Reviews - What do customers think about How to Help a Grieving Friend: A Candid Guide for Those Who Care (Whitson, Stephanie Grace)?

Small book on a big topic!  Aug 14, 2008
This is a brief book with very helpful advise on what not to say and do and what TO say and do when you want to support someone who is grieving. While it is written from the point of view of a spouse's illness and death, the advise is basic enough to use in any grief situation. I am still grieving over my mother and read this from the point of view of a grieving daughter, and much still applies. I wish I would have had this book a few years ago when several friends died. It is so difficult to know what to say and do during such difficult emotion-filled times. This book helps with it's matter-of-fact, realistic, simple advise.

A brief, simple how-to guide for readers of all ages and all walks of life. "Invite me to sit with you / Church is one of the hardest places to be. / Sitting alone in that pew is devastating. / All the expressions of care are overwhelming. / Shelter me. / Let me hide out next to you."
A valuable tool in ministering to the grieving!!!  May 5, 2005
Ms. Whitson provides windows into her broken heart and provides many valuable insights and tools in being able to help the hurting in the on going time of grief. I read it out loud to my husband on a weekend trip and we both felt it was an excellent resource.
Wonderful resource  Mar 22, 2005
This book is a wonderful resource for those who struggle with how to respond to a friend in the midst of grieving. A look into the heart of the author as she went through several major losses offers insight into how it feels to be on the receiving end of grief, then the book goes a step further, offering practical and specific things to do (or not do) to help.
