Part 1: Beth Moore on Writing Her Memoir
Part 2: Beth Moore on Her Broken Past
Part 3: Beth Moore on the Firestorm
That’s right, 4:13ers! Author and Bible teacher Beth Moore is on the podcast, and I was so excited to talk to her about her new memoir, All My Knotted-Up Life.
Not only did I get to read it before it was released, but I also got the inside scoop from Beth. And sister, we had the best conversation. She shared such interesting and encouraging insights from her life, and then we spent some time catching up.
Did you know she and I go way back? She even wrote the forward for my first book 20 years ago. Fun, right?
Well today, you’ll get to hear how we met and our history in ministry together. And then, we take the plunge into her new book.
But here’s the thing…
We had so much to talk about that I had to break up our conversation into three episodes. It was just way too good to leave anything out!
As we get started, Beth shares her fears about writing this book. You’ll hear how she received her call to vocational ministry many years ago, as well as get a glimpse into her broken past.
Then we talk about what was happening behind the scenes with her marriage and how her past was beginning to show up and really dog her. And, for the very first time, she shares about her husband, Keith, and the trauma he experienced as a child. Plus, she’ll take us through the testing on her life that almost took her down.
And finally, we talk about what happened in 2016. You remember! It was full of controversy, challenges, and criticism—it was the Twitter storm that changed everything for Beth and her ministry as she knew it. She also shares about her departure from her lifelong denomination and why she was willing to risk what it may cost.
Be sure to listen to all three episodes because, sister, you won’t want to miss a thing!
