One of the greatest struggles of leaders is the lack of finding a mentor. We always feel like we are the ones pouring out and leading, but it is so important to have someone who can challenge you, be intimate with you, and with whom you can share your struggles. I met with mine today. We meet sporadically, but it works out to about once a month. I love the time that we get to spend together. I really feel like he challenges me. One of the great things about it is that I know that he puts time into it. He doesn't just show up and talk to me, he really thinks about what God wants him to say to me. That's the kind of person you need to have around you. Not yes people, not no people, but God people. JM
