Reviews - What do customers think about Mentoring Mom?
Encourages with doable steps Sep 30, 2006
The next best thing to living next door to Jackie Kendall is reading her books. The Mentoring Mom is written from one mother's heart to yours with an abundant dose of grace.
"In what ways do you want your children to grow up to be like you?" Kendall asked. "Is mom modeling for her daughter the significance of a consistent, daily growing relationship with Jesus through God's word?" Are we more concerned about the condition of our aging bodies than the care of our souls?
Button-popping proud mother of two grown children and president of Power To Grow Ministries, Kendall recommends mothers stamp eleven images on their children including a love for God, a praying woman, a student of God's Word, your soul's emotional health, loving people to Christ, your heart's passion, a noble life purpose, your teachability, your perseverance, reckless abandon to God, and the image of an adapting spouse.
The Mentoring Mom encourages readers with doable steps like spending seven minutes daily with God. "Do you know how many seven-minute increments we've got in a day? Every day you have 205 chances for seven minutes with God," Kendall said.
Journaling has been essential for Kendall. Through journal entries, each chapter in The Mentoring Mom shares generous glimpses of her victories and struggles over the past two decades of her own parenting. Chapters end with questions for reflection.
"I am often amazed that parents can be so thorough in teaching their children about hygiene but neglect the hygiene of the soul," Kendall penned. She writes that a soul is cleansed by confession and forgiveness. Kendall is a good forgiver. The power of her ministry comes from her personal journey. Growing up in an abusive family, Kendall was a teen when she became a Christian. She has done the brave work of facing her issues, allowing God to heal her wounded heart, and learning how to forgive the unforgivable.
Kendall has the best teaching on forgiveness I've encountered. An exuberant and genuine speaker, her tapes are available from her website, Power To Grow. Her video, "How to Avoid a Bozo" is a must see for parents and teens. Based on Kendall's intensive study of the book of Ruth, this video outlines the difference between a Bozo and a Boaz. Teaching your boys to be a Boaz and your girls to avoid a Bozo is a vital part of being a Mentoring Mom. - PeggySue Wells, Christian Book Previews.com
Looking into the Light Jul 31, 2006
Over the years, Hollywood movies have stamped on the layman's mind an image of a typical American family as a rubber band stretched by stressors of self-centeredness and unbridled individualism. This stamp is particularly lasting in case of teen folk. As we read Jackie Kendall's The Mentoring Mom (New Hope Publishers, Alabama, 2006), the Hollywood's stamp is washed away and the American family appears in a new light-that of love, care, and trust. Surely you would need a mentoring mom.
Jackie Kendall addresses caring mothers in her book, sharing the eleven images (what she calls stamps) she imprinted on her children's lives-images that model Christ- to help them grow up in God's image. Kendall tells simple, true nonfiction stories from her own family life and asks the readers `Questions for Reflection' at the end of each chapter. It is her excellent writing style, lively humor, and prodigy of construing thoughts in the most beautiful sentences that makes her book a wonderful gift to moms and everyone else.
The Mentoring Mom carries invaluable lessons: loving the Lord by way of loving fellow human beings, the difference between mere learning the word `God' and knowing God intimately, and above all, the true spirit of a real family. An indelible lesson of the book, of course, is the vitality of `wholesome grief'. In Kendall's words: tears do not bring back the one who has died, but tears do bring us back to the life that must be lived without the ones who have died.
As an author Jackie Kendall's words work wonders. The reason is not hard to figure: you can actually feel the persons, she tells of, in their own voices as if the author has a miraculous force by which she transforms herself into the soul of the one she is talking about. You can identify your life's instances with Kendall family's history of love and benevolence. This is indeed an achievement.
Jackie Kendall's book is a must read because we all need Kendall's wisdom's light to arrive safely at our destiny of peace.
Well Worth Your Time Jul 8, 2006
In this work by author Jackie Kendall we are gently guided to improve the most important job of our lives, being a mom. The author encourages all mothers to open their hearts to be mentored by God who in turn will give to them inward wisdom to help them mentor their young, and I believe it works. Ms. Kendall gives us 11 principals to guide us, and as the author explains, as we use these principals we are 'stamping healthy imprints' on our children as they grow. Her words are, "children learn best by examples." Certainly a truth we all need to remember. Her principals are Scriptural and wise. A few examples of her 11 principals are: The Stamp of Teachability; The Stamp of Passion in our Daily Lives, and my favorite, The Stamp of Perseverance." Carefully she takes her time to explain the meaning of each, their importance in you and your children's lives and how you may implement them to help you and your child. In her explanation of these we find wonderful stories, examples and Scripture. If you hunger to make a positive impression on your children, leave them a lasting legacy they will carry with them all their lives; this work is for you. Well written, informative and enjoyable.
the Mentoring Mom .......... Molly's Reviews Jun 26, 2006
This is a work to keep close at hand during those child rearing years. the Mentoring Mom is a book to be turned to often as parents face the day to day struggle, confusion and struggle that is so much a part of raising a family. The writer leads the reader into understanding that raising kids is a big job, is not an insurmountable job and is a job to be savored.
The reader is offered suggestions for letting others and God do some leading in our own lives, an important quote I especially liked was added "Parents of good kids take too much credit and parents of struggling kids take too much blame" is offered. While I didn't have the quote when my own children were teens, the notion was well entrenched and carried me through those years with a minimum of upset.
the Mentoring Mom will be a welcome addition to parental personal reading list, the therapist shelf, school and public library and for all who hope to make a positive difference in the lives of another. the Mentoring Mom is a book to be read in entirety and then kept close at hand for study during times of particular need or situation.
Moms Who Wish to Be Mentors Jun 5, 2006
Full Disclosure: I did not read this book, my wife did. After all, she's the one who really wants to be a mentoring mom. What follows is gleaned from her thorough reading of the book:
You're a mom and you wish to produce more than just the average good kid-you wish to pass the slippery torch of faith to your next generation. Well, if that's your goal, then Jackie Kendall, author of Lady in Waiting, has produced a wonderful tool to help you get that done.
Mentoring Moms offers 11 concrete areas of life in which Moms can thoroughly train their children to love God. Dad's have a role, too, but Mom's have a unique calling and a special gift in passing down the legacy of faith.
Jackie is both biblical and practical. Her words don't induce pangs of guilt and shame, but rather encourage and uplift with practical tidbits of wisdom. She gently sprinkles the Scriptures over everday life situations.
No matter what stage of life your child is in, Mentoring Moms can help you grow in your most important responsiblity: mothering. I would buy this book for yourself and for the important moms in your life.
