“Life on Life: The Practice of Spiritual Mentoring” is a practical guide for those wishing to help others become their best selves. “Life on Life: The Practice of Spiritual Mentoring” is the creation of published author Peter Kettler, a married father and grandfather whose long career in business and service in ministry fostered unique opportunities to inspire others to take ownership of their own personal development. He lives with his wife of fifty years at their home in Denver and their ranch outside of Steamboat Springs, Colorado.

“Life on Life” is a different approach to mentoring. As the subtitle (The Practice of Spiritual Mentoring) indicates, it is both practical and spiritual at the same time. It is practical because it gives guidelines as to how to mentor. Peter even incorporates many important “do’s” and “don’ts” of mentoring.

It’s the spiritual aspect of mentoring that really makes this book come alive. Peter suggests that it is the Holy Spirit that should be the guide that both the mentor and his protégé should follow. It’s the mentor’s job to help discern the Spirit’s leading and follow. He has the attitude before his mentoree of “Follow me, follow Christ.” There is a chapter entitled “Being Led by the Holy Spirit in Mentoring,” which gives insight into the spirituality of mentoring.

Other compelling chapters are:

  • Recasting the Vision for Mentoring
  • The Attitude of a Mentor
  • It’s About Story
  • Template for Our Stories: The Journey of Transformation
  • A Biblical Example of Mentoring

The author even includes a chapter from each of two of his longtime mentorees. It’s fascinating to get their perspective on this style of mentoring. Maybe the best part of the book are the stories, both his and his mentorees, that Peter intertwines through the book. Look in particular for the one about his blind friend, Michael. It’s truly inspirational.

Peter’s letter to his father to his father long after his death (see appendix B) is poignant and sets the backdrop for Peter’s journey to becoming a “mentor of mentors.” Peter has encouraged many men to write letters to their fathers which have born much fruit.

Peter shares, “Many men were not fathered well and need a mentor to come alongside to encourage them in their journey through life. If you are one of them or would like to mentor another man, this book is for you!”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Peter Kettler’s new book is both a reflection the author’s real experiences mentoring four different men and a practical guide for men ready to embark on the incredibly rewarding journey of mentoring others.
