    “I see mentoring more now as a way to respond where someone is at rather than a formal discussion or me giving advice on life circumstances…through this course I see mentoring as a next step most believers can do…I have more tools in my toolbelt for how to more deeply engage in conversations. I know I am still growing, but I can’t wait to go through this course again…” – Spring, TX
