More About beth moore
Beth Moore was born on an Army base in Green Bay, Wisconsin, during what her father describes as the worst thunderstorm the city had seen in five years. He affectionately says the Lord brought her into the world with a drum roll. The fourth child of a retired Army major and a homemaker, Beth was raised in Arkadelphia, Arkansas. Her father managed the local cinema where each of her four siblings had a role to play. Beth’s job was to hand out samples of popcorn and soda. Growing up in the theater had its perks. Sometimes Beth would be allowed to slip into a movie and take with her a pickle bag full of popcorn and a Dixie cup of Coke.
There in a theater chair, wide-eyed and full of Coke, Beth began a lifelong love for stories. She loved to tell them, write them, and hear them. But the story that captured her heart and consumed her life was not told in a movie theater. It was told in Sunday School-the story of Jesus-a Savior who loved children thought she was special. A seed was planted in her young heart that would grow to mark her life with a passionate love for Christ.
At 18 Beth sensed God’s call to work for Him. Although she couldn’t imagine what that would mean, she made it her goal to say yes to whatever He asked. Beth graduated from Southwest Texas State University with a degree in political science. She later received an honorary in humanities from Howard Payne University. She married Keith in 1978, and now daughters Amanda and Melissa have joined the family. As a young wife and mother, Beth began speaking at luncheons and retreats, Mother’s Day Out, and teaching Christian aerobics.
Beth took a Bible doctrine class at her church taught by Buddy Walters, a former college football player who taught the Scriptures with tears streaming down his cheeks. She fervently prayed for such a passion for God’s Word. It was Buddy who first taught Beth, along with Keith, how to study the Bible.
Beth founded Living Proof Ministries in 1994 to teach women how to love and live on God’s Word. She has written numerous books and Bible studies, including Breaking Free, Believing God-Hc, and The Patriarchs: Encountering the God of Abraham, Issac & Jacob, Leader's Kit, read by women of all ages, races, and denominations. American missionaries and expatriates have taken Beth’s Bible study groups up all over the world. Living Proof Live conferences are in all 50 states; attended by more than 658,000 women. Ever the storyteller, Beth is known to pepper her teaching with stories and poems written from the perspective of pertinent characters. She communicates with great energy, passion, humor, warmth, and grace. Beth attends Houston’s First Baptist Church, where she hosts an interdenominational Tuesday-night Bible study for women in her city.

Reviews - What do customers think about My Child My Princess-Gift Edition (Not Available-P?
Appealing to Princess and to "Tomboy" Nov 13, 2008
Both of my granddaughters enjoyed this story even though they are of different personality styles. It is a beautifully written Prodigal Son story about choices and forgiveness without any religious connotations so I can even use it in a public school setting.
Wonderful story - purchase larger print edition Jul 3, 2008
I first read this book in a Christian bookstore. The story stuck with me and I eventually ordered it. I didn't pay attention to the size of book I was ordering. At just over 5 inches square, the text is quite small.
My children and I discuss the parable and they like the story. I love the illustrations.
I only gave this version 4 stars because I highly recommend getting the larger, more readable print.
Good for any age Jul 1, 2008
This is a wonderful story incorporating many Biblical principles. The first time I read the story I thought first of what a neat picture of the heavenly Father it provided, and then with fondness of my own "daddy" who was similarly strict and loving. The larger, multicolor edition is ideal for a child; the small, sepia-toned edition makes a nice gift for an adult or teen.
My Child, My Priness Apr 1, 2008
The book is very small. However, it is a great book for a young girl.
Great children's story Jan 23, 2008
This was an excellent children's story about the love of a father and forgiveness. Parelled with the love of the Father. Can't wait until my granddaughter really understands the meaning.
