Faith is a journey and at times it can be a difficult one. One that is best not taken alone. We need to have the strength and courage to ask tough questions. We also need to have the wisdom to discern where God may be leading us. Also we know as Christians, we have the Holy Spirit to guide us. It is important to also have a safe person, a mentor, to come along beside us to help us on our journey. Not to give advice necessarily, but to help us sort out the messiness of our questions, doubts, and confusion. The mentor can also help to sort out what our true identity is in Christ and how it looks to live that out.
This book is an excellent place to start on what to look for in a mentor and how the mentoring relationship works. It is geared for a younger woman looking for a mentor. It is also a call for older women to be there for younger women, The author shares many personal stories along the way with truths she has learned both as a mentee and a mentor. There are many helpful questions at the end of each chapter to get started on the mentoring journey. This would be an excellent resource for any women's ministry group.
I received this book from Moody Publishers for this review.
