NOW, MORE THAN EVER, MOMS NEED MENTORING MOMMAS WHO ARE WILLING TO SHARE THE GIFT OF THEMSELVES
NOW, more than ever, Titus 2 mommas are ready to step up to the plate and pour their lives into moms
YOU CAN BE PART OF THE REVOLUTION
OF WOMEN WHO ARE READY AND WILLING TO
TAKE TITUS 2 TO THE STREETS!
Overwhelmed releases on January 7th, and it is our gift to the body of Christ…a FREE resource to help you begin or expand your mentoring ministry. Like Facing Our Fears ~ 31 Stories from M.O.M., Overwhelmed gives mentors the tools, the confidence and the support they need to boldly step into their Titus 2 shoes and nurture those mentor/mentee relationships.
The M.O.M. Initiative is here for you. To be a “mentoring hub” of sorts. A place where mentors can find resources and support and share their information, so that young moms in search of a mentor can find a mentor in their area, as well as the support and encouragement they need.
WILL YOU JOIN THE REVOLUTION OF WOMEN WHO ARE WILLING AND READY TO PUT THEMSELVES OUT THERE AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE?
SIGN UP TODAY and you will receive Overwhelmed ~ 31 Stories from M.O.M.
In Overwhelmed, each story includes reflective questions specifically designed to serve as conversation prompts and help foster the mentor/mentee relationship as you navigate the life of an overwhelmed mom together.
Here’s a brief look at what a mentoring ministry might look like for you:
- Schedule a time and place to meet weekly for six weeks.
- You and the mentee will read through 5 stories each week and be prepared when you meet together each week.
- As a mentor, you can rest in knowing, this biblically-based resource includes questions at the end of each story that are specifically designed to be a catalyst for conversation. This will give you, as a mentor, the confidence to know you won’t have to worry about that awkward silence that would normally leave you scrambling for something to say.
- The questions are also written to help you, as a mentor, reflect on your own story and share your failures as well as your successes with the kind of sincere transparency that will assure your mentee that she is not alone and that her mentor isn’t Pinterest perfect either.
- Your time together is a tool to nurture a relationship that will hopefully last long past the book.
- If you’re a mother, have you had a mentor? Who? Has it been a formal or informal relationship?
- Who have been your primary mentors in life (parenting or otherwise)? What vital lessons have you learned from your mentor(s)?
- Anything on your heart!
