A Christmas ‘thank you’ from 4word’s founder

I love this time of year! It’s all about family, friends, and celebrating the incredible birth of our Savior. I also love to reflect on what the past year has brought and express my gratitude for every blessing that has come into my life.

When I think about all that 4word has been blessed with in 2019, there are many names and faces that come to mind that I would like to expressly thank now. I hope that, by reading this, you catch a glimpse of the miraculous things God is doing in and through 4word.

To begin, I am grateful for our ministry partners, volunteers, and staff. Without your gifts of time, talent, and/or treasure, God would not be able to work through 4word to reach almost 150,000 women in the workplace.

It was such a blessing to have Kim Dixon, Global COO, FedEx Office, share at our Impact Celebration Lunch this year how God used 4word to impact her through the 4word C-Level Forum, a special Local Group. Kim generously supports 4word because she has faith and trust in our use of her gifts. 

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”

Romans 15:13


God used Peju Akintorin in Madison Odum’s life through the 4word Mentor Program. I heard from Madison, and also from Thear Suzuki, Americas Advisory Talent Leader, Partner, EY about the positive impact of the 4word Mentor Program in Madison’s life. Peju, thank you for being one of our volunteers as a mentor. To hear more of Peju and Madison’s incredible story, listen to the iWork4Him radio show highlighting them and the 4word Mentor Program. (Their segment of the show starts 20 minutes in.) 

4word is blessed to have over 350 volunteers as mentors, Local Group Leaders, Advisory Board and Board members, and those supporting our Gala. We are so grateful for your gifts of time and talent!

“And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.”

Colossians 3:17


Our staff of six and many other part-time people and contracted firms desire to serve God and you well. 

“Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.”

1 Peter 4:10

As you consider the gifts you have been given and where you want to share those at the end of this year, if 4word has impacted your life, please “pay it forward” so we can serve God and more women in the workplace.
