Not sure where else this should go, so I figured this subforum was a good starting place
A friend of mine (a young married mom) said that she had prayed about asking a woman in our church to mentor her, a la Titus 2. And she recommended that I pray about getting a mentor, to see if God would lead me in that way or bring any wise women in our church to mind. I wouldn't need to be mentored about husband/kids, since I'm 31 and single, but I am always open to wisdom and advice from wise, godly people.
But I'm wondering -- what does a mentor do? What would we talk about? How is it different from just getting coffee once a month to just chat? And I guess the mentoring would be about my entire life -- as opposed to a college mentor who would counsel you on classes, career, etc. Maybe she'd be a good person to be accountable to for my spiritual life. I don't really need career guidance. But advice about life in general would be great.
Does anybody have any thoughts on mentoring and what it looks like in someone's life? Thank you!!
