There are women in the ministry that once you encounter them, their spirituality leaves a lasting impression upon your heart. It is life changing. This could be said of Beth Moore each and every time God speaks through her heart to others as she ministers. Although, we are the same age, I just recently came to know of her beautiful ministry. I thank God my encounter is perfectly timed.
~Side Note: Jenni and I attended a Beth Moore Living Proof Live simulcast together. It was an amazing time listening to Beth talk about healing and stepping past old wounds into a victorious walk of faith in God. The word the Lord gave to her for our conference [Oct.2014] was the Identity Declaration. It is posted on our blog as a reminder of how God see’s His Daughters and brings women together to share the Joy of the Lord.

I Thessalonians 5:12-14
12 Now also we beseech you, brethren, get to know those who labor among you [recognize them for what they are, acknowledge and appreciate and respect them all]—your leaders who are over you in the Lord and those who warn and kindly reprove and exhort you.
13 And hold them in very high and most affectionate esteem in [intelligent and sympathetic] appreciation of their work. Be at peace among yourselves.
14 And we earnestly beseech you, brethren, admonish (warn and seriously advise) those who are out of line [the loafers, the disorderly, and the unruly]; encourage the timid and fainthearted, help and give your support to the weak souls, [and] be very patient with everybody [always keeping your temper].
15 See that none of you repays another with evil for evil, but always aim to show kindness and seek to do good to one another and to everybody.
16 Be happy [in your faith] and rejoice and be glad-hearted continually (always);
17 Be unceasing in prayer [praying perseveringly];
18 Thank [God] in everything [no matter what the circumstances may be, be thankful and give thanks], for this is the will of God for you [who are] in Christ Jesus [the Revealer and Mediator of that will].
19 Do not quench (suppress or subdue) the [Holy] Spirit;
20 Do not spurn the gifts and utterances of the prophets [do not depreciate prophetic revelations nor despise inspired instruction or exhortation or warning].
21 But test and prove all things [until you can recognize] what is good; [to that] hold fast.
22 Abstain from evil [shrink from it and keep aloof from it] in whatever form or whatever kind it may be.
23 And may the God of peace Himself sanctify you through and through [separate you from profane things, make you pure and wholly consecrated to God]; and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved sound and complete [and found] blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah).
24 Faithful is He Who is calling you [to Himself] and utterly trustworthy, and He will also do it.
Father, you will bring Your Purpose of our life to fruition – in your good time and for your good pleasure. ~Amen
