Table Mentoring Amazon Review

What an honor to be able to share my thoughts on this wonderful book by my friend Sue.  She shows us how to come alongside others in their journey, while developing our own personal growth plan which helps us accomplish those necessary things in our own journey.

Sharing What I've Learned at the Feet of Jesus

I’m grateful for the opportunity to share with you a few thoughts on this author and my fruitful takeaways from her book. When I first met Sue she showed such hospitality, sharing some of her journey and intently engaged as I shared some of mine. I must say, she showed me during those few days together, what coming alongside was really all about.

I could have read these six chapters all in one sitting, but I wanted to take my time and digest all of the wonderful nuggets packed inside. I recall some of the most notable parts that caused me to stop and think, and consider how I come alongside others in my every day.

Sue challenges us to consider sharing what we’ve learned at the feet of Jesus, knowing someone really needs to hear it...our journey, our experiences. She also shares that “mentoring, at a table or not, needs to be a part of every believer’s life”. What a call to action! And she also tells us that not feeling adequate to mentor and share on those levels, makes us more ready than we think we are. So, I admit, I felt a little nudge right there. We mentor another from our own experience of being mentored by God. He comes alongside us when we experience hard times, enabling us to be there for others during their tough journey (I Corinthians 1: 3, 4). When we view it from this perspective, it’s hard to ignore our calling in this area.

I was also encouraged, as a theme throughout the book and a reminder at the end, to ask God for His priorities, and take (quiet) time to pray. Who should I reach out to? When and where should I connect with them? What should I say and which scriptures should I share? When should I pray, and study, and come alongside someone who needs to see and hear what you have shared with me God?

This book is one that encourages every one of us to step out and share our lives with someone else. Whether it is sharing a cup of coffee in a cafe, muffins hot out of the oven in our home, or the bread of life with someone we just met, we are all called to this. We are blessed to be a blessing.

Thank you Sue, for sharing your heart with us so we can feel a little bit more adequate to share ours with someone else.
