I'm headed off to a retreat this weekend about Becoming a Woman of Influence.
No, this isn't the Hillary Clinton kind of influence.....I'm talking about influencing the lives, hearts and soles here....not worldly power! I mentor a young woman and this retreat will be speaking to that.
My hope in mentoring her is to develop a strong relationship with her. To give her one more person in her life that she can trust. To be one more person in her life who shows her love. To be one more person in her life who will speak truth in love. To be one more person in her life who will encourage her. To be one more person in her life who will help her grow in her relationship with the Lord. I just want to "do life" with her....and along the way I pray that I will influence her in such a way that will draw her nearer to God and encourage her to keep striving to live in accordance to His Word and will.
I'm excited to see what the weekend has to offer!
