Below you will find the Girl Wash Your Face guide that we used in my adult small group. I hope you find this helpful for your Girl Wash Your Face book club or small group. If you have questions to add, please put them in the comments below and I will happily add them to this post.
Also to note: you know your group! If a question doesn’t hit home with you or your group, skip it! I also don’t require everyone to answer every question, especially on the nights when we are a group of 10. However, I will pick on the quiet ones sometimes if I feel like they aren’t being heard or would benefit from discussing a particular question.
QUESTIONS FOR EVERY WEEK
There are a few questions I always ask in group. These Girl Wash Your Face guide questions are intentionally very open-ended. It is ok if there is no real response to these first questions. I like to ask these questions because it gives group members an opportunity to voice questions, concerns, deep thoughts, or anything that was weighing heavy on them after reading the chapter.
1. CAN SOMEONE SUMMARIZE THE CHAPTER FOR THE GROUP?
This is to catch up those members who didn’t actually read the chapter. It happens, and I like to do this to be gracious and inclusive.
2. DID ANYTHING JUMP OUT AT YOU? WHAT DID YOU THINK OF THE CHAPTER?
1. Do you have a story of when you felt called by God to do something?
2. Is there a call that you ever ignored? And What made you “say no”?
3. Do you believe that it is possible for God to ask you to do something?
1. Do you think you show your body respect when it comes to food and exercise?
2. Rachel suggests that you come up with a montra to help reshape your thinking. Did you come up with a montra?
3. What stands in the way of you making better decisions?
4. How can this group help keep you accountable?
5. Is there a tiny step you can take this week to create a positive habit?
1. If you are honest with yourself, how is your relationship with alcohol?
2. If you don’t have a problem with Alcohol, is there something else that you use to cope that is unhealthy?
3. What habits do you have in place that are healthy ways of relieving stress?
4. What causes you to lean on unhealthy stress relievers?
Examples: Bad day at work, long day with kids, difficult exam, illness, illness of others, etc.
1. On a scale of 1 – 10 how judgemental do you think you are of people that are “other”?
1 being accepting of others completely, 10 being “I only accept people who are like me”.
2. What do you think is the root of your judgement of others?
Childhood experience, bad experience with a group or person, etc.
3. When you look at the people you spend time with, is it diverse?
Diversity can be measured by: wealth, race, age, country/culture of origin, political opinion, etc.
4. Do you think it is valuable to look outside of what is familiar?
5. What holds you back from interacting with people that are “other”?
6. What are ways (other than travel) that you can expose yourself to different people?
Chapter 20: I Need a Hero
There are very few questions for this chapter on purpose. I think this chapter should be a reflection in the group on what action they need to take for themselves. I would encourage every person to answer these questions.
1. What achievement are you most proud of?
2. What do you need to just do, that you have been putting off out of fear?
Apply for that job, book that class, find a therapist, join a gym, leave a relationship, start a whole30, start that business, call that person, etc.
Book Wrap Up
1. What did you think of the book?
2. What inspired you the most?
