn love got me where I needed to be, so I could and WOULD hear the Word I HAD to hear.

    To God be all the Glory!

    Jaclyn says:

    It is a privilege to be united with our church/community ladies in Living Proof Live in Co Spgs. Psalm 25:11-12 reminded me of the need to follow near our Lord. The Journey took me there again, to be humbled by my sin and to seek to avoid dishonoring HIS name which covers me because of my many sins. 12 Who are those who fear the Lord?
    He will show them the path they should choose.
    We who fear the authority of our Lord, are shown the path through the firey trials. When we obey-even when the way is unclear (as it is personally demands faith to step out on the path HE provided. Our faith guides us with the follow through of obedience. We always come to the place of rest when we follow HIM. We are able to be still and know our God responding in joyful worship.
    I am thankful for the way God works through Beth. Personally, her obedience to lead guided me to God’s way to grieve, just before I needed to know. I was in the Breaking Free study with some of my church ladies, March 2003. I was able to get caught up (being a teacher and behind having done report cards the week before our Spring Break). The lesson on grieving was a new concept to me and God worked through it to help me prepare a prayer for families soon to loss a loved one as the war in Afghanistan began at the end of that week. The prayer God guided me to write, was for my family. Although our son was in the Marines stationed state side, the middle child was killed in a car accident while driving her sister from their colleges to meet me for dinner. Learning to grieve the past losses, prepared me to grieve the worst loss of my life. God orchestrated it, but by following HIM others are able to encourage our follow through. Thank you Beth!
    I have grown through my losses with the help of Kay Author’s God guidancefrom As Silver Refined. Each loss has built on the previous faith to keep HIS way clear through the fire, pain and disabling burden of emptiness only our Lord can fill – in HIS time-with joy, peace and purpose.
    The Colorado Springs event marked the end of my teaching career, and the beginning of my year of Jubilee. June 28th finished the move out with help from our tiny church. My loaded car waited while I attended the conference as I alone moved from southern Colorado north to reclaim our family land to make my only work becoming sole manager of my mother’s affairs and care manager, likely only occational care provider, as Alzheimer’s takes her from this life. As the last 2 of our family of 4, we will soon celebrate her 89th birthday by getting on the train to take her back to her birthplace to see other family.
    His divine works complete our life work, praise to all who prove HIS life is in us.

    Melonie, Denver says:

    Wow, what an incredibly powerful time! Thank you to all who helped make this special weekend possible! The Lord showed up with a Word and healing took place for me and many others. I felt the Lord gave Beth such specific words for the weekend and they were communicated with sensitivity and compassion. Thank you Beth!!!!

    The question was asked: Is there anything that has been settled this weekend? Has God given you a new finish and what is it?

    The thought of God bringing beauty out of the ashes and the fires bringing a new start to a work of God resonated with me. The Lord has recently asked me to lay down my women’s ministry leadership position. It has felt like death to me. I love women and I love women’s ministry. He has called me to be tucked into a season of humility serving my 94 year old-mother-in-law who has Alzheimer’s. The Lord has shown me that my women’s ministry continues, it is just down sized to one woman whom God loves so very much. The words Beth shared about finishing well spoke deeply to my heart. I want to finish well in this work He has called me to along with helping my mother-in-law finish well. I know the Lord has called our family to love her into the gates of Heaven. As one friend phrased it “What a privilege to be with someone in their last days on earth!”

    Certain phrases/thoughts Beth shared over the weekend stood out to me. Some of them were: “long obedience in the same direction,” perseverance in the middle of the work (certainly we all lose our motivation in the middle of a work), desire gets us there and discipline gets er done, and COMPLETE without the L is compete–God calls us to be comrades , not competitors. There is so much more I could write, but will not for the sake of space!

    I know that the Lord will continue to unpack His Truths in my heart over the course of the next few weeks. Not only did the Truth bring Light, but the worship was incredible as well. I am eternally grateful God allowed me to attend with my mom and a friend. We had some wonderful time of sharing together as well as receiving. THANK YOU SO MUCH!

    Loved being with Beth all all the ladies over the weekend. The most powerful part was at the end when we spoke the words Beth gave to our ‘sister’. Is there anyway I can get a copy of those words? I have a feeling we need to tell that to each other more often to remind each other to keep the faith in the midst of life! Thanks to Beth and the whole team for coming to COS at such a special time for our community!

    Great job on the video once again. I am always so blessed watching the women worship and respond. Loved this song….it has been a favorite of mine since it’s release. Once the word of GOD is out there only good can come!! Also so GLAD the evacuees could get in for free…..also grateful for the wonderful donations that were made….including LPL’s. I was initially concerned that the conference would people out of the hotel rooms they had to move into…Oh me of little faith…I am sure God provided abundantly. I heard yesterday the fire was 45% contained…haven’t heard today’s report. Father we thank you for loving these people beyond their wildest imaginations.

    Jesus will indeed bring beauty from our ashes…in many, many ways for the ladies of Colorado Springs. We have already seen how our community can pull together, with the Samaritan’s Purse contributions, but also with ONE MILLION pounds of food being donated to Care n Share this week. Often times it takes a crisis to pull us out of our comfortable little worlds and allow us to see the larger world of those we are called to minister to. Beth, thank you for your inspiration this weekend. We are SO GLAD you came. Light was brought to our week of darkness. My prayer is that those of us who attended will continue to bring light to the darkness in our city…that we will know HE IS GOD OF THIS CITY…that we will proclaim this wherever He has planted us and we will show that “Follow Me=Follow Through” in our homes (that was MY aha!), in our churches, in our places of employment, with our children, with our husbands, and with our walk with and FAITH IN our God. To Him be the praise! Thanks Beth!

    I had not planned on going, but plans changed just before the weekend and I was able to attend and bring a guest on Saturday. Thank you for sharing about your sis, we both sat there in tears with little faith, but increasing hope because we were in the eye of the storm you just went through. We were so blessed to be able to peel ourselves away from it, even if just for a few hours, to worship & hear from Him. The message spoke to me in so many different ways. Thank you.

    I had such an amazing time at the Colorado Springs event. I had not originally planned to attend, but God someone in my church knew I needed to go.

    My husband is an alcoholic, and doesn’t know the Lord. I became a believer in 2002 and have not looked back. Being in an unevenly yoked marriage has been difficult and in the last month even more so. How do you react when your 11 year old daughter tells your sister, “I know he’s my dad, but I wish that my mom would just leave him.” I began wondering if I was doing the right thing by staying with him and if it was worth putting my kids though all of this. Thankfully, I have a great friend who is discipling me and she told me that if I were to leave it would only make it easier for my children to leave any relationship when the road was rocky.(It is important for you to know that my husband isn’t physically abusive.) God has time and time again revealed to me that I’m not to leave my husband, and this weekend was no different…FINISH IT! So, I will continue to run the race on the path that he has placed me on, and my kids and I will continue to be a light unto his feet and continue to pray for his salvation without ceasing. We have had a long road behind us, and may have an even longer one in front of us, but I know that God is in control and that not even this situation is to big for Him. My husband, may never come to Christ (I pray that is not the case!), but God can use me and my live to help transform the life of someone else.

    Thank you for the encouragement this weekend and for giving me the opportunity to be an encourager at this event. I will never forget praying with the women I was able to pray for and will never forget the feeling of their tears on my arms and chest. Their tears remind me just how important it is to have those close sisters in Christ who are walking the road with you. Thank you again for your words of encouragement!

    Your Sister in Christ,

      Terrina, God bless you for your obedience. No one knows what God has in store for you and your husband and family, but we know it will be the best for all of you (Rom 8:28). “To those who are faithful, you show yourself faithful (Ps 18:25).”

      In April 2010, I decided to divorce my alcoholic husband but God asked me to stay. All my family, including our 2 daughters, encouraged me to go but I obeyed our Lord and stayed, thinking that I would at least be true to my marriage vows and be around to bury him. Then followed my season of testing – almost a whole year. I learned who God was and I learned to lean on Him. The hardest part was coming home every day to see my husband in a drunken stupor. I’d drive around praying that the Holy Spirit would remove any hurt, anger, disgust or resentment from my heart. And every day, without fail, He answered me, so that all I saw when I got home was the husband I loved. On March 8, 2011, he went into rehab. On January 1, 2012, he accepted Christ as his Savior. He is a new man, I am a new woman, and we have a new marriage. Praise. His. Holy. Name.

      God is working. Be encouraged, Terrina.

      I’ll keep you in my prayers.

      With love,

    I don’t think I have the words that can quite describe the way I am feeling right now. The conference was Amazing. Thanks Beth, to you, and your wonderful team!!! God has re-ignited this woman’s heart and it feels amazing.

    Kathleen says:

    I don’t know where to begin to thank everyone involved with the Colorado Springs event! As an evacuee I attended the event alone through the gracious invitation put forth to those of us impacted by the fire. I was met at the entrance with a hug and a much needed bottle of water. My emotions from the week had been bottled up and I was afraid to open the floodgate. I took a seat away from the crowd and minutes before it began a woman approached me and asked if I would like to sit with her and her friends. I agreed. Before the worship began I asked God to help me have “right” emotions, I was afraid of turning into a puddle. Every verse displayed, every song of worship, was a confirmation of God’s unfailing presence in every circumstance of life. When evacuees were asked to stand an audible gasp came from the women who invited me to sit with them, as I rose from my chair. Beth’s prayer was so powerful, I was strengthened. The love I received from my sisters in Christ was awesome. One of them invited me to stay with her! The message confirmed many things God had spoken to me that very day. Matthew 25:35-45 came to my mind as I left that evening; I was thirsty and you gave me water, hungry and you fed me, a stranger and you invited me in! Bless all of you!

      Beth says:

      Oh, my gracious, Kathleen, I am nearly taken aback by the way Christ revealed Himself to you. We are so honored to have served you last weekend and we care so much. We who are observing you simply in the words you’ve written here can already see beauty emerging from ashes. He will use every bit of what you’re going through to give comfort and hope to others. People need authentic compassion and empathy in Christ so very much.

    Thank all of you who allow the Lord to use you as His insturments. The weekend was very uplifting and convicting for me as I am struggling to lose some weight. I know I have not followed thru with the direction the Lord is prompting me.
    I attended the conference with my two sisters it was such a wonderful growing time for all of us.
    God bless you in your ministery

    What a powerful blessing Living Proof Ministries is. Your unity resonates the love of Jesus Christ for His bride in a profound way. From the message by Beth, to the entire worship team lead by Travis, to every warm heart that prayed for the event and every soft hand that lifted up another Christ was exalted. Thank you!!

    Kelly Garcia says:

    The prayer with a sister at the end was truly powerful! It was amazing how my words seemed to resonate from me to her, then they resonated from her to me…I have never felt the Holy Spirit work so profoundly through two people (and she was a complete stranger – before that moment!)as those words were spoken to each other. Praying with each other comes close, speaking truth to each other is heavenly!!

    Lynda Rickey says:

    Beth and LPM, Looks like you all had a great word from the Lord. I’m so glad that you were able to minister to the women in Colorado Springs. I will continue to pray for all those affected by the fires. I know that the Lord has a plan for each and every person. Priveleged to know such humble servants of Jesus. Love you!

    Sarah says:

    I attended the Living Proof Live Conference this past weekend in Colorado Springs and God spoke a powerful word to me. My husband is a pastor and we have endured a sifting over the past 6 months that I never dreamed was possible. I won’t give any details, but suffice it say that we had a major problem with some people at our church. It was so bad that it caused my husband to despair even of life.

    I had a vision while in prayer this past February that my husband and I were in a gladiator arena and we alone were in the ring fighting two huge lions. My husband and I were very small and all we had were shields. The stands were filled with lions, too, but all of them were tame and licking their paws, watching. They were tame for the moment, but I was very aware that at any moment any one of the lions watching from the stands could become angry and join the two huge lions fighting us. We fought the two huge lions out of the arena, finally and barely, when a huge gate came down. This really infuriated the lions and they were just on the other side of the gate roaring and clawing trying to get back in. I looked at my husband and said, “Quick! Let’s get out of here NOW! It’s only a matter of minutes before they’re able to tear the gate down. Let’s go and never come back!” My husband quietly said, “No, we’re staying right here.” I was indignant. I thought, “You are crazy. I don’t want to do this anymore. It doesn’t make any sense.” Then Jesus spoke to my heart and said, “I Am The Gate and I will not fail.” Since February I have struggled with staying in ministry. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve prayed, “Please, Lord, give us something else to do. Even if it’s just for a little while. I can’t stand doing this anymore. I went in to this in the first place to help people.”

    I wanted to be a person standing on the edge of the cliff waving a red flag at all the people running headlong over the cliff to their death into hell. I wanted to be the person to tell them that Jesus is the Way. I wanted to go with the Shepherd as he left the 99 and help Him seek out the lost people. I did not envision myself staying behind in the sheep pen warding off the other sheep from trying to kill me! You asked this weekend if there was anything in our lives that had ever just burned down to the ground. I guess I subconsciously had always believed that Christians fundamentally wanted to reconcile with each other. This experience has proved my belief to be false and it hurt me so deeply to realize it that I wanted to give up altogether. My ideal burned to the ground.

    Anyway, this weekend Jesus confirmed to me that I am right where He wants me. He challenged me to believe that He is The Gate and that He will not fail. He told me to finish the work even if I don’t think the work is worth doing. I no longer consider my life precious, but only want to finish the task God has given me. Thank you for coming to Colorado Springs.

    Beth thank you for your submission to the Lord, allowing him to work through you so powerfully. My mom and I attended last weekend and we had an amazing time. We came to town from Albuquerque and almost didn’t come because of the fires, but how I am glad God pushed us on to go. I would write for days if I tried to share the WORD I received from our sweet Lord. But in a nutshell the motto, Follow me= follow through will stay with me always and at the forefront of mindin this season. I know specifically what He wants me to follow through on and I really was trieing to quit it before last weekend. Thankfully I have a new resolve and the power of his Spirit within me to see it through. To see it through to His intended goal is completed in my life. Thank you is too small a word, but with all my heart, thank you.
