I am beginning a new endeavor- one that has long been on my heart.
I am going to blog slowly and steadily through “mentoring” books here in this space. I hope that you will join me on this journey. I would be beyond delighted if this could even be a small community of encouragement and hope and wisdom and comraderie.
I can’t seem to figure out how to make an “in real life” group work in my season, in my “new” state- and I, myself, am in need. I need accountability. I need discipleship. I need to apply myself to the wisdom from Christian Women who have truth, insight…words of life, ministry from God- for women like me!
For now, I am going to be here twice monthly on Mondays. I will be posting
( Lord willing!)
“Mentoring Mondays” on the opposite Mondays from the ones that I am found at 66books. There will be two posts. One will highlight some textual quotes. The second will be a more personal response post.
There are many books on my list. There are a few prized, precious women/authors from whom I long to learn.
It is my prayer and my hope that I will truly apply wisdom, insight, and truth to my heart and life so that I can continue to change and grow.
So- to start: back to my beginnings…. join me on a Mission.
Join me here in The Mission of Motherhood by Sally Clarkson. You can find it here (not an affiliate link)-
From the Introduction of Mission to Motherhood:
As I look to the needs of children today, I am convinced they need the same things from their mothers that I needed— and — received— from mine. They need not only the gentle touch of a mother’s hands, but her foucs and her attention on a daily basis. They need a champion and a cheerleader, someone who has the time and energy to give encouragement along life’s way and comfort in dark times. They need a directive voice to show them how to live. From page 2 Mission to Motherhood
In this section, Sally Clarkson also says:
Many moments of stress and struggle could have been handled so much more easily if I had had a wiser, older woman to shed light on my stages of life. It was through writers like Edith Schaeffer that I was encouraged and helped along my way. My hope is that in some way, I might be able to provide that same encouragement and inspiration. From page 3 Mission of Motherhood
I am taking these words to heart and taking her words to my heart! For a long time, I have known that my mentors are found within the pages of trusted, beloved, solid books. I am putting action behind that knowledge.
Onward and Upward and Held,
