Sometimes I just don't know what to do or say. I'm socially awkward. Especially around death or around people that are grieving. It is something that I'm working on, as I want to be a blessing to those around me.
As usual, Lorrie Flem, helps me out.
As usual, Lorrie doesn't just give us vague notions of how to be a blessing. This book is FULL of ideas to help us help others during their time of deepest need. She gives us the words to write, the words to say, the actions to take.
Since food can be such a blessing at this time, some of Lorrie's focus (but not ALL) is on how to take food, what food to take, AND she includes recipes for several easy to serve items that should be universal hits.
The ideas in this book are very useful in a variety of other situations as well; new baby, sick family member, etc. I loved the ideas for care packages that can be made for friends that are going to the hospital to help family members or for treatments themselves.
Lorrie ends this book with scripture to reinforce our desires to bless others. I just can't say enough good things about this resource. I feel more confident in my ability to help others now :)
This book is available now at Eternal Encouragement for $3.50, or as a Kindle download from Amazon for $3.99. However, May 1-3 it will be available from Amazon for $0.99! So be patient and get it then :) And don't forget that you don't have to actually have a kindle to read kindle books (I have a kindle yet still read mostly from my Droid phone). If you need more information about that, you can read HERE.
Need more encouragement or know someone else who does? You can get Lorrie's Eternal Encouragement magazine for free!!!!!
