Marget Iminhower commented about How to Write a Good Sympathy Card on July 9

I don’t know what to say to my great grandmother her second husband and the memorial is on Saturday. Honestly, I didn’t find this very helpful.

Cathy Miller commented about How to Write a Good Sympathy Card on June 20

It’s hard to write words of condolence especially if you do not know what to say first. But it is essential to send a message or card to let them know that you care and how the deceased person means to you. It is a great idea if you involve something personal like a fond memory you shared of the person who has died.

Tricia Johnson commented about Journey to Biblical Counseling: Paul Tautges Interviews David Powlison, Part 2 on January 28

It’s surprising to me that this is being presented as a rather new way of thinking. This has always been my approach; this is not a new idea. I have found, however, that this approach has not been popular among those with counseling degrees. Have we gone too far in formalizing this idea? God qualifies His counselors, hence even a child or a child-like adult, can accomplish this. No degree necessary. Redefinition by getting everyone to use the same dictionary is necessary, however.
