Becoming a Woman of Influence Jun 22, 2007
This is a great Bible study book for Women. Our group is age 17-87 and each one of us enjoyed the book.
unsure Dec 12, 2006
The author used avidly personal examples, examples from others, quotes, and related scripture which illustrated themes in the principles Jesus taught to his disciples. This also aided in allowing the readers to relate the examples in the book towards their own personal life. The book also outlined that a questionnaire was sent out to 100 women and the book was based on the experiences those women had with mentoring.
I did not feel that this book was adequately categorized as a book that's primary focus on mentoring. I would not recommend this book to anyone who is a mentor or contemplating whether or not to be a mentor. While this book did do a good job outlining how one can intertwine religion into mentoring it's it did not provide enough material for me to be able to learn from it's text and apply what I learned to a real life situation.
If you're a young girl, this book is probably not for you Jan 6, 2005
This book is a great MENTORING book, I will say that. BUT it is not for younger girls (Im 22 and read this about a year ago) and it is DEFINATLY not what a young girl would get if she based her purchase on just the book's title (its NOT about becoming an influence to the people around you as I had thought - instead, its a "how to mentor young church ladies" book). I wanted a book that would help me learn how to generally influence others my age in the christian walk - instead I got a book on how to directly mentor people decades younger than me one-on-one.
It is definately catered towards OLDER church going ladies (in their 40s, 50s, 60s) and even the wording sometimes made me feel isolated from the author's intended audience. As a young christian girl, I even had a hard time relating to her teachings as they were mostly based on her own life experiences and were instructions on how to mentor people.
Again, may i stress - direct "mentoring" and general "influence" are NOT the same concepts!!!
Excellent, uplifting and encouraging book. Oct 25, 2002
This is the first Carol Kent book that I have read, but it will not be the last. I loved it! It reminded me of how we can be an encourager to others and often we may not even realize it. Just by letting the love of Jesus shine through us to others. How we can help lead others to Christ just by be being an example of a good christian friend. This book is excellent, great for a women's book club read.
Impacting Young Women's Lives For Christ Nov 14, 2000
When I began reading this book, I was able to relate to what the writer was saying because I've been impacted by two Godly women in my life. Mrs. Kent explains clearly how we as women need to impact other women. This book can be used for any women who desires to impact lives. This book would motivate you to do so, due to what Christ has done in your life, we are to pour our experiences in the lives of other women. So every women who wants to impact lives, you should get this book. Zinnada L. Hodge Bladensburg, MD
