Ice Breaker – Your Heart Sings

ICE BREAKER Your Heart Sings

Most weeks on The Stretched Blog, I ask an ice breaker question on Fridays. The questions are designed to help us get to know each other here in The Stretched Community. I’ll provide my answer to the question here in the post, and then you can leave your response in the comments. While you’re in the comments section, see how others answered the ice breaker question.

(I’m always looking for Ice Breaker question ideas.  If you have an idea, send me an email at  If I use your question, I’ll give you credit and share your links.)

Question:  What makes your heart sing?

My Answer:  My heart sings when I see my kids doing what they love.  My heart sings when I watch my daughter run.  My heart sings when I see my son tickling the ivory keys of our piano.  My heart sings when I help someone at work figure something out for the first time.  My heart sings when my customers can’t say enough about my team members.  My heart sings when I see people connecting to each other.  My heart sings when I work hard and see the fruits of my labor.  My heart sings when I spend uninterrupted time with my wife.  My heart sings when I see the smiles of widows and orphans in the village of Xenacoj who are simply thankful for another day.  My heart sings when I finish a workout knowing the hard work will pay off.  My heart sings when I see an item scratched off my to do list.  My heart sings when I reach a big goal.  My heart sings when I go camping with my long-time friends.  My heart sings when a piece of truth connects deeply with me in a brand new way.  My heart sings when I put aside the busy distractions of life long enough to see and feel the hand of God touching my life.  That’s what makes my heart sing.
