Funny to serious, shallow to deep, the 500 questions in this book will get teens laughing, thinking and talking about their emotions, beliefs, dreams, and values. Designed to open the door for conversation that will deepen relationships, these questions can be used within families, among friends, or with complete strangers, not just youth groups. Arranged in no particular order, they can be used as time-killers on road trips, icebreakers in small groups, crowd-mixers in large groups, or simply in one-on-one conversations. Sample Questions: What Would You Do . If you had the opportunity to ask your parents one question without feeling embarrassed? If you could do one more thing before going completely blind? If Instant Messaging ended? If you could come up with one way to serve your community this month? If you could write an eleventh commandment?
