Episode 18: Janet Thompson, Why Women Need Mentors

Do you have a mentor in your life? I’m not talking about career mentors, I’m talking about spiritual mentors. Yes, women who come alongside you right in the middle of whatever season you are in and help you walk through things. They have the often lived through very similar things and have had seasons of life change them and give them wisdom. But most importantly – they found a way to lean on the Lord and because of that, they can help point you to Him.

Listen to this weeks podcast as I interview my friend Janet Thompson who has helped train hundreds of women on how to be and find mentors in the church. She built a program at Saddleback Church in California years ago that is still used today. But that’s not all. She’s written multiple other books on various seasons of life including infertility, cancer and even what to do when your husband retires or stays home and is in your space. She shares what she’s lived through and even what others have been through in her books. I think you’ll enjoy it. I pray it blesses you and makes you more intentional about finding a mentor or finding someone you can mentor in your life or church.

    Thank you, Meredith, for the opportunity to share my passion for mentoring with your listeners. I enjoyed our time together and pray our discussion will be a blessing and encouragement to incorporate Titus 2:3-5 into their churches and their personal lives.
