Stories That Inspire Us / The Author Series, welcomed to today’s podcast, Thursday, May 11, 2023, Sherrie Dunlevy. Sherrie is a former NBC News Anchor, Inspirational Speaker and the Founder of the Graduating Grief Academy, an online support community, as well as host of the podcast: Graduating Grief. She is also the Author of the #1 Best Selling Book: How Can I Help? / Your Go-To Guide for Helping Loved Ones Through Life’s Difficulties.
How to support others in the simplest and kindest way possible when tragedy, death or so many other unexpected life events occurs is NEVER easy for anyone (especially for the person who has experienced the tragedy.) What do we say, how do we say it and as a family member or friend, how can we support our loved one (or friend) who has experienced the tragedy?
Sherrie’s book was written to help people know exactly what to say and do when the people they love and care about are hurting. A life lesson / guide to direct us to help those suffering through their distress of a traumatic life event.
Sherrie’s quest in writing her book took her several years. Through her personal tragedy, she found passion and purpose. As her story evolved it became evident that there wasn’t really a book that could guide you through or share a simple list of techniques to help and comfort others. Her book does just that!
Life can be difficult. We never know what someone else is going through. But when we do know the specifics of one’s story, having this guide as a useful and purposeful tool is a way to navigate through a stressful situation on how we fully respond in a way that is heartfelt, genuine and can be such a blessing during someone’s difficult times.
I read Sherrie’s book with a new lens on how I can personally acknowledge, encourage and be ever more present in my follow through in a much more meaningful way. I know you will too. It’s not a book you would think to buy but definitely the book you should buy to guide you through when tragedy strikes.
