- What's a recent happy memory you have of your dad?
(e.g. a hug, playing bball, a phone call, driving you to practice)
- (for the guys) When, God willing, you become a dad yourself,
what would you like to do the same as your dad? What would you do differently?
- (for the girls) What sort of guys do you hang out with?
What are the top qualities you find attractive in guys?
How do they compare to the standard set in Genesis 2:15?
