Introducing…The Sisters Series!

Hey, Everybody!

God has been so gracious to keep us caught up in Him at Living Proof and inspired to do – or at least try to do! – new things. He’s added some of our very favorite things to LPM this year like Tuesday Prayer Hour, for instance, where we open our ministry doors and pray for anybody who walks through them every Tuesday at noon and like Invited, our monthly worship gathering for women. He’s also added incredibly gifted women to our staff who bring all sorts of new elements and opportunities to serve you. All of our staff members are so gifted and serve women actively and tirelessly in ways you may never see up front but they are part of every event and every opportunity we have. Not one is dispensable. We don’t have extra staff around LPM. Every employee plays a critical part in the ministry. In recent years it’s been impossible for me to miss that God is increasingly bringing us staff members who are gifted not only behind the scenes but also, I believe, in front of the screen. You’ll be meeting them more and more over the coming months.

Nothing excites me more than seeing women develop as communicators of the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. I have been very reluctant in past years to throw employees up in front of the screen or on the blog for several reasons. First, the more out front we are, the more of a target we become for criticism and ridicule and it’s just not fun to watch people I employ get subjected to that.  It’s flat-out unavoidable in our current culture. Second, I have enough trouble just answering for myself. Being responsible for every syllable that comes out of another mouth publicly at LPM seemed daunting to me. But I’m over that now and I’ll tell you why. Nobody gets it right all the time. Everybody has to have space to grow. Everybody at times says more than he or she knows. Our mouths inevitably overshoot our knowledge. If we’re only allowed to put people out there who can keep everybody pleased, then we need to close the doors at LPM and vacate the building because we’ve got no one to offer.

But what we DO have to offer is a team of women who really, really love Jesus, who have lots of joy amid lots of legit troubles, who have active prayer lives and believe with all our hearts that the primary way to get to know God is through the study of His Word. What we DO have is a team of women who are willing to step out there into the unknown and serve you at the risk of missing it at times. What we DO have is a team of women willing to do just about anything to serve you well and absolutely anything to be obedient to the leadership of the Spirit.

Today it is my tremendous honor to introduce you to one of our very willing team members. Please meet Selena Schorken. She’s been at LPM for almost a year and I was captivated by her the first time I met her. If I recall correctly, she’d only been with us a couple of months when I pulled her aside and asked her if she’d ever consider coming on screen with me. It’s not often that I have a fellow ham at LPM (I don’t know if “ham” translates to all of you but think the reverse of spotlight-shy) but these days, I have a few of them, and you can bet sooner or later you’re going to meet them.

Selena and I are teaming up together to bring you a new little element that we hope will serve you even if occasionally all it serves you is some clean ridiculousness. We are calling it “Sisters Series” where we talk about what you want to talk about. These will be 15 minute (or less) videos where we take questions or subjects you’ve suggested and Selena and I take them on. Our ages are separated by nearly 4 solid decades and that’s one of the things that we think might make it extra fun when it’s more lighthearted and give it more dimension and complexity when the subject is a little heavier.

So, what kinds of questions and subjects? You tell us! That’s where YOU come in. Think more in terms of conversations between sisters than teaching segments because of the time restriction but that doesn’t mean there will be nothing taught. We’ll let it go where God takes it. Just think in terms of entries that lean more toward mentoring questions or sister-like questions or very specific Bible questions or meaningless-but-fun personal questions that could be answered in a fifteen minute or less time frame.

You’ll find your link for entering questions right under the intro video above and, if you’re willing, we’d love to be able to say your first name and what city you’re from and your basic age group so that you become part of that segment, too. If you are entering a question that you want to be kept anonymous, be sure and tell us!

We love serving you guys. We hope this will be some edification and encouragement in a social media world where manure is constantly flying. To duck it for just a few minutes seems like a respite to us. That’s what we’re hoping for our new Sisters Series.

With much affection,

Beth

    How exciting! I live too far away to participate in the Tuesday prayer meetings. Will you be doing prayer field trips? Perhaps a group from LPM to travel to major cities to do a 1- year tour… just a thought….

    I am so excited about this new series. My friend and I have been actively talking about purposely mentoring younger women. We are actually starting this week with going out to eat and just investing in their lives to encourage them and us in our different seasons. I am going to love this new series; I just know it! Thank you.

    Eager for the launch of this project. AND to have a break from the negativity. Selena (Celina?) is so cute. I look forward to hearing more.

    Thankful for The Truth of The Gospel as living proof for true transformation and freedom being proclaimed and taught through LPM! May we not only see and hear about JESUS as SAVIOR but live CHRIST daily and experience Him as Sanctifier and Healer and Coming King

    Hannah Belle says:

    This is too fun!! May I ask if there are any timelines for how long this series will last and how regularly you’ll be doing videos? Can’t wait for the first one! Thank you for the way you minister to and serve us. It’s a blessing!! 🙂

      So glad you’re looking forward to this, Hannah! Not sure exactly what the frequency will be, but at least monthly I think. Hopefully more often. We shall see!

    Tammy Craig says:

    This sounds like it is going to be a hoot! I can’t wait. And Beth, we are sisters. We are daughters of the Most High King, Jesus! What a mighty God we serve!
    May God bless you both beyond measure!

    Hi Beth and Selena! I’m excited about this! It will be so fun! I’ve learned so much through the years of doing your Bible studies at our church Beth! Thank you for all you do! That doesn’t seem like near enough for what you have given me. You are loved and prayed for! Welcome aboard Selena!

    Looking forward to this. Any idea when it will start? BTW Beth Moore you’re one of my favorite teachers. My granddaughter & I are doing “The Quest” right now with the Bible Cafe on face. We LOVE it

    Lillian says:

    First, thank you for doing this and I apologize for this being a mundane question. (Please know I know what is most important and I have ordered The Quest book to participate in this study!) Where does Beth get the tops she wears under sleeveless tops? Or, what brand are they? I’m asking as a women of her age range who’s goal is to be modest, but not frumpy (or unbearably hot!)
    Thank you so much! Pray on, Lillian

    Vicki Constable says:

    The Sisters focus sounds terrific and I’ll enjoy following it. BUT I would also enjoy reading a new fiction offering from you, Beth! The Undoing of Saint Silvanus was so good that it will be my choice for our book club in the fall. Your sense of place and the wealth of rich characterization serves you well. Consider another foray into the truth that fiction can deliver, please.

    Thankful you all are doing this. Thank you. It is needed in my life and I think in many of us. I surely feel a need for SISTERHOOD in the Body of Christ and more support and a place to ask the hard questions and easy ones too. Thanks. IN CHRIST, Deborah
