We know the 4word Mentor Program is a life-changing 10-week experience in which every professional Christian woman should take part. But don’t take our word for it! Hear from one of our mentors:
“The 4word Mentor Program is a critical platform to any woman who wants to take her career, family and faith to the next level in life. There is so much rich knowledge shared and learned about progressive work-life balance strategies to help women succeed regardless of their current situation in life. If you believe this type of mentorship and community can be of value to you in life, then 4word is for you!” – Rhonda Gaines, Mentor

Losing 120 Pounds, Through God Changing My Heart
Lisa Kilgore was in college when she realized her “freshman 15” might be something more. When she reached her late 30s and was well over 200 pounds, she decided it was time to make a change that would not only affect the numbers on the scale, but also affect her heart and mind.
