Could revival happen through one changed heart at a time?
Founder of MORE Mentoring / Speaker / Mentor
Nancy Lindgren is a national speaker, author, and the Founder and CEO of MORE Mentoring, whose mission is to inspire women to love and encourage others through prayer-focused mentoring.
Nancy is the author of Mentoring Made Real and has authored/co-authored a series of books called Together — A Mentoring Guide for Mentors & Mentees. She has created a process for churches wanting to start a mentoring ministry and a course for training mentors. Nancy has over 35 years of experience in mentoring and loves coaching and consulting with those who desire to grow in their mentoring relationships. Nancy and her husband, Mark, are empty-nesters who have made their home in the Colorado mountains where life is a little sweeter.
It began in my own heart when I was a young mom. We had four children in six years so those years are a blur. I loved being a mom but I was also exhausted, sleep-deprived, time-by-myself-deprived and time-with-God-deprived. It was definitely a difficult season and while there were encouraging women in my life, I would have loved to have had a mentor ... someone who would consistently meet with me, listen, encourage, and pray with me – someone just a little further down the road willing to journey alongside me.
As my children grew, I saw young mothers wading through the same difficult years I had so recently experienced. I knew in my heart that God was leading me to be a mentor. Today, my children are grown and I have been mentoring women for over 20 years. I’m convinced that mentoring can make all the difference in the world. What I've come to realize more and more is that life comes down to relationships. That's what MORE Mentoring is all about – developing a relationship with God and a relationship with others.
The Simple Yet Powerful Four Pillars of Mentoring:
Seeing with Compassionate Eyes:
Intimacy over Information:
"A ripple begins with one drop of water. It can seem small and insignificant. But the ripples that circle out from that one drop create more drops that in turn create more drops."
Mentoring Made real
Fern Nichols | Founder of Moms in Prayer International
Nancy is the real deal. She has a servant heart and is intentional about coming alongside others to love and empower them to be all that God has designed them to be. Her desire is to always see others enjoying a closer, more personal relationship with their Heavenly Father through the Word and prayer. I love our times together of authentic connection with prayer as the foundation of our mentoring relationship.
Sharon Gamble | Founder & Director of Sweet Selah Ministries
You know a book is impactful when it prompts you to action. Nancy Lindgren’s powerful and persuasive book on prayer-focused mentoring did just that. Her clarion call to reach out and come alongside another woman is delivered gently with words of kindness and simplicity. I read it to review it and ended up emailing a young mother God put on my heart and offering to mentor her.
Instead of fretting over the amount of sadness and loneliness in this world, Nancy helps us do something and teaches us how with examples and encouragement. I highly recommend this book to all who are interested in helping another human being move closer to the God who loves them. I suspect all of us who answer Nancy’s call will be forever changed in the best possible ways.
Sandy Benson | Founding team member of Alma Stone Church, Alma, CO
I have only had the privilege of knowing Nancy for several months, but I can say that in that short time her passion for Jesus, her passion for mentoring, and her passion to see people walk in the fullness for which they were created have inspired me. I am part of a team of ladies using her mentoring guide together, preparing our hearts to lead women one-on-one in our small mountain town start-up church. My prayer is that God will use this book to encourage you to see your potential in starting a ripple effect for the Kingdom of God—you walking alongside another person until she is rooted and grounded in Christ, and then the two of you doing the same for two more, and then the four of you doing the same for four more, etc. I'm eternally grateful that God has crossed my path with Nancy's.
Debi Lydic | Director of Women's Ministry
I sat down to read a couple of chapters of Nancy Lindgren’s book, “Mentoring Made Real,” and before I knew it, I was on Chapter 10. Whether a woman is considering becoming a mentor for the first time or is a well-seasoned mentor, Nancy’s encouraging words are transparent and relatable. I had a sense of “I can do this” in the simplicity of the three words: Come. Be. Move. This book is filled with stories of authentic mentoring relationships and practical scriptural insights that give me great hope that “one-on-one, prayer-focused mentoring can change the world.” This is a book I can’t wait to get into the hands of our mentoring teams at our church.
