At 12, a bewildered adolescent found a teacher, friend, mentor and spiritual father who saw beyond the boy’s confusion to who he truly was. It began a life-changing relationship which led to him mentoring men around the world. Mentoring is a journey of both listening to and strengthening the spirit over the noise of the flesh. It grows disciples who make disciples. This book contains stories and offers guidelines to effective mentoring. In an age where people are being “mentored” by default through social media, this book is a call for mentors to help mentees discover their unique story and find their way to mentoring others.
