There is no one size fits all mentoring method that will work for everyone, but we do all need to decide to take a step forward to begin the process. After step one, take heart, there are options.
In person, over the phone, and tech-assisted mentoring sessions are available. No matter where you are in life, we’ll find a way to come together.
First, make the call!
The first step in any new direction is always the most difficult. In our initial call we’ll explore the possibility of working together.
The purpose of this call is to engage in a conversation that will help us decide if we’re a good fit for one another other.
Ever meet someone you clicked with right away, or someone where the opposite was true? By the end of this conversation, we’ll both have a pretty good idea on if moving forward makes sense.
Working together means getting to know one another and building a relationship. It involves the exchange of a lot of deeply personal information, emotions, and trust. This exchange is why our first call is so important. If we don’t ‘click,’ building such an open relationship may be difficult.
At first, getting personal may be an awkward gap to bridge, but in the long term it will be well worth it. We’ll both learn from each other and my goal is to help you apply God’s word to your current life circumstances. The aim of our relationship is for you to learn from my experiences, and for me to comfort and encourage you, especially so when there may not be anyone else in your life to fill that role at the moment.
God’s Will in the Future
Once you’re on the downhill side of your life-change slope, it’s critical to keep moving forward. As a mentor it’s important to me that you do well in whatever endeavor you set out to achieve in the beginning of our relationship and that you continue to grow on your own, and in your relationship with God. Together we’ll come up with a way to make sure you stay accountable to yourself and get the long-term support you need to stay on God’s path for your life.
