Michael Hyatt, the Chairman of Thomas Nelson Publishing said, “If there’s one thing I have learned, it’s that young men and women are desperate for mentors who will build into their lives.” A mentor is a person that can drive you to become all that you desire to be in your physical, spiritual and emotional journey through life. Even though mentoring can be a serious commitment of time, effort and money, it can be well worth the reward you gain from the experience.
At 35 years of age, I have had the privilege of being mentored by two godly women, both of whom have dramatically impacted my life. I long to pass on what I have learned from my experience to others and have found these resources to be a tremendous guide to help me accomplish this goal.

“The greatest good you can do for another is not just to share your riches but to reveal to him his own.” – Benjamin Disraeli
