Can I just tell you how this has been hanging over me? Things that are undone take so much more energy than just finishing them, don't they?
All that to say, thank you for your patience and I apologize for not doing what I said I would do.
So, let's finish this discussion...finally!
1. Spiritual mothering requires energy..."enormous energy." Hunt talks about three levels of motivation: love for the other person, love for Jesus, and Christ's love compelling us.
Read the paragraphs at the top of page 175. What does this kind of renewal look like in this season of your life? Does it change?
2. It takes confidence to separate. "Being a spiritual mother means instilling Christ-confidence in a young woman so that she can leave me and face the world."
Beginning with the end in mind often changes the direction we take. How does view of separation toward the end of a mentoring relationship influence how you would approach the beginning of such a relationship?
3. Read "A Change in Relationship" beginning on page 178. What stands out to you in this section? If you have biological daughters, how does this section challenge you, encourage you, or scare you?
4. As you come to the end of this book, how would you summarize your "one thing"--what you are taking away from this book and putting into practice?
