- Which of the badges mentioned in this episode would be the most fun to work on, and why? Which do you think would be the most difficult?
- How did people support Olivia and Zoe as they set out to earn their badges? Who supports you when you try new things?
- We all make mistakes and fall short sometimes. How can Philippians 3:13-14 and 2 Corinthians 12:9-10 encourage a person who feels like a failure?
- Why is it unhealthy to compare ourselves with others the way Olivia measured her worth against the Marcys? Read Galatians 6:4-5 and James 3:16.
- How did Whit respond in a godly way to the cake-decorating fiasco? How do you think other characters around Odyssey—from Bart Rathbone to Penny Bassett—might have reacted had the girls messed up their special anniversary cake?
- What was your reaction when Olivia first suggested that the Marcys had sabotaged them? Have you ever blamed someone else for causing a problem, only to discover it was actually your fault? What should we do when that happens?
- Do you think it was hard for Buck to forgive the girls for being irresponsible on the boat? What about being careless with Sparky? When have you had a difficult time forgiving someone?
- Talk about Whit's statement, "Accomplishments are things you do. Who you are is a child of God. You're loved, forgiven and enjoyed." Read Isaiah 62:5 and Zephaniah 3:17 to see what the Bible says about God "enjoying" His people.
- Although no earthly trophy can compare with being God's child (1 John 3:1-2, Romans 8:12-17), there's nothing wrong with having goals and working hard to achieve them. What special thing have you accomplished? What goals are you striving toward now?
