Effective Support For Someone Who Is Grieving

[1]Often times we don’t know what to say or do when faced with someone in our lives in the throes of grief.  We are afraid of putting our foot in our mouth or asking the wrong thing.  The good news is we don’t really have to say anything at all.  We just have to listen.  Being an effective listener to someone who is grieving can be one of the greatest gifts we can give.

But what does being a good listener really look like?  Well, it’s fairly simple and only requires a little bit of extra effort on your part.

Our thanks to guest author Emily Clark for sharing her story here with us.  You can read more of Emily’s journey through young widowhood on her blog [2].
