"You'd have to define spiritual direction in order for me to respond.  Anyway, I assumed that providing someone with spiritual direction can be a form of mentoring but it isn't necessarily mentoring by default. "

"It depends. A role model isn't necessarily a mentor. And a mentor is rarely perfect at everything and thus can't mentor you about everything. "
