Item description for What to Say: 52 Positive Ways to Show Christian Sympathy to Those Who Grieve by Carol Fredericks Ebeling...
Overview When death intrudes, we are often at a loss for words. We stammer and stumble, wanting to say and do something to comfort the bereaved. Sometimes we say the wrong thing, even thought we mean well. Expressions like "She's in a better place" do little help. We bring over a tuna noodle casserole when they already have six in the freezer. Books are available on what not to say to a grieving person. These can help us to avoid making awkward or inappropriate comments. Here at last is a book on how to make it better. This book is full of positive things you can say to and do for that special person you know who is really hurting--and do it in a distinctively Christian manner.
