“When you see the ark of the covenant of the LORD your God…then you shall set out from your place. Follow it, so that you may know the way you should go, for you have not passed this way before.”

~Joshua 3:3-4

  4. Everyone needs a mentor, and, when they are experienced enough, a mentee (or two).

    By the way, you are one of my story teller mentors, Mitch. You inspire me to be a better writer.
