Mindful and Grateful and a Tad Pictorial

Hey, my dear sisters!

Although I won’t post this until Tuesday, I’m writing to you on the afternoon of Sunday the 10th. This is about the thousandth time I’ve corresponded with you from somewhere around an altitude of 27,000 feet. I’m on my second Delta flight of the day, heading home to Houston with so many memories of the last 8 months swimming around in this blond head. As many of you know because you so faithfully prayed us through, we wrapped up our final Living Proof Live event for 2013 this weekend. God just flat-out could not have given us a louder, more wonderful congregation at the Ocean Center in Daytona Beach, Florida for a finale. They wanted Jesus and, in His unfathomable grace, He showed Himself faithful.

As any of you in a travel-oriented ministry know, life is all the while taking place while you live out a schedule that was set in stone way before you got a whiff of what the year would hold. We’re better off that way, aren’t we? If we could see what was coming, we’d insult the grace of God by our faithlessness that He’d not come through when the time came to meet the need. The greater Moore family – and, by that, I mean Amanda’s 4 Jones, Keith’s parents who live next door, Melissa, my man and me – have had a year with as much upheaval and pain as we have met in a decade.

Jesus graciously allowed Keith and me to have, hands-down, the most peaceful year of our marriage. You know the kind of people who are carefree and smooth sailing? Well, that would not be us. We both tend to be on the feisty side. And I write that with a smile. I’ve been so thankful for this, our closest-ever kiss of bliss. I don’t know what we would have done otherwise. Our children and our parents needed us badly. Needed Jesus badly. We just tried to be constant and present reminders that He was there and that we were right beside them. And we ate a lot. Sometimes that’s the best way to show a little extra love around here. We are a close family and close families laugh together and cry together and, in our clan, when an unforeseen collision happens, all of us are in the car. Some are in the front seat. Some in the back. But, make no mistake, we’re all in the car. And that’s how we want to be. I know many of you can relate.

So, through many ups and downs, twists and turns, needs and bleeds, we’ve lived these last many months on drips, streams, and gushes of God’s grace. I’ve flown north, south, east, and west this year earning Platinum status on United and turning on my cell phone at the first touch of the wheels on the tarmac to see if everybody at home was okay. I could cry typing and not just over memories that make my heart ache but because Jesus has been so faithful to us. He has gotten us through. He’s still getting us through. And He will get us through again in 2014 when we, then, live out a schedule etched on the calendar before we had any idea what was coming.

Jesus is coming. That’s what I know. And that’s why we Moores and Jones will stay at it, come what may.

With the finish of our last Living Proof Live event for the year and with your patience, I thought I might introduce you to some of the people I have the privilege to serve alongside. Some are more familiar to you because you’ve seen them on the platform but all are huge, vital contributors to the ministry that takes place. Most of them come from Nashville, Ron (security) comes from Louisville, Shela-Lyn, our beautiful and gifted sign language interpreter, comes from Phoenix, and I am the lone but happy traveler from Houston. Some come by 18 wheelers to the events with all the big equipment. The rest of us fly but the end result is the same: we arrive and get to work. There is not a single slouch. We couldn’t make it with a lazy team. We’ve never found a formula or a system that works every time. We have to be ready for almost anything and I do mean spiritually, physically, emotionally, and technically. Everybody multitasks and nobody quips, “That’s not my job.”

All of our job descriptions have morphed through the years. If something needs doing, somebody just gets up and does it. For instance, Ron doesn’t just run security. He sets out the elements for my team and me to take communion before the opening on Friday night. Rich used to just be in charge of picking me up at the airport and driving me to the event and keeping a general eye out for me. While he still does the driving (because we will not let him go), he also developed into a spectacular, in-demand professional photographer and, because of him, we have the whole LPL lifetime archived in pictures. He is also our resident foody, although you wouldn’t know by looking at him, and he does the restaurant planning.

Well, if I don’t stop this, you’ll get bored and I’ll never get done so let me get to the fun part: some pictures that I just happen to have on my cell phone.


Here’s all of us, the Living Proof Live team:

I love them so much I could bawl. Here is the praise team and a few of our other hardworking buddies like Stephen Proctor who runs and masterminds our visual worship (in the very back) right after the simulcast this year.

Here’s me and my old dead man of sin at the simulcast. Laughing. (If you weren’t there, this was a way of illustrating Romans 6.)

Here’s the whole LifeWay women’s event team (that puts on LPL) all living out their dream of being the praise team. Makes me so dang happy. That’s Flat Travis with them in case he looks a bit…well…flat. They are stellar women and hilarious. I’ve had the joy of serving with a publisher full of people who pursue Jesus Christ at fever-pitch. I do not take it lightly.

This picture was taken when we all first got to Daytona Beach and met up for team supper on Thursday night. Betsy oversees all our LPL events and we’re nuts about her. Susan provides something for us beyond all price. She welcomes those who receive Christ as Savior, prays with anyone who needs it, and often counsels women at the event who are really hurting. Paige Green, right next to me, oversees all LifeWay women’s events (like dot.mom, Priscilla Shirer Live, etc.) If Paige and I lived in the same city, we might be BFF. I love working with her so much but she is also a personal friend. I even love her mother. It’s that kind of thing. That’s our buddy, Stephen Proctor, on the other side.

Saturday night after the event, a small handful of us braved the amusement park there on the boardwalk in Daytona Beach and, honestly, we laughed like 10 year-olds. I’m scared of rides, by the way, but my fears meant nothing to this team but grounds for mockery and scorn. Once a gauntlet is thrown down, my pride usually exceeds my fear which is why I’m on this ridiculous roller coaster. And why we rode it over and over and over. Trav took this picture of Angela (his wife, dear as blood-kin to me), Paige, Bradford (who works at Travis’s church in Jackson, TN and is often a part of our team on the road) and me.

This action shot of Ang and me absolutely kills me. Please try to wrap your head around our Texas and Tennessee hair. It looks as though we are battling the very flames of hell but, clearly from our expressions, God is giving us the victory.

Ang is one of the most powerful women of prayer I know and, Girlfriend, I know some. I work with a whole staff of them. We’ve been doing something different in the 3rd session of Living Proof Live this year, spending a good bit of it in intercessory prayer for whatever segment of women the Holy Spirit lays on our hearts. Here I asked Angela to pray over all the moms in the room who are still actively raising children. The whole picture moves me so much. Look at the men on the front row (Travis and the guys on our praise team) pressing in. You’ll also see our friend Christine Caine on the edge of the shot (standing). We were amazed with her busy schedule that she’d come and attend this LPL. (She was speaking at a large church in the area the next day.) She has two of the cutest daughters you’ve ever seen so, in this picture, she is very actively engaging in prayer as a recipient. I asked Christine to pray over the young women in the room just minutes before Ang prayed because she has a divine gift for mobilization like few people I have ever met. I’ve heard from a number of those young women on Twitter saying what a powerful time it was.

I suppose I’ve just about worn you out by now, haven’t I? So I’ll go ahead and wrap up our 2013 LPL wrap-up. This is Travis, my dear and true son in the faith, Bradford and me on that silly roller coaster.

That picture sums up the entire 16 year journey of Living Proof Live. Jesus has been outrageously faithful on this ride and allowed us to worship Him and seek Him with congregations of the most fabulous and diverse women we could ever have imagined serving. We want so much to lift Jesus higher and higher next year, to say His Name louder and louder, and to proclaim His Word clearer and clearer. If God chooses to increase His glory through these events in the coming years and make this group of Jesus freaks the least bit useful through His magnanimous grace, then we’ll have cause to keep doing this.


The team and I won’t go back on the road together until next April because I (ecstatically!) start Tuesday night Bible study in Houston in January then head back to Australia right after it concludes in mid-March. When I land back in the States, it will be time to pack the LPL suitcase again. By that time, if I don’t have the manuscript for Children of the Day complete and turned in, I may be fried like a chicken.

Thank you for humoring me today with my sappy sentimentality over my beloved team. I am nuts about them. As wild as we are about one another, we have one thing on our minds the moment the event is over: getting back home to our people. My darling and me. There is no place like home.

    Mama Beth, your family has been in my prayers ever since you first asked. Thank you for this lighthearted post even with all the (unknown to me, known to God) hard y’all have endured this year. My family is “all in the car” together when any one of us is blindsided too, so I empathize. Praise God for His faithfulness and nearness in our sorrows. Praise Him for a sweet marriage time in the midst of the afflictions. What grace.

    Over and over these last few months, I’ve reminded myself your own words, “God is always better than He has to be. You can count on that.” May you and yours know that in experience yourselves.

    Grace and peace to you in Christ Jesus. He loves you so much!

    Thank you so much for these fabulous pictures of you and your team. This is the 1st year I have not been able to attend an LPL. *sigh* You have taught myself and 1000’s of others Jesus for the very first time and through the years have grown to love Him more and more. I pray much rest over you in the months ahead, much joy and Jesus to your family and may He continue to be the absolute thrill of your heart.

    Much love from TN,

    There is something so important about women meeting together to worship God! I cried (and laughed) through your post, Beth, because I’ve attended some LPL events and come away a different person! I’ve done all your bible studies and come away a different person. God uses you, Mamma Beth, and I’m thankful! God bless you extravagantly! Your obedience and humility towards Him has blessed me!

    Dear Beth,
    What a wonderful post about your ‘extended family!’ Prayer for you all your team will continue, and this Ohio girl hopes to travel to Hershey PA with my BFF next year to see you. LPM is such a blessing to us all- and may God bless you and yours through the end of this year and the next! Much love to you!!

    Beth, please know that the battles your family endures for the sake of the call are not lost on any of us. Thank you! I pray for y’all often, and I praise God for what he has done over the last 15 years through LPL. If you were to ask me, I could name a specific word God has given me at each event that I have been blessed to attend – and that alone is proof that HE attended them, too. We love you!

    And, Ron – a foodie? Never would have guessed, but I love that! 🙂

    I had the blessing of attending the event in Bossier with my two daughters, we were so in awe of the woman translating the message into sign language, it was beautiful to watch. Plus one of the hearing helper dogs decided he liked my daughter (who has dogs of her own) and he rested his head on her leg throughout the Sat. sessions. It was a wonderful time of worship.

    Great adventure thru this blog 🙂

    Loved seeing the pics, hearing the stories, and living vicariously through your life.

    Thank you Beth for taking time to include us!

    LOVED your last 2 pictures, they seem to sum you up 😀

    I am at work so all I can write is :-). I feel you on the upheaval and pain of this year but one of the highlights for me was seeing you at LPL in Phoenix!! God shows me everyday He just wants me to stay focused on Jesus!!! So that is what I will continue to do!! Thanks for helping me do that!!
    P.S. I love the pic of you and your man!!

    Beth, I know most of us want to think you have the Biggest Hummer Bus – not just the family car – so that we can all squeeze in together.

    But the truth is, as much as you are a dear and let us into your world, you really do have a family car, too. And I’m sorry for whatever the hurt and tears have been in the car this past bit of highway.

    But maybe you can imagine all of Siestaville in the Biggest Hummer Bus – next to your family car – headed down the highway. All the windows on the bus are open and we’re waving, blowing kisses, and cheering on you and your family, just like you’ve so faithfully done to each one of us in our own, sometimes pain-filled, family cars.

    I love you.

    Thanks for pressing forward even when your heart was heavy. Even when your heart was breaking.

    Thank you so much for sharing your team with us. I was able to attend my first LPL this year (Providence, RI) and what an awesome time it was!! So grateful for all of the sacrifices you and the team make in Jesus’ name. I am fairly new to your Bible studies too and I just have to thank you for your labor of love for our great God and His Word. I recently finished, “A Woman’s heart, God’s dwelling place” and the Lord forever changed me with it. Praying that you and your precious family and team are able to rest some now. And may Jesus continue to be the thrill and desire of your hearts!
    Much love to you.

    Acts 3:16 ~ Your Faith that comes through Jesus has given so many of us such healing in our souls. It is not your power or piety that makes me and so many of us hold our heads high and walk. Acts 3:12. It is a Beautiful God in you and through you.

    Your words resonate. It has been one of the hardest years yet over here where I live. Sometimes I think I cannot take one more thing. But this I know! We have the promise! An Advocate. His power that draws me out to live beyond my circumstances and keep going on. A few minutes ago I was reading a book and the author said: “You must now trust truth, not your experience or your blessings.” Thank you, Beth, for trusting Truth.

    Beth, thank you for being so transparent with us. Love this blog, but really love it when you include pictures. I have prayed for you this year, but will continue. ( I have the reminder on my Iphone!!!). Thank you for the life you live and the wisdom you share.

    Love you

    Oh Beth, It truly feels like we went on this journey together and in a way we all did, what with the prayers, videos and photos. I love you and “the gang” for serving Jesus. I know that it involves sacrifice. Very excited about all that Jesus has planned in the future. For now, rest (haha), enjoy your family and recharge your batteries. Love you Siesta Mama!

    Beth, it was a wonderful blessing and privilege to attend the Daytona Beach LPL last weekend, and to be selected as one of the VIMA ministry assistants to receive a reserved seat near the stage. My seat had the same vantage point as the photo above about which you said, “The whole picture moves me so much. Look at the men on the front row (Travis and the guys on our praise team) pressing in. You’ll also see our friend Christine Caine on the edge of the shot (standing).” I was just as moved by experiencing true, honest, transparent worship…with outstretched HANDS…thank you!

    Chelle Hall says:

    Oh Miss Beth! You and the entire LPL team are such treasured jewels. Thank you, thank you, thank you for loving our Lord and all of us the way only you could do through Him.That’s all, just thank you and God Bless the whole team and your families.

    Karen says:

    You and your team were supercharged by our Lord Jesus! I was in Daytona this weekend and I was as close as you could be electrocuted by the Holy Spirit and live to tell it. WOW! I told my husband when I got home, I felt like I was at war. I’m still recovering.
    I pray for your family, I know what it is like when trouble comes to your kids. Mine are in ministry and they have had some hard blows themselves this year. If someone hurts my kids The mamma lioness comes out. Then the Lord gently speaks through my siesta. Your teaching on offenses convicted me, I know where the attacks are coming from and my Father also knows!
    He is ready to come for his Bride, just waiting on His father to tell him to go get em! Hang in there Beth, there is more work to be done:) Your sister in Christ, Karen

    Got home tonight from our Session Three video and Bible study time with “Stepping Up”. Felt full from our feast of God’s goodness. Then I get this blog post from you and discovered I get the “dessert” to top it all off! :o)
    Love your sentimental heart! Hugs!!

    Thanks for sharing all these fun pics, Beth. I love how dearly and deeply you love your own. I’m sad that your family has suffered such heartache this year, but I know it hasn’t been without coming to sweeter and deeper places with Jesus and knowing Him even better. I don’t have to tell you that serving on the front lines with Jesus ain’t for sissies. He never said it would be easy, but worth it. I’m grateful for the sacrifice that you, your family, and your LPL family make to serve the One we so love. It takes a team and you’ve got a great one! Thanks, again, for all that you do! Much love… xo P

    Hey Siesta Mama,

    Thank you for posting. I can’t believe you rode that rickety old roller coaster! My girlfriends and I rode the ferris wheel next to it to celebrate our weekend with Jesus. 🙂

    Just wanted to let you know, like Missy says above, your pain and the pain of your family is not lost on us.

    You asked us Siestas to post on the Recap video post, but I’m posting here because of the photos, and, well, it’s a recap, right?

    Your share this weekend about choosing to seek counsel, and ask for prayer when you might be moving toward offense spoke to me. Out of all the sharing, stories, and all 10 points, that moment is etched in my mind. Jesus is so worthy. He never fails.

    The rest of my time this weekend was one of refreshing and “27 Bones” was just what I needed. And what a treat to have sharing during the third session! Wow. What a blessing to be prayed for and to pray over so many women. I’m still leafing through my notes and reading through the gospels.

    I’ll never forget seeing you at Women of Faith 10+ years ago and Jesus lit a fire in me. Now I’m in full-time ministry. Thank you for your obedience over the last 20 years. Every Bible Study you’ve written has been a journey for you…and for many of the women who’ve done them. I have a stack of workbooks that were the vehicles God used to move me toward Him and helped me to fall head over heels in love with Jesus.

    Thanks to you and the entire team for all of the work.
    I can’t even imagine the treasures He has stored up for each of you!!

  23. 23
    Beth says:

    What a wonderful message with words and pictures to end the LPL for 2013. Your family is first & foremost on my mind and I’m praying that you will have some time to concentrate on the needs of each of your loved ones individually, including yourself. You ministered to me more than you will know with these words recently, and they are so fitting for you now…”I care so much and I pray God all over you. May God continue to show you and your family miraculous power beyond your comprehension. I am honored to be your sister.” Your words, my feelings. Thanks be to our marvelous Lord, who can unite each of us as “one body”, sisters with a purpose for each of our own lives.
    Much love!

    Betty M says:

    Dear Beth,
    Waht a crazy life! But you know when you get asked why you do what you do,you’d have to say “for all the love He has showered upon us how can we not?” I have such a microscopic ministry compared to you I am just starting my writing career in my retirement and teaching Sunday School each Sunday after not doing this for over 30 yrs. Every Sun is different and what thrills my heart is when I have a new kid showing up and when I aks him if he knows Jesus and he says he never heard of Him I get to be the first to teach him about Jesus. Then I realize all the pain I go through of preparing lessons getting up earlier on Sundays is all worth every bit of it and more!
    “Let us not grow weary for in due time we will harvest a reward!!” Not sure where this is found right now!!
    Hope to see you twice next year I live smack dab between Mpls and Billings Mt!! So til then unless He comes sooner!!

    Beth, thank you so much for everything you do! Your ministry has changed my life. I think The Lord for finding you! I just can’t get enough of Jesus and Beth Moore! I just finished a Tuesday night bible study of yours. Beloved Disciple, The Life and Ministry of John. It was so wonderful. I feel like I personally know John after spending 10 weeks with him! Thank you again. God Bless You and I love you.

    Beth Andrews says:

    I was blessed to be among the 8,800 women in the congregation at the Ocean Center in Daytona Beach. It was a wonderful time of praise and worship and the Word. I am still pouring over my notes and processing all I took in and wrote down.
    I got my words: “Don’t argue with a Pharisee” (as I have just started seminary courses online)and “Lay it down and move on” (after a hard couple of years of foreclosure, depression, a rebellious child and persecution at my job-in a church!).
    And I got my wonder, as I looked at the screen when you were greeting those who came to surrender their lives to Christ, and saw a young college student who has been attending a Bible study class I teach, there among those women. She was surrendering to God’s call on her life, and now I have to privilege of mentoring her!
    Thank you for being faithful to God’s call on your life all these years. Thank you to Travis and the Praise teams, to the “techies,” the prayer warriors, and every person involved for making this event possible. Thank you to the God Almighty for “showing up and showing off!”

    What a delightful glimpse into the crazy life of our sister Beth! So glad you have returned from your travels to minister to your home girls in January. I will be there – hopefully in my favorite fourth row seat (we seem to gravitate to the same areas just like Sundays). Me and the girls will leave early to beat the traffic from the south side. Rest up and enjoy your family. Can’t wait to see you! Cyber hugs and kisses coming your way.

    I was blessed to be at the Daytona event; I did in fact receive a Word and a Wonder – high 27!!! I am a pastor’s wife, and I so related to Beth’s heartache over the “second hand pain” she has suffered this year. My husband and I married our only daughter (we have two sons) on October 19, 2012. We didn’t give her away casually or without serious prayer. She married a strong Christ follower, and we accepted him happily and gratefully into our family as another son. Unfortunately, six months into the marriage, he committed adultery with a woman he met at work. Our daughter has been devastated. He told her this on a Sunday after church where they served together in our Children’s Ministry. She moved back home, enrolled in school, and after a short time of getting consolation from the world, she seemed on track. She told him she forgave him and wanted to work on their marriage–he wasn’t interested. She seemed to accept it, but then the “would have been” one-year anniversary hit. To boot, the weekend before she was the maid of honor for a friend. She has “spun out”, but I know God’s hand is upon her. He shows me this every day. My two sons walk with the Lord, and I know she will be “back in his arms again” very soon. That is my fervent prayer. God has shown me that our family is just collateral damage to our son-in-law’s decision to sin against God. It still hurts, of course, but it does put it into perspective and helps me to know how to pray. I am praying for Beth and her family. Satan is alive and not so well–he is a defeated enemy, praise the Lord.

      Melany says:


      I’m saying a prayer for your daughter right now. Thanks for the reminder that Satan is a defeated enemy. He has definitely been going after my family as well. It hurts terribly, but I have not given up hope, either.

    (I feel like I can use your first name because through all of your studies I’ve done and simulcasts I’ve attended, I feel like I know you!)
    I am SOOOOO thankful you allow God to use you to “do this thing” that you do! I cannot express how extremely blessed I have been by you and by what God had taught me through you. I am so sorry you have faced such hardship in the past year. I do pray the next year will show you some peace and relief.
    I’m hoping and praying a group of my girls from church and I can one day see you in person….we’re seriously considering Hershey or Ft. Wayne next year! It’s a dream of ours!
    I don’t think you need to do any apologizing for introducing and gushing on your team. It is an honor to get to know you all! I think it’s really neat to learn a little of what goes on behind the scenes.
    Please keep doing what you’re doing!
    With Love in Jesus,

    I have been praying for guidance and your message helped me work through some issues. I am a newer coordinator for a mobile food distributions throughout our county. The locations are ususally the same year after year with the same funders. When you talked about it being better when things are set in stone long in advance, I thought of how true that is.

    We have been offered trucks of food if we can set up a day and place to distribute it before the end of the year. Many of the usual volunteers are gone for the winter. As you may know it gets cold in the north country in the winter and we have had early snows already.

    I am torn veterans of the mobiles say it can’t be done, volunteers are already too committed for holiday activities or no one may come for food. Knowing that there are so many struggling in our community, I feel like we need to at least try to do a distribution. I need to have things in place by the end of the week if it is going to happen.

    I ask for your prayers for this mission. I know that God has this and will provide the right people and place if it is meant to be.

    Thanks to all who lift us up in prayers this week.

    Hi Beth,
    This was my first LPL in Daytona and I’m a changed woman. A woman named Kelly prayed for me there and it was so touching and unforgettable, she connected with me and ask God to help me in my pursuit of my calling and I’m seeing clearer possibilities. So thankful for all that you and your staff do. Was astounded by some of the women’s responses to our homework, the prayers of all those women, no doubt, will save some lives. I will never forget that “There is NOTHING like the HAND of the Lord upon my life.” Love you, sister in Christ.

    Beth, thank you and your team so much for your humility. I’m not sure if you’d like me to mention this since y’all are so humble but it touched me this past weekend in Dayton Beach. You were never announced. Your prayer and asking of the SPIRIT to guide you before you spoke each session. The ending of Travis and the praise band walking off as we sang praises to our FATHER. It was all an example to not be prideful. I can only image someone in your position would really need to be wary of that. I wanted you to know you’re doing a terrific job and being a great example. GOD bless and thank you for pointing me toward the WORD.

    Bless you, bless you, sister in the faith. In the midst of so much, including a big dose of heartache, you poured out your life for us, as did your team. I pray that it comes back to you in spades this next year!!

    What a fantastic post! Thank you. As someone who could not make it to a LPL event this year (locations and schedules just didn’t work out), this post was a wonderful peak into the year. I look forward to seeing you in Stockton, Ca in the spring. Enjoy some time at home.

    Beth, How did you do it? How did you stay in love with your husband through all the ups and downs that you had? How did you let go of all the hurt, and not keep it inside? I struggle, after all the hurt, to even know or feel like I love my husband any more. I want to. Does that count for anything?
    Thank you, and your family, for all you do to encourage and teach us. I listen to you, hear the excitement and love for Jesus in your voice, and think, “I want that, oh how I want what she has.”

    Thanks Beth! Daytona was awesome, God is awesome and Jesus is just to precious for words! Thank you to you and your team of peeps for your dedication to sharing Jesus and his truth to a “people” who need to hear! Through your teaching you led me towards the one who heals and restores and for that I am forever grateful. God bless you dear Beth and all those who work with you and especially your family who has become all too acquainted with the “troubles” of this world. Praying for you to stay strong, stay vocal, to not lose heart and keep moving forward. March on, Girlfriend!!

    Every morning I say delight me Lord! As you told us in one of your Bible studies . This year has been very painful for our family too my husband has stage 4 colon cancer and I sent my first born 1000 miles away to Wheaton college. The scripture memory team I had never tried until this year and boy has it come at a perfect time. Bless you Beth for your encouragement. And bless your Family .
