Winter book Club – Week One

Welcome to week one of “Calm My Anxious Heart”

This week before you meet you will need to read:

  • Chapter One– “My Journey to Contentment”

The key verse(s) for you to memorize and/or meditate on this week are:

  • Philippians 4:12-13

Please watch this 10-minute video that features some encouragement for how to process as you’re reading, along with an important distinction (in relation to worry versus anxiety attacks) for us to consider before we begin:

Discussion questions for this week will include:

  • If you had to pick one statement or idea from this chapter that you feel is the most important or powerful, which would it be? 

  • On page 19, the author states that most of us fail to make God our trust either because we try too hard or because we quit trying. What do you think of this statement? Which end of the spectrum would you say you tend to land on, and why?

  • What’s something you had a question about, or maybe disagreed with?

  • What did you learn about God from this chapter? (Might not be a “brand-new-never-had-this-thought-before thing, but could also be something you already know but needed to be reminded of)

  • What did you learn about yourself from this chapter?
