Do you have a mentor? Someone who has traveled with you throughout your life, and helps to train you in God's ways, and in how to run your household and how to navigate your relationships? I wrote about those verses in Titus the other day, and I was struck by something. I know very few women who I would be willing to go to and say, "I want you to teach me how you live." Do you know anyone like that? The ones I do know seem so busy because everybody wants that from them. My mom has fulfilled a lot of that role in my life, but there's an aspect to that relationship that is both irreplaceable and a hindrance to the kind of mentoring I'm talking about. I'm sure you understand as you think about your own mother.

I came across this site today. Although it's not quite the same as meeting face to face with an older, wiser woman every week, there are definitely things I can learn from Laine.

Titus 2:3-5:

"3Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good. 4Then they can train the younger women to love their husbands and children, 5to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God."
