Beth Moore has written many books, but she says So Long, Insecurity is the closest she'll ever come to writing an autobiography. Moore's life, like those of so many women, has been challenged by insecurities. But no more! She believes there is a cure for insecurity, which she says has become an epidemic. Women do not have to allow insecurities, or "lies," to cause them to miss life. Moore presents the truth as a way to help women experience authentic security.
The Buzz features an excerpt from So Long, Insecurity: You've Been a Bad Friend to Us. (Click here to purchase this book.)
Insecure Enough to Matter
We all have insecurities. They piggyback on the vulnerability inherent in our humanity. The question is whether or not our insecurities are substantial enough to hurt, limit, or even distract us from profound effectiveness or fulfillment of purpose. Are they cheating us of the powerful and abundant life Jesus flagrantly promised? Do they nip at our heels all the way from the driveway to the workplace? Scripture claims that believers in Christ are enormously gifted people. Are our insecurities snuffing the Spirit until our gifts, for all practical purposes, are largely unproductive or, at the very least, tentative? Maybe you can answer each of those questions with an honest no. The only reason I'm bothering to write a book instead of leading a small group, however, is because I believe if you can, you'd be in the vast minority. read more

Tal & Acacia have been working on their music for several years and are now releasing their debut album, Wake Me. Even though the process took longer than they anticipated, they see God's hand in all of it.
"We came to Nashville five years ago expecting to get on the road and share the gospel," Acacia says. "God's timing is so much better than our own, but it was not in our cookie-cutter mentality."
Tal & Acacia (pictured left to right) want their music to bring people closer to Christ, and their songs have specific messages that relate to real life. Acacia explains that "Garbage In Garbage Out" is a call to purity. "We struggle each day. ... There's so much temptation in this world to just watch anything, hear anything, say anything. ... That song convicts me every day." read more
