Questions for Discussion: 

  • How could you relate to Kate or Melissa’s story of brokenness that God redeemed? 
  • Kate talked about inviting the Holy Spirit into tough conversations; why do you think this is important?
  • Melissa talked about the importance of not labeling our differences or disagreements as permanent—why is it important to speak the language of hope in our relationships?  
  • In what way has God used your past to prepare you for your present? 
  • What do you think God is using in your life right now to prepare you for what He has for you next?
  • Banana bread question just for fun: Plain, chocolate chips, or walnuts?
