Our summer session is drawing to a close! God has been challenging me and changing me this summer through the studies and groups I’ve been leading. Turning areas of my life over to His control is sometimes scary… but so exciting and worthwhile!
I’ve received emails from a few women who have felt God’s prompting to start leading a GMG group, and also corresponded with some current leaders who want to be more effective. It’s one of those ‘scary steps.’ Being a leader is intimidating – just the awareness that others are looking to you to be an example is daunting! While it may not require public speaking, leadership does require you to be public about your very private beliefs and thoughts.
How about you? Is this something that God has been speaking to you about? Could this be your ‘Anything?’
If it is, we’d like to help!
Good Morning Girls has some amazing resources for leaders.
- A Leader’s Guide with many practical helps.
- A GMG Leaders facebook support group.
- Registered GMG Leaders also have access to a Leaders Only section of the website, where all the materials are located that you need to successfully lead a study.
But more than that – we offer mentoring!
The mentoring sessions are small GMG groups led by experienced GMG Leaders. The two week study, called ‘Women of Influence,’ takes you on a path studying influential women in the Bible – and how you can learn from them and follow their example in your own leadership. At the same time, the Mentor Leaders share helpful articles that talk about things like setting up a group and finding members, dealing with conflict and difficult situations, facing discouragement, and more!
GMG Mentoring Testimonies
Bobbie participated in one of the mentoring groups, and this is what she had to say.
“This is an awesome program that Good Morning Girls provides! I not only felt my own confidence building to lead a group on my own, but also felt my relationship with Christ deepen to another level! I would recommend participating to anyone who is interested in leading/mentoring or even if just contemplating the idea. The scripture/subject material is relevant to not only leading a study, but being a “leader” in Christ in everyday life.”
The Mentor Leaders are a wonderful team of experienced GMG Leaders. Between them they have led more than 70 sessions! These ladies have a heart for God and a heart for serving others. I am incredibly honored to work with them! Our mentors for this session are Ann, Ellen, Heather, Jessica M, Jessica R, Julie, Kesha, Mandy, Martha, Shaun, Sherry, and Veronica.
The Mentor Leaders are there to show you, by example, how to lead a group. They will answer any questions you have, as well – so ask away! These women are maybe the most valuable resource we can offer you.
The upcoming Mentoring Session will start on Monday, August 5th and run until Friday, August 16th. Just like a regular GMG study, daily participation is a must. The Mentor Groups are a little more intensive than a typical GMG study, so please, seriously consider your involvement before applying. There are a limited number of spots available.
To apply to participate in a mentoring group with a Mentor Leader, please fill out this form.
Applications will close on Sunday, July 28th.
