Living Proof ministries’ Beth Moore reveals how she overcame childhood sexual trauma on national television.
Wanda Elizabeth Green Moore, popularly known as Beth Moore, is the founder of the Living Proof Ministries, a Christian organization for women in Houston, Texas. She is also an evangelist, author, and Bible teacher. Beth has been married for over 40 years to Keith Moore. They have two grown-up daughters, Amanda and Melissa.
“I had the great blessing of being raised in the Church,” said Beth, “three times a week in those days, Sunday morning, Sunday night, Wednesday night — minimum — we were always there. However, my family was very, very broken. It’s just that sort of the combination of the good and the bad and the ugly that can all take place under one roof.”
Beth was well-known for her bold and radical Christian beliefs, but the faith she has today was made strong through the ordeal. During her childhood, she was abused in her home by someone very dear to her.
“I also fell victim to a childhood sexual abuse within my own home,” she reveals. “I don’t identify publicly who it was, but I will simply say that when anyone that should be in a protective role around you becomes not the protector, but the perpetrator, I cannot tell you how that will mess with you.”
Overcoming childhood abuse
The Wisconsin native sat with Fox Nation to reveal how she overcame the abuse through scriptures.
“I would memorize scripture,” Beth recalled. “I put those truths on index cards… And I would take those things with me everywhere I went. And I would walk around the grocery store… I was just saying those scriptures over and over.”
Identity in Christ
Beth Moore ultimately found her true identity in Christ. A childhood pain has become a powerful testimony that molded has molded her into the woman she is today. Today, Beth is an advocate for sexual abuse victims and survivors.
“I’d make statements of ‘This is who God says you are,’ and ‘This is what you have to believe.’ And I don’t care how you feel — this is the truth. And it was that process right there.”
