Thank You, Beth

October 22, 2019

Back in the early 2000s, an amazing woman in my church took about six of us teenage girls under her wing. We would meet at her house every Sunday evening and go through Beth Moore studies together. The study I remember most vividly is "To Live is Christ." Game changer. We laughed together about her big hair (sorry Beth), but she changed us.

 

 

She taught me how to study Scripture. She taught me how to know Jesus, not just know about Him. She made the Word come alive to me in a way it never had before. She forever changed the course of my life. 

 

Last year, I told my pastor that I grew up thinking, "I want to be the next Beth Moore." I wanted to impact people's lives the way she had impacted mine. But I went to law school instead of seminary and found myself in nonprofit work. A few weeks after I mentioned that to my pastor (who had heard me teach a number of times in Bible study and had seen me lead various small groups over the years) invited me to join the teaching team at our church.

 

I'm the only female on the team along with three men. I don't take that honor and privilege lightly. And many times when I am preparing to speak and when I step on that platform, I think of Beth Moore and the impact she has forever made on my life. 

 

And when I see teenage girls in the congregation listening to me? I pray that her legacy continues on through them. 

Thank you, Beth.
