Reviews - What do customers think about The Art of Helping: What to Say and Do When Someone Is Hurting?
Helping you help others Apr 12, 2008
This is a wonderful book that puts hand and feet to people's caring, sympathy and empathy toward those who are hurting. So helpful in many instances - deaths, divorce, miscarriage, loss of job; this job will tell you practical ways to help, what is helpful to say and do - and what is not. A must read!
loss for words Apr 9, 2008
Easy to read advice for occasions when one is at a loss for words and how to be truly helpful.
Art of Helping Jan 4, 2007
Not knowing what to say or not to say at the right or wrong time is very vital. This book is more of a reference book to minister to others in their time of need. It is especially great if you are talking to others in need on the phone because you can actually read it in your own words what they suggest you say without becoming tongue-tied. It is a great book and that is why I purchased 10 of them for my Bible Study group and they too, all love the help they now have at their fingertips.
Every church staff member should have this on their desk Dec 15, 2006
This is a must-have book for everyone, but especially every church library. It's a goldmine of information and I include in every chronic illness ministry start up kit because it's so valuable. It's perfect for all of us who want to help but don't know how. Now we know how... we just need to do it!
It's broken down into sections, so is great for a quick reference for any situation. It also includes some of the lesser-talked about losses in life, such as the loss of a pet, or the loss of an unborn child.
I was blessed to have the opportunity to contribute to the section on chronic illness a great deal, but still find myself flipping to that chapter for some fresh ideas when my reaching-out ideas have run dry.
When the Right Words Won't Come.... Jul 27, 2006
Often in a difficult situation such as divorce or infertility or with elderly parents or any type of loss, the right words don't seem to be there. You are trying to write a brief note and have nothing to say. What do you do? You want to reach out to this friend or neighbor or family member but you are stuck.
Here's the perfect reference tool. Get this book and have it on your shelf for these types of situations. Everyone needs a copy of Lauren Briggs' book. She will help you know what to do--and what not to do in these key situations of life.
