Encouraging Words, part 1

What encourages those who are grieving?

Some of the most encouraging words we received as we have faced the unexpected home going of my mother.

I have been praying for you regularly.
I’ve been praying that the Lord comfort and sustain you.

Can I help you with meals?
Can I do grocery shopping for you?
Can I help you with preparing anything for the memorial?

How can I serve you?

Your mother was so gracious in caring and snuggling with our kids in the nursery.
Your mother had such a positive attitude and influence in our ministry.
Your mother was so real.

Those are all things friends of ours have said and done–thank you!

I love to study the Bible and I love to engage with others in learning. I had been privileged to do this on a regular basis through church ministry and through part-time teaching at a local Bible colleges. Helping individuals learn to feed themselves through their own study of God’s Word is joy-giving to me. Influencing groups to do life and church from a biblically grounded, theologically faithful perspective is my passion.
