Helping those who are hurting can be an overwhelming task. Educating ourselves on issues is so important. Learn what to say and do, and what not to say and do. When we consider helping someone, it is vital to 'do no harm' with our well-intentioned words, scripture passages, and stories. We NEVER know the complete stories and experiences that other women have walked. To apply our faith, our beliefs, and our biases to their lives is a dangerous hurtful practice.
Learn to tell when a person needs professional help and have resources available to refer.
