Greetings everyone! Lately I have been reading Shaping Their Future: Mentoring Students Through Their Formative College Years by Guy Chmieleski. Just finished it last night and now am ready to review it.
This book is all about mentoring. The thesis is for mentors to go out and seek college students to befriend them and join them as they walk with Jesus.
Mentors can help students see the need to grow up and take responsibility for themselves in their lives.
Mentors can help students see the need for faith, to have it, and develop it.
Mentors can walk with students while they navigate through life in college.
Mentors can help students learn to deal with money.
Mentors can help students grow to be more responsible in all areas of their life.
Mentors can help students deal with their past as they look to the future.
Mentors can help students find a community of faith and find their place in that community.
Mentors can help students develop emotional intimacy with other people.
Mentors can help students sort through what they had been taught about “others”, those who are different in some way then you.
And the author shares just how important mentors are to the future leaders the church.
This book is an excellent resource for those who work with college students in every way. I highly endorse this work.
To get this book go to the author’s website at http:faithoncampus.com to watch a video about the book, and purchase the book Shaping Their Future.
I love college students and hope to see them grow to become all that God calls them to be.
Comments, questions, ect are always welcomed and encouraged.
God bless you all.
Grace and Peace.
