15. After Hayley’s miscarriage, with the integrity of the Foundation questioned and the matter of fidelity raised, Katherine thought of the story of Job. How does one find a way to praise God in bad times as well as in good times? Have you had such an experience? Explain.
16. Although not tempted himself, Brad thought he could now understand why some people resort to suicide. How can we prepare ourselves ahead of time so that suicide is never a temptation when life seems broken beyond repair and our strength is used up?
17. Katherine said divorce isn’t supposed to happen to people like her. She had been as good a wife as anyone could and she was not going to have people thinking she was a failure. Nor was she going to have God thinking that of her. How is this way of thinking flawed? Do you think this is a good reason for not getting a divorce? Is there a good one?
18. Katherine thought perhaps God had spared her any testing before because He knew how utterly she would fail. And wasn’t her failing marriage enough without a failing faith as well? What would be a more optimistic, hopeful, godly way for Katherine to look at things? Have you felt like this?
19. Sometimes, events from our past have more effect on our lives than we realized. What did Katherine come to understand about the death of her father when she was a teenager? As far as trusting God to take care of her? As far as needing to be in control of everything? Can you share an example of this from your own life?
20. “Come with Me.” Katherine heard these words and answered, finally, with abandonment of her own control, giving God her complete trust. So many of us allow Jesus to be our Savior but never get as far as letting Him also be our Master, Father, Friend. What profound changes did this new knowledge make in Katherine’s life? What about yours?
