Beth Moore, Giveaways

You Might Have Heard…

That I’m a little bit of a crazy stalker fan supporter of Beth Moore’s.

I plead the fifth.

I will say that I got to go to one of her tapings for her upcoming Bible Studies about the book of James and I got a little bit overexcited when she saw me in the audience and came and sat on my lap while she told everyone there who I was.

I blacked out for a little while, so I don’t remember the details, but I do know that she read from my book in the taping the night before, so if you buy that study you will get to hear it. I have no words for that. Let’s just say I’m going to go to jail for harassment honored.

I am so excited to be a part of the Lifeway Women team, and I can’t wait to tell you about the simulcast event that they will be doing with, well, you might have guessed by now.

A moment of silence, please.

OK. Moving on.

If you have your church book this event before July 1, you will save $250, so get crackin’! It is an incredible opportunity and I have been so blessed to have heard some of the testimonies that have come from being a part of her simulcasts. I have had a chance through my own writing to really get to know the women behind Lifeway Women and I can’t begin to tell you how honored I am to be partnered with them.

Years ago, I sat in my first Bible Study. Overwhelmed and convinced it was not the place for me, Beth’s words spoke freedom into my hopelessness. As many of you know, this study was a huge part of my becoming a Christian, and I can’t even begin to express my gratitude for the woman who first showed me the tenderness God has with women who are broken and desperate for the Lord.

I don’t talk about things like this on my blog because it’s a revenue opportunity (it’s not :)) but because I genuinely believe it has the potential to radically change your relationship with Christ, and if I’m not focusing on those opportunities, I am totally missing the boat with this blog.

To see Lifeway Women’s Facebook page, click here, and to learn more about us and about this incredible event, please click here.

You won’t regret it.

Almost a dozen years after I first heard the Gospel from a stranger, I’m still chasing the God Who forgave both of us and allowed us to share His love with so many others.

I would love for you to spend this September day with Beth…so get your church to sign up. You’ll be so glad you did!!!!

And for those of you who have done a Beth Moore study or read one of her books, go ahead and leave a comment about something you were blessed by…maybe a particular lesson/study or anything she said that has stayed with you. And because I know you all need some motivation, all of the comments will be entered in a contest to win one of my copies of “So Long Insecurity.” This book is AMAZING…

If you haven’t read anything by her or don’t even know who she is, go ahead and just say hello and I’ll put your name in the hat to win 🙂 Contest will end at noon on Wednesday….have a great start to your week!!!!

     I’m kind of freaking out for you a little bit as I read this because I have been reading your blog since the beginning (I don’t always comment), and I know what Beth means to you.  I am so happy for you Angie!  What an experience 🙂

    I have done a few of her studies, and they are all so rich…so so so rich.  Last year I saw her live at an event in Tucson.  She spoke directly to moms who have lost babies, and told us that they WILL know us and we WILL know them in heaven.  She was feeling absolutely led to tell us that in that moment, and I know I was there to hear it.  The surge of hope I felt in that moment was incredible.  I am so thankful to Beth for always being led by the Spirit in everything that she does.  I could go on and on and on 🙂

    I love you and Beth!!! I had never heard of Beth before I started reading your blog but I have grown to adore her. But to tell you the truth your kinda my Beth Moore. You did for me what she did for you. Your heart, your writing, and your beautiful Audrey are the reason I know where I will be spending eternity. ( I may also fall into the stalker category myself) You have changed my life for the better and I could never thank you enough!

    And for contest purposes I loved Beths Breaking Free! I also love the little tidbits that she post on Twitter

  • Reply Laura Rice May 23, 2011 at 5:17 am

    During a simulcast last spring, Beth said that there is a difference in being nice and being kind and went on to explain those differences.  She gave me a new perspective on who I was and who I should be.  I love Beth Moore!

    Oh! I am almost finished the study of the book of Esther by Beth Moore and she changed my life.  I am learning more and more that God not only values me as a person, but as a woman!  I also saw Beth speak this January At Passion Atlanta 2011.  AMAZING!  She is so powerful.  And Angie, I love this blog.  Love how your blog entries sound more like conversations with smiles and laughter that always end in a hug!!  And I cant WAIT until What women Fear is out…Can’t wait for the message that God wants a lot of women to read!!

    Beth was within 10 miles of my  house this weekend and I couldn’t go hear her speak. 🙁  Something about my girls dance rehearsals and recitals and the community service project my daughter signed us up for, which actually turned out being landscaping in the mud and rain, but a real blessing for a deserving home owner.  Ok, I’ll stop complaining, but I’m almost done reading Ann Voskamp’s, “One Thousand Gifts” (fabulous!) and would love to dive into “So Long Insecurity”.

    Angie-I attended the Des Moines Women of Faith Conference and I might be stalking *cough cough* your blog now :). I’m so impressed with your speaking abilities and your sense of humor. Your story in Des Moines didn’t leave a dry eye in the place and it helped a friend I brought who suffered 2 miscarriages to finally grieve over those babies. Thank you so much for your testimony and for proving yourself  “as gold” (Job 23:10-12).

    I have read and participated many of beth’s studies and books- she is such an inspiration. God has blessed her with a talent to teach his word to women in a way that has tremendously blessed me. The one thing I have recently learned that powerfully spoke to me is that god has a purpose for me and my life. It’s up to me to prayerfully seek that out- he is faithful.

  • Reply Rebecca Bailey May 23, 2011 at 1:20 pm

    Aside from the Bible itself, So Long Insecurity is the one book that pretty much saved my life. I love Beth, and have done a couple of her studies, but that book – I promise she wrote it just for me! She is such a blessing – as are you, Angie! I love your heart ~ thanks for sharing.  

  • Reply Angie_Neal01 May 23, 2011 at 1:23 pm

    I love how Beth makes the Word exciting and relatable. Every study I have done has deepened my relationship with the Lord and stirred a hunger to know Him more. Her words are truly inspiring!

     The event sounds amazing!  I’m already checking schedules to see if we can juggle kids so that I can make it.  I haven’t had the opportunity to attend a Beth More study, but I did recently attend the Lifeway You and Your Girl event.  It left me with a renewed excitement for my God, and my daughter has been journaling prayers and speaking the Truth to her friends at school since then!  Praise be to God!

    I recently completed Beth’s Breaking Free study…and WOW! It forced me to explore the depths of my heart. It allowed me to see so many truths that I was not seeing before. It encouraged me to begin a deeper relationship with God. I also just read her book “Get out of that Pit” and would love to read “So Long Insecurity”. =)

  • Reply Jay Garcia May 23, 2011 at 1:53 pm

    I could also be in Beth Moore’s slightly obsessive/boarderline stalking fan club simply because she writes and speaks with a passion for God that ignites every ounce of my soul. But don’t worry after hearing you speak at WOF in Columbus; I stalk you too. I stalk you fantabulous ladies because you share in my yearning to have more of God than I can possibly stand. But not more of Him for personal gain but more of Him radiating from me so others can experience God’s love, grace, and forgiveness to the depths that I have. With that said, it is close to impossible to pick a single “blessing” from the works of Beth Moore but I can say that because of her fervor to serve the Lord; my life has been changed. My walk in Him is constantly renewed and my love for Him grows deeper everytime I journey with Beth through one of her studies or novels. Thank you both for being “Oaks of Righteousness”. His splendor radiating through you helps keep me rooted in Him, provides life to my withering branches when I need it, and most importantly allows me to plant more seeds for the kingdom of God!

  • Reply Carrie May 23, 2011 at 2:04 pm

    My small group shares your Beth Moore obsession! We’ve done many of her studies (Patriarchs, Esther, Daniel, David, & Revelation). My favorite is David, I refer back to it often. One of the lessons that stands out the most to me is when she talks about David building an altar on the threshing floor & David refused to give offerings to God without there being a sacrifice first. I come back this often, remembering that a true offering is accompanied by sacrifice.

  • Reply Aly J May 23, 2011 at 2:10 pm

    I was in the middle of the Esther study and there was the study of a word that meant the reversal of destiny.  I had a daughter that had been heading in the wrong direction and I had a moment of revelation.  I began to pray for her to have a reversal of destiny, I am only now seeing the fruition of that prayer.  That is only one of the many studies I have done and in each one it seems to be just what I needed in that season.

    I am currently in my 4th study (Breaking Free) and loving it. My other favorite was Esther. But, my MOST favorite thing was that I just attended her conference in Minnesota this past weekend. Talk about being in the right place at the right time! After a week of anxiety filled nights of no sleep and wanting/asking for advice all week, I attended this conference to hear Beth speak about untangling your life, your mind, and settling yourself when you are all mixed up! Truly a God thing! And to quote Beth….”Anybody know what I’m talking about?”

I have enjoyed each of them so much.  Believing God was the one that spoke to me the most.  I was walking around acting like I was happy and doing all the things I should.  That study helped me nail my sadness to the cross and let it go.  She is an amazing teacher.  She said words that I knew were true and I had heard them before, but she helped me hear the words that were written on my heart… words that were there during all the sadness, I just had to believe in them. She truly has a gift.  She is definately stalker worthy!

        No need, I already have a copy! There are many followers who miss the days when when you shared the experiences most of us could relate to…. Your book was wonderful, but I kinda miss the angie that I felt I related to…. The one who talked about her kids and parenting….

          i can understand what you are saying, but your first message was very rude (maybe if you re-read it you would change the tone). it sounds like maybe you were trying to be constructive in the latter (?)…i’m never sure why people take the time to try and hurt others like that. 

          i would have responded privately, but you didn’t email as i requested, so i will leave this here for you. i will trust that if you have anything else that is intended to hurt me, you will send it to me personally so i don’t get another email from a reader telling me someone has been unkind in my comments. 

          as far as why i’m not writing about parenting as much, it’s because i’m busy doing it 🙂 i had several readers write and ask me to just keep everyone posted on what i was up to, and i felt a freedom in not having to make every post perfect and literary. i apologize that this came off as self-serving; it’s the last thing i intended…i will reconsider my “update posts” in light of your comments.

    Love Beth Moore, and I am not embarrassed to admit that I
    am a bit of a groupie as well. I suppose if I am going to be a groupie, Beth
    Moore is safe enough to stalk. 🙂 Anyway, a group of women and I do a study every
    summer, chosen at random. We love so many things about her– her accent (we are
    from Illinois), the way she loves us through the screen, the true passion she
    has for Jesus– but the one thing we get such a kick out of is watching how her
    hair changes from series to series. She is such an inspiration in the way she
    lives her life.  The one thing that just
    sticks with me about her is the genuine love she has for her family.  I completely admire that about her.

    I had never heard of Beth Moore until I read your blog.  Then, recently, I was in a bookstore that was going out of business and spied a copy of So Long Insecurity – marked down 50%…and in Spanish.  My Spanish is sufficient for knowing when someone is insulting me, but not for deep spiritual issues!  Not even at 50% off!!!

    So…hello!  I’d love to have my name in the hat!  😉

    We are currently doing the Beth Moore Esther study… and I LOVE IT! One of the most memorable parts for me so far has been when she said if I p[erish I perish and started talking about the If…Thens… and how Satan uses them. It was so awesome and has really hit home with this worrier!

    I have had the privilege of taking several of Beth Moore’s Bible studies and I believe Daniel is my favorite one.  🙂  I am always so blown away by Beth’s insight and the incredible time she takes to delve into what the culture was like at the time that these Biblical “characters” actually lived!  The Daniel study really gave me a whole new appreciation for his faith and fearlessness living in the decadent Babylonian culture and how he powerfully influenced people (including Nebuchadnezzar!) with his unshakable trust in God.  It gave me a newfound confidence living in our own decadent culture of the power that real faith in Christ can have on other people!  God can shine through us no matter what the circumstances… and I think He shines even brighter in a dark world!  People are searching for real hope in these troubling times… we cannot be afraid to shine for Christ.  I admire Daniel so much for having the courage to do just that.  🙂

    I’ve so appreciated Beth’s teachings and God has spoken/affirmed many things through her for me. I loved from her Sept 18/2010 LPL simulcast the law of kindness she taught from Prov 31:25…so many rich words and things to ‘chew’ on 😀  Like Kindness is not weakness, it’s a disposition not an action, and kindness looks pain in the face.  It is amazing what God calls us to, what He gifts us with and how we need to remember and meditate on those kindnesses that we don’t forget them (Psalm 106:7).

    I can’t begin to recall all the Lord has poured into my faith walk via Beth Moore…but just last weekend I attended  a Living Proof Live conference here in town with Beth speaking.  I came away with 8 pages of convicting notes, but one thought that comes to mind immediately is that we need to be prayerful about the things we choose to invest our time into.  Beth said something like, “Ladies, we cannot do ten things well for God, but we can do one or two.”  It’s so easy to become entangled/distracted by things he has not called us to do.  I must keep my motives in check and seek Him to know what He has placed me on this earth to do “for such a time as this”.

    I love Beth Moore. She truely is a GODLY woman. I have attended several of her bible studies in the past but had to return back to work recently. I am looking forward to hopefully being able to catch this new one. My favorite was Daniel. Everything she writes has a special meaning.

  • Reply Heather Beam May 25, 2011 at 12:26 pm

    Years ago (and I still vividly remember this comment), I heard her say in one of her studies that rather than arrive to Heaven’s gates with her hair freshly fixed and her make-up and polish perfectly applied to present herself to the Lord, she’d rather arrive exhausted, disheveled, tussled and worn from her undying work for the Lord here on earth.  That visual strikes me.  And I love it most coming from her because she always looks so put together!  

    I had the enormous pleasure of meeting Beth when she came here to Richmond last year.  Sure, she was as beautiful in person as she is on screen, but her spirit shown through all the outer adornment.  She’s just brimming with the Holy Spirit.  Thankful God has called her to what she’s doing with her life and thankful that she chose to obey.

    Yes, I just left a comment on Beth’s blog asking her for help in the same thing I wanted to ask you help about. God has put the idea on my mind to ask everyone to write letters to the vicitms of the tornadoes about how God is still good, how he has not left them, personal stories of hope during struggle, and scriptures of hope. I will collect them through e-mail and then print them and distribute them to churches and shelters to distribute to the families. All the info. and my e-mail address are on my blog post, – Write a Letter to Help Tornado Victims.

    Would you please pray and consider sharing this on your blog, as I am trying to get as many letters as possible to these families. Thank you so much!

    Our “Morning Glories” group at church has done most of the Beth Moore Studies. We did Daniel awhile back. We decided we wanted to do it again this fall.  We learned so much from the study and the things that are happening in the world are so much easier to understand once you have studied with Beth and know what the Word of God says about the second coming and the rapture.  Love reading your blog.
