What people have said about “Mentor for Life”:

“Bold and wise, Mentor for Life is an intentional discipleship guide for the women who officially or unofficially lead others. With refreshing boldness, this book trains and equips leaders for a great purpose.”

Sarah Bessey, author of “Out of Sorts: Making Peace with an Evolving Faith” and “Jesus Feminist”

“Spiritual growth is something we do by ourselves and is between us and God.” That’s a very American thought, but actually it has nothing to do with biblical Christianity. Natasha Sistrunk Robinson explains clearly, not only why Christians need to mentor and be mentored, but how to best go about it. The information in “Mentor for Life” will revolutionize your spiritual life.”

Shane Blackshear, Host of Podcast: Seminary Dropout, ShaneBlackshear.com

“With clear focus on Jesus’ priorities, Natasha leads us to love God, to love others and to make disciples.   She demonstrates that this kind of growth and maturity in the child of God happens best in a mentoring relationship.  Foundational reasoning and practical teaching and examples make this a fabulous tool for any church or ministry desiring to build multiplying disciples.”

Judy Douglass, Global Leadership and Director, Women’s Resources, Cru

“Natasha Sistrunk Robinson is a truth-teller and the truth is, we need truth-tellers. In her book, Mentor for Life: Finding Purpose through Intentional Discipleship, you will encounter a fundamental truth: We all need mentors as we make our way through this messy complicated world.  Read this book and be encouraged.”

Dr. Frank A. James III, President, Biblical Theological Seminary

In her book, Mentor for Life: Finding Purpose Through Intentional Discipleship, Natasha Robinson carefully sets forth a very powerful and practical way that this is done. While it is written with women primarily in mind, it is a welcome gift for the whole Body of Christ.”

Bishop (Dr.) Claude Alexander, Jr., Senior Pastor of The Park Church in Charlotte, NC

Now you can join in the conversation. Invite your book club, small group, Bible study, and friend to join in the fun. I look forward to connecting with you soon.

Blessings, Natasha

 

 

Special Announcement: Preparing to Mentor Well

Special Announcement: Preparing to Mentor Well

I’m back for Mentoring Monday!

Over the past 1 ½ years, I have been traveling across the country and the world sharing the kingdom message of mentoring as intentional discipleship. I have been overjoyed to hear the impact that my first book, Mentor for Life: Finding Purpose through Intentional Discipleship has made and is making in the daily lives of people—including transformation in the ways they live, love God, love others, and minister in their local context.

Me sharing “Mentor for Life” with students in Rwanda this summer, and providing leadership training to women in Nigeria this fall. 

I wrote that book out of my own personal mentoring experiences and from the mentoring ministry that I was leading in my local church. It is my hope and prayer that it continues to convict, encourage, and help people prioritize God’s kingdom mission of making disciples of all nations. Most people do not know that at the same time that I was writing the book, I was also compiling material to prepare leaders to mentor well. The result of this work is the “Mentor for Life Leader’s Training Manual.

Summer Bible Study

Recently, I completed a Part 5 Bible study series with the kind folks at the Discover the Word broadcast. We went through the gospels to discuss God’s purpose and plan for intentional discipleship. These recordings are now available and would be a great option for a personal devotional this summer, or to engage a  small Bible study group.

Below you will find the series breakdown and highlights:

Part 1 How do we live out Jesus’s Great Commission?

 

Mentoring as intentional discipleship is for God’s kingdom purposes. Why is discipleship and the use of the mentoring language important?

Scripture: Matthew 28:18-20

 

Part 2 Is there a difference between Christ-followers and the lost?

Evangelism without discipleship is incomplete; they are two sides of the same coin. Is our current way of thinking about evangelism and discipleship in the right order?

Scripture: John 1:35-51

 

Part 3 Discipleship: A Matter of both Knowing and Doing

Discipleship requires that we look outside of our own needs to see the spiritual and physical needs of others.

Scripture: John 6:1-14

 

Part 4 Our Walk of Faith Requires Training

Love God and love people is the basic principle of discipleship. We can learn how to love well, and we can teach others how to love us well. There is a cost involved.

Scripture: Luke 10:25-28

 

Part 5 Mentor for Life (16:00 min)

The 5th Law of the Navy – “On the strength of one link in the cable, dependth the might of the chain, who knows when thou mayest be tested? So live that thou bearest the strain!”

The training of making disciples prepares us for the mission, and the training also prepares us for the test.

Scripture: John 4:31-38

Conclusion: Intentional discipleship or mentorship is an invitation to LINK Up with God in the kingdom work he is already doing in the world.

At else are you reading or studying this summer?
