LPL Baton Rouge Scholarship Tickets!

LPL_box_leaf_LONG 2016

This weekend Living Proof Live is coming to Baton Rouge, LA!

If you can get yourself to the Baton Rouge area but can’t swing the cost or have never had the chance to see Beth live, we would love to help you attend the event in person. We have a handful of scholarship tickets to share – especially with you.

Here’s how we like to offer our scholarships: If you are thinking you would like to attend this weekend but don’t have a way to cover the ticket cost, Beth would be thrilled to make a way for you to come, and to bring a friend with you! Is there someone you’ve been wanting to introduce to Jesus? Or maybe that friend is new to the Word, or just less-discipled in the Scriptures. If this sounds like you, just give Kimberly Meyer a call at our office and she will set you up: Toll free 888-700-1999 (Not an 800 prefix.)

We sure love Jesus and His Word, and want you to fall more in love with Him, too! He is our great hope and joy. To purchase tickets, or for detailed information about this weekend in Louisiana, visit LifeWay.com here.

We are praying that God’s Presence would be undeniable this weekend at the Baton Rouge River Center!

SSMT 2017: Verse 12!

img_2489-pngHey Siestas!

I’m Kimberly, the Prayer Chaplain for Living Proof Ministries! I pray you are all having MUCH success with your memorization!

I have chosen to memorize my life verse in a different version:

Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praise shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life. Philippians 4:6-7 MSG

God has used this verse in my life to teach me to pray, and not to worry. Worry does NOTHING for the glory of God! Worry just makes us sick and tired…doesn’t bring the change we are hoping for, and will affect our health in a negative way. If we continue in worry, I’ve noticed, it makes things harder and more intense. It’s an energy drainer and joy stealer.

When life happens, and it does, don’t worry! PRAY. Let our praises and petitions shape our worries into prayers. Pray with thanksgiving, letting God have our concerns in exchange for His peace.  Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle us down, as Christ displaces worry at the center of our lives.

As I add this version of this verse into my memory bank, it’s clear in the actions for the ending reward! I challenge you to try it, the next time worry pops it’s head up in your sweet life!

Blessings in abundance to you all!

SSMT 2017: Verse 11!

jennHowdy Everyone!

I’m Jenn and I get the privilege to serve you through the TV ministry here at Living Proof. It’s a TON of fun! Headphones are often in my ears as I view the messages and my office-mates always want to know what I’m laughing at. Today it was Beth’s snake stick story from the Audacious series. If you haven’t ever watched a show, you are missing a BLESSING. I encourage you to jump on the Living Proof app and listen to some great teaching from the Word. O.K. That was a fun rabbit trail but, I digress.

I’m giddy that I get to share my verse with you. Scripture Memory is hard for me. The struggle is real. Right? I know many of you can relate. I’ve had good intentions and failed so many times. I remember very clearly last summer, Beth recited a beautiful chapter of Scripture from the book of Ephesians. She encouraged the staff to PRAY for a supernatural work of the Spirit to enable us to memorize God’s Word. It was a lightbulb moment for me. I had never thought about praying to ask for God’s help in this area. A few months later, I headed into the Entrusted Bible Study and began to memorize the book of 2 Timothy. It’s been quite a journey that has required the Spirit’s help at every turn. I collided with a Scripture many of you know…here it goes:

Jenn Hamm from Cypress, TX

“For God did not give us a spirit of fear but of power and love and self-control.” 2 Timothy 1:7 NET

Paul was speaking this to young Timothy who was beginning to walk out his calling. One of my kiddos struggles with intense fear and anxiety at times. I wanted to be able to pray this verse over him and teach him to wield his sword. I’m so thankful we serve a God who helps us in our time of need. There’s power when we pray His Word over our loved ones. When we have it memorized, we can use it at any moment. I hope this encourages one of you today. Keep pressing on!

Blessings,
jenn

An Invitation to Overflow: A Fabulous Event for Women Parenting on Their Own

Hey, Everybody! It’s my privilege to invite you to hear from my oldest daughter and my pastor’s wife, Amanda Jones. She’s letting you know about one of the neatest events our church, Bayou City Fellowship, has the annual privilege to host. If you are parenting on your own – for any among many possible reasons – and live around Houston or can get to Houston on June 16-17, this is such a wonderful opportunity to be encouraged, taught, refreshed and thoroughly blessed. We want to honor you and help equip you. You would LOVE the women of our church who serve at this event and our speaker this year is none other than Lisa Harper. You just can’t do better than that. She is a wealth and one of my favorite people on earth. She is also a woman parenting on her own, with the help of Jesus and a loving church and community of friends. She speaks from experience. If this event does not apply to you but you know someone who might be blessed by it, help us get the word out. We are trying to make the event available to as many women as our sanctuary can hold.

Thank you for the privilege to serve you! Such love to you. Now, here’s my girl:

Hi ladies!

This June our church, Bayou City Fellowship, is hosting our fourth annual conference for women who are parenting on their own. This wonderful event is called Overflow

BCF-Overflow_r1.indd

If you are separated, widowed, divorced, never married, have adopted, have an incarcerated spouse, have a husband stationed overseas in the military, or any circumstance that means you are parenting on your own, you are invited to join us for this special weekend. Overflow is designed for you to connect with other single moms, learn more about God’s purpose for your family, and leave feeling encouraged and refreshed. We are excited to have Lisa Harper joining us as our main speaker for the second year in a row.

You are invited to register your babies and kids up through eighth grade for our Overflow Kids and Middle School programs. (Space for kids is limited, so please don’t wait!) It would be our privilege to serve you and your family that weekend. 

If you’re interested or know someone who might be, visit the Overflow web site at OverflowBCF.com. It costs $20 for a woman to attend and $5 for each child in the program. If anyone feels led to partner with us by volunteering or making a donation, you can find info on the web site. My husband is hoping for a big team that can help him wash the ladies’ cars!  

We hope to see you in Houston June 16-17 for Overflow!

Love,

Amanda
