Birthday TwoThursday, February 12, the Why Didn’t You Warn Me? blog will turn two. It’s been such fun getting to know my readers and hopefully to provide you with ideas and solutions to your small group challenges.

To celebrate the day, I’m going to give away a book or two. Maybe more if I’m in a good mood. To enter, tell me about your biggest small group challenge. Past or present. Solved or pending. What challenges you as a leader or even as a member? Be sure to maintain confidentiality. On the 12th, I’ll choose one or more winners and send you a copy of “Why Didn’t You Warn Me? How to Deal with Challenging Group Members.”

    Our small group was very diverse age wise. We had a few talkers, and the rest rarely shared. So we took one of our kids fluffy stuffed animals, and began tossing it from one to another. We used it for the icebreakers, and at other times, we’d toss it to encourage someone other then our regular talkers to share their thoughts. Something about this little fluffy toy softened the group up, providing lots of laughs, fun memories, and helped to build better relationships.
