A conversation about the relationships that matter most.
Instructions for free, 4-part video series:
1. Watch short video before gathering with your small group or book club.
2. Use questions at end of each video or below as discussion guide.
(If watching videos alone, reflect on the questions afterward to help think more deeply about your most important relationships.)
PART 1: WOMEN AND COFFEE
Join Roger for good coffee and good relationship advice about what women really, actually want. Hint: You can’t rush it, and it’s simpler than you think.
Q: What is something your spouse or significant other does that drives you crazy?
Q: What is the most romantic memory you have with your spouse or significant other?
Q: What are three things you can do to kindle (or re-kindle) that romance?
PART 2: FATHERS AND FIXING
Roger finds relationship advice in an old truck that reminds him of his dad, God, and what men forget to do when something’s broken.
Q: In what ways are you similar to your father and which ways are you different??
Q: Is there an admirable trait about your father that you feel like you don’t live up to? How have you processed that?
Q: Is there anything you wished were different in your relationship with your father? If your father is no longer around, is there anything about your relationship with him that you need to let go?
PART 3: KIDS AND TIME
Roger drops by a local skate park built by a hero to figure out what it takes to become a man any kid will look up to.
Q: What is your best parent or mentor fail moment? (Or, if you don’t have any kids in your life, what’s the best one you’ve seen?)
Q: Have you been able to “put in the time” with the kid relationships in your life (kids, nieces, nephews, students, or those you mentor)? If not, what keeps you from that?
Q: What is something cool you could do with the kid(s) in your life in the next few weeks?
PART 4: FRIENDS AND FIRES
Roger finds a local fishing hole, gets brutally honest about why women love small groups, and remembers the campfire that found him a friend.
Q: Has your spouse or significant other ever tried to set you up with a new friend? How’d that go?
Q: Do you have a friend like Chuck in your life? Someone who is reliably there for you but also able to call you out in different areas of your life?
Q: Have you fallen into the societal trap of defining yourself by what you do? Who are the relationships in your life that best define who you are, and how are you doing with those relationships?
