Living Proof Live: Charleston, West Virginia – Simulcast Recap!

Hello, ladies! I hope it has been a wonderful Monday morning for you all so far. Yesterday a sweet friend whispered to me at church while I was singing, “The joy of the Lord is your strength!” And all the people said amen. I’ve been clinging to that truth ever since. The joy of the Lord is my (and your) strength. Own it, Sister! Amen!

I know we have some new friends visiting the blog since Saturday’s simulcast, and I know many of you are anxious to see the recap video that our super gifted and really good photog buddy, Rich Kalonick, put together. He works tirelessly not only capturing the entire event, but then gets to work immediately so we have these by Monday morning. A very quick turnaround! Thank you so much, Rich, for your hard work, yet again.

One more thing, for those of you that are asking, and for those of you that don’t even know to ask, keep watching the blog everyday this week as we have a lineup of posts for you all that involve the creative writing, the commissioning and the responsive reading from the simulcast! Thanks so much for your patience with us as we work these in everyday. Y’all are the best and we love you!

Here is the recap!

    Hey Ladies,
    What an awesome event on Saturday! Boy, did I need to hear that message! Because of the pop quiz, I saw how much I live my life under the law. Is there any way that I can get a copy of those questions? I have been asked to share a recap of what I learned this weekend and would love to have those questions to ask my group.

    Thanks to Beth for always seeking the Lord and speaking to ME every time I hear or study the Word with her!!

    Hey Beth your message was straight from the Holy Spirit, Thank you so very much. I too would love the questions from the pop quiz because my husband really wanted to hear them as well. We want to share them with our small group. I think we forget that the men in our lives suffer greatly for the need for grace as well and I want my husband , my bestfriend to experience the same liberation that I was so awakened to on sat!! I want him to grab a hold of GOD’S grace and live set free also!!! Thank you again and blessings on you and your home.

    A truly awesome simulcast, Beth. I was amongst 70 older ladies and a few good men (including my husband) as we viewed the simulcast for my church in Oswego, NY. We hosted last year’s LPL simulcast as well and I’m always amazed at how the women stand and sing and respond to everything you say. There were a lot of ‘Amens’ going around on Saturday. I especially loved the responsive reading (though I did enjoy you throwing that old dead self around…sadly it kind of looked like me!) and was amazed that nearly 1/2 of them were from my SSMT for this year! Such confirmation that I was where God wanted me and that I was hearing Him. It gave me goose bumps!

    And a huge shout out and thank you to Lifeway for providing us with the ability to replay the entire simulcast. Such a great way to revisit and remember.

    Thank you Beth and Travis for a truly wonderfully worshipful Saturday

    That should say 70 other ladies not older! LOLO that will teach me to proof read better before hitting submit!

    Kim C says:

    I have SOOOOOO been hoping to see a post on here with the list of “Grace is….”

    I just about COULD NOT STAND UP after hearing that read aloud. I need to post some of those statements on my bathroom mirror. What a great, energetic way to get the day going ๐Ÿ™‚

    I am so very thankful for everyone that makes LPL simulcast possible… What a blessing you all are!

      Hey Kim,

      I got the GRACE list on an LPL blog email. Did you not? You can contact me via my website (click on my name or face or something to see it)
      It WAS powerful and totally a keeper. I lost it too when Beth was reading through the power of Grace! <3

    Marnie says:

    I so enjoyed the simulcast!! I’m still processing and chewing…and so thankful to have been part of it. I’d love to echo the words of many above commenters — I would love to rehash the quiz with my hubby but can’t remember the questions! Please do share the pop quiz for deeper conversations and connections with friends and family. God bless you, LPM!!! What servants you are!!!

    Val says:

    I would love love love to get the creative writing that you did about grace, it was so powerful!! I cant remember near enough of it though!

    Jennifer Smith says:

    Interestingly, a sister came up to me at Kroger on Friday before the simulcast, and after “hello”, her next words were, “So tell me, does (your church) have a real emphasis on grace? I think that’s something we are really lacking at (my church). I’m really struggling there, because I feel like everyone is so judgmental.” The next few minutes of the conversation centered around all of the aspects of law-following that you covered at the simulcast. I remembered thinking as she spoke, “I really don’t have an issue with grace. I don’t really struggle with law following.” My silly mouth (in my mind)! It was really not until you had us take the “pop quiz” that I realized I, too, struggle with living “under the law”. Startling realization! As the day wore on, God showed me more and more ways that I impose the law on myself, as well as others, especially those under my own little roof, without even realizing it. Thanks for the wake-up call. I want to go back over my notes, and ask God to challenge me in areas of my thinking that are still shackled to the law, so I may set myself and others free. I want to live “graced”, daily graced, and daily “gracing” others, rather than living as one who was only graced on the day of my salvation. May all of my life be under grace’s banner! Bless you, Beth … go in grace. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Joni Woodward says:

    This was my third Simulcast to watch & I loved the way this one was laid out. As always I felt as if Beth had been reading my journal or had been walking with me for the last several months, but I realize this was God all the way. Thank you, Beth, for all the sacrifices you make to be used by God so strongly. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you, Lindsee, and all the LPM staff for all your hard work and diligent service for all women everywhere.

    Sheri says:

    I have been a Christian for four years and one week now. Grace is the hardest thing for me to understand. I think because even though I know I’m changed, people don’t want to let me change. They want to keep reminding me that I did this or said that or went there or wore that. I don’t get to be remade in the eyes of people but somehow I do in front of a HOLY God? How can you make sense of that? It seems like too big and lavish of a gift to accept. Yet if I don’t (or can’t figure out how to make myself) then it’s prideful. And I hate that idea! I don’t want to be prideful! Or like my old self…so how on earth do you live under grace when everything in you says you have no business even thinking about it? I want it. I just don’t know how to live in it. It’s so hard to learn! For those of you who have been at this a long time, is it just something you finally figure out? I keep asking Him to help me, but I never feel like I have the ability to just live in the freedom. It seems like by doing that I’m trying to get out of something. The illustration was powerful. I’m so determined to find the way out right now! I hate the way I feel so condemned.

    Amber says:

    I’m so so excited! Can’t wait for the creative writing post. It really just brought home the message of Grace that you taught. (Btw, when you were throwing around that old man…I had several ppl in our group look at me and snicker..because its known that once I lost my cool with the hubs and launched a sippy cup and shoes at him. ONCE. and to this day, my children STILL say, “Mom, remember when you threw that sippy cup at Dad?” And I have to say, “yes, I shouldn’t have done that, it was ugly to act like that.” I bet I’m reminded of this moment of weakness about once a month at least. Anyway, my kids like to bring this up in church and everything, so my girlfriends know. LOL.. So yeah, I know what it’s like to sling that dead man all over the living room.) all that being said, I was blessed by you all! You’re a tremendous Bible teacher. I just can’t stop reading it, and so love to hear you teach it.

    Melissa Ens says:

    Just wanted you to know I did indeed experience a grace growth spurt on Saturday! This afternoon when I was comparing my family to someone else’s I caught myself and chose GRACE instead of the Law of ME or anyone else. So much peace! The message was so SO timely for me, I could (and might!) write you all a whole email to tell you about it.

    And God even gave me a word that was all my very own – as I thought about you, Beth, God spoke to me about how we have to keep living and experiencing the transforming, saving power of the Gospel (through the ups and especially the downs of life!) if we want to keep teaching/preaching it. I heard Him speak that to me at least twice. And that night? I got an invitation to speak at a women’s retreat here in Peru where we are missionaries. I haven’t done that here before, so the message from God for me was perfect and so encouraging. (And you bet they are going to be hearing about our GOD of GRACE!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ Hallelujah!!!

    Thank you Beth for giving to our Lord and Savior. I was blessed beyond words to hear The Lord speak to me so very clearly during and after simulcast. I was watching form Tennessee!! I pray for you and yours often. Love in Christ.

    Vanessa says:

    LPL with Beth was such a blessing on Saturday. The “white suit”/dead person we carry around was a huge eye opener for me, which also hit me it would be great to share with our youth! Our ladies retreat for the simulcast was wonderful and the plans have begun for the next one! Thank you for a great weekend. Glad I took the time out to be poured into so I can continue to poor out and in to others. Thank you for being a blessing to women around the world.

    Maureen says:

    Thank you, thank you! To say that Saturday’s event was mind boggling, life affirming, grace powered, and right in my face would be an understatement. Mount Pleasant Baptist Church in Colonial Heights, VA was my place for the day.

    God has taken me through a tough season (think years) of spiritual drought. I’ve stayed in His Word, kept faith, kept Walking with the One I knew was faithful. It has been long and, now I see, very necessary. Over the summer the drenching rain of God has slowly returned and I am so ready to leave this season … in the dust.

    Little did I know how much of my life got stuck under The Law. A Christian for 37 years (and a pastor’s wife): and I needed to repent Saturday afternoon just as surely as if I was going to the altar for the first time ever. NO LONGER to live life with some undue sense of self importance.

    I came Saturday with three questions for God – that if these were answered, then I would know how to run forward with the the next season of life. If not, cool, but I was ready for answers.

    There are three sets of tear stained stars in my notes. All three were answered …. specifically … scripturally …. personally … with the same words that thousands of other people all over the world heard. We serve a mighty, MIGHTY God.

    allison says:

    I was wondering what it was like to carry your “dead” self with you, Beth. I could only imagine if you were traveling by car how often you had to stop for potty breaks; or how many times you were pulled over by a cop and how you just realished in the moment of the bewilderment struck all over his face; or how many times your dead self asked, “are we there yet”? Or if you traveled by plane, what was security like? Did they have to do a pat down? Or how many crazy looks did you get from other passengers as you and your dead self were arguing over who gets the window seat?

    Brought back memories when I had to deliver a manikin to a long term care facility from college. Yes the manikin sat up front with me; yes they had their seat belt on; and yes, we sang songs on that 90 mile trip between WY towns. Last but not least, the gas station was the best pit stop ever!

    Thank you, Beth, for all your crazy ideas to get the point across and to drive it home. This was by far the best conference I’ve ever heard from you. Whether it was the holy spirit telling me to wake up or that God has something big planned for my baby Naomi Grace, job well done, good and faithful servant!

    karen says:

    oh, it was wonderful! thank you all so much for all your hard work. I did not realize how much standing under the law had affected really every part of my life…… what freedom to begin really hearing the Holy Spirit help me with this, grace and truth…. :)))

    Oh how I love Beth Moore and team!!! This simulcast touched me deeply a nd as always I appreciated Beth’s joy, humor and scriptural insight. I can never say Thank You enough for all of your hard work and devotion to sharing your gift with me. I am convinced that we we will be dear friends in heaven:)

    Saturday was the first Simulcast that I had ever been to and we gathered at a little church in Vidalia, LA . The presence if God was in the church. Praise God Praise God. You were amazing. I enjoy watching you and love to hear you messages and I am taking your classes on Tuesday (learning about Paul). I must say that you have made a big impact on the 21 year old. Thank you for speaking God’s word.

    Enjoyed the simulcast so much. I laughed and cried. Touched my heart. Today at work that old self reared his ugly head. I am going to have to have an obituary and finally bury that guy! Living under Grace, thank you Beth Moore.

  22. 72

    Thanks Beth, for an amazing Simulcast! This was my first of your LPM events. I usually do your bible studies in my own home by downloading the DVD’s and going through the workbooks (which I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE). This time, I attended a church I had never been to and met some wonderful ladies who invited me to join them in their next church Beth Moore Bible Study. I’m definitely attending!

    Tiffany says:

    I attended the simulcast in Elkin NC with a group at a local church. I have been to one other simulcast and I’ve been to one of your conferences. I knew from having gone twice before that since God made it possible for me to be there that he *did* have a word for me! I went with eager anticipation and God blew my mind!!!!!! I have struggled for years with grace vs law after being a previous pit dweller most of my life. I echoed often “God loves me but I know I dissappoint him.” Wrong! Do you know how freeing it was to hear that he’s not dissappointed in me??? I know you do know how that feels! I could almost feel the chains falling off as I sat there writing down what you were saying as fast as I could. God really went above and beyond when several times througout the simulcast you spoke something that pointed directly to what God has been teaching me in his and my time together. A few times it was exactly word for word what he has showed me. I was shocked and humbled to say the least. I’m still in awe over it. I had also been reading in Romans chapters 1 through 5 for a couple of weeks. I say all of this to say THANK YOU for obeying the leading of the Holy Spirit and teaching what you did. It is best described like this, God has been giving me a daily gift for weeks as he taught me something new every day. The message you gave put it all in one big box and tied a bow around, sealing it! Praise the Lord!

    Thank you so much for following after God and the Holy Spirit’s leading. I was very blessed to be able to go for the whole day. I’m thankful for a loving husband who helped with the kids all day.
    Grace, God’s wonderful Grace!!

    I wanted to know if you will be posting the prayer that we said over our group at the end of the day? It was a powerful reminder of speaking God’s truth over ourselves and others.
    Thank you,

    enjoyed and was blessed at the Anderson University simulcast. The responsive reading were verses God had given me over the past weeks since I have been waiting to have a medical procedure that was planned and postponed. They were exactly the same!! Awesome! All the songs and readings and lessons seemed to be the things I needed to hear.God gives what we need as we need to hear it. Waiting to receive copies to have with me in the next weeks. The Word is a treasure to me!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  30. 80

    WOW! What a great way to spend a Saturday!!!! Not only hearing the riches that you poured out Beth, but a friend accepted the Lord and asked me to baptize her. Now that was a 1 – 2 punch. The Lord truly did a number on me, I grew up in the church and understood grace & law. When you shared, “I got it, saved by grace but everything and everyone else in your life you measured by the law” about took me to the floor I too was apart of that sisterhood – NO LONGER!!!! Truly, glory to GOD!!! Holy Spirit fill her & the team back up cause they poured out so much of You on all those that heard! Looking forward to the quiz, definitions & writings on your blog. Looking forward to next month when our church will host the “Sacred Secrets” study.

    We watched Saturday’s simulcast from our church in Holtville, CA and I know in my heart it was life changing for many women – one precious lady asked Jesus into her heart! What an awesome day of encouragement, motivation, tears, joy, teaching, learning – we can’t thank you enough. We will never forget “the old man” – a perfect illustration! Would love to also have the quiz questions and the verses for the responsive reading – the RED words were powerful!

    I am so thankful for Beth and for the teaching on Grace . . . but to be honest . . . as a speaker . . . I just really have been struggling with Dummy envy. What a great prop and an excellent way to bring home the silliness of what we do, dragging around our old dead self.
    Loved it.

    NO LONGER! GRACE…standing on the Name Above All Names…Jesus, Son of God!
    What an awesome time of praise and worship and study! Thank YOU LORD! Best teaching ever, but then I say that about every one. Thank you, Beth for your obedience to the Lord. Living Proof Ministries is an awesome ministry which continues to point people to Jesus and bring us all closer to Him. Thank you Lifeway for providing the simulcast video for one month. The devil did everything in his power to keep me from this event, but by the GRACE of God, I’ve been able to watch and re-watch the video and will do it multiple times before the end of the month. Thank you for providing the resources we have requested. What a Mighty God we serve!

    Grace – a word often spoken – sung about. What do we know of grace? We name our kids Grace. We say grace before a meal. The word grace went into my spirit on September 14, 2013 while I sat in the darkened pew at Happy Valley Church in Kountze, TX. I have my notes. I have reviewed them and like a trusty GPS – I will utilize them. Sometimes the only moisture in a wilderness will be our own tears. God’s grace has been with me and HE will continue to walk on the water to meet my needs.

    What an awesome way to spend a Saturday. I was able to see the simulcast from Colonial Heights, Virginia, with a group of ladies from my Church. Never have I heard Grace taught in such a powerful and life changing way. I will never forget the “old dead self” illustration. I haven’t been the same since this weekend. The Lord moved mightily and I am forever grateful. Thank you Lord, thank you Beth and your team.

    christina says:

    Thank you for Saturday, Beth and team. Three(yes, really!) times in the last 6 days Romans 6 and/or “Christian legalism” was the topic of discussions or teaching I was involved in. Sunday the pastor started a new sermon series on Galatians, too. Do you think the Lord might be wanting to tell me something?

    It’s no secret that I’m a recovering legalist. Good girl perfectionism is definitely part of my “B.C.” old dead self. After the last week, I’m thinking maybe I’ve been in relapse instead of recovery mode and need to say a loud “no longer!” to that old, stinking dead me. Lord, have mercy on us and flood us and our communities with your grace!

    Looking forward to the Grace creative writing and whatever else y’all share for our reference. Thanks for taking care of that, Lindsee.

    GRACE and peace to y’all in our Lord Jesus Christ.

    Hello..I cannot put into words what this simulcast and Beth has done to/for me..I laughed I cried and felt wow she gets it about being a woman (of course she does,lol)It’s nice to finally to have someone to relate to and how she helps me understand God and the Bible better.

    I was wondering if it would be possible to get the list of songs that we sung during worship. Thanks

    Missy says:

    I wanted to thank Beth and the people responsible for bringing the simulcast about. My husband used to be an angry man;verbally abusive to my children. I’ve held hard feelings against him for over 10 years. Recently he confessed to another sin against our marriage and told me he is counseling with a man from our church. I felt nothing. When Beth spoke about,”Can you imagine living with someone whom you realize you constantly disappoint; you can never please them, how you would feel?” She was speaking about not being able to disappoint God but then & there the Holy Spirit confronted me with my own sin of unforgiveness. Shortly after Beth gave an altar call and I went forward and repented. My husband is not the man he used to be and deserves to be treated with grace and love. Saturday night I confessed to him, asked him to marry me and we renewed our vows with our pastor. There has been an amazing change in my heart and I have an immense love for him now. Thank you for your obedience and faithfulness to preach the Word.

    I just have to share this wonderful God-story with you. Friday night, as I lay awake praying for the simulcast on Saturday and asking God to speak to me, all of a sudden I had this vision…a picture that God gave to me. And, almost immediately after, I started singing the song, Amazing Grace My Chaines are Gone! When I got to the simulcast on Saturday and learned of the theme and then the main worship song was the exact song God planted in my heart, I knew that’s exacty where God had met me! Thank you so much for your servant’s heart and allowing the Holy Spirit to lead! PS – I’ve since sketched the drawing and put the words to it. I’d love to share it with you if you would like…just let me know how to send it to you! Your sister in Christ, Stacey
