Leader's Tools and Resources

Leading Your Small Group

The Leader’s Guide and Answers are located in the back of the study.

    You will find that many of the lessons are compiled of questions and activities to help your group get to know one another better. The first question in each lesson refers to the book “It Is What It Is…But It Wasn’t A Tragedy” and was put into the study guide as an ice-breaker activity.

Feel free to do some research and add to the curriculum any art activities, poems, pictures, extra readings, or challenges for your group.


The Thought Questions, Challenge questions, and the activities at the end of each lesson are great ways to help you to understand one another, support one another in spiritual growth, and to help build relationships that can last a lifetime. In place of giving you answers for the Thought Questions and Challenge questions in the Leader's Guide, you are given suggested ideas to help you to direct the conversation as each person shares in your group.


Take prayer requests each week and ask your class to pray for all concerns throughout the week. Pray before each class begins. Ask for wisdom, clarity, and understanding for your group and for your leadership as you prepare to study God’s Word. To help your students grow in their confidence with praying you may want to ask them to volunteer and take turns praying out loud.


Sharing over a snack is a great way to build friendships so feel free to ask the members of your group to bring simple refreshments.


Below are some tools to aid you in leading your small group. Items created by Sunni Daiz Inspiration may be used with permission.
