Although most Christian women wear several hats covering many responsibilities, many have little time to fulfill their desire to be of service to the Lord and others. Have you ever wished that you could do more than you are doing right now for the Lord? Have you ever thought about serving in your church community but nothing seems to fit your time frame or abilities? Whether you are a wife, mother, partner to your spouse, sole breadwinner, or even a career woman, most Christian women have a heart for serving the Lord. However, women often do not know where to start even though they may have a deep longing to serve God and others or to bring Christ's message to those who don't know him. This book will show women the importance of and the ease of engaging in Active Relational Christian Mentoring (ARCM). Through true mentoring stories, the author also explains and demonstrates the importance of Christ being at the center of all mentoring relationships. Having Christ at the center of the braided three-strand cord of mentoring means positive, meaningful, and loving help is there for both the mentor and mentee. The three-strand cord of ARCM also provides a caring and efficient way for Christian women to support, encourage, enlighten, and empower other women through the development of godly mentoring relationships. It is through their personal relationships that women are given the opportunity to shine the light of Christ on others. You can do it! You can mentor another woman for the Lord!
