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 readers to come alongside and comfort loved ones who are hurting.

Nancy Guthrie

Those who have watched Nancy and David Guthrie walk through the loss of two infant children, and the millions who have read their story worldwide in TIME Magazine and USA Today, have wondered at their ability to emerge from such sorrow with joy for life and passion for God. In reality, this deep place of pain caused Nancy to dig into the scriptures like she never had before, looking for answers to her questions and a deeper relationship to God.

She offered many of the lessons she learned from this sorrowful experience in her 2002 book, Holding On to Hope: A Pathway of Suffering to the Heart of God (Tyndale House Publishers) which has helped thousands of people pursue God in the midst of their suffering. She regularly hears from readers book from all around the world who have been touched by the as the book as it has been translated into numerous languages including Spanish, Portuguese, German, Danish, Norwegian, Korean and Chinese.

Nancy has also written The One Year Book of Hope (also Tyndale), a daily devotional for people who are hurting or grieving, When Your Family's Lost a Loved One (with her husband, David), Hoping for Something Better (a study of the book of Hebrews) and Hearing Jesus Speak Into Your Sorrow.

The Guthries have seen God continue to use their loss to minister to other people going through loss in a variety of ways, including serving as co-hosts for a new production of the GriefShare video series. GriefShare is a 13-week video curriculum series that is used to facilitate weekly grief groups in more than 6,000 churches nationwide

A must read
5 stars By Rory, Jul 19 2017
As a western culture we don't cope well with grief. We try to avoid it, and feel awkward when someone is going through loss because we don't know what to do or say. This book is a fantastic way to learn how you can helpfully and practically enter into another's suffering of loss. The big message is that the main thing you should do for someone grieving is just show up. Be there for them. Not in an overbearing way but as much or little as they need from you. It's fairly straightforward but not always easy and this book goes a long way in giving you the right direction.
