 Mentoring: The Job Description for Every Christian

I don't have to tell you that the times we live in are tumultuous and scary. Our country's division is an outgrowth of a culture divided over good and evil, nonviolent and violent, truth and lies, God's ways and the world's ways, freedoms and anti-freedoms, vision and obstruction. These are not just political differences, these are identity and ideology differences, and my heart is breaking as I watch so many women fooled by the enemy and being led astray.

The Lord knew this would happen in every generation. This is not something new, which is why he had the apostle Paul write to the young pastor in Crete, a sinful place much like our culture is becoming today, the following letter:
For there are many rebellious people who engage in useless talk and deceive others . . . they are turning whole families away from the truth by their false teaching. And they do it only for money. Everything is pure to those whose hearts are pure. But nothing is pure to those who are corrupt and unbelieving, because their minds and consciences are corrupted. Such people claim they know God, but they deny him by the way they live. They are detestable and disobedient, worthless for doing anything good. (Titus 1:10-11, 15-16 NLT)

Paul's antidote for this corruption was Titus 2:1-8 where he tells Titus to have the spiritually older men and women teach and train the spiritually younger. A timeless truth we must maintain in our corrupt generation. Women are confused and believing the lies of the enemy, and it's not just younger women. I'm appalled at how many mature women I hear reciting the mantra of the news media like it's the gospel truth, when so much of it is opinions, innuendoes, and sensationalized fake stories to sell newspapers, sell airtime on television, and attract viewership. There is little to no critical thinking or searching for truth and facts.
And this is why I want to share with you again this month another mentoring ministry testimony I received from a church in Scottsdale, Arizona that has had the Woman To Woman Mentoring Ministry for 10 years! I don't care what type of mentoring ministry you help start or lead or support in your church, I just pray that God will move you to follow the job description for every Christian: Your job is to speak out on the things that make for solid doctrine. Titus 2:1, The Message.

Forsaken God? 
Remembering the Goodness of God Our Culture Has Forgotten

  Also available on Kindle at Amazon
My author/speaker amazing friend Pam Farrel's Seasoned Sisters group has been reading and studying Forsaken God? This was one of my visions for this book that Christian men and women would gather together to help each other remember how good God has been to them and share that with a world that needs to know God! I didn't know I was writing this book for this time in history, but I was. And that's exactly what these women are discovering. One woman said she didn't even want to read the news, just read Forsaken God? I hope by now you know my heart that I am NOT trying to sell books, I'm trying to start a revival and revival starts with God working in each of us. I hope you'll consider Forsaken God? for your next group study or personal growth. It is NOT a book just for women; it's for EVERY Christian man and woman!

Watch Pam's Season Seasoned Sister's group give a shout out!

Woman To Woman
Mentoring Ministry Testimony 
Hi Janet,
My name is Mary Shinar from Scottsdale Az. 
We just celebrated 10 years and 20 sessions of your Woman to Woman Mentoring Ministry
There is so much to say about the lives this ministry has touched over the years. Your unique way of bringing women together through the orientation coffee and kick off along with the prayer over the profile cards to match them and the covenant dinner to celebrate them...all these orchestrate the success and joy that our women have experienced over these last 10 years!

Our greatest joy is watching the Holy Spirit tug, stir, convict and direct all four events. It has grown our faith as we bask in God's amazing relationship with each woman who is touched by this mentoring ministry!!

There are countless testimonies from the 20 covenant dinners we have hosted that keep us in awe and keep this ministry going!

Women need to know how they are paired with each other. They love to hear that they are prayed over and matched with a woman through those prayers. They love knowing there is ongoing prayer for them from their own personal prayer warrior. It is the most powerful work we do in these women's lives. 

Needless to say, I could go on and on but let me express our gratitude for hearing "Go feed my sheep"! Hundreds of women in Scottsdale Az. have experienced the joys of your obedience to that call!
Abiding in Jesus,
Mary Shinar

               Mentoring Tip            
Writing down prayers and praises helps to journal and capture your mentoring journey.

Today's Facebook memory was five years ago when granddaughter Katelyn graduated from kindergarten. Next week, she graduates from 5th grade and on to middle school. That seems like a fast five years!

When I was young, we had one graduation and that was from high school, but kids today start having graduation ceremonies from preschool! Then from kindergarten, elementary school, middle school, high school, and some from college.  

I always thought that when my grandkids started graduating, I would be really old. And since we had a grandson graduate last year from high school, maybe I am getting old! Ha Ha! But what I've noticed is that all the graduations make it seem like they are growing up so fast; like time is passing quickly. So I'm reminded at every milestone to pray for the next big step in their life and to savor every moment I have with them.

I'm delighted to share with you my friend, Cindi McMenamin's latest book. I even have a few comments in it.

In your book you say 75 percent of women in this country fear public speaking, yet 100 percent of women live on the stage. Explain that.
We have an audience everywhere we go. Every time we have an issue with a cashier at the department store, or we come unglued with someone's treatment of us or our kids, or we are hit with unexpected circumstances people are watching us and reviewing our performance. Even more important, God sees what we do and His review matters the most. So while we say we don't like to get up in front of people, we live our lives on public display and our drama is there for the world to see.

What are the primary factors that contribute to drama among women?
Drama happens when unexpected circumstances hit and we are unprepared to handle them. And drama happens when we come up against family members or people with different personalities who carry with them their own set of emotional baggage, learned behaviors, expectations, values and belief system, and an ability to misunderstand, misinterpret, exaggerate, gossip, disappoint, and act selfishly and inconsiderate. Just being around other people can elicit drama. But how we choose to respond to it makes all the difference - or all the drama - in the world.
What are the two choices we have when drama comes our way?
We can choose to react emotionally and impulsively and escalate the drama; or we can choose to respond in a mature and godly way that diffuses the drama so we experience peace.

What about when unexpected events hit us? How can we not react emotionally?
We can respond maturely, rather than react emotionally when we accept God's script for our lives. Romans 8:28-29 says "God causes all things to work together for good to those who love Him and are called according to His purpose. And those whom He foreknew He predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son."   When I personally acknowledge the fact that "This did not take God by surprise" it helps me realize He has a plan and a purpose for whatever I'm going through which could be classified as drama.
