Finish What You...

“Finish What You...” is episode #663 of the Adventures in Odyssey audio series. It was written by Tim Hodge and Paul McCusker, and originally aired on May 1, 2010.


Doors are opening up for Olivia Parker – too many doors, actually! After signing up for guitar lessons with Eugene, she also agrees to star in Connie’s play.


Olivia Parker has a problem of over committing. When she commits to guitar lessons with Eugene and Connie's play about Noah, she finds out that even though these things may be fun, you can't do anything that comes your way.

Later she finds out that her commitment to play her grandma to play her favorite song at her party and the Noah play will be on the same day at the same time. Connie is very disappointed and gives away her part as Mrs. Noah. So she spends all night practicing her guitar. Olivia was very tired after all that practicing but with the help of Eugene, she plays the song for her grandmother.

This plot section is too short and should be expanded. »

Discussion Questions

  1. Why did Connie have to drop Olivia from the play?
  2. Have you ever tried something, only to find out it was harder than it seemed?
  3. How should Olivia keep from getting over-committed in the future?
