  1. You know what’s funny, Molly? This is something that someone actually told me to say! I always felt like I was saying the right thing because this grief counseling session said that no, you can’t imagine what someone else is feeling and you shouldn’t pretend like you do. Being sensitive when someone is grieving can be so difficult. I just hope they know that my heart is to bring comfort! Is Molly Piper John Piper’s daughter-in-law? I didn’t have time to read more of her blog.

    • I know, I have always heard that it is the right thing to say. It is so hard to know what the right thing is. I just liked her perspective of actually imagining someone’s grief to help you go a step more beyond trite comments. This is John Piper’s daughter in law. Lots of nice insight. How are you doing?
