But I Don’t Know What to Say!

Sometimes, the more we say, the less we encourage–especially when someone is suffering a terrible grief. Sometimes, there is no right thing to say. But that doesn’t mean that we should not be present. Our suffering sisters need to know that they are not alone in their trouble, grief, or pain.

Who Cares for You?

Be sure you take the time to connect with a strong sister in Christ who will remind you of truth, pray with you for strength and wisdom, and help you watch for pitfalls of sin in your own life.

Hope For Loneliness

Although loneliness and being alone can go hand in hand, this isn’t necessarily always the case. Some of the time, being alone isn’t a negative thing unless it is causing the person to feel an inner emptiness.
