When a friend is hurting, all you want to do is help. But what do you say when your best friend doesn’t eat, or her parents are splitting up, or you see the cutting scars on your friend’s arms? There’s just no script for this stuff.
That’s where this book comes in. It’s for concerned friends who know that the best way to help is stepping in with love and authentic support. Whether you know someone who is dealing with sexual abuse, drug addiction, or depression, How to Help Your Hurting Friend offers practical advice on how you can be a true friend by tapping into the wisdom of the Bible, the heart of Jesus, and the advice of counselors who know what they’re talking about.
Even if you’re not dealing with life-and-death issues right now, author Susie Shellenberger still has plenty of great advice on how to make and keep friends, how to be someone other people can trust, and how to let your faith shine through in everything you do.
Look, being a teen these days is tough. Everyone needs a true friend. Maybe that friend can be you.
