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.

Chapter 7 Questions:

  • Describe one thing from the past you feel you missed out on just because you were rushing.
  • What is something you will do today to make it count for Christ?
  •  Have you ever met someone who possessed the attributes of peace and purposefulness? What have they taught you?

Chapter 8 Questions:

  •  “Many parents want their children to become what they themselves are not.” Hmm. Is there any area of your motherhood where you’re expecting something of your children that you’re not exemplifying?
  • What is the vision you have for your kids? For some who accepted the gospel message mid-way through parenting, how did the vision for your kids change after you began living for Christ?
  • Which part of the passage from 1 Corinthians 13:4–8 about love, is the most challenging for you? Why?

Chapter 9 Questions:

  • When have you been most aware of God’s “I am” being sufficient for your “I am not?”
  • When did you feel most alone in motherhood? How did God reveal himself to you during that time? What are you still waiting on Him to do or show you?
  • How did this chapter encourage you? Did you identify with the author’s sentiments to “talk to God about your kids?”
