How to Support those who are Grieving (Ep 013) // Rachel Gainer of Rachel Rebuilt

A podcast with specific ideas of what to say and do for those who are grieving

Many of us know friends and family members who have lost precious loved ones.  During those heartbreaking times, it’s so hard to know what to say and do to show our love and support.

On today’s podcast, we hear from a mother who has been there and has so much wisdom to share.  Several years ago, Rachel Gainer lost her two-month-old daughter, Daphne, and was engulfed in sorrow.  She talks about her journey to “rebuilding” her sense of self after Daphne’s death, and she shares invaluable insight into what it’s like to grieve and what we can do to serve those around us who are hurting.

Listen in as she teaches us how to…

 

1) Reach out to the grieving family, no matter how long it has been.

2) Offer a specific service or gift based on your talents and interests.

3) Speak with sensitivity.

 

This is an episode that everyone should listen to–because, at some point, we will all inevitably need to support someone whom we love who is grieving.  You won’t want to miss Rachel’s ideas for specific, heartfelt gifts we can send and meaningful words we can say.  You’ll also want to hear all about her angel baby, Daphne.
