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...

Why Moms Like Me Need Mentors

Jan 22, 2019

By Shannon Clark

As a mom of three "littles," drained is a word I often find myself using to describe my state of being – physically, mentally, emotionally, even spiritually drained. Renewal is a word I long for and wish I had more often. In reality, it’s not even just a desire, it’s a need. In order to be a better mom, I need to be renewed. I need alone time. I need quiet...

Choosing Rest

Aug 20, 2018

by Nancy Lindgren

You haven’t heard much from us this summer because as a ministry we tried to pull back and take time to rest. I can honestly say, “It has been so wonderful!”

For me personally, I took the month of July off from the “work” of ministry. It was a month of not taking naps everyday in the hammock (which isn’t a bad thing!) or heading to the...

A Peek Inside Our Mentoring Relationship

Mar 14, 2018

by Nancy Lindgren

I want you all to meet my dear friend and mentee, Taryn. We first met at her church last summer when I offered to help her women’s ministry team launch a mentoring ministry. My heart was quickly drawn to Taryn. She is a sweet 24-year old, single mom to a 6-year old daughter. I immediately saw such great potential in her. Later I found out that she was leading a...

Billy Graham saw Jesus face-to-face yesterday. What a celebration it must have been!

I’ve been reading and watching so many people share about the impact his life has made on them.

Several things stand out to me . . .

He loved well. He loved God and he loved people. He loved the important, well-known people. He also...

Answering a Heart-Pounding Call

Feb 08, 2018

It's such an honor to have Carol Madison as our guest blogger this week. I love her heart for mentoring in prayer - it really aligns with what we're all about here at MORE Mentoring. As you will read below, God used the movie War Room to stir my heart, as well, and ask Him to raise up mentors with a passion to pray. Carol is a big answer to that prayer!

The Invitation, Initiation and Expectation

Feb 01, 2018

by Nancy Lindgren

 

As I shared in my last blog post, my word for 2018 is COME. It’s amazing how God has revealed more of Himself through this one word. He speaks of it all throughout the Bible.

It’s an invitation on our part to “come” when Jesus calls us but we also invite Him to “come” and breathe His life into every area of our lives.

It takes...
