First I want toTHANK my little brother for taking care of some blog issues for me. I will get this one day--this dog is not so old she can't be taught new tricks! So thank you David for helping me out.
Next, is to my friend Tracy. She has been away for awhile and she knows I have been praying for her. I got a sweet gift in the mail. A book on mentoring. This is a huge subject for me. I will enjoy looking through the book to see the great ideas it offers. I believe every woman needs a mentor. I don't care how old you are -we need someone who is going to hold us accountable. Someone who knows us and our history---this is not just a surface relationship. When I am in a mess I don't want to have to dredge up past history so that they will understand why I am where I am and what I am talking about.
The bible tells us in Titus that the older women are to teach the younger women. I don't think that means old in years--just spiritual years. Do you have some life experience with God to share? Do you have a story? Some young mother or new wife or single woman----they need you! God has taught you what he has so you can share the knowledge and truth. Some young woman needs to see that we are not perfect but that there is hope in a relationship with God. Alright I'll get down off my soap box. I do love my soap boxes.
The book---------Woman to Woman Mentoring by Janet Thompson
It has some really good ideas for things you can do with your mentee.
