Betty Huizenga, author and founder of Apples of Gold, says “Mentoring is really nurturing—sharing ideas from life lessons and passing on wisdom, ideas, and truth from God from one generation to the next. It is a forgotten art—one that we have neglected and, in the process, we have lost the joy and sheer fun of days gone by.”
At the heart of Apples of Gold is the desire to touch the lives of women, young and old, by reviving the art of older women nurturing younger women. In Gifts of Gold, Betty encourages and instructs the wonderful ‘golden women’ who have answered God’s call to be mentors. Wondering if you were meant to mentor? Answer these questions for yourself:
• Can you be a friend?• Can you listen?• Can you share what Christ has done in your life?• Do you care about the needs of other women?• Do you have a tender heart toward God and others?
THEN YOU CAN BE A NURTURING WOMAN! Nurturing others is much like passing on a priceless heirloom. Your life and the lessons God has taught you were meant to be shared—preserved and passed on from generation to generation. You are a precious gift of gold God wants to unwrap and show to others. You can be a mentor—Gifts of Gold can help you get started!
