“I just want real.”
When I met with my mentee for the first time and asked what her expectations were for our relationship, she emphatically responded, “I just want real.” Her words gripped my heart. It was as though she was speaking on behalf of her generation and their craving for authentic, vulnerable, and transparent relationships. They are lonely and longing for someone who’s a little further down the path to slow up and walk with them, sharing hope, truth, and wisdom. They desire a mentor who allows them to be real and helps them experience the power of authentic connection.
In this book, we will talk openly about:
- the real concerns and fears of feeling unqualified and unworthy to be in a mentoring relationship
- the simple yet powerful four pillars of mentoring—love, listen, encourage, pray
- inspiring stories from mentees and mentors that provide hope and encouragement
- taking action in pursuing a mentoring relationship or participating in a mentoring movement right where you are
Come join me on this mentoring adventure that might not only change your life, but also transform families, communities, churches, and the world. We were made for this!
