Don’t Sing Songs to a Heavy Heart: How to Relate to Those Who Are Suffering

The words or actions we use in our attempts to help hurting people may unintentionally add to their burdens instead of easing their pain. This book overflows with practical examples and specific suggestions about what to say or do and what not to say or do. It will touch your heart, expand your thinking, and guide you in bringing Christ’s loving care to hurting people when they need it most.
