GMG {Mentor} Leaders Program- Important Announcement

FB GMG Mentor Leaders Cover Photo 600

The call went out for women to apply for our leadership mentoring – and the response has been overwhelming!

I want to speak directly to the women who applied for a moment.

I’ve read through each and every application, multiple times. Your stories and deep desire to serve others while you lead touch my heart. I’ve become aware of what a deep desire this is within ourselves, as women. Both to lead others and teach other women, and also to have someone pouring themselves into our lives!

If I could somehow open up a spot for each woman who applied, I would! Unfortunately, it’s a simple matter of numbers. More women applied than there are spaces for.

I’ve pictured what your responses might be when I email you later this week regarding your application. For some there will be joy – or trepidation, when you realize that your application has been accepted. For others, disappointment when you’re told there weren’t enough spaces for you at this time.

How I have prayed for wisdom and discernment in the time leading up to this! As I read through the applications, I pray and I listen. I listen for the whisper of God, impressed on my spirit. “Yes, this one.” Or, “No, this isn’t the right time for her.” Or even, “I have different plans.” And, in faith, I trust in those whispers – even when my mind says, “This one would be a good leader!”

No matter the response you get later this week, please don’t be discouraged. If you are sure leading a GMG group is a calling God has placed on you for this time, He will also equip you to answer that call. GMG provides excellent resources to help you lead, even if you are unable to participate in the mentoring program.

Or maybe you need to spend some time in prayer, really discerning how God wants you to be involved. Perhaps there is a group that needs your input, and you are a valued group member. Perhaps there is a leader in need of support, and you can come alongside her to help and learn directly from her. Perhaps God wants you to concentrate on something else completely – leading is not for everyone.

And a challenge to all of us – the desire to nurture and be nurtured within women is deep. If God has placed a woman in your life who can help you grow in your character and faith, embrace it. Let her teach you! And if you find that you are in the place to be that woman in the life of another, trust God to help you. At various times in our lives we all need to be in one or both of those places!

My prayer for each of you is that you will be blessed by God, and be a blessing!

Amanda Buhler- GMG Mentor Leaders, Director

    Ohhh, my heart! While I realize there has been so many applicants than space for, will there be another program to apply for? I was unavailable this past week to fill out the application and I see the deadline has passed! :( I have such a strong desire to apply and pray there will be a future opportunity!

    • Hi Staci,
      Yes, we will be offering the mentoring program again – typically towards the end of a session. Keep your eye on the blog and hopefully you’ll catch it next time!

    I am excited to have found GMG as a resource for my life. I will be praying that God will lead this organization in the direction He would have it. He is in control. His will be done. Bless all of you. No matter the outcome, I am looking forward to the next season of my life with GMG.

    I too know that I could be used but that gentle whisper said now is not the time. I pray that all who recieve their letters will know that God is a God who doesnt make mistakes. And while there is some who will recieve those letters that may be not what they expected there is a whole world of broken women out
    there who need a Titus Woman to help guide them and not condemn.
    young women who need a Titus Woman in their lives to not.condemn

  6. Hi there! I know this is kinda off topic however , I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest authoring a blog post
    or vice-versa? My blog covers a lot of the same subjects as yours and I think we could
    greatly benefit from each other. If you might be interested feel free to send
    me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you! Fantastic blog by the way!
