Below are this week’s questions. But remember, don’t answer them on this post. We will take your answers and have discussion on Thursday. They are just posted here so you can be thinking about them as you read.

Questions for Chapter 10

  • What did you take away from the story of David rejecting Saul’s armor?
  • When you find yourself parenting out of comparison, how do you stop?
  • “We can’t judge the results or declare a final verdict too soon.” Have you ever experienced a difficult season with your children— one where you didn’t have much hope—but later, you saw the fruit?

Questions for Chapter 11

  • Have you experienced a time where you thought your child’s bad choice made you a bad mom?
  • How can we learn from the stories of Job and Eli? Feel free to touch on something Karen mentioned, or maybe your own insights from these Biblical characters.
  • How have your kids seen prayer answered in your life and in your family? How has this grown their faith?
