Meet Dr. Vivian Moore, 2023 Mississippi Mother of the Year®

March 2, 2023


Apostle/Dr. Moore is a Licensed Clinical Pastoral Counselor with board certifications in Integrated Marriage & Family Therapy and Group Therapy. She is the founder and CEO of New Beginnings Life Ministries Int’l, Inc. in Germantown, Maryland, and Tupelo, Mississippi. The name of the ministry is its mission—to empower, touch hearts, and transform the lives of the people proclaiming the Gospel of the Kingdom of God for the 21st century. As a radical believer, Dr. Moore is filled with great faith and the anointing of God to perform the task given to her. She believes the basic guideline for every believer is revealed in Mark 16:17-18, which says: And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; they shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick and they shall recover.

What surprises you most about being a mom?

The unconditional love as a mother to my children as well as the love I share for children in my surroundings and communities. As a mother, learning the uniqueness of each child’s personality and the discovery of each child’s response to learning and exploring the new adventures in their lives.

Who has been impactful in your journey as a mother?

Growing up in a loving home with a mother and father full of love and security has impacted my journey as a mother. Along with prayer and weekly bible study, and a sturdy foundation built with much prayer. I carry the lesson to love, have compassion, and module the Godly principles of the Word of God.

What continues to inspire you in your motherhood journey?

As a mother and a Christian—to raise and teach our children morally what good and evil are from the Word of God. The call that is assigned to me is a minister of the Gospel as an Apostle to teach and testify about Jesus globally. As an inspired reminder concerning our children, they are created on the earth to make an impact on the earth to bring change in the Kingdom of God and seek what they are destined to become on the earth.

How has being a mom shaped your life?

Being a mother has shaped my life by being accountable, responsible, caring, loving, and mostly giving in servanthood. Children expect mothers to always be near, whether in person or in their hearts.
