Publisher's Summary

When someone we love is grieving, we want to be there. But it's easy to feel paralyzed, worried that we might say or do the wrong thing.
Nancy Guthrie has personal experience dealing with pain and knows what words of encouragement are helpful and what words are harmful. Drawing from her own life experiences - including the loss of two young children - Guthrie has written this helpful resource for Christians who want to be better friends to those who are suffering. Practical and down-to-earth, this book includes examples and helpful tips from real grieving people who have been helped (and hurt) by friends who meant well, equipping listeners to come alongside and comfort loved ones who are hurting.

Good advice

I listened to this book just before beginning to lead a grief and loss Bible study. I felt it important to hear a few “does and don’ts” for how people think about what others say to them after a loss. Having experienced my own losses, some of the lessons learned were familiar while others were not.
I appreciated hearing the stories of others throughout the book. There was an array if losses... parents, children, spouses ... that enabled me to feel a little more comfortable in the group I was about to lead.
Like all self help books, I didn’t necessarily agree with everything that was said, I will take the ones I need going forward.
The narrator of this book did a good job as she moved from author to others speaking.

Rejoice and Grieve

With a new relationship in hands, my beautiful bride to be has lost her mother. This is something I’m not familiar with or can say can relate too. I started this books in hopes of doing more of the right things instead of the wrong. I have repented and been given an understanding by reading and practicing what this book teaches. I would recommend to anyone who is genuinely seeking to be their for someone during their time of grief.
