    Becoming a Woman of Influence

    This book has good intentions but did not exactly "wow" me. It discusses how women can and should mentor other women. Many examples from the New Testament with what Jesus did are given. Real life stories from women are included, as well. However, the book doesn't focus on women influencing men or young children. It just deals with women mentoring other women. A big thing that caught my attention was the translation of the Bible verses included. I am not exactly sure which it is, but it is definitely not KJV, NKJV, or NLT. The words seem more modern. A lot of that modern speech may help some readers understand Kent's points more. However, for me, I prefer the other translations. That's just my personal bias, though. A nine-week Bible study is included, which is nice. It shows how Kent wants mentors to not just have good intentions but actually know what they are talking about when they talk about God.

    Superb guide on learning to "Become a Woman of Influence"!

    One thing I can never say about Carol Kent is that she is boring - for she never is!

    This book reveals deep insights concerning women growing into influential positions, and embracing women like these into our lives. She highlights main points that point directly to scripture, revealing that these insights truly did not come from herself - but from direction of her relationship with God.

    Though it took me a couple of months to read the book (I just so happen to slowly digest good books like this), when I found myself reading the book, I discovered I had a hard time putting it down (but when my eyes are starting to close due to just be over tired, I do what I have to do).
    Carol's style, grace, compassion and mercy flow through this book as the personal mentor she encourages all women to find in their own lives.

    The companion 9-week study guide is excellent - and it prompts you to journal rather than fill in the blanks; which I find to be deeply helpful in learning and growth.

    If you don't have a personal mentor in your life, please embrace this book until one enters into your life.

    Good for Someone Thinking about Mentoring Someone

    This book is put out by NavPress, which is always a really reliable publishing company. I tend to enjoy the quality of books they put out.

    Becoming a Woman of Influence is about encouraging the reader to invest in the lives of younger women. Kent outlined some key points in how to make a lasting impact on others. Much of the book was a review for me, but for someone who has never taken a younger woman under her wing, this would be an excellent book to read. There is no hokey-ness to this book- only real examples from real people about what it looks like to mentor someone. I especially liked her chapter on Storytelling, which emphasized that we often learn best through hearing others' stories. Sometimes mentoring can focus on information transfer, but often the power of stories is underestimated.

    Anyway, an easy, refreshing read that had solid content. If you've been mentoring others, you probably don't need to read this book, but if you would like to encourage another woman to invest her life in others (and you know she hasn't), this could be a good gift!

    Excellent book

    As the women's ministry leader at our church, I have my team go through this book once a year. Keeps it fresh for the "oldies" and gives the "newbies" something to strive for. The perfect book for any woman in a mentoring role. (Which the author says is ALL of us!)
