All My Knotted-Up Life is Moore’s reflective, heartbreaking, and humorous memoir, detailing her tumultuous childhood in Arkansas and Texas, experiences that impacted her youth and her call to ministry, her rise as an influential Bible teacher and national ministry leader, her life as a mother and wife, and the upheavals that led to dramatic and unforeseen changes in the life she had come to know.
An incredibly thoughtful, disarmingly funny, and intensely vulnerable glimpse into the life and ministry of a woman familiar to many but known by few, All My Knotted-Up Life is a beautifully crafted portrait of resilience and survival, a poignant reminder of God’s enduring faithfulness, and proof positive that if we ever truly took the time to hear people’s full stories . . . we’d all walk around slack-jawed.
Publisher Karen Watson shared, “With a tone similar to Rick Bragg’s All Over but the Shoutin’, Beth’s wry observations and skill as a storyteller are on full display in this delightful memoir. She writes honestly and lovingly about the people and places and influences that turned a tiny, vulnerable little girl into the powerhouse of influence for the gospel that she has become. Readers will be captivated by the relatable and insightful story of her life.”
Moore reflected, “I saw this life of mine going differently than it has. I saw myself turning out better than I have. I expected to have more riddles solved. More people sorted out. More grays dissolved to black and white. I needed neatness from God. What I got was a tangled-up knot.”
