To complement your discussion of the introductory question, ask women to imagine they are the character in the following clip. In the movie Morning Glory, Rachel McAdams portrays a woman who has taken over the role of executive producer for a struggling morning talk show. This clip shows her at her first meeting on her first day in the new job. Play the clip up to the point at which she says, “I’m sorry, I can’t hear what you’re saying.”
Pause the video, and ask, “As a mom, wife, and/or professional, can you relate to days like this? How do you handle it?” Allow for discussion, then play the rest of the clip. Continue with the lesson by directing group members to the point of the lesson on page 10 of the Personal Study Guide.
We want to hear from you! How are you introducing the topic of dealing with trials with the women in your class or small group?
