Discussion Questions

Emily's Chance the Callahans of Texas, Book Two

1. Before Chance met Emily, he had dated a lot of different women, but none never more than twice. Do you think he should have taken more time with some of them to see if their relationship would deepen into love?

2. Chance fell in love with Emily the first time he saw her. Do you believe in love at first sight? Do you think God orchestrated their meeting?

3. What do you think of Chance's reaction when he learned that Emily had slept with her boyfriend before she became a Christian?

4. Emily felt driven to climb to the top of the ladder in her chosen profession, partly because of her personality and partly because her parents demanded it. How big a role should parents' expectations play in their child's career?

5. Emily was a city-girl through and through until she met Chance, the Callahans, and the people of Callahan Crossing. How hard do you think it would be to make the switch from city to small town, or vice versa?

6. What should Emily have done when she found the box with the mementos of Aidan's and Margaret's relationship?

7. Emily pushed toward her career goal, certain that it was the path God wanted her on. When we're confident that God has opened doors for us, is it wise to step back now and then and seek confirmation that we're still doing what He wants? Has God ever made it clear to you that you should do something different?

8. Chance decided that he was being arrogant to insist on living in Callahan Crossing after they were married and forcing Emily to give up her career dreams. Was he right?

9. If she had chosen to take the job at the Dallas museum, do you think Chance could have been happy if he moved away from his family? Have you had to deal with a similar situation?
