Consider: Spiritual Mothering

The idea of mentoring can be scary and intimidating, but those of us who have experienced it walk away knowing the great benefit! Below is an encouragement from Spiritual Mothering by Susan Hunt:

The eighteenth century poet and historian, Matthew Arnold, said: “If ever the world sees a time when women shall come together purely and simply for the benefit and good of mankind, it will be a power such as the world has never seen.” I agree. But the problem is that women will never come together purely and simply for the benefit and good of others because of the self-centeredness of our sin nature. The what’s-in-it-for-me mentality forbids such selflessness. However, Christian women, because of the power of grace, can overcome their self-centeredness. Christian women can manifest the other-centered virtues that characterize spiritual mothering. In fact, I would restate Matthew Arnold in this way: If ever the world sees a time when Christian women shall come together purely and simply to encourage and equip other women to live for God’s glory, it will be a power such as the world has never seen.
