My First Book: HEART to heart: A Discipleship and Mentoring Plan

For many years the Lord ministered to me that He wanted me to write Bible-teaching materials to minister His word to others, and to help them do the same. The vision began as “Living Stones Bible Curriculum” but later God showed me the “Living Stones” lessons were only a small part of a bigger vision. The “Living Stones” topic is going to be addressed in another book, later down the road.

Through many years of ministry to others (mostly children), God taught me many lessons. I also attended Bible classes and small-group Bible studies which helped with God’s plan of preparing me for service. The combination of my lessons, personal experiences while walking with God and prophecies spoken over me came to fruition in HEART to heart: A Discipleship and Mentoring Plan. These will also come out as God leads me to write and publish the many other Bible Study books He has laid on my heart to write.

Have you ever experienced the transforming love and power of God as He poured His grace into your heart? Have you ever experienced the cleansing, healing, and restoration of your heart and life? Have you ever experienced a passion for telling your testimony and sharing the news of God’s transforming power with others?

HEART to heart Bible studies can be used for individual and group studies.  God has poured out His transforming power and love into the hearts of all believers. Small groups can also offer a demonstration of God’s love in action: believers reach out, and God uses them to demonstrate His transforming power and love to those around them.  Through this demonstration of God’s power, His loving-kindness draws others to Himself.

Heart to heart: A Discipleship and Mentoring Plan also provides believers an opportunity to study God’s word and learn about Him. It also shows believers how they can, through sharing their gifts, talents, testimonies, and love, help others overcome the challenges in their lives. It also shows them how God can use people, providing them with opportunities to share the gospel and bring encouragement to those with broken hearts and lives. Through the power of God, lives can be transformed and broken hearts and lives can be restored.

In the Great Commission in Matthew 28:19-20 NKJV, Jesus commands believers to “go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; (…).”

Discipleship begins with our family–in our own homes. A Godly nation begins with Godly families! In Deuteronomy 6:6-9, God instructs His people to keep His words in their hearts, to teach them to their children, to bind them as a sign on their hand and as frontlets on their foreheads. He also wanted them to write them on the doorposts of their house and on their gates. God was, and still is, serious about His people learning His word and teaching it to others!

Front Cover:

The cover of HEART to heart: A Discipleship and Mentoring Plan depicts this basic foundation of discipleship. A family, whose members are my personal friends and fellow brothers and sisters in Christ, is depicted on the cover of this book. Unfortunately the father could not get free from work at the time this photo was taken. However, the parents have brought their children up in the ways of the Lord, even having their own personal home-school throughout the years. The photo shows each of the family members, with the exception of the baby, reading their Bibles and discussing what they’ve read. The older ones are teaching the younger ones.

Once we learn the Biblical foundations and establish a personal walk with God, we can take it out to others around us. Jesus commands us to do this in the great commission in Matthew 28:18-20.

Back Cover Text:

Have you ever experienced the transforming love and power of God as He poured His grace into your heart? Have you ever experienced the cleansing, healing, and restoration of your heart and life? Have you ever experienced a passion for telling your story and sharing the news of God’s transforming power with others?

HEART to heart: A Discipleship and Mentoring Plan can help those with a heart to share God’s love  through these virtual pursuits. Reaching out with God’s love can be done as individuals or in small or large groups. The HEART to heart Plan offers Christian believers a set of guidelines for creating discipleship and mentoring programs in their churches or as outreaches that come under the authority of Jesus Christ and the local church.

As the world becomes more evil and more threatening, the HEART to heart Plan can help set up places of support where people can come and get encouragement, love, prayer, and help in dealing with the issues of life. HEART to heart groups can also offer a demonstration of God’s love in action: believers reach out, and God uses them to demonstrate His transforming power and love–that He has poured into their hearts by the Holy Spirit–to share with others.

In the Great Commission in Matthew 28:19-20 NKJV, Jesus commands believers to “go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; (…).”

The HEART to heart Plan provides believers with an opportunity to be used by Jesus to help others overcome broken hearts and lives through sharing God’s word, their gifts and testimonies, and, most of all, love.
