Realize the value and blessings of participating in mentoring relationships during all stages, ages, and seasons of life.
Women often don't think they know enough to be a mentor, or fear rejection if they ask someone to mentor them. Others don't think they need mentoring. However, throughout the Bible, God calls spiritually younger and older women to learn from and teach one another. Mentoring for All Seasons helps answer questions like these:
- How do I find a mentor?
- Why does God want us to mentor one another?
- What are the blessings of mentoring?
Through true stories from mentors and mentees in life seasons from tween to twilight--along with the author's personal experiences, helpful tips, Scriptures to study together, and biblical mentoring relationship examples--Mentoring for All Seasons encourages women to be intentional about sharing their life experiences and God's faithfulness with other women.

Patti J. Smith5 Stars Out Of 5SHARING HOPE, LOVE AND FAITH THROUGH MENTORINGSeptember 28, 2017Patti J. SmithQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0Janet Thompson did an incredible job putting together a collection of mentoring stories that not only shows the importance of being a mentor but the successes of those being mentored. I was privileged to be included in "Mentoring for All Seasons" as both mentor and mentee. Having a mentor to guide us through life's ups and downs releases us from isolation and gives us hope and having someone to mentor allows us to use our own successes and failures as an example....and a reminder of how blessed we truly are. This book is a must-read for young and old and inspires everyone to reach out and help one another.

Lori Wildenberg5 Stars Out Of 5Powerful and PurposefulSeptember 20, 2017Lori WildenbergQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0Janet Thompson powerfully and purposefully shows women of today how to put the biblical principle of mentoring into a real life practice. Mentor and mentee practical tips and personal stories are provided to help the reader catch the vision and live it out. As Janet points out the generation gap is not God's plan. Mentoring closes the divide and unites believers. Spiritual growth happens when we share life and focus on God's faithfulness.
Shirley5 Stars Out Of 5Women Need WomenSeptember 13, 2017ShirleyQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Whether you're interested in sharing what you've learned in life or need encouragement to get through life--this book is for you. There is no more blessed experience than mentoring. I and my two mentees, Kim and Janine, were privileged to have our story included in the Prologue of this book. We began meeting almost 20 years ago and continue to meet weekly to discuss Christian books. Our mentoring has turned into ministry, and we speak at about 20 events a year as Friends of the Heart, which is what we are and what you'll become through a mentoring experience.
Author Janet Thompson covers every phase of the mentoring experience in this book from the newlywed season to the aging and dying season. The Appendix alone is invaluable with topics such as Mentor-Seeking Checklist and Some Mentor Do's and Don'ts along with resources for specific seasons and life experiences.
Thompson stresses that our first mentoring relationship is with our children: "If we don't teach our children to follow Christ, the world will teach them not to." In a day of lagging church attendance, she suggests that if young adult women were more faithfully mentored in the church, they might be more inclined to stay: "These young adults need a caring, praying mentor to help them stay faithful to their Christian beliefs and lifestyles."
After opening with Thompson's personal story of how she was led to become a mentor, Mentoring for All Seasons is broken into two parts: Section One: Christian Mentoring 101 with information about why mentors are needed to bridge generation gaps; Section Two: Life Seasons of Mentors and Mentees (M&M's). Stories from both mentors and mentees break up chapters. Thompson also includes scripture for stage-related challenges. End-of-chapter questions give more food for thought.
This would be a great gift book for anyone involved with women's ministries. Or why not give it to someone with whom you might want to start a mentoring relationship? I was amazed by the sheer quantity of information Thompson shared. I doubt you'll find any other book on mentoring that offers this depth and detail. It's a five-star read!
