    This amazing book by Sarah Beckman opens so many opportunities to help those around us who are hurting. While reading "Alongside", I kept saying "I could do that" or "why didn't I think of that" or "wow, I wish someone would have done that for me". Every chapter is filled with practical, loving advice for walking with someone in crisis, whether a close friend or someone you have just met. First, Sarah reminds the reader that it's not about them. (oh how true this is) Then she walks step by step through every possible scenario. (truly I couldn't think of anything she didn't cover) Sarah guides the reader in ways to put aside their own feelings and focus on the one who needs help. From early chapters on "Listening" and "thinking outside the box" to the final chapter on dealing with "terminal illness", Alongside is a book that answers so many of the "how can I help" questions we come up against when helping those we love deal with pain that comes with living life. I can't say enough good things about this book. Every ministry leader needs this book, especially those who minister to the hurting in their Church family. Excellent book.

    The Guide EVERYONE Should Read

    This week's book is one that I wish no one would ever need, but I can guarantee everyone will. My guess is that probably - even right this very minute - you have someone in your life who is facing some sort of crisis. An illness, the death of a loved one, a divorce, an injury - crises are everywhere, and they're hard.

    If by some miracle, you don't have a friend or family member in a crisis time right now, it probably won't be long until you will (unfortunately) and when that time comes, you'll want to be equipped to be the best helper you can, through your actions, words, and prayers.

    That is exactly where Sarah Beckman's debut book, Alongside, comes in. Sarah has been, as she puts it, "on both sides of the bed." Having been through bed rest with one of her pregnancies and four subsequent back surgeries while parenting her littles, she knows firsthand what it's like to depend on others for everyday tasks. And having walked with her best friend, her neighbor, and her brother-in-law while they lived their final days with cancer, she knows firsthand what it's like to be the person looking in, wanting to help in ways that are actually helpful.

    From those experiences, and drawing from the rich wisdom of others in similar situations, Sarah wrote Alongside. It's a magnificent and practical guide with lists of ideas for how you might help those in a time of crisis. She teaches her readers how to discover what relationship tier they have with the person in need and tailor their help accordingly. She offers wisdom on what to say and what not to say, tangible needs to meet, and how to pray effectively, rather than throwing out the cliche-sounding "I'll pray for you," that's so often followed by forgetting to actually pray.

    Though the lists are thorough, this is much more than just a book of lists. The stories are vulnerable, from Sarah's own experiences and those of trusted friends who have bravely shared their experiences. You'll see specific examples of good intentions gone bad along with out-of-the-box ideas that made a great impact!

    I absolutely recommend this book for every home library, but also every church library and office bookshelf. It is a timeless resource, and I'm grateful Sarah worked so hard to offer a thorough guidebook!
