Call me if you need anything. . ." Most of us have said this to someone with a chronic illness because we didn't know what else to say. We care, but how do we show it? Does a casserole really encourage someone? Why don't people ever call and tell us what they really need? If you've ever wanted to help but didn't know how, this book provides 505 ways to encourage someone who is hurting, including what to say, not say, what to write in a card, and how to reach out to the entire family.
Beyond Casseroles provides refreshingly creative and approachable outreach ideas that go beyond lasagna while also giving a friend the ability to feel independent, respected, and hopeful.
