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...

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...

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...

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!

Typically, for our monthly newsletter, I share ministry updates, prayer requests and ideas for how we can partner together, but for this month I would love to just express my thanks to YOU and to GOD.

Verse for blog post 11.20.17 #3.jpg

As we approach this week of Thanksgiving, I’ve been pondering several verses in 1 Thessalonians 5. The first one is verse 18 – “give thanks in...

TOGETHER

Sep 18, 2017

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.

Information vs Intimacy

Sep 04, 2017

by Nancy Lindgren

I’m feeling the overload of information this morning. It makes me want to shout TMI!

There is information coming at us from all angles. . .blog posts, advertisements, social media, podcasts, books, etc. You name it. It’s instant and it’s constant. Most of it is easily accessible right from my phone. Can anyone relate? I can’t even count how many...

The Ministry Of Prayer

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...

The divine connection with Sarah happened on a hot, August day at our neighborhood block party. I was immediately drawn to her and found out that she was new to the area with two young kids. We had a few phone conversations after that initial introduction and one day I received a beautiful note in the mail from her asking me to be her...
