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.
It's been a life-long adventure of preparation, waiting, stepping out in faith and watching God do amazing things. I am a simple, ordinary woman who loves, serves and believes in an extraordinary God. He called me to start this ministry which is really His ministry and I'm thrilled to be able to invite you along for the journey ... together.
Transformation happens when women come together through mentoring. Mentors and mentees grow in friendship and faith, but best of all, entire families are changed.
