Book Review: Healing Hearts with Helping Hands by Lorrie Flem
I love the title of this book. . .Healing Hearts with Helping Hands. When people we care about are going through the loss of a loved one, a serious illness or another life-altering challenge, it is hard to know how to respond. We care and we want to help but what do we do? We want to say something to encourage and show that we care but what do we say? Lorrie Flem offers good advice and ways to help in this little gem of a book.
This book offers actual words you can say or adapt as you minister to someone who is in a difficult place. Lorrie shares from her own experiences as she lost loved ones as well as times she cared for others in that situation. She also offers unique ideas on what to do to help, even if you are a busy mom yourself. I think she is "right on" when she suggests you offers specific ways that you can help the person instead of just saying, "Please call me if you need me" because most of the time people won't call and don't want to impose on others. Even if it is a situation where you want to send a card, Lorrie helps you know what to say and not to say in the card.
She also offers great advice on what to take for meals, along with recipes. As someone who has food allergies I agree that it is good to ask, if possible, what not to take. The recipes all looked great although I did not try one out yet. I think this book would be a great help to ANYONE.
