Living Life Together

Do you have a Paul or a Timothy in your life? Ok, what that means is this.....Do you have someone who is mentoring you and someone that you mentor?? We all need to HAVE and/or BE Spiritual Mothers and/or Fathers in our lives! Even our kids can have and/or do this! What an amazing thing for them to experience!!

Because "most" of us don't have trouble asking or finding a Spiritual mother or father, I am going to focus on BEING a Spiritual Mother or Father

This week Pastor Craig shared that when it comes to us being the "Mentor" and sowing into the life of someone else, most of the time, we don't "feel" worthy of this! But guess what! WE ARE! We might think...But I have made sooo many mistakes! or I don't know as much of the Bible as I should! etc. etc. etc.

Here's the thing: Our failures, Our struggles, Our trials & tribulations are EXACTLY what we can minister out of and I know in my situations that is EXACTLY what the Lord has brought into my life as well as my husbands. The Lord has even brought couples into our lives because that is our heart! To work with couples who might be struggling in their marriages, WHY?? Because that is what we have walked through and HE has completely restored us and done some amazing work in each of us and our marriage! Just a couple of weeks ago I met a woman and we ended up having lunch together. We did not know each other @ all and within that one hour she shared her life and that led into her marriage and it happened to be just the very thing I had walked through! She told me "I cannot believe I am telling you these things, I don't even know you!" I just smiled knowing the Lord had put her in my path and that HE will use me if I am willing to listen and share what HE did in my life! We are HIS vessels and HE will use us if we will let HIM! Just tell your story. Live your life with others. The Lord will do the rest :)

I don't know about you but I don't want to be a Joshua! (in that, I mean) HE did not teach the younger Generation of the things of God or the things God had done or of HIS Power! Judges 2:10 I don't want my children or others to NOT know what God has done in my life because it is only through HIM that I have the marriage, the children, the heart, everything that I have is because of Christ and through HIS mighty power I have been changed and continue changing from glory to glory!



Amen, much wisdom spoken here sis.


Very good. I have a mentor, and I've recently been called to help some others, but you're right, it's much easier to seek out help, than to be the mentor. I pray that we'll give & receive. Thanks for the post.

Once again, you have encouraged me and given me a good word for the day. At times I struggle wanting to be such a mentor because it's so much responsibility. But so many wonderful things happen as a result of sowing into the lives of others...hurts too...but those good things far outweigh the bad.
Thanks for sharing your heart, my friend. And for mentoring all of us with your excellent posts. Love you!!!


Great word on Saturday!! He is such a great teacher. So glad you guys are with us, who would have ever thought!! I just love what the Lord has done in our lives and hearts.

So glad we got to do breakfast with Steph, she is a joy, and meeting Fern on top of that, great morning!! Been praying for you too!!

Love you my bestest friend!!


He first comforted us so we can comfort others...That's what's echoing in the back of my mind as I was reading your post. May we be sensitive to those people in need around us so we can point them to His love.

God bless and protect you sister! Love to you.

Hi! Loren, Love this; it is full of wisdom! Is it not the most wonderful thing when God opens the door and we just walk thru it! In fact early yesterday morning I was trying to call to get my tires ordered, I called for over an hr. finally this man answered and I said I have been calling for a while, it turns out I was not dialing the right #, but I believe that God worked it that way because me and the man had about a 30 min. conversation talking about God!! woW! and He used a blow-out on my car to create this talk! Praise God! I got to tell him what God has done for me!{invite to church}, ask him if he had a personal relatioship with God;etc. See you just never know! Thank You Jesus for the boldness! Have a great day my Friend:) In Jesus!


Loren, I haven't been able to blog in over a month, and have missed you a lot. You mentor me through your blog.
I am trying to be a mentor to my children, but sometimes they mentor me!

Love you!
