We all know the feeling when the conversation is dwindling at a party or gathering. That awkward silence and sudden ‘talk about the weather.’ These Christian printable conversation cards are a perfect way to continue the conversation during those moments when the conversation starts to decline.
They are specifically curated from a Christian perspective.
There are over 30 printable conversation cards to engage others in conversation. My favorite one is “Describe yourself in two words. Now use two words to describe how God sees you.” The conversation starters are not all exclusively faith-based, others include simple thought-provoking questions like, “If you could get rid of one social media platform, which would it be?”
How to Use Conversation Starters
The printable conversation cards can be used in a variety of settings including holidays, family gatherings, weekly dinners, or small groups. Use your imagination!
These conversation starters are a perfect way to get to know your guests, plus you won’t ever have to fear the dreaded ‘hows the weather’ drudge in conversation. Having a way to create a conversation is a great way to show your guests hospitality.
How to use them?
Print them out, cut the, place them in a small bag or box, and set them out on the table! It’s that simple. Once you have guests invite them to take a card, read it, answer it, and go around the table and let everyone else answer the prompt as well.
You can also just let one person answer the question and then move on to a new card and a new person. It’s really up to you!
Tips with Conversation Cards?
- Encourage your guests to ask follow-up questions. This is best shown if you model it first.
- Remember, this is not a competition, have fun!
- You can use these as a group or pair them off into individual groups.
- If you pair off make sure to not pair off two introverts together. Mix up the introverts and extroverts!
If you are looking for a more detailed game, you could grab ‘Would ya’ Rather‘ which also has engaging questions for a guest event.

Simply download the printable conversation cards, cut them out, and start using them. I laminated mine (not pictured) by using my Amazon Basics laminator (only $33!).
