"I truly enjoyed reading this book, I have been looking for a comprehensive, insightful book on mentoring and a better understanding of the hows and whats of this critical system for relationship and personal development. This book gave me the information and insight that I needed. I have had the privilege of having great women in my life and I wondered whether the learning and sharing experience we shared was truly mentoring. This book helped me with answering a lot of my questions. I now understand my role as a mentor to other women and the powerful impact of a true face to face mentoring relationship. I am truly blessed and honored to have found this book as it helped me to appreciate the current mentors I have and the current women that I am impacting in my life. Also it has helped me to understand why the face to face connection is needed and how to start, progress, handle conflicts and even bring to end a mentoring relationship where necessary. A good and easy read with a lot of details and examples of the face to face mentoring relationship. Good stuff!"

"This book was not only about mentoring and being mentored, but it also shared so much practical wisdom about living life connected first and foremost to Jesus Christ. I am now motivated to find a mentor and pray how God can use me to mentor someone else. As a woman in my 40's I still have so much to learn but also so much to share. I highly recommend Face to Face."

Brianna4 Stars Out Of 5Book Review: Face to FaceJuly 30, 2017BriannaQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 3Face to Face by Jayme Hull and Laura Captari is promoted as an influential read regarding the value of mentorships and how pursue a mentoring relationship. In Face to Face, Hull offers readers several questions to ask when seeking a mentor. She also encourages readers to pursue the relationship despite fear of rejection or inferiority or a lack of purpose.
Several sections address personal growth, rather than mentoring. This is alluded to in the introduction on the books back cover where readers see that Face to Face is a compilation of stories about mentoring, plus sprinklings of wisdom on balance, purpose, and change But, the sections on personal growth seemed to create two different topics within one book, whereas I prefer to read an entire book about mentoring.
Overall, I recommend Face to Face to readers who are looking for guidance before entering a mentoring relationship. Hull is correct when she explains that many churches do not have exemplary mentoring programs, or any mentoring programs at all. Therefore, it is an important topic to cover. Face to Face is also built upon Hulls own experiences, and she includes pieces of mentoring conversations throughout the book.

VictoriaCanadaAge: 25-34Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Opens a much needed discussionApril 19, 2016VictoriaCanadaAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4Mentoring is weird.
We enter into relationship, walking through life, sharing experiences and growth. It sounds great, more and more people are recognizing the importance of this unique relationship and yet ask people how to find a mentor or how to mentor someone else and most people just stare blankly.
In Face to Face Jayme Hull and Laura Captari explore the ins and outs of mentoring in a laid back and accessible format. In fact, at times I almost felt the book was to laid back as I sought out clear cut rules and guidelines, only to realize that by giving the chapter and its stories space, the concept did jump out in more organic and relational ways (sort of how I picture mentoring).
Face to Face is not an instruction manual, There is no 1, 2, 3 to easy mentoring because it involves people and life is messy. However, this book does walk readers through the basics including: the purpose of mentoring, how to find a mentor (it involves some risk as a heads up, all the way to working through conflict in the mentoring relationship and ending well. The chapters are cleanly divided into manageable portions each ending with their own collection of reflective questions geared towards helping the reader in their own mentoring journey.
Face to Face is definitely written towards a female audience and draws heavily upon Jayme's own experience as a mentor and mentee. I know I picked out certain passages to comment on with my husband but the book is not gender neutral.
The need for mentoring is one I've seen replayed over and over again and Face to Face does an excellent job opening up intentional space to address this issue.
4 out of 5 stars
