  1. The title Into the Deep was also the theme of the book. In what ways did the characters dive deep?

  2. Bree’s past hurts have often kept her from believing anyone could love her with an unconditional love. Have you ever felt that way? Did it make it hard to accept the fact that God loves you that way?

  3. Marika and her environmental believed right was on their side and the end justified the means in some of their actions. Have you ever felt so strongly about something you were willing to fudge the means you used to get your own way? Was it worth it in the end?

  4. Denise’s first reaction on hearing about her husband’s death was denial. Why do you think that’s our first response even when the news comes from a trustworthy source?

  5. In what ways was Samson like God in the way he loved Davy?

  6. Kade wouldn’t even talk to Bree when he thought she preferred Nick to him. Have you ever failed to fight for something you wanted because you were afraid of rejection or failure? Was it the right or the wrong thing to do?

  7. Cassie was driven to find a cure for her father. So much so that she blocked out other important things in her life. Do you find it hard to maintain balance in your life? What kinds of things can take God’s place of being first in our lives?

  8. Salome and Cassie were roommates and friends but only shared surface things. Why would Cassie shield herself? What does it take for you to fully open up to friends?

  9. Jonelle was torn over her husband’s actions. Was she right in disobeying him when she did?

  10. Lauri was so certain she wanted Naomi to take her baby, she wouldn’t consider any other option. God had other ideas. Has there been a time you were determined you knew what was best without consulting God? How did that turn out?

  11. Bree tried hard to keep her priorities right, but sometimes she let Davy’s desires determine her actions. When is it right to put your children’s needs ahead of your own? Always? Never? What determines the right course of action?

  12. Naomi was fearful of Donovan’s past life. Two families are sometimes hard to blend. How would you have handled Emily’s hostility?

  13. Cruelty to animals is a terrible thing. Some people think they aren’t deserving of common care and attention. But if we care for our pets, shouldn’t we care at least as much about other people? We sometimes find it easy to turn our eyes away from the suffering of others in our lives. Have you ever felt God’s prompting to make a difference in someone’s life and turned away?

  14. Hilary was sometimes hard to love because of what seemed to be her overwhelming self-assurance. Is there someone in your life you have to try hard to love? How do you overcome that difficulty?

  15. The villain had a score to settle and chose murder. How could he have gotten rid of the bitterness that ruined his life? Have you ever harbored an unforgiving spirit in your heart?
