- Would it be fun to rewind time in real life? If that were possible, name several things—good or bad—that could happen as a result. Why do you think our loving, wise God designed time the way He did?
- When someone you know is sad, do you have a surefire way to make them feel better? What did you think of Camilla's secret weapon? Would that have cheered you up? Why or why not?
- Discuss some of the missteps Camilla kept making that upset Maisey [being impatient, pushy, mean, etc.]. How might Camilla have been more sensitive to the people around her, or chosen her words differently?
- How do you think Camilla felt when Maisey (and Noah) rejected her offer to pray? When that simple prayer finally happened, how were the feelings shared by Maisey and George similar to the peace Paul described in Philippians 4:6-7?
- When have you done something with the best intentions, only to have the moment turn sour? What did you learn from that experience?
- In Exodus 4:10-16, God chose Moses to address Pharaoh, even though he wasn't the most confident speaker. Describe a time when you felt unprepared or didn't know what to say, only to be surprised to see God use you to make a difference in someone's day.
- George's memory was affected by Alzheimer's disease, which impacts many families. Is yours one of them? If so, how were you able to relate to what Maisey was going through?
- Share a recent situation when you wished you could've had a do-over. What happened? Is there still time to be a blessing to that person simply by being yourself?
- If you are a Christian, you received a huge do-over when you asked Jesus into your heart (John 3:16). How have you used that second chance to live for Him? Is it comforting to know that God doesn't expect you to be perfect or fix everyone's problems?
- Is there a hymn or praise chorus that is particularly meaningful to you? If so, explain what makes it special.
