Have you ever felt like you’re staggering helplessly as you try to navigate through all the turns and curves that life has thrown your way? Or maybe, you’ve found yourself alone and secluded in dim seasons when you’re seeking growth and wisdom to press forward? How can you learn to be the woman that God has called you to be and share your knowledge to help other women uncover the same realization?
Maybe you’re accustomed to relying on your strength and independence to power through daily responsibilities, or perhaps you’ve experienced the beauty of other Godly women pouring understanding and challenging questions into you. No matter what your reality has been, God hasn’t called you to journey through life alone. You have been redeemed from your deepest sins, mistakes, and failures, but that redemption isn’t just for you. Through the grace extended to you, you can tap into lessons gleaned through your experiences and walk alongside another woman to encourage her. The example and characteristics of the Titus 2 woman – reverent, a teacher of good things, self-controlled, kind – are modeled in Scripture to encourage and spur you to form and invest in meaningful mentor connections.
Lisa Bevere talks candidly about the difference that mentorship relationships have made in her life and the generational gaps that occur and widen when mentorship doesn’t exist within the church community. My discussion with Lisa details how to deepen your walk and understanding in various life seasons through guidance. She provides practical steps to help you identify Godly wisdom within your circle and how to embody learned attributes to saturate other women who may be journeying through similar circumstances.
Not sure how to establish the right mentor connection, at the right time, in your life? Look for the women who are there—women flourishing in the areas of life that you desire to grow within. Find the women devoted to living well and are passionately pursuing God and all that He has for them. Whether it’s singleness, marriage, raising children, serving the community, or excelling in a professional career, we’re called to walk alongside one another. This talk might be just what you need to hear!
