Ask Dr. B: How To Find a Mentor

This week while Dr. Bengtson is continuing to recover from a several week-long bout with pneumonia, her friend and author Jayme Hull, will be answering a question based on her newly released book, “Face To Face Discover How Mentoring Can Change Your Life.”

Dear Jayme,

I know your book is about mentoring but how did your passion for mentoring begin?

Great question. When I arrived in NYC to become a Broadway star, I often felt about two inches tall and totally lost. Just a number in a huge crowd, surrounded by highly competitive people.

Where You Are

Where You Are

Have you ever had those times when you were really growing in your walk with the Lord? Confident in Him and who you are in Him?

What I really need is a strategy for turning my thoughts to the Lord. What I hear all the time is that we NEED to do that, but not as much about strategies for doing that. Sometimes, in my desperation, I take a simple verse and just repeat it over and over so I can stop the rat wheel of fearful thoughts. [more]

6 Lessons Learned When The Doctor Orders More Rest

One sick day spilled into two. Two days lapsed into three days. Three days bled into a full week. Before I knew it, a week stretched into three weeks. How did we get here?

On that first day, I felt so miserable, I left my office early and didn’t much care that I had to cancel appointments, meets, and commitments. I figured a little extra R & R and I’d be up and around the next day, ready to meet the world with my usual gusto. [more]
