Mentoring: Lerato Moeng

God has given each of us gifts to use in specific ways. Lerato Moeng enjoys helping people who are feeling stuck in life to move forward.  She is the co-founder of Virtue Corner Consulting. Here is our interview with her on her work and her mission in life.

Inside Woman Online: How did you get to know Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Saviour?

Lerato Moeng: God will do whatever, use anything to get anyone to Him and we know it: but He leaves the choice to us. I grew up going to Church and this was normal thing. That’s the life I knew. One day I attended our Church’s youth conference. Things had just taken a turn in our denomination and older more matured brothers and their wives were preaching the gospel of Salvation. It’s like they grew out of nowhere. In that particular session they preached, I was partially listening because of the noise that was going on at the back. An alter call was made and it made no difference to me. One woman led a song, a simple song in a very tiny voice. Its like heaven was pulling me. It was not much about the wording of the song, but it was like that voice was inadvertently telling me that God is alive and calling me. I think I was still a bit playful when I responded and started my confession prayer. However the moment I finished and left the front I knew that was real, this was it and there is no going back for me. I loved it, I felt complete. God has a way of taking me by surprise.

Inside Woman: Why do you think it’s important to follow your dreams?

Lerato Moeng: It gives you a sense of purpose and stirs courage within you. Dreams are there to keep us alive and active. They are able to bring the best out of us, propels us to achieve. They keep us focused and have the ability to affect those around us positively.

Inside Woman: You have an extensive background in counselling. How did you make the transition from counselling to coaching?

Lerato Moeng: Virtue Corner Consulting, the company I co-founded offered me an excellent opportunity to do that and I enrolled with a leadership and strategic coaching and mentoring institute to ensure I am well equipped.

It afforded me the opportunity to get practice and I have to continually educate myself in order to stay abreast with new trends and developments.
