As I sat down and had intentional time with Jesus the last few days of 2017, I asked Him what my word for 2018 should be. I had some ideas that I was thinking about, but it’s amazing to watch Him specifically answer when I specifically ask.

He showed me a word that wasn’t on my list yet and all of the sudden it jumped off the pages afresh as I was reading through...

The Ripple-Effect Investment

Dec 15, 2017

by Nancy Lindgren

Last week I had one of those weeks where I was doing a lot but I began to think, “Does any of this make a difference?”

I have been so encouraged by the wonderful responses of many people as my new book, Together, has been published. For being a first-time author who self-published, it has truly been a blessing to see over 100 copies purchased within the first month and to hear such positive feedback.

A Peek At Our Retreat

Oct 17, 2017

by Nancy Lindgren

We had such a wonderful time at our annual MORE Mentoring Team Retreat in the mountains of Colorado from September 21-24! We did a whole lot more praying, planning and strategizing than we did retreating so we may need to come up with a new name for next year.
