Beth Moore is a Bible teacher, founder, and American author who wrote several Bible and religion-themed works, including – When Godly People Do Ungodly Things (2002), Delivered: Experiencing God’s Power in Your Pain (2019), and A Woman’s Heart: God’s Dwelling Place (2007).
Moore is best known for establishing a radio program called Living Proof with Beth Moore as well as a Texas-based evangelical organization known as Living Proof Ministries.
She has been described as an “electrifying” speaker.
She was born on June 16, 1957, in Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA.
Beth was raised in Arkadelphia, Arkansas, with one younger and three older siblings.
Her father managed the local cinema. Her job was to hand out samples of soda and popcorn.
Moore was abused during childhood. She said about her family:
”Not everybody in the family was an abuser and not everybody in the family was abused, but because there was abuse in the family and an abuser in the family, the whole family was sick.”
In her late teens, Beth committed herself to a career in Southern Baptist Convention ministry, a Christian denomination based in the US.
“As an 18-year-old I really sensed the call of God.”
Beth holds a degree in political science from Southwest Texas State University, where she was initiated into Chi Omega, a member of the National Panhellenic Conference and a women’s fraternity, the umbrella organization of 26 women’s fraternities.
Living Proof Ministries
In 1994, she founded Living Proof Ministries, a Bible-based organization for women that is based in Houston, Texas. Living Proof Ministries focuses on helping women who desire to model their lives on evangelical Christian principles.
Some of these principles are:
- God calls every disciple to full-time service;
- Vocation and work are not identical;
- Work shapes identity;
- Work is mandatory;
- Humanity’s rebellion led God to curse both work and creation;
- By working with his hands, Jesus demonstrated that all honest labor is noble;
- The Lord worked 6 days and rested 1, setting both a pattern and limit for work;
- The God of Scripture works and ordains that humans work.
Moreover, Beth is frequently a guest on LIFE Today, a popular television program where she hosts ”Wednesdays in the Word.” In addition, Moore shares her knowledge and experiences on her radio show ”Living Proof with Beth Moore.”
Beth Moore got married to Keith Moore on December 30, 1978. She said about her husband:
“My husband has zero-tolerance for pretense, self-righteousness, or self-promotion.”
The couple has two daughters named Amanda and Melissa. Melissa holds a Master’s degree in Biblical Exegesis.
In 2018, Moore told the audience at the Southern Baptist Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission’s national conference that her primary parenting goal was for her daughters to know Jesus is everything.
Both of her daughters are involved with Living Proof Ministries. For instance, Melissa is employed full-time as a research assistant, co-teacher, and cowriter, while Amanda serves on the board of directors.
Beth lives with her family in Houston, Texas, USA.
Moore has written several books and Bible studies that have been read by women of all denominations, races, and ages.
Some of her books include:
- The Undoing of Saint Silvanus;

”Christian leaders, LEAD. Do not shrink back in cowardice. Be bold. Be clear. Do not assume people know where you stand.”
”I want to ask a favor of you friends. Accept that I’ll always have haters. The best thing to do with most is to ignore them.”
”I’ve lived long enough to know what I want out of life. My aim is to live & love in imitation of Jesus.”
”Nothing terrifies me more than someone starting a sentence with “Speaking the truth in love…”
”Jesus has taught me not to fixate on the fears of what years ahead could look like but on faith for today.”
“The Bible is the Word of God, crucial to knowing Him, but it’s not God.”
”I know good fun when I’m having it and I also know when I’m being dismissed and ridiculed.”
