Conversation Starters

Go deeper with the weekly teaching and use these conversation starters with your Life Group, family, friends, or roommates.

  1. If everyone is new in your group, take a moment and go around the circle, and share a bit about yourself. Include your topics like… born, raised, family, spiritual journey.
  2. Why are you digging into this topic of emotional health? What do you hope to get out of the 8-week study?
Take an inventory of your own emotional maturity:Not very trueSometimes trueMostly trueVery true
I often admit when I’m wrong, readily asking forgiveness from others (Matt. 5:23 – 24).1234
I am able to speak freely about my weaknesses, failures, and mistakes (2 Cor. 12:7 – 12).1234
Others would easily describe me as approachable, gentle, open, and transparent. (Gal. 5:22 – 23;
1 Cor. 13:1 – 6).
Those close to me would say that I am not easily offended or hurt (Matt. 5:39 – 42, 1 Cor. 13:5).1234
I am consistently open to hearing and applying constructive criticism and feedback that others might have for me (Prov. 10:17; 17:10; 25:12).1234
I am rarely judgmental or critical of others
(Matt. 7:1 – 5).
Others would say that I am slow to speak, quick to listen, and good at seeing things from their perspective (James 1:19 – 20).1234
