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 Young MOPS group at her church and truly was mentoring many of these moms.

I was thrilled that Taryn was able to attend our first Come Away Retreat and bring several of those moms with her. We had some one-on-one time together where I loved getting to know her even better and that’s when she asked me if I would mentor her. Here’s...

A Life Well Lived

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 loved the ordinary people. Their status didn’t really matter. Their skin color didn’t matter. Their political party didn’t matter.

He lived well. Humility. Integrity. Purity. Simplicity.

He laughed well. He had a great sense of humor. He took God seriously but he didn’t take himself too seriously. He had a twinkle in his...

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 initiation on both parties.

And we need to know that there is an expectation from both parties – Belief and Action.

How does this relate to mentoring?

There’s always the question of who asks first. Do I say, “Will you be my mentor? or Would you be interested in being mentored?” There does need to be a coming...

COME

Jan 09, 2018

by Nancy Lindgren

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 Isaiah:  COME.

Come to me, all who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11_28.png

Maybe it’s because a few Christmas carols were still ringing in my ears . . . O Come, O Come Emmanuel and Joy to the World the Lord has Come . . . but all of the sudden this word came alive:

Suddenly, in an instant, the Lord Almighty will come . . . (Isaiah 29:6)

TOGETHER

Sep 18, 2017

by Nancy Lindgren

I wanted to give you a glimpse into the first pages of our brand new mentoring guide called TOGETHER that is soon to be available for purchase. Much prayer has gone into this tool and I'm believing God will use it mightily in the lives of mentors and mentees to draw us closer to Him and to each other.

FROM MY HEART TO YOURS

Life is hard. It’s messy. I have issues. You have issues. We need each other. We’re made that way – our hearts are designed to connect with others. In life, our journey will have unexpected twists and turns, sometimes that leave us on shaky ground. We can feel stuck, in a rut, and unable to move. And the enemy of our souls wants us there. He especially...

The Ministry Of Prayer

May 01, 2017

by Nancy Lindgren

This coming Thursday, on May 4, we celebrate the National Day of Prayer. I love that we can have a day set aside to not only focus on prayer but to actually PRAY.

Prayer is the foundation of MORE Mentoring. It makes all the difference in a mentoring relationship when two people can agree and believe together in prayer. Encouragement flows out of praying together because God is included and He is the best Encourager there is. He brings Hope, Joy and Peace.

Throughout the Bible, there are 4 principles of prayer that seem to stand out above the rest: Praise, Confession, Thanksgiving and Asking. Through prayer, we can have a relationship with God. If we want to grow in our relationship with God, we need to...

Don't Hog Your Story, Blog Your Story

Apr 03, 2017

by Nancy Lindgren

When I heard these words come out of my friend Carolyn’s mouth, I knew they were for me. The time had come to dive into the blogging world.

Why was my heart so hesitant and apprehensive?

I guess it’s because I don’t love to talk about me and my opinions. I would much rather sit across the table from you and hear your story. I love to listen and learn.

Then it hit me. The blogging world is a place where I can get to know YOU by giving you the opportunity to share your story, as well.

God doesn’t want me to be quiet about the story He’s written for my life and the same goes for you. He wants our stories shared so He can get the glory. It’s about Kingdom impact.

My story...
