Influence: Living and Sharing a Life of Wisdom, an 8-week inductive study on mentoring, looks to God’s Word for truth about growing mentoring relationships rather than building mentoring programs.

Using the flexible study format of the Sweeter than Chocolate!® series, authors Pam Gillaspie and Jan Silvious guide students through a study of mentoring relationships in the Bible while sharing snapshots from their own mentoring relationships along the way.

Looking at both sides of the mentoring relationship, Influence works well as either a group or individual study. The eight lessons cover a variety a mentoring relationships and consider not only mentoring benefits but the importance safeguarding against potential problems as well. Topics include:.

•  Wise Friends Lead to Wise Ways
•  Mentoring in the Moment:  Learning the Art of Paying Attention
•  Mentoring for the Long Haul: Leverage through Access and Observation
•  Mentoring in the Church: A New Testament How-To Guide
•  Mentoring Gone Wrong: Learning from Failed Relationships
•  The Mentoring of the Spirit and the Word
•  Empowering Your Legacy: Passing on to Others what God has Taught You

No matter where you are, there’s always another step to take. There’s always more to learn . . . there are always others who can influence you and those you can influence. How far your pebble of influence will ripple in the lives of others, only God knows.

This is a great study on mentoring! Not a program, not a system, not a set of rules, etc. It is a walk through the Bible examining major mentoring relationships, successful ones and not so successful. The way it is written is flexible; you can delve deep into scripture if you have the time, but if not, you will still glean important truths. The group of women that did the study with me thoroughly enjoyed it and found that the thought of mentoring someone was no longer a scarey thing, and it was a Biblical thing. Not only that, but they also were excited about paying attention and praying for God to bring a mentor into their life for them. Highly recommend it!
