The Power of Mentors

This post came through my email today from Simple Mom. I am sharing it with all of you because I have an amazing mentor in my life, and I think you all should too! :) Take the time to read it and let me know what you think.

I have referred to my mentor a lot on my blog. It was never something that was formally "set up" and we didn't sign a contract or anything. It kind of just happened. If fact, I don't know if she would tell you that she is my mentor - but I will tell you that she IS my mentor.

When I feel like I'm falling, I call on her. When I succeed, she cheers me to the finish line. Now, of course - my Mom is a wonderful mentor - and I call on her A LOT when I'm falling and need cheers!! And my Mom is always there for me!

A mentor - to me - is someone who has GONE BEFORE ME. Sheri is able to walk me through a variety of issues because she has gone before me - and I ADMIRE her as a woman, RESPECT her as a parent and LOVE her as a friend. (oh, and she's Young Mother of the Year too!)

I love you, Sheri. Thanks for mentoring me - even when you don't know you are.

I look forward to the day when I can mentor a woman.

Do you have a mentor?


  1. That post just made my day! It is a privilege and blessing, given to me by God, to be there for you when you are falling, and when you are heading for the finish line!!

    I love you,

  2. Myah,
    I love and admire you too. You are a woman looking to be the best version of you and you carry that to all your many roles.

    As moms, we're all in this together looking to raise up the next round of adults who will lead us.

    I am honored to be considered someone you look to. As we discover how to walk this road, may we all learn from those who have navigated a head of us and may we reach over to help this looking for a hand.

    Love your friend
    the YOUNG mother of the year.
    (I'm liking the YOUNG part :)
