10 Be-Attitudes of a Mentee

Aug 28, 2017

Last week we looked at the 10 Be-Attitudes of a mentor and this week we will focus on the mentee. Let’s put an end to our thinking that we aren’t doing enough. It’s time to . . .

Just Be . . .

Be prayerful. Pray about whom God might be pointing you to ask to be your mentor.

Be watchful. Look for those qualities in another woman who reflect what you want to become. What are the spiritual gifts or fruit of the spirit that you see in her life and also want more of in your life?

Be discerning. Ask God to show you if there is any reason why you shouldn’t ask her to be your mentor. Once she starts mentoring you, make sure she is spending time with the Lord and truly...

10 Be-Attitudes of a Mentor

Aug 21, 2017

by Nancy Lindgren

Just Be for Mentors png.pngDeveloping those “Be-Attitudes” can be really difficult when what comes naturally are the “Do-Attitudes.”

As a mentor, we don’t need another to-do list. Been there. Done that. We also don’t need to have all the answers and live a perfect life. We need to . . .

Just Be . . .

Be prayerful. Ask God whom He wants you to invest in. Pray for her. Pray with her. Model for her how to go to God with every concern that is on her heart. Together your faith will grow as you begin to see Him answer your prayers.

Be available. The gift of your time can be the greatest gift given.

Be flexible. Consistency and structure do not always happen in a mom’s life. That is the reality...

Experiencing MORE

Aug 14, 2017

by Nancy Lindgren

I would love to hear how you experienced MORE this summer (which I can hardly believe is soon coming to an end). How did you pull away to pray, play or stay? Were you able to find stillness amidst the busyness? In what ways did you practice "being" rather than "doing"? What were your successes? What were your frustrations?

I thoroughly enjoyed taking the month of July off to really focus in on MORE . . .not through a worldly lens but a heavenly one.

One practical step I took was to set aside a week in July calling it my "relationship week." I took time to be with people - some were friends I hadn't talked to in years, one was a brand new friend, some were investing in me, others were ones whom I...

I Want MORE

Jun 26, 2017

by Nancy Lindgren

 

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen. Ephesians 3:20-21 (NIV)

As a ministry, we desire to set the example and model what it looks like to experience MORE.

For the month of July, we will be taking a break from writing, planning, and preparing. We want to receive in fullness all that God has for us personally, in our families, in our friendships and in this ministry. 

We desire to set aside this month to wait on God, rest in Him and listen to His voice. Sometimes that means setting aside even...

Come Away

Arise, come away my darling; my beautiful one, come away with me!  Song of Songs 2:13b

by Nancy Lindgren

 For 18 years, I believed God was preparing a place for us in Colorado. I didn’t know exactly where or how we would get there. I just knew I had heard His voice and His promise was that He would bring us out here in His timing.

My husband and I prayed for a ministry house where others could come to meet with God and receive rest, refreshment, restoration, refueling and recharging.

Well, God has answered our prayers immeasurably more than what we could have imagined! He led us to a mountain home in Fairplay, CO. The first time we entered the home, the sign over the...

Linda’s Impact Story

Jun 13, 2017

Linda Roszhart is one of our wonderful mentors here at MORE Mentoring. Be blessed by her impact story below.

by Linda Roszhart

Since mentoring is God's plan and design, I shouldn't be surprised that He took the initiative long before I ever knew what it meant. Our first mentors are usually our moms, however, in my case, I lost my mom to cancer as a 6-year old. God was faithful to His plan for me. When my family served overseas, He surrounded me with missionary aunts.

I was introduced to formal mentoring as a sophomore in high school--though no one called it that. God brought me Emily. She was only 23 years old.  She began making time for me, showing me how to memorize Scripture when we went for runs and how to...

What is a Mentor Looking for in a Mentee?

May 29, 2017

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 better to start off by asking to go out for coffee or take a walk together and get to know each other before the word “mentor” even comes up in the conversation.

I’ve found that a mentor is really looking for these 5 qualities in a mentee:

Action – Take the first step. Be the initiator. Oftentimes a mentor...

What is a Mentee Looking for in a Mentor?

May 22, 2017

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 looking for these 5 qualities in a mentor:

Time – The biggest need a mentee has is for her mentor to be available.

Trust – She needs to know she can share the hard things with you and that confidentiality is a priority.

Truth – Your mentee wants to know the truth from God’s Word. She also wants you to be...

Waiting Well

In the past couple of years, I’ve had to do a lot of waiting.

Waiting for our house to sell.

Not Enough

May 08, 2017

by Nancy Lindgren

I'm actually off the grid this week celebrating our 30th anniversary with my hubby. Can't believe it's been that long already! This is a post I wrote last year for Mother's Day. I want to wish all of you sweet mamas a big Happy Mother’s Day next Sunday! 

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 31:10-31 this morning and was, again, struck with the fact that I could feel...
