“We loved you so much that we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well…” I Thessalonians 2:8
I was shocked many years ago when a friend asked me, “What did you read in your quiet time this morning? What is God teaching you?” No one had ever shown an interest in my personal spiritual life before. She was intentionally seeking a spiritual dialogue with me – and went on to invest two years of her life in establishing me in my faith and equipping me for ministry. I learned so much from meeting with her weekly, watching her, and discussing books with her. My life was forever changed, thank you Susie Walther!
“At the heart of discipling is a relationship in which one or more believers assist or invest in each other in order to grow to maturity in Christ.” – Greg Ogden
Discipleship is really “life on life” – intentionally sharing our lives in community for the purpose of growing in our Christian faith. Women around the world hunger for depth in their friendships with other women and their spiritual lives. We desperately need transparency, accountability and encouragement to accelerate our spiritual growth. We were made for community!
I am so grateful for these mentors, professors, and friends who have shaped my journey!
