Group Discussion or Personal Journal Questions:

  1. In the first episode segment, Dr. Neil T. Anderson discussed the imminence and potency of those things that cause fear. Consider something that regularly causes you anxiety. How imminent is that threat? How potent?
  2. Can you detect the lie fueling that fear? If not, I encourage you to take some time to pray and journal on this. If so, what is the lie?
  3. What is one truth Scripture provides that counters that lie?
  4. Consider Cathy Loerzel’s discussion on how we tend to store trauma in our bodies. Why is this important to recognize?
  5. According to Cathy, how can a dysregulated body affect our relationships and those we love?
  6. When discussing our “stored” traumas, Dr. Allender encourages us to tend to our stories with wisdom and kindness. What might that look like in your life?
  7. How does our trust in God and His desire to heal us give us the courage to begin to unpack our stories?
  8. Why is it important to have an emergency verse?
  9. What verse can you write on notecards, in your phone, regularly recite, and memorize to serve as your emergency verse to reflect upon the next time anxiety unexpectedly hits?
