     In sponsoring someone, the best way given is to share your own experience, strength and hope.  A lot of this website is for inner growth of ourselves.  I am trying to add weekly, new topics on sponsorship from my own experience, strength and hope.  There are so many different topics that are important to me in sponsorship, it is hard to organize, and put it all together.  I am going to try to cover several different topics for you.  I also thought it would be nice to add assorted downloads and links to help you to answer questions and have printable papers for homework you've done or will do.  It is so hard to know what assignments to take on, or give out to your sponsee's.  I have found some really neat downloadable homework templates, and assignments on the web.  If you know of any others you would like listed, please let us know.  I am not recommending that you give or do any homework, I am only offering what I have found on the internet for your own personal use.  None of this is going to take the place of working with a sponsor, but I hope it aides you along the way.   I will include the links for the different steps on the web page of that step.  Literature on each topic can also be found on each web page.  Assorted downloads and homework are listed below.  Click on the TOPIC you interested in, and it will take you to the area you want to see more about.  I hope you enjoy the site!                 T.  

Service is like wetting your pants.

Everybody sees it, but you're the one who feels the warmth....
