Not Enough

May 15, 2019

by Nancy Lindgren

Do you know how valuable you are? You may not hear it spoken to you in a way that you would like to hear, but the truth is your worth does not depend on someone telling you, showing you, or giving you something. Your value depends on what God says and He says you are a daughter of the King and you are worth far more than precious gems and jewels.

I was reading Proverbs...

Spiritual Mothers Arise

May 07, 2019

by Nancy Lindgren

Village life in Israel ceased, ceased until I, Deborah, arose, arose a mother in Israel. Judges 5:7

As we near Mother’s Day, I want to ask you a question: ”Who is your spiritual mother?”

Who has had an impact on your life by modeling for you what it looks like to love Jesus and walk with Him?

Who has influenced you by commending to you the greatness of God?

What is a Mentee Looking for in a Mentor?

May 01, 2019

by Nancy Lindgren

Oftentimes the word “mentor” can be intimidating and the expectations seem way beyond who we think we are or what we can offer. The ministry of MORE Mentoring defines a mentor this way:

One who has a little more experience, who comes alongside another and points them to Jesus.

Now that doesn’t seem so hard!

I’ve found that a mentee is really...

What is a Mentor Looking for in a Mentee?

Apr 10, 2019

by Nancy Lindgren

A mentor can feel a lot of pressure to live up to what a mentee might be looking for or needing in a mentor. If a mentee will keep these 5 A’s in mind when pursuing a mentor, it will help assure the mentor that she is making an impact on your life.
 
You don’t even have to ask the question, “Will you be my mentor?” Sometimes it’s just...

Walk and Point and Pray

Apr 03, 2019

By Joy Ostrom

Recently, I have been pondering the words "walk and point and pray" as they apply to mentoring and my own personal walk with the Lord.

As I walk with Him, He points to places in me that I need to release to Him. The question is: Am I willing to hear, willing to look, willing to agree with Him? As He points things out, do I trust Him?

Walking closely with Him, I know He will equip...

To. Get. Her.

Mar 20, 2019

by Shannon Clark

The word together takes me back to the second grade when it was one of my spelling words. My best friend and I would seek out ways to help us remember some of the harder or longer words. In this case, we had the trick of breaking it down to a simple phrase, “to get her.” Oddly enough, twenty-seven years later, this little phrase carries such a weight of significance...

A Journey Paved With Promises

Mar 14, 2019

By Nancy Lindgren

I recently came across a well-worn piece of paper in my Bible of a list of promises God has given directly to me and a list of promises that I have given to God. It's a list I've compiled over the past 15 years and one thing is clear: all of God’s promises are “Yes!” and “Amen!” in Jesus.

I believe these promises are true and they are...

You Are Welcome!

Mar 07, 2019

by Fran Goodrich

You are welcome. We say those words all the time. It's pretty automatic – the courteous response when someone thanks us. But in mentoring, those words need to be at the forefront of our mind and our hearts! They are the crucial starting point of meaningful conversation. We may not speak them audibly, but everything about us needs to communicate a...

4 Essentials for Effective Mentoring

Feb 27, 2019

by Fran Goodrich

Mentoring is something I’ve grown into accidentally rather than intentionality. A few relationships turned into walking alongside others who weren’t quite as far down the road.

Over time I realized that in these relationships, what my mentee wanted was someone who would listen and encourage, someone who would care for her through the ups and downs, someone who would...

The Art of Being Loved Well

Feb 20, 2019

by Kristen Hallinan

As I sat there bawling my eyes out, Shelly, my mentor of seven years squeezed my hands and nodded with compassion. I had spent the past year working after years of staying at home and the balancing act wasn’t going well. I was blaming every little nuance on my absence and desperately needed her wisdom to bring me back to truth. Her words to me that day were comforting...
