17.0 What’s the Best Thing to Say to Someone Who is Grieving?


SHOW NOTES – What’s the Best Thing to Say to Someone Who is Grieving? 

Other people play a crucial role in your healing – either as a help or a hindrance. As a society, we don’t talk about grief and who wants to really – until it touches your life. So, when you are going through the hardest moments, those around you don’t exactly know what to say or do unless they have been there. Because of this, things are said that can come across as hurtful.

In this week’s podcast, we’ll talk about what not to say to someone who is grieving but more importantly, what to say and how to help a colleague, friend or family member as they walk through this thing called grief.

Though the focus is on those around you – I’ll also share the best way for you to handle those platitudes and unwelcomed comments.

Verse –  Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep.  Romans 12:15.

Song –  There Was Jesus.  Zach Williams, Dolly Parton
