Transforming Together: Authentic Spiritual Mentoring

"I want to be a cake!"

Recently I went to share about mentoring with a group of women.  A mentee joined me as well!  We were so excited to "be" for Jesus!  We entered the room as the leaders of the group (always early, Leaders!) were busily setting up for the others who would soon arrive.

She approached me, excited.  I felt her energy before I actually saw her.  She stopped right in front of my face and exclaimed, with eyes shining, "Ele, I want to be a cake!"

What was this dear woman referring to?  A cake?  Well, there's a concept that is shared in the first pages of "Transforming Together."  Those of you who have read the book might remember the analogy.  The point is, do we want "Jesus in EVERY bite of life" or do we want to "pick and choose" 'tastes' of Him in our life?  The book goes on to say, " In a cake, all the ingredients are there, each ingredient is enjoyed and experienced in EVERY bite of the cake."

Do YOU want Jesus in "every bite? of life?  If so, how does this "taste" to you?
Please share.

Enjoying a bite right now,

I love love love that you posted this today... walk with me a little on a journey this morning. I was led to read your book this morning, actually reread the beginning, and I believe the Lord was pointing me to something. I was trying so hard to be authentic that I think I lost something in the travel. Thankfully it hasn't been too long or too far of a misstep.
I "picked up my toothbrush" again this morning. It is wonderful.
