Icebreaker: Shop Owner
Every woman has some kind of dream tucked away in her heart. This icebreaker activity will create a lot of interesting interaction among the women in your ministry by asking a simple question about their dreams and ambitions. You will learn more about your women, and they might just learn something new about themselves!
Objective: Getting to know each other by sharing interests, hobbies and what motivates us
Materials Needed: none!
Procedure: Pose this simple question to your group: If you could own any kind of store anywhere in the the world, what kind of store would it be, and where would it be located? Allow a couple of minutes for group members to gather their thoughts. Then it's sharing time! Each person should share their response.
The fun of this activity is in discovering the surprising answers you will receive. You will gain great insight into what makes the women in your group tick by encouraging them to dream out loud.

WM Note: This could be a great way to start off a study on Joseph, the dreamer. Or it could be used to illustrate a number of spiritual truths: our desires vs. God's, adventure, setting goals, etc.
