About Elizabeth Moore
Living a life of hope & wholeness and sometimes writing about it.
I write because I believe God is in the midst my story. Because the truth about me points to the truth of the Gospel--that I was enslaved to sin and set free by Jesus.
A lot of people have told me that I am strong for sharing my story, but I believe that I am weak--weak and praying for God’s wholeness to circle around my brokenness. Somehow when I'm weak, He is strong.
All I know is the Lord has created me to write, to be fascinated and frustrated with words. So I'm doing what I'm created to do: write and tell you of the hope & wholeness coming out of the ashes of my life. I've been given a story to bring Him glory, so I'll tell it to whoever will listen.
When I was in a very dark season, the Lord gently gave me two words: hope and wholeness.
Two promises. Two pinpricks of light in the valley of death. Two steady anchors in the midst of the churning waters of grief and crisis. Two gifts.
He didn’t have to draw me to His promises, but He did. He's just that good. This blog is my way of discovering the hope and wholeness amidst the wreckage of my life.
In other words, this is just a blog about me and Jesus and freedom. The beauty from ashes. Stories from days and conversations and seasons.
I hope this blog writes Truth on your doorposts and your foreheads. I hope the words are simple, beautiful, comforting and raw.
I pray it’s a refuge, an encouragement, and a place of honesty--a place that applies truth to the everyday, the mundane, the novelties, the dark seasons, the empty seasons, and the laughing seasons.
Here’s the secret to the writing: it’s just me. Me and prayers.
I have every confidence that the Lord will glorify Himself, not me, through this writing. So if you find yourself pondering, questioning, worshipping, or sharing your own story at the end of our time together, then my job is done.
“Then in the name of Aslan, if ye will all have it so, let us go and take the adventure that shall fall to us.” The Chronicles of Narnia
I love my hometown of Ruston, LA, but I currently reside in Tyler, TX. I like to call Texas my healing place. Just like in Psalm 40, the Lord scooped me up out of the pit and brought me to a Texas. Since I've been here, I've found healing, Truth, community, and rest for my soul.
My professional life is a smorgasbord of various side hustles. I LOVE working part-time in Pine Cove's recruiting department. I also still work for Carrie Langemeier, an amazing woman who does ministry, design, mothering, wifeing, writing, and speaking. I love getting to soak up her wisdom and cherish her friendship. I also work as a virtual assistant for four other authors and am always interested in getting to know new clients. I love building relationships with these sweet authors, and getting to learn the world of writing and publishing is so fun!
I graduated from Mississippi College in 2015, and I'm practically sick with nostalgia at how perfect college was. I majored in English Writing and thought I ruled the world for about 4 years. Then real life happened. Now I'm just writing and working and trying to be faithful with what's right in front of me.
the whimsical extras
Everything you need to know about me is summed up on my Pinterest: I survive on books and coffee, give me all of the avocados, words are my jam, my hair needs help, whimsical things, avocados.
I love Gilmore Girls with every fiber of my being.
I am a podcast junky: The Happy Hour with Jamie Ivey, From the Front Porch, The Popcast, Bridgetown Church sermons, my home church The Bridge sermons, and I'm always open to suggestions (may or may not be starting my own podcast with a couple of friends soon!)
I feel like I should mention books and coffee again because of who I am as a person.
I love making Spotify playlists for seasons of life.
Currently can't get enough roasted sweet potatoes, fried eggs, avocado, almond butter, and RX bars. Also PLANTAIN CHIPS YOU GUYS.
I'm not motivated by competition and you probably don't want to pick me for your kickball team.
Lists and planners, come at me.
I am an extrovert, and I love traveling alone. Also craft beer flights (not alone).
That’s all you really need to know about me. You’ll learn the rest through blogs and pictures and real, actual friendship, but the important thing is that God has chosen me. He's transforming my heart to be like His. Not because I earned it, not because I deserve it, but because He is just that dang good. Receiving that kind of love is hard and beautiful and I get to live it everyday.
“For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love he predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will— to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves. In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace that he lavished on us.” Ephesians 1:4-8
