Keeping our “experiences” in check when mentoring girls.


Remember your leaders, those who spoke to you the word of God. Consider the outcome of their way of life, and imitate their faith. (Heb 13:7).

The most important thing is putting women in and around the girls ministry that get God’s word in their lives and girls can see the outcome of that in the way they live their everyday lives. Don’t let YOUR PAST EXPERIENCES become your primary girlsministry tool.

Some questions to ask regarding when to use a life experience:

1. Am i sharing this to bring attention to myself?

2. Are there parts of this experience that do not need to be disclosed? Too much information for a certain age group to hear?

3. Am I sharing this experience because it has been healed, redeemed, transformed or is this possibly a therapy session for me?

4. Sharing an experience brings a certain level of authenticity at times so I’m not saying never share personal stories, just ask yourself—what spiritual truth does this experience reinforce as I mentor this sister in Christ?
