She has written numerous books and Bible studies that have been read by women of all ages, races, and denominations. Through the years, American missionaries and expatriates have taken the Bible studies overseas, resulting in Beth Moore Bible study groups popping up all over the world. Beth’s Living Proof Live conferences have taken her to all fifty states since 1994. She’s been married to Keith since 1978 and taught an weekly Bible study for women in her city at Houston’s First Baptist Church for 15 years.
