Our church is having a class on mentoring, and how important it is to have one. I have never thought much about this. It made me start to think about who I would want to be my mentor if I had one. I was wondering if a mentor could be someone that I have never met yet admire very much? The person I think of also lives many miles away. Actually I think of 2 people. I've only gotten to know them through my blog. Just reading about them and their lives makes me want to get to know them even more and meet them in person. I love the fact that they love God and want to serve Him. I also love the time they devote to the bible and others. They also have a positive attitude and seem to enjoy life very much. The more I read about them the more I think I have in common with them. What do you think about mentoring? Do you think it's important to have a mentor?

Oh Wandi....YES, YES AND YES, I do believe in mentors. I've had several that have influenced my life...and God has given me the privilege to mentor others. Some were younger than me and I just came along beside them, and shared my life, my struggles, my failures, my successes...but most of all I just shared the Word, and how God uses it in my life every day.
I don't think age is the question, but finding someone to share your life with.
Funny, you should mention it today, as I was thinking about my Wanda Mom Girls (young women who i mentor that call me Wanda Mom) What will I do when I move??? Someone else will come along to take them to another level, and God will lead me to new ones too.
Didn't mean to ramble...but you hit a cord...Yes mentoring is a good thing.
LOL XOX Wanda Mom

YES YES YES , mentoring is a great thing /. Pastorat home talked about mentoring and I also want to be a mentor to some one, or vise versa.

Mentors are very much needed especially in todays world. People have so many choices that it is very likely that they will chose the wrong ones without guidence. Most of my son's classmates are given no direction so they choose on their own. Big mistake. Go for it.
