I received an advance review copy for free and am leaving this review voluntarily. Thank you Stephanie Ziebarth and Partners In Crime Tours. I'm excited to be a part of this tour.
Mentoring and teaching others how to be mentors is one of my favorite professional activities. Years ago, I had the privilege to create and facilitate a mentoring program for students when I worked at Iowa State University. Now, many of my students are 10 years or more into their professional lives and its rewarding to watch them as they grew from freshmen to college graduates to entering their profession. Since that time, I have mentored students one on one and love the connections we’ve built while also being someone they can come to for advice as they grow and evolve.
I enjoyed this book because Stephanie provides several ways of mentoring while identifying characteristics that people look for in their mentors. This book is practical and straightforward and leans heavily on Christian principals and draws connections from the bible. I like that this book can be used as an individual or with a group. The prompts challenge the reader to take an honest look at themselves to become a better person and mentor.
I recommend this book to anyone who is looking to learn mentoring principles grounded in a Christian perspective.

She has been spiritually investing in teens and adults ever since.
