I had a conversation with a friend of mine this weekend about the (almost) lost art of mentoring. We were discussing how the majority of young moms we know are stressed to the limits trying to keep life calm in the midst of their schedules and are often frustrated by the lack of knowledge or skills needed to simplify, multi-task and health-ify their lives and that of their families.
We asked each other when did we get so busy that we choose quick over healthy, or that we don't even have the time to stop and figure out if something is healthy? What has happened to disconnect the generations to such a degree that no longer do daughters and granddaughters learn life and home skills from mom and grandma, but from trial and error? Mentoring is becoming a lost art. And we had to ask ourselves what are we doing about it?
My friend's heart is to mentor younger young women in the kitchen arts. She wants to teach them how to feed their family healthier meals for less money, and I can't wait to see how God uses that!
My heart, at the moment, is with several of you who have asked for blog mentoring. You're just getting started, or just getting serious and have reached out to me for help in finding direction and honing some skills. And I can't wait to see the final results of what God is going to do in you too!
In order to effeciently mentor across the miles, I'm creating a Blogging Class for beginners or those seeking direction in their blogging career. We'll be a small group so that there is plenty of time for conversation, discussion & encouragement through a private Facebook group. I'll review your blog and give you tips and suggestions, and we'll have several video lessons and assignments along the way.
The whole purpose of the Blogging Class is to make you a better, and more praiseworthy, more successful blogger than you are now. I'll be teaching you what I know and helping you find answers to the things I don't.
If you'd like to join me and the others in this mentoring Blogging Class you can find more details and sign up for it here. But hurry, today is the last day to register and space is limited. After today, you'll have to wait a few months before we offer it again.
So go sign up here! I can't wait for you to join us!
