A Place for Every Woman
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. 2 Corinthians 3:16-18 MSG
Yes, we believe these promises shared by Paul to the Corinthians are as true for us today.
We believe we can experience this freedom and transformation in Christ.
We believe that is the kind of work that God wants to accomplish in us, which is not only good for us but also the impact it will have on the next generation.
We're committed to making biblical truth simple, relevant, and applicable for every season and stage of life, with the desire to see women like you equipped to pass on more of God to the next generation.
It's time for you to experience the life you were made for . . . a life of real connections and purpose that comes from a deepening relationship with God, aligning with His Word, and embracing the many callings He's set apart for you.

The M.O.R.E. T.O. B. E. Manfiesto
The M.O.R.E. T.O. B.E. Manifesto is a series of principles rooted in scripture that serve as the core principles for becoming the women God intended. Yes, we believe that through God's work in us, by the power of the Holy Spirit, we can become women who are more bright, more beautiful, and more like Jesus.
It’s not about us doing more, but rather believing that God wants to accomplish more in us as we encounter Him afresh each day, steep our minds in His Word, and embrace His radically transforming love in every part of our lives.
I will make connecting with God a top priority by spending time with Him each day, reading His Word, speaking out my heart’s concerns, listening for His still small voice, so that I may draw deeper into His love, get to know His character and commands personally, and live in such a way that gives Him honor and glory (Psalm 119:15; Hebrews 4:12).
We’re all about studying the Word and making it easy for you to do so. Grab the Encounter God resource to get started.
I will offer my whole heart, mind, body, and soul to the Lord as my spiritual act of worship, recognizing that God adopted me into His family by faith in Jesus Christ as my Lord and designed me to serve in His body to accomplish His Kingdom purposes (Deuteronomy 6:5, 30:6; Matthew 22:37; Romans 8:1, 12; Ephesians 3).
We believe that God wants to use us in His kingdom purposes. But discovering what that looks like isn’t always easy. That’s why we offer an array of coaching programs to meet you right where you are and help you discover how He wants to work in you and through you.
I will rest from ceaselessly striving to please, perform, and produce as I choose to receive the gift of Sabbath and trust God with what is left undone, knowing He is producing fruit in me and through me by the work of the Holy Spirit, recognizing my tendency to make idols out of people and things instead of worshipping the One True God (Deuteronomy 4:23, Matthew 6:20, Romans 1:20; Genesis 2:3-3; Matthew 11:29; Hebrews 4:9-10; Galatians 5:22-23).
We’re committed to practicing the Sabbath at More to Be, so join us in that practice. We don’t post or respond to comments or emails from Saturday at 6 pm through Sundays at 6 pm.
I will embrace the reality that I am sinner living in a fallen world, raised by sinners and connected in community with sinners, in which I will get hurt and hurt others intentionally and unintentionally, and thereby need to bring it all before God (and, if needed, the support of a counselor, coach, or pastor) to experience His forgiveness and healing work and not allow my pain to become someone else’s problems (Romans 3:23, 12:18; Colossians 1:13-14, 3:15).
We’re committed to becoming healed and whole women of God, which is why we advocate for counseling and believe in the value of coaching as a tool God uses for emotional, spiritual, and relational growth.
I will trust God with my all my life, resources, time, and loved ones as well as my insecurities, fears, worries, anxieties, wounds, and dreams, believing that He is more than able to protect, provide, and accomplish His plans more than anyone or anything else (Psalm 121; Proverbs 3:5-6; Isaiah 26:4; 1 Peter 5:7).
We believe that trusting God is a process that is accelerated as we steep our minds and hearts in His Word. That’s why the More to Be Podcast is devoted to thinking biblically and living transformed. It’s just one way we can help you in trusting God more.
I will openly declare to others that Jesus is Lord of my life and share the Good News in word and deed with whomever I can wherever I can, believing that I am an ambassador of Christ in every relationship and role I’m given, and appointed by God to be an expression of His love (Romans 10:9-10; 2 Corinthians 5:2; 1 John 4:7-20).
We’re committed to equipping you to share the Good News. Follow the More to Be Facebook Page for content that will always be bible-centered to share with your friends and family.
I will bravely respond to the work of Christ on the cross by remembering that I find my confidence and identity in the cross and through my position as His chosen, holy, and dearly loved child. I am a temple of God, set apart to lead a life of holiness, abundance, and purpose (John 10:10; 1 Corinthians 6:19-20; Hebrews 4:6; Galatians 1:10; Ephesians 3:12; Colossians 3:12).
We believe that God calls us to be brave and bold in the stewardship of our lives in wholehearted devotion to Him. We are passionate about equipping you to live Holy Whole in mind, heart, soul, and body.
I will engage in the process of cultivating connected relationships with others through choosing to show up when I’d rather stay home, serve when I’d rather be served, listen when I’d rather speak, love when I’d rather be loved, so that God will get the glory and His love will be an overflow through me onto those who need Him more (Romans 15:13; Hebrews 10:25; 1 Thessalonians 3:12; James 1:9; 1 Peter 4:10;).
We believe that God wants to use us to be His love in this world. That comes not only through living for Him but stepping out in faith to impact others. We equip you to do just this through our Biblical Mentor Training Program as well as through Coach Training.
