Carol Kent is hilariously funny, biblically sound, and heartbreakingly transparent in person and in print. Founder and president of Speak Up for Hope (a prison ministry) and Speak Up Speaker Services (a speakers' bureau), Carol is the best-selling author of many books, including When I Lay My Isaac Down, A New Kind of Normal, Becoming a Woman of Influence, Speak Up with Confidence, Secret Longings of the Heart, and Tame Your Fears. She is an expert on public speaking, writing, and evangelism. Carol travels the world, speaking to tens of thousands each year at events such as Extraordinary Women, Vision New England, Women of Faith, THRIVE, and Women of Grace. Carol and her husband, Gene, make their home in Florida.

This book is mainly about older Christian women becoming mentors to younger Christian women. Becoming a Woman of Influence has nine chapters and they are Impacting Live Like Jesus Did, Learning from the Master, The Principle of Time Alone with God, The Principle of Walking and Talking, The Principle of Storytelling, The Principle of Asking Questions, The Principle of Compassion, The Principle of Unconditional Love, The Principle of Casting Vision. Then after those chapters comes a Nine-week Bible Study.
This book shows us if we just follow Jesus’ example and do what He did we will be doing the right thing.
Here is three facts from the book that really jumped out at me.
1. One person (Jesus) trained twelve human beings who went on th so influence th world that time itself is now recorded as being before or after His existence.
2. This person (Jesus) worked with a staff that was totally human and not divine… a staff that in spite of illiteracy, questionable backgrounds, fractious feelings, and momentary cowardice went on to accomplish the tasks He trained them to do. They did this for one man the reason-to be with Him again.
3.His leadership style was intended to be put to use by any of us.
So the author is saying we can mentor twelve people and get fantastic results also.
Very good book that I believe would be an interest if you want to start a program like this or have someone older mentor you.
