Just a Silly Update on all things Moore, Mainly for You Diehards

Just ramblings here today, my beloved sisters! If you’ve got something better to do, do it! It had just been a while since I’d said, “This is what Keith’s up to, what Amanda and Curtis are up to, what Melissa is up to…”


And a basic little devo at the end.


Felt like putting something up that was mostly just personal and across-the-table-from-you-at-Starbucks-ish. But I couldn’t resist throwing a word in there at the end. That’s all that really sticks to our ribs anyway.


I think about you guys continually and love you so much!

    I really enjoyed your update. Despite the fact I probably have about 10 ladies coming to my house tonight to start “Children of the Day.” I was scurrying around cleaning, etc., and this devotion really was worth the time. My sister is in this with me and a home study is the first time for both of us!! Please pray for our time tonight and open hearts for those coming to start this study.

    Isn’t it amazing that even those of us who have been ministering for years often need just a word to confirm what we know to be true. God did that today through your statement that said something like: if it is your calling you will be energized by it! The enemy has been having a hay-day with me making me think that I am no longer needed or no longer able because I am older. I, sadly, listened to his rantings this last week and have felt discouraged. Thank you for being on camera saying what you did because I don’t think I would have read it! The result is I know I am still needed, and I still have purpose. I want to become a dishrag daily for Him. Lord, let me continue to be a Tabitha for you.

    Thank you sister.

      Cyndi Grace – now you know better than to think you’re no longer needed. The ladies at One Great Lunch Break love your teaching and I love your teaching. I haven’t been to OGLB in a while due to a change in work schedule that has kept me away – it’s logistically next to impossible to drive from where my workplace moved down to FBCJ to attend and yet be back to work in an hour [or a few more minutes]. My work schedule has changed once again and I intend to be at OGLB on Monday. Hope to see you there – if I remember correctly from June’s e-mail – you better be because you’re the guest speaker!

    Love this video!! So wonderful to hear about your sweet family, Beth. I love the words “opportunities for overcoming.” One of my favorite quotes of all time is by Chuck Swindoll: “We are all faced with a series of great opportunities brilliantly disguised as impossible situations.” It has been a hallmark quote for me! Yet, until today, I have never looked at the actual “overcoming” of the seemingly impossible situation as being the opportunity. But, ISN’T IT SO TRUE??? Well, today, I feel like an OVERCOMER!! Thanks so much for this message, my Sister, and for your patience and encouragement while I get my “seam straight.” Grin. I so love you.

    Hi Beth,
    Really enjoyed your update. Although I haven’t posted a comment for some time I read the blog regularly and am completing Children of the Day albeit much later than everyone else. God is really working in my life this year. My mom died earlier this year after over a years poor health after a stroke and I felt His presence so clearly throughout that time.
    I am retiring early after Christmas and I trust Him completely to show me what He wants me to do next. Things are changing so much and there have been so many difficult events to face – yet I have never felt so peaceful and a sense of deep rooted contentment.
    I thank God for you,this blog and your teachings, My life has been completely transformed over the last few years. Praise The Lord!

      Dear Jackie,

      Much love,

    Hi Beth, I was at your recent simulcast and your message changed my life. Thank you for your obedience to the Lord, for loving women so much. I’m so new to blogs, however, I am enjoying yours tremendously. I’m separated from my abusive husband and it’s been a two year struggle to even get a separation agreement settled. You are absolutely right with helping others. It makes a big difference in my life when I’m giving to others. You are such a blessing and I thank God for you and the ministry.

      Angie says:

      I just wanted to reply to you to Praise God with you that He got you out of that situation and will be praying that you are kept safe and for the agreement to be final, In Jesus name. I remember speaking to a woman at one of the conferences who was in your situation and felt dragged by her friends there, that the speakers could not relate and didn’t think anyone saw her or cared…and while you are not her, I wanted to just respond to you also…You are seen, you are loved, and people on this blog and I know Beth and LPM love you dearly, and we rejoice that you obeyed God and walked into the life He has planned for you…and His plans are for GOOD and He will bring you full circle through them. I will be praying for you ๐Ÿ™‚

    Deanne says:

    Thank you for the update! I enjoyed the short devotional from Acts 9 on doing some good and helping the poor. “Doing some good” for Jesus was one of the main things that stood out for me when I did the Children of the Day Bible study this summer.

    I had out-patient surgery today on my right foot. I will not be able to place any weight on the foot for up to 3 weeks and will have to get around by crutches or a rolling knee walker.

    I would appreciate prayer in healing and a quick recovery. Thank you so much for praying!

      Dear Deanne,

    Hi Beth! I loved hearing from you!! And it must have felt just like sitting across from you at the coffee shop–for I watched this yesterday evening and could picture you there in your third floor office with Melissa…and then proceeded to have a dream that I visited y’all there at your office. I asked where the prayer closet was…. ๐Ÿ™‚ Ha! Ha!

    So glad for the update! That was such a good Word on Tabitha. Thank you so much for all you do. I thank God for you regularly and your ministry. I just completed Children of the Day on my own. It was so good and spoke to my heart. God bless you!

    CC says:

    BMoore, thank you for taking the time to encourage us. I’m so thankful for the long lineage of spiritual “moms” beginning with Tabitha and including you and other women who keep encouraging me to stay the course. I am a campus minister and my prayer is that I will be a good “mom” to them as I love on them and point them to Jesus. Love you!

    Dearest Beth and LPM,
    Thank you for this video update and devotional. I help lead a group of ladies at my friend Hazel’s (the Laloo Ladies, laloo as in “crazy” for Jesus ๐Ÿ˜€ ) – we’ve been meeting for quite a few years now and myself and many of the ladies were at your LivingProof Life in Ft. Wayne last month – we loved every bit of it. Thank you for your deep commitment to the women in God’s church, Beth. I have just started the week 6 homework for Children of the Day (CORN?!!) and I have a desire to help ladies be empowered and made more confident in reaching out to this broken world and help others on a daily basis. You are so very much a part of my having that desire and I thank you, sister-friend. XOX Sue G

    Thank you so much for sharing. I honestly felt like you & I were praying together and that was so cool!

    I just moved to Houston from Atlanta (my hometown) because God told me to and then He provided a job for me here. In fact, I have a great story about how God confirmed for me I supposed to move here when I came to interview & heard you speak at Houston’s First at one of your last ladies Bible studies there.

    My husband of 20 years died rather suddenly last April and left me a single Mom to 3 kids. Had to leave the 2 oldest in Ga for college and it about broke my heart, again. My youngest daughter, Hope, is here in Houston with me. We are going to Bayou City at Spring Branch and loving it! In fact, I’m headed to my small group out in Katy right now:) Planning on going to Vision Night –it’s going to be great!

    Ann says:

    Sweet Beth,
    Thank you for the update on the Moores. We Houston ladies have missed you terribly (and selfishly)! We got spoiled seeing you weekly & hearing the praise team. I also miss pictures of Annabeth & Jackson.
    Do you think you’ll have a Living Proof Live here now that bible study is over?
    That would be wonderful!

    Thank you so much for the update! I know your family has been through such a difficult season recently, and it’s so encouraging to hear how everyone is doing. I have prayed for all of you a lot. My own family has been going through a time of unprecedented challenge for awhile, and many of my friends are as well. Whew! So thankful for the presence of God and for your encouragement. Thank you also for the thoughts on Tabitha and ministry/purpose.

    My favorite part may have been regarding Jackson, as in “he does a lot (emphasis on the word lot) of kicking and that’s about that” followed by a glance at the camera. The slight pause then look said it all. You’re too much. Good luck with your self-defense. P

    Dear Beth, thanks so much for the update as well as the encouragement. I am almost 51 and it has only been in the last 3-4 years that I feel that God is calling me, guiding me, teaching me and giving me my purpose in working with my patients who have dementia. I love how you explained that our calling is what puts the “wind in our sails.” This is true for me each day as I work with these sweet people and their families who are looking for help, love, understanding and I can provide those things through the Spirit and feel encouraged and excited to do it again, day after day! God is good!

    Thank you so much for sharing with us! This video was great – like getting caught up with a friend I haven’t seen in a while. The lesson on Tabitha was very much needed. Very insightful! Sometimes, we get tired of trying and just need encouragement to keep persevering – this story just that. Renewed my spirit!

    Kim McCarthy says:

    Like many others I too feel a pressing to minister to others whether it is by sowing my time, a meal, money, prayers, or just a listening ear. All of us, as sisters of faith, are connected to one another no matter where we are physically. It is our faith that sews us together like a quilt and through this technical outreach on LPM we are a mighty force. Many things are possible to us . . . we can help the poor and needy and broken hearted. Thank you, Beth, for sharing your insights.

    Thanks for sharing your ministry & family update…I do love hearing what everyone is up to…and I appreciate you wanting to hear from us. My update is that I’m serving by mentoring a group a six young ladies (ages 21 – 26) and it has blessed me so much. My obedience is based soley on the past year’s lesson that God’s strength shines brightly through my weaknesses and I’m trusting Him wholeheartedly to lead this effort. I’ve found there were six holes in my heart in the shape of each of these women being filled by love as we go deeper in relationship with one another & God – glorious is the best way to describe the experience…so fulfilling, yet still kinda scary, not totally sure where He is leading, remaining open hearted to discern the path we are to go down. Finally, wanted to thank you for asking us to share our updates…feel there are few people in this season of my life asking “what’s up with you” and really wanting to hear what I’m doing to further God’s kingdom – they either get bored after one sentence or feel guilty (instead of inspired) that I’m following my calling from God. Appreciate this blog and your ministry for promoting & encouraging us to be authentic, loving, sharing Women of God, Miss Beth! Love you, too…

    Thank you for treating us like a dear friend. That is one of the reasons we love you! It was so good to hear about your family. I do pray for you every week, that God would continue to bless you, your family and your ministry. I just started nursing school (at 51 years of age). I was hoping and praying that the Lord would open a door so that I could work for a Christian ministry, but He didn’t do that. Instead He seemed to place on my heart to go to nursing school and then He proceeded to remove every obstacle. It is overwhelming and a little scary, but He has brought me to the place of constant awareness of being completely dependent on Him for strength, insight, wisdom… the very breath that I take into my lungs. I’ve always been a planner and have needed to feel in control. He has been slowly removing that from my life and asking me to trust Him with today. He is so faithful! On a side note, I had the privilege of studying Children of the Day with a group of ladies this summer. It was wonderful. I can’t say that I agreed with every point, but you inspired me to dig even deeper in the word. Thank you for that. Thank you for the challenge to persevere to the end. Love you sweet sister in Christ!

    Hello Beth, I wanted to let you know that after going to a church and watching your simulcast on Sept.13 that I am starting a monthly class in my church. I have named it the Love Class. (Ladies Offering Valuable Encouragement). It is going to be a class to give each lady some girlfriend time with their sisters in Christ and a lot of encouragement. I think this video will work great for my first class on October 23rd at 10:00. Please pray for us at Barton’s Creek Baptist Church!

    Thanks for the update Beth! It is always fun to hear from you. I wish that I could be in that room with Melissa learning Greek! Maybe someday she can teach it on a larger scale. As for me I am staying busy with work (behavior interventionist for children who have autism) and bible study. Your devo about Tabitha was timely for me. I recently stepped up to help with our Monday night bible study and am co-leading a group of 150 women. I have conquered the fear of speaking on a microphone!

    It was good to see your smiling face, Beth – I’ve been a Siestaville resident since the very beginning, but in the past couple of years haven’t had the energy to comment often. It’s easy to feel that my usefulness is over when my whole body hurts and my nest is empty – but God used you today to help me remember that even when our season of “going” to the poor is interrupted, our season of “sending” can still go on. Some long-timers here might remember that my only child has felt called to serve in a specific place in Guatemala since her first high school construction mission trip nine years ago. Now at age 25, Betsy is finishing her first year as a missionary teacher at Oasis, a home for girls who have been rescued from child sexual abuse, slavery and trafficking. They serve 51 girls, ages 3 to 18, and four precious babies born to 12- and 13-year old victims. My girl is in LOVE with the work God has called her to do in a dangerous country with few American comforts, and plans to make this her life’s work. I alternate between terror for her safety ๐Ÿ™‚ and great peace that this is exactly where she belongs. Thank you for your encouragement today, Beth! Big hugs to all at LPM who work so hard!

    Patty says:

    Hi, Beth. Three years ago I became an empty-nester. My husband and I raised four wonderful children over a 29 year span. Loved every minute raising them to know and serve God! I resigned, after 13 years working in school system, just as our youngest left for college in 2011. That fall I was invited to join a women’s Bible study (not at my home church). God was so gracious to bring me to this women’s group. It’s hard to wake up one day and realize your most important work of raisng children is done. Of course a mother is never ‘done’, but all the birdies had left the nest. At this first study, I was introduced to my first BM study. It was on David, and I loved it. Since then, I’ve been blessed to grow in the Word as I’ve gone through more books of the Bible w/ you: James, Daniel, Deuteronomy, Nehemiah (w K. Minter) , Judges (w P. Shirer), Hebrews (w L. Harper), a few more topic driven studies, and presently, 1&2 Thessalonians! For me, I thrive on the read & search–Q&A weekly homework. Gathering with ladies to watch video and discuss the Word is such a joy. As feedback to you, I DO like the journal pages in back of workbook where one can write out the Scriptures. It feels very personal to write out the words while progressing through the book at hand. Forgive me for my lengthiness, but as I sat around the tables with many wonderful ladies watching/listening to you share your heart as you teach what God has taught you, I felt my heart filling with love and gratitude to God for you, BETH. God is using you and Lifeway to reach many for His Kingdom. We may never meet on this side of eternity, but BE BLESSED & RECEIVE LOVE, APPRECIATION & AFFIRMATION from one of your Sister in Christ from Indiana! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love and Blessings,

    Thank you for the update Beth. Its always neat to remember you all are real people living this out in real life too. In my own update, the Lord seems to be hitting me over the head with His call to reach the poor. I’m working through Jen Hatmaker’s Bible study, “Interrupted” with the ladies at church. It’s weird, I kind of feel like Peter when he was cleaning off his nets when Jesus showed up and said to drop them back in again. Thank God He always shows up and gets us out there fishing again. This past year, something happened in our life to make us pull back in our giving and we haven’t completely recovered. I want to go back to how things were, but my husband is still distrustful and dealing with everything. As a wife, I don’t know what to do. Fight with him about it? How hard/how often should I fight? Anyway, I do see some areas where I can give more without it causing a huge family fight. I am focusing on those right now and praying that God would continue to work in our hearts – big time. You will always be more than a siesta, my sister. Love to you in Christ, Amy

Currently, I doing Priscilla Shirer’s “Breathe” on my own and finding a freedom of letting go of the past, especially in the form of paper…journals, cards, previous career resources, my only child’s preschool & early school years artwork. My son began working on his masters through a graduate assistantship that he really enjoys. After a 3 year inactive status and a personal spiritual battle, my husband has step back into being an active deacon. I am watching God work through my husband as a teacher of God’s word.

    Hi Beth, I SO love it when you “grace” us with your gorgeous face and give us updates on you and your family! I really needed this today as I am in a “seek” mode of figuring out what my true purpose is right now. I have been feeling a little down in that I don’t seem to be hearing where God is leading me or what He has for me at this time. SO, keep leading this group even if you think it is small – you never know who you will impact with even just a word. May God bless you always!

    Ah, Beth…this was so warm and personal. It’s Friday night in Columbus, OH. Our Saturday morning women’s group is doing Children of the Day, which is # I don’t know what of your studies we’ve done over the past decade or so. I am writing to let you know a personal blessing which came from your LPL event August of 2011. I heard the Word God had given you about “PREPARE” and knew in my spirit that was a personal directive, but didn’t know WHAT I was preparing for. 3 wks later I was laid off my job at the steel foundry here and it was less than 24 hrs after I’d finished my internship as a professional counselor. I was peaceful when word of the layoff came, as I’d been resting in the word “Prepare” and all you’d brought us that weekend. The layoff was Friday and I was hired the following Monday as a therapist. As a single mom of 2 daughters (then 17 and 18) I would’ve been devastated at the loss of a job. But your words of 3 wks prior still resonated in my spirit. I am now through with internship, residency and am now a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor. God brings women to my office as I pray daily for ability to use my gifts to bring hope and healing to the broken who’ve been left by husbands, had suicidal depressed teens, have lived in poverty and are carrying years of pain from childhood abuse. I just wanted to write to you as you asked for us to in this short video clip. Blessings to you as you walk out the high calling to minister our of your journey. I was part of the 190K who were part of your simulcast from Ft. Wayne. Am excited to continue to be The Woman of God He has called me to be. I love you, sister. Heaven’s gonna be a romp, isn’t it?!!

    Definitely needed some girl time this week. It has been a rough couple of weeks for me as all 3 of my support (closest) friends are being transplanted to other places. All for good reasons/blessings. Haven’t cried this much in a long time. I can’t help but wonder what Jesus is up to and we have had some long chats about all this. So glad to hear that things are rolling along for the Moore’s. You looked fabulous, especially your hair. Jesus is such a lover of women that I am thrilled to be one. As I wait on Him, I can work on following Tabitha’s example. Thanks for reminding me about her. All my love to you, Lynda

    Thank you so much for the up-date, Beth. Will be praying for your ministry and your family.

    This week I had several opportunities for the Lord.

    The Lord was tugging at my heart to go over and speak with this woman who was in a wheel chair and she seem to be unable to move her arms much. She had a wonderful husband who just took such loving care of her. He seem so patient and kind.
    It was amazing, but I really enjoyed talking with her. She had a sweetness about her. I am not sure exactly what God was trying to teach me, but I did think, “what if I had not talked to her and passed her by” would I have missed what touched my heart. What I observed between her and her husband reminded me how Jesus feels about us…His goodness, His faithfulness, and His trust. What compassion…What love!
    When we have nothing to fight against, we cannot hold on to the things of this old world, we cannot do for ourselves…what Christ has done for us and we are handicapped, we are left in His care, we are completely leaning on Him to do everything for us and through us….we will find true humility, His love and acceptance and His comfort.

    Another lady needed my help cleaning her house and yard. Her husband has back problems and he is unable to walk. Things have been very stressful for her.

    I always give our good clothes to the needy and bottles of water to those on the streets. There is just so many people in need. We are especially blessed. People need the Lord most of all.

    Thank you Lord for giving us all an opportunity to serve You!

    Dear Beth- I love seeing your blog and hearing you talk about your great family! This little devotional and “chat” was definitely what I needed to be rejuvenated. (I grabbed myself a cup of coffee as well!!) The devil sure has been wiggling his way into my head and making me feel like a failure lately. God is most definitely working in my life and has definitely blessed us through the chaos of the last 2 years. And He definitely put me in the right places at the right time this week, and brought new people into my life to encourage me and build me up! I love watching how he works in my life! I am leading my first women’s study group and we are ding Jesus The One and Only! We decided to start that study about 2 weeks before your Conference in Denver which I attended [And BTW- you spoke about Jesus The One and Only, if you don’t remember ;)] I was so thrilled because I knew God put me there for a reason, and I was on the right track!! Im so grateful The Lord has put you in a place of ministry because your studies have been life changing for me! Thank you so much for your devotion to the Lord and other women like me! God Bless you!!!

    Cheryl Wright says:

    Beth, thank you so much for this update. I needed to hear that you do life like I do, with lots of drama! I so related to what you said about since God is with you, you are good. The past six weeks have been a roller coaster with learning that our twenty nine year old son has cancer. We are blessed that his cancer is in stage one and he has a good prognosis. Through it all though I have felt Gods presence and the power of prayer and support of so many dear Church friends. I too am good because God is with me and He is good! I am still working on Children of the Day and so appreciated the chapter on Ministry. I am one of those gals in her fifties that has been unsure of what her ministry is. That chapter helped me a lot. I minister once a week at a pregnancy resource center and love it. It is so true about walking away tired but energized! I will be praying for God to show me how I can be a Tabitha and help the poor in more ways this month and beyond. Thanks again Beth, I love you and look forward to seeing you at the Living proof live in Wa. State in February. I am going to buy my tickets this coming week so I don’t miss out! Take care, and yes our grandchildren are delicious!

    It has been a while since I have responded on the blog but I have been following along, always participating as I can, trying to keep up (even if not online) with the siesta ventures. I have not been as dedicated the past year but every time I visit, the Holy Spirit reveals himself in a big way and of course it happened again today!

    I have been walking this path as a new babe (still very much a babe) in scripture about five years ago. I met you, Beth Moore on the pages of Esther while painfully numbly processing a divorce. I continued to fall in the love with God’s word through many bible studies including the pages of Breaking Free, Daniel, James, Jesus The One and Only, David Seeking A Heart Like His and currently, To Live Is Christ. I would need five more blog miles to comment on my transformation through all those pages.

    This past August I lost my Mom, she was only 69. I was just starting the study and it was the first week of recanting how we grew up in the word while getting an understanding of how Saul devoutly lived the word as a child. I had a rough ride together with her, I did not grow up in the word with her but I know she had Jesus in her heart, she had a good heart and He knew her heart. I am very grateful I got to see her and had the chance to say this to her personally. It was a tough week of homework, but my relationship with God is anchored in bible studies. I pressed on because I know it is where he will reveal himself to me, as a servant of his has put text together to bring his scripture alive. This week we watched session 5 on the Ingathering and the Hope. My heart is so broken with loss on top of loss which seems to have brought back past losses. My bible study sisters laid there hands on me and prayed over me before we watched your video after great apprehension for me to even bring myself to our gathering, knowing it is where I should be. And their you where Beth, healing my heart with God’s word. He is so provident. You helped me to really start to see his presence in Esther and ‘Whoa’, it gets more intense each time.

    I can truly say that this is the lowest point of my life. But, with unexplainable, indescribable passionate hope I can say it is the highest point of my life as well. I am so in love with Jesus the person and the truth in the word that is brought to life for me through his beautiful servants, you being such a pivotal light on my path these past five years. I have participated as if in front of the stage in a few of your simulcast (the worship music rocks!). I found the taped segments on lifeway and was so excited to be able to get my ‘gift of getting God’s word via visual Beth Moore’ fix any time I wanted!

    Sometimes, in a season such as this for me, me heart starts to wander from what I know in my head to be Truth.
    As usual today you spoke to my heart and helped to heal my soul with your delivery of a personal message for me. It was 1:30 AM when I sat down and of course I had to pause to get a cup of ‘decaf’ hazelnut coffee before proceeding past your first descriptive few minuets. I settled in with my wounded broken heart and soon started to soar. Your continual testimony of loving and being in love with Jesus would be inspirational enough on it’s own, then you knocked on the door of my heart and changed it’s landscape. I do not put you on a pedestal, but I do praise our God who made you the vessel that you are and keeps molding, remolding. I Thank You for your authenticity and wholehearted love projected our way.

    I do not know you as you live on this earth but I met you in God’s word and I know you in God’s word in a way I can not articulate. My heart leaps when you tie the meanings of the words together in the different translations and languages. I am intrigued when you prep us for a deep dive into theology through your text. I stay with you every step of the way when you really start talking with your hands, body language to deliver a dear to you message. You have truly taught me to take to my knees. For so many God delivered through you ‘things’…
    Thank You. Thank You. Thank You.

    Hi, Beth, thanks for the chat! It was fun to have some coffee ‘together’ and hear how things are going with you and your family. You all are regularly in my prayers. As I type this, I am sitting in McKinney, Texas checking it out to see if I could live here. I have the opportunity to move to this area for my job from suburban Los Angeles. Am trying to discern God’s will. It is a huge move in every way. I confess I am a nervous wreck about it and am having all kinds of big emotions so that I am not trusting how I feel. Would so appreciate your prayers for God’s will to be done. I will go or stay, as long as I know I am where He wants me to be.

    Thank you, and may God continue to bless you and your family.

    I was hoping this update would give us info about your breast cancer scare. We are now doing Children of the Day, and you mention it twice in the study, but it has been some time, so I’m wondering if all is well with your soul? (I wanted to say all is well with your boobs, but…) I understand this is a sensitive subject, but since you gave us the info, we would be blessed to know what your current status is. On a personal note, I am a 16-year breast cancer survivor, and I pray your news is as good. Our group couldn’t love you more; even if we actually “knew” you! Thanks so much for all of your studies; we have been richly blessed by them.
