A study on how to cultivate mentoring relationships among women.
We read through Spiritual Mothering in my Friday morning moms’ Bible Study, and we all really got a lot out of it. The basic idea is that women grow spiritually both by looking up to women who are older than them, either in age or in spiritual maturity, and that women also grow spiritually by becoming mentors themselves. The book offers insights from the Bible and from the author’s own spiritual journey and those of women she has known, starting from Mary’s visit to Elizabeth back when she was pregnant with Jesus. I especially liked the sections on how to develop good listening skills, because I feel like I can’t ever learn too much about how to know when to shut up!
