What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“For many of us, the idea of having a mentor is appealing, and the suggestion of being a mentor is intimidating. Through this book, Melissa Kruger helps both the mentor and the mentee know where to start, what to cover, and how to make it work so that the mentoring relationship is a source of joy and growth for everyone involved.”
—Nancy Guthrie, Bible teacher; author, Even Better than Eden

“Mentoring and discipleship are essential for the Christian life, yet so many of us don’t quite know how to do it. Growing Together is not only needed; it’s also exactly the book we’ve been looking for. Melissa Kruger has written an instructive, biblically grounded, accessible, practical, and versatile book perfect for one-on-one mentoring relationships, groups, or individuals. Women who read this book will grow together in their faith as well as be equipped to do the work of ministry. I’m grateful for this resource and highly recommend it!”
—Trillia Newbell, author, If God Is For Us: The Everlasting Truth of Our Great Salvation

Growing Together is a resource for mentoring relationships that facilitates meaningful conversations centered around God’s word. Engaging questions and simple yet transformative suggestions for application will encourage women to grow together in godliness. This is an invaluable tool for any discipleship tool belt, and I am so thankful to add it to mine!”
—Hunter Beless, Founder and Executive Director, Journeywomen podcast
