What Grieving People Wish You Knew about what really helps (and what really hurts) by Nancy Guthrie; 2016; $15.99; 180 pages; Crossway, Wheaton, IL; 978-1-4335-5235-9; checked out from Multnomah County Library, Central; 2/9/17-2/18/17

Why did I read this? I often don’t know what to say to someone who is grieving and am often silent, because I don’t want to say something that might hurt someone.

Nancy and her husband, David lost two children very young and have helping grieving people ever since.  She has compiled the things that have been hurtful and the things that have been helpful in their lives and the lives of others.  It was very insightful and I learned a lot.
