From the Inside Flap
Women often don't think they know enough to be a mentor, or fear rejection if they ask someone to mentor them. Others don't think they need mentoring. However, throughout the Bible, God calls spiritually younger and older women to learn from and teach one another. "Mentoring for All Seasons" helps answer questions like these: What is mentoring? How do I find a mentor? Why does God want us to mentor one another? What are the blessings of mentoring? Through true stories from mentors and mentees in life seasons from tween through deathalong with the author's personal experiences, helpful tips, Scriptures to study together, and biblical mentoring relationship examples "Mentoring for All Seasons" encourages women to be intentional about sharing their life experiences and God's faithfulness with other women.

Section Two Describes life seasons and the type of mentoring women need in each season. For each season, Thompson gives tips for both mentors and mentees, Scriptures to discuss, personal stories from mentors and mentees, a short Bible story, and discussion questions. I particularly liked Thompson’s guidelines for establishing boundaries so no one feels like they’re being asked for more time than they’ve agreed to give, and for making sure expectations are clearly discussed up front.
The epilogue finishes with a variety of short topics such as tips on choosing a mentor, setting realistic expectations, Do’s and Don’ts, mentor vulnerability, advice for when mentoring is hard, and resources.
I highly recommend this book for Christian women who want to both grow spiritually and help others grow.
"No one expects you to have memorized the Bible or be a Bible scholar to qualify as a mentor; you just need to have lived life, observed God at work in the seasons of your life, and seek the guidance of the Holy Spirit." (Janet Thompson, p. 60) "Mentoring encompasses guidance, accountability, spiritual growth and friendship: one woman sharing her life experiences and her faith in God with another woman who could use help with her current life season." (Janet Thompson, p. 88)
