Face to Face by Jayme Hull - A Review

What is a mentor?  A mentor is an experienced and trusted advisor.  Titus 2:3-5 instructs older women to teach younger women, to be a mentor to help them become the Christians, wives, and mothers that God desires them to be.

The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things;
That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children,
To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.

In the book Face to Face, Jayme Hull explains not only the benefits of having a mentor, but some practical advice on how to find one, and wonderful guidance on how to navigate the relationship once it is established.



The book was well written, and interesting to read.  It was well organized, starting with the reasons for mentoring, then moving on to finding a mentor, interacting with your mentor, and ending with becoming a mentor yourself. 

From the back:

Whether you have a mentor, can't seem to find one, or haven't even thought to look, Jayme Hull walks you through every aspect of this critical relationship, including: its purpose, value and benefits; marks of a healthy mentoring relationship; initiating, navigating, and even ending a mentorship; becoming a mentor to others.

Packed with stories and anecdotes from Jayme's experience as both a mentor and a mentee - plus sprinklings of wisdom on balance, purpose, and change - Face to Face speaks to the heart of young women eager to grow in their faith.  In her warm, personable style, Jayme offers advice on how to journey well with someone further along.

Face to Face definitely does everything that it sets out to do, and is well worth the read if you are interested in finding a mentor. 

You can purchase it on Amazon for $8.96.

Things That Annoy Infertile Girls (or Maybe Just Me?) - Flashback Friday

This was actually one of my more popular posts when it was first published, but I still thought I would share it again.  Any additions to the post are in pink, as usual :)

Accidental Pregnancies - So I have been trying for years to get pregnant, you go slut around and accidentally get pregnant? Immediate Pregnancies - You quit taking your birth control last month and now you are pregnant? People Who Give You Retarded Advice -           - Just stop trying and you will get pregnant
           - My friend adopted a baby and got pregnant right away, you should do that
           - Get drunk, people always get pregnant when they are drunk (Yes, they do. Because they are
             intoxicated and forget to take precautions.)
Whiny Girls That Pretend They Are Infertile - Trying for 5 months is not suffering from infertility. It takes a year on average to get pregnant.  I get that it might FEEL like infertility but it just isn't.  After YEARS of trying, I can't even remember what tr…

Manipulatives Monday GIVEAWAY from Mother Goose Time - closed

Giveaway closed! Thank you so much to everyone who entered, I really appreciate it!
I have excellent news!  Today is Manipulatives Monday, and Mother Goose Time is giving away a great prize!  One lucky winner will receive TWO bags of manipulatives!  Mother Goose Time will chose the prizes, but I assure you, whatever they send will be a lot of fun for your children!

Manipulatives are a big hit in our house.  Every month we get two new bags of manipulatives, and every month Little Guy asks if he can play with them before the month starts.  The answer is always no, but he tries every month anyways.  During the month we use them for the assigned activities but after we are done with the curriculum, I let him add them to his toy collection.
One thing that is in almost every box is a set of counters.  These are often in the shape of animals, which are Little Guy's favorites.  They are used for a variety of activities, and are always multiple colors, sizes, and/or shapes so they can be …

Review - Seven Everyday Slings

I got this sling because it was free, I only had to pay shipping.  Since I bought it, I have found out that it is VERY easy to find codes for this to be free, and I am pretty sure that if you ever pay full price for one you got duped.

I was SO excited.  I wanted a baby carrier really bad.  I didn't have a baby, but I am always collecting baby things.

In case you were thinking that I only review things that I like, I HATE THIS SLING! 

I have used it with tiny babies, older babies, and toddlers. 

Pros:
- Adorable, and available in a variety of colors
- Lightweight and compact, you can easily throw it in a diaper bag or purse
- Works from birth - 35 lbs


Cons:
- Terrifying to use with small babies.  They sink down in it, and its almost impossible to keep them from having their chin tucked to their chest, which is a huge no-no in baby carrying.  Basically when I had Cooper in it as an infant I spent the entire trip to the park making sure he was still breathing, then I started sticki…
