What Mentoring Moments Is Intentionally Choosing in 2018

Do you have a special ‘word’ for 2018?

You know, a word / discipline to intentionally focus on in the new year? This time of year I see posts announcing the writer’s word-of-the-year painted beautifully on a pillow.

For years, Mentoring Moments has done something similar. We pray and ask the Lord for direction by giving us a theme to mentor on through our writing. Some of our themes over the years have been:

Grace-Full Living
In His Presence
Jesus Is…
Living @ Full Strength in Christ
Rooted in Christ: Yielding Fruits of the Spirit
Walking in Wisdom

For 2018, the Lord has directed our hearts to mentor in writing on Choices.
Yes, Choices with a capital ‘C’.

Proverbs 2:11 says,
Wise choices will watch over you. Understanding will keep you safe.
Proverbs 19:2 says,
It is dangerous to have zeal without knowledge, and the one who hastily makes poor choices.
 
And, Ecclesiastes 2:13-14 says,
“I thought, ‘Wisdom is better than foolishness, just as light is better than darkness. For the wise can see where they are going, but fools walk in the dark.’ Yet, I saw that the wise and the foolish share the same fate.”

Can I be real here? As women, our choices must reflect Christ. We have younger sisters in Christ looking to us, watching us, following our lead. This year, would you make the choice to join with Mentoring Moments and disciple / mentor a sister in Christ on the importance of wise choices?

The staff at MMCW will write and share resources to come alongside you. We have generations of women who desperately need the mentoring of godly Christian women focused on making intentional choices that honor and glorify our Lord.

You don’t have a mentor?

We’re going to be writing about being proactive in finding a mentor and how to use valuable resources when one is not close. Mentoring Moments already has several ways we mentor available for you and to assist you in discipling others:

Mentoring Moments Blog
Our blog has undergone a transformation to make finding mentoring resources easier. You’ll find such categories as:

Finding a Mentor
Mentoring Others
Mentoring Series
Book & Resource Reviews

Not to mention, familiar categories such as Life which includes: Singleness, Marriage, Motherhood, Empty Nesters, and Living on Mission. The At Home category includes our homemaking advice and recipes. Encouragment is a new section that hosts all our words to, yes, encourage.  The Holidays and Occasions area is filled with ideas, devotionals, recipes, and crafts.

Anchoring Deep in God’s Word
Read along in your Bible with a private close-knit Face Book group led by Page Hughes and Cindy Sampson. Page and Cindy provide daily commentary and encourage community discussion in a non-threatening environment.

Faithful Friends Book Club
Book selections posted quarterly for both non-fiction and fiction books. This year our non-fiction books will focus on holiness, sanctification, and wise choices.

Mentoring Moments on Facebook
Susheila Bates, Daphne Tarango, and Ginny Holcombe post daily Scripture set to beautiful photos, quotes, insightful articles, music, and teaching videos.

Mentoring Moments on Instagram @mentoringmoments
We’re getting used to this new platform. Here you’ll find daily life photos, Scriptures, and encouragement.

That’s a lot of resources already available!

What Mentoring Moments is intentionally choosing in 2018 is Christ in all our choices.

Will you join us? May our choices be a witness to others of our Savior’s love, grace, and mercy in 2018.
