Welcome CWLC Advocates

CWLC Advocates, here's some updated information for you! 

We are getting ready to start our 9 Books 9 Months Leadership Challenge! Last year, Dr. Gail Hallman took all nine of these courses and now has her Leadership Certificate! This year we'll be doing a Facebook Live each week when we go through the courses. That way, we can all stay connected.

Mentoring: Where Do I Begin?

 “As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another” (Prov. 27:17).

Mentoring sometimes seems like a daunting task, doesn’t it? For both parties involved, it can be a little overwhelming to think about at first.


However, mentoring is actually biblical and necessary for a body of believers, and it doesn’t have to be burdensome at all.

The idea may sound great, but the execution, well, maybe not so much. How exactly do you get started, as a mentor or as a mentee?

Take the 9 Books–9 Months Leadership Challenge

Last year, Reading Wars, Philip Yancey’s July 20 blogpost, stirred a commotion about how social media and the Internet train you to read short passages, distracting you from the deep reading of books.

Lonely but Not Alone

 

It’s that time of year: school is starting again, and women are preparing for the changes that a new school year brings. At home it means homework, projects, sports, activities, and packing lunches and water bottles. At work it means changes in customers, traffic, and many other things.


For me as the mother of two school-age boys, the biggest change is that the sound of children in my home will be gone for at least 6 hours each weekday.
