Do you love a good story that unravels with unexpected twists and turns? Well, pour yourself a cup of tea and join me for a story that will hopefully peak your interest and bless your soul. It starts with our humble beginnings . . .
More to Be was birthed in my home and heart through more than a decade spent mentoring teenage girls, both one-on-one on my couch with a cup of tea in hand and in group gatherings we affectionately called Evening Tea & Chat (known as ETC). This model of ETC Mentoring was as organic as you could imagine . . . no set dates, no strict agenda, no formal curriculum. I know . . . it sounds crazy, but it worked.
Girls showed up and lingered long as we discussed every topic that mattered much to them.
But see, I didn’t want these girls going home empty-handed, so I created super short study guides steeped in Scripture and filled with life-application principles.
As these God-appointed ETC gatherings grew, I became increasingly aware that there were girls around the world craving time like this . . . time spent story-telling and laughing, crying and praying, reflecting and dreaming with older mentors.
I also realized I couldn’t reach the next generation alone!
Instead, I needed to find a way to raise up and equip mentors who would be wiling to carry out this precious calling in their homes and churches and school communities. From that vision, God birthed More to Be. In the beginning, everything posted and released was simply from the overflow of what was happening in real life. In a way, the website functioned much like an online filing cabinet for the resources I created for my own gatherings.
Within a year of launching, however, it became clear that simply having resources to use with tween and teen girls would not be sufficient to meet the need to impact the next generation. I discovered that women were hungry for more, wanting to know how to mentor and grow in their faith personally, and how to use the resources we had available. And so, my vision became our vision — yes, there’s a team behind all that happens at More to Be, and God refined our focus even further.
We realized that to impact the next generation, today’s women need to experience a fresh encounter with God for themselves.
The fact is each generation needs to be impacted by the one before. So we’re here to encourage that process with a mission to see women embrace life change and see God change their legacies.
We’re committed to making Biblical truth simple, relevant, and applicable for women in every season and stage of life, with the desire to see them pass on more of God to the next generation. How do we go about accomplishing such a feat? But by the grace of God! Practically speaking, we provide:
- one-on-one life coaching
- biblical life coach training
- mentoring training
- online courses
- downloadable resources for women and teen girls
- books and bible studies for women and teen girls
We count it a privilege to serve you and journey with you in becoming braver, bolder, brighter, and more beautiful through a fresh encounter with God for the sake of impacting the next generation.
2 Corinthians 3:16-18 MSG
They suddenly recognize that God is a living, personal presence, not a piece of chiseled stone. And when God is personally present, a living Spirit, that old, constricting legislation is recognized as obsolete. We’re free of it! All of us! Nothing between us and God, our faces shining with the brightness of his face. And so we are transfigured much like the Messiah, our lives gradually becoming brighter and more beautiful as God enters our lives and we become like him.
