I stumbled across this idea on Pinterest and loved it! I instantly saw the endless possibilities. The gal that came up with this list, (check her out here) did so as a way to write something about herself to pass on to her posterity. She was going to spend the next 30 days answering each item on the list. Great idea, right? She also mentioned it might be fun to ask each other these questions on a date. I think it would be great to ask these questions in a group date as well.
My spin on this is to use these questions at our next Family Home Evening. I want to pick at least two questions from the list and see what kind of responses we get. Imagine the conversations those 30 items on the list could lead to! ( Granted, question three will be taken off the list for the sake of time and sanity) We may have to ask only a few each time we do this activity, but with older children, the answers could be quite entertaining and possibly give us a moment of understanding our family member a bit better than before. If nothing else, it will be interesting to hear everyone’s responses. The point is to get the family talking. Use the list on your next date night, or at the next family picnic....Or use the list next time you have friends over to get the conversation going! Give it a try!
