Dr. Arian Moore, the founder and publisher of Bibs & Business Magazine, graduated, for the second time, from Regent this spring. But when she earned her master’s degree in journalism from the School of Communication & the Arts in 2010, Moore was unable to attend the ceremony. She wasn’t out of town; she was in the hospital.
“I did not participate in commencement when I completed my master’s degree,” she explains. “I literally turned in my thesis in the hospital after giving birth to my first son.”
“It was an amazing experience,” she says. “The procession was the highlight for me, because that’s when it really hit me that I had finished; that I was now ‘Dr. Moore.’ … I started my master’s degree while living in Virginia Beach when it was just my husband and me. I came back with four children and a Ph.D. He’s a good God.”
The busy wife, mother, journalist and adjunct professor puts her Regent degrees and 15-plus years of media experience to use publishing Bibs & Business. The online magazine, launched in January 2018, provides tools and resources to promote a healthy work-life balance for working moms. It covers topics ranging from parenting to leadership to helpful recipes and is written by contributors who are living life every day as working moms.
“Regent prepared me to be a world changer because I was given the tools to go out in the world and honor God in any field,” Moore insists. “The integration of faith and instruction opened my eyes to the spiritual connection between our faith and academia, our faith and the world. We don’t have to be in a Christian environment to put God on display. His influence in our lives should be evident no matter what arena we are in.”
