My Review

Mentoring another is something each of us can do. You don't have to have a license or a special degree. It doesn't have to fit into a prescribed program. Ziebarth gives readers the encouragement and information needed to begin changing lives through mentoring. It does require a commitment and you must be willing to allow your life to be seen as an example, she writes. She also warns us that suffering may be involved as we share in the lives of others.

Ziebarth provides many different ways of doing mentoring and identifies the characteristics of effective mentoring. She includes practical ideas. She quotes from several books and one could study further with any one of them. She also provides sample lesson plans for mentoring meetings and lists many more resources. Many originate with The Navigators ministry.

This is a good book for personal or group use. Ziebarth has included questions throughout for personal thought or group discussion. If you have a desire to change a life, this book will get you started doing so, containing everything you need.

My rating: 4/5 stars.
