Description: Six long-distance friends took Titus 2 seriously. The women felt an obligation to mentor others as they had been mentored. The late Betty Bender of Columbia, Tennessee, provided the inspiration and the motivation for the women to form a ''Love Circle'' that came together each year for intense Bible study for a three-day period. Mentor Me grew out of this gathering. Each woman wrote two chapters to relate to a specific phases of a woman's Christian journey. The great benefit for the reader is twofold: she is mentored and she learns to mentor others. The writers call this ''passing the baton.'' 13 chapters with questions.
Reader Comments for Mentor Me:
Mentor Me reminds us that we can positively influence others by ''teaching, demonstrating and becoming lovingly involved in the lives of our sisters'' (p.8). Mentoring is not just older women training the younger, but being spiritual models seizing ''small opportunities that present themselves as you go'' (p.64). This book encourages mentorship for the first-generation Christian, wife, busy parent, mother-in-law, daughter-in-law, widow, and others. It also urges those in these life roles to appreciate and learn from godly, caring mentors willing to share their life lessons. ~Cynthia Guy, Myrtle Beach, SC
Our ladies finished Mentor Me last night. What a GREAT study!! Thirteen different ladies taught. Some had panel discussions, some had video interviews with new Christians, some were mother/daughter duos. We learned that regardless of our age, we all need mentoring and we all can mentor someone. Next week we are launching a mentoring program for our congregation. Instead of Love Circles like the book mentioned, we are calling it Tapestry. The idea is our lives are woven together to make something beautiful, and although the back may be messy - like our lives - we can still be a beautiful creation. We pray for God's blessings as we blend young and old together in small groups to build relationships and mentor one another. Thanks for publishing this book.
