Woman to Woman May 24, 2008
We used this as a leaders study to understand what mentoring is and is not. This study gives answers to questions and helps to eleviate potential problems before they come up. I would highly recommend it to anyone who was considering mentoring or doesn't think they are qualified to mentor.

With all the trendy talk about mentoring these days, Edna Ellison paints a practical yet poignant picture of what mentoring truly is. Biblically based and reader friendly, I highly recommend this book to any woman considering a mentoring relationship.

AUTHOR'S REVIEW--EDNA MARTIN ELLISON, Ph. D. Aug 14, 1999
TEN YEARS AGO AS I TRAVELED SPEAKING AT WOMEN'S RETREATS AND CONFERENCES, I REALIZED MOST WOMEN DESPERATELY NEED MENTORING ADVICE. IN TRANSIENT AMERICA, WE LIVE APART FROM EXTENDED FAMILY MEMBERS, OUR IMMEDIATE FAMILIES ARE DWINDLING, AND NEIGHBORHOODS DON'T PROVIDE THE CLOSENESS THEY ONCE DID. IN THE SHIFTING SAND OF TODAY'S SOCIETY, WOMEN NEED SOMEONE TO GUIDE, COUNSEL, AND BEFRIEND THEM. WHEN I MET TRICIA SCRIBNER, WHO ASKED ME TO MENTOR HER IN HER WRITING, SHE DESIGNED A QUESTIONNAIRE AND WE DISTRIBUTED IT IN AMERICA, GERMANY AND ENGLAND. SOME OF THE SURPRISES WE FOUND ARE IN THIS BOOK. IT CONTAINS POEMS, FILL-IN-THE-BLANKS FOR BIBLE STUDY, A LEADERS GUIDE FOR GROUPS, A COMMISSIONING SERVICE FOR CHURCHES, AND ACTIVITY/GAMES TO GET YOU INVOLVED AS YOU READ. TRICIA, WHO IS ABOUT 20 YEARS YOUNGER THAN I, HAS BECOME A JOY IN MY LIFE AS I (A WIDOW) HAVE SHARED WITH HER WHAT I HAVE LEARNED ABOUT BEING A CHRISTIAN WIFE AND MOTHER. WE LOVE TO LEAD CONFERENCES AND INTERACT WITH WOMEN ALL OVER THE WORLD! WON'T YOU JOIN US AS YOU READ THROUGH THE PAGES AND INTERACT WITH OUR PRINCIPLES OF MENTORING IN WOMAN TO WOMAN: PREPARING YOURSELF TO MENTOR ?
