“I read this book about twenty years ago as a new Christian. Longing for a spiritual mother, I found Susan Hunt discipling me from these pages and stirring my heart to pour out to others what she had poured into me. I followed her example set forth in this book as I began to understand the importance of discipleship in the Christian life. Grounded in Scripture, wed to the local church, specific to women, personal, wise, hopeful, and engaging—this book will be both a ready reference for your discipleship of women and an encouragement to both young and old as you strive to live for God’s glory.”
—Kristie Anyabwile, wife of Thabiti Anyabwile, Pastor, Anacostia River Church, Washington, DC; mom of three; discipler of women
“I do not know of anyone better qualified to write a book on spiritual mothering than Susan Hunt. This is a subject she has been passionate about and has modeled for many years. Susan has been an older woman in my life, and her example has encouraged me to embrace the calling of pouring my life into women of the next generation. No message could be more relevant, more needed, more rewarding, or more Christ-honoring for Christian women of all ages.”
—Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth, author; Host, Revive Our Hearts
“In my thirty years of ministry, one of the most heartbreaking and eye-opening revelations I’ve had is that so many women have never experienced intentional discipleship through their local churches. I was poured into very consistently for four years when I was a university student through a campus organization, which laid the foundation for my spiritual life and ministry. How I would have loved for older women in the church to disciple me with that same intentionality and passion! Spiritual Mothering enters into the void with hope, practical teaching, and rich biblical encouragement for women of all ages to be nurtured in life-on-life relationships for the sake of the gospel. I am excited for Susan Hunt’s updated resource, which is filled with the timeless truth of God’s Word.”
—Ellen Mary Dykas, women’s ministry coordinator, Harvest USA; author, Sexual Sanity for Women: Healing from Sexual and Relational Brokenness
“Susan Hunt is committed to declare the glorious deeds of the Lord to the next generation so they will set their hope in God (Ps. 78:1–7). This commitment shines through the pages of Spiritual Mothering as Susan helps another generation fulfill this gospel mandate. This book is a gift to the church, filled with tender wisdom that flows from a life in fellowship with God and others. Spiritual Mothering will encourage and challenge you to grow in your relationship with the Lord so that you give yourself to the next generation.”
—Stephen T. Estock, Coordinator, PCA Discipleship Ministries
“I praise God for the wisdom of Susan Hunt. Through this book, she spiritually mothered me and many of my seminary friends from afar. In these days when the world tells women to follow their hearts, here we have a clarion call to follow Jesus. I’m excited to see this book get into the hands of more young women who need to be encouraged in their calling to make disciples of the nations.”
—Gloria Furman, author, The Pastor's Wife; Missional Motherhood; and Alive in Him
“Twenty-five years later, these truths are more than mere words to me, for I have seen their shape worked out in my own life and the lives of countless women. One of my greatest joys has been witnessing the cultivation of a culture that encourages gospel friendships between older and younger woman to flourish. These truths have yielded not just healthy women, but more importantly, healthy churches.”
—Karen Hodge, Coordinator for Women’s Ministry, Presbyterian Church in America; coauthor, Transformed: Life-Taker to Life-Giver
“I first read Spiritual Mothering almost twenty years ago. After years of ministry, I am more convinced that this book should be read by every woman seeking to invest in other women. Susan Hunt wisely unpacks Titus 2 with theological precision, practical application, and faithful encouragement. I recommend this book in the hope that Susan’s words will spur us on to share Jesus—woman to woman, generation to generation, so that the entire church will be built up and strengthened, all to the glory of God.”
—Melissa Kruger, Women's Ministry Coordinator; Editor, The Gospel Coalition; author, The Envy of Eve and Walking with God in the Season of Motherhood
“You can tell by her smile and her countenance that Susan Hunt is the kind of older woman any wise younger woman would want to have as a mentor. This book is a classic.”
—Bob Lepine, Co-Host, FamilyLife Today

I also noticed several times when the authors opinions did not line up with my biblical world view, example page 132 " A wifes responsibility to make her husband happy. it is Gods responsibility to make him holy..." I also felt there was a tone of perfectionism and lack of grace throughout the book.
Overall the book was an ok read and had some good thoughts especially in chapter 11 "comforting the comfortless". I do think that a personal study of titus 2 may prove more fruitful and do think that there are other books on mentoring that would be more practical and helpful than this book.
