This was a very insightful book - I am currently applying what I've learned from it in a few different "KTC" relationships and it is extremely helpful. A few tips from the book actually changed the way I think about and approach women who ask me for counsel. Specifically, that I can't help them myself - but I can point them to Jesus and He can help them (of course, the book explains that more fully). Slapped my forehead and said "Oh, DUH!". I'll be using this for reference in the future. The gui ...more

Excellent book for the woman who desires to be used by the Lord to teach/mentor/counsel other women per the Titus 2 mandate. The author has no formal credentials but is the Counselor-at-Large at Multinomah University by virtue of her wisdom and experience gained over many years of serving the Lord faithfully.

I highly recommend this book to any woman who wants the Biblical tools for developing healthy mentoring relationships with other women. Women seek refuge, solace, and healing most often in the form of friendships and Muriel Cook helps guide us in helping our friends and others who come to us with needs. The book provided insight into areas of my own life that needed healing and restoration and has encouraged me in my walk with the Lord and challenged me to be in Scripture more.

Loved this book! Read it with my seminary wives small group and it has been one of my favorites. Such practical, biblical advice about all kinds of big life issues. Gives women examples of how to be a mentor to other women with issues from suicide to grief and fear. I will definitely be using it as a resource for years to come.

This was a very helpful book. The group I read it with ended up being like a group-therapy session; it is not only good for equipping women to help other women, but it helps you figure out some of your own baggage as well, and provides "homework" assignments to deal with a variety of problems.

I appreciated that this book points the reader and their theoretical counselees back to God. That's something I need to remember. Ultimately I didn't find it as helpful as I might have liked and I didn't like all of what there was to be said.

Oh so practical help in counseling other women when you aren't a professional counselor yourself. How to deal with those crisis situations that your friends, acquaintances or ministry contacts might find themselves in.
