The Courage to Care:
Being Fully Present With The Dying
Many of us today have little or no direct experience with death and dying. Uncertain how to meet someone’s needs and ease their journey, as well as harboring unsettling imaginings about death itself, we may hesitate to join them.
With a collection of true stories, trusted suggestions and timeless advice,
Linda Bryce prepares you to be there at bedside and experience the wonder and mystery of dying and of death itself.
Author Linda Bryce shares advice, resources and song in her award-winning book, The Courage to Care: Being Fully Present with the Dying, as well as her newly released children's book, Old Oak and Little Pumpkin, to comfort and reassure all little pumpkins they are never alone when they look around and see their Old Oaks standing by them.
Fun and funny Geeky Grandma with an Encouraging Nudge podcast interviewed me! I read from my new children's book, Old Oak and Little Pumpkin, and talked about bedside singing and my last year's award-winning book, The Courage to Care: Being Fully Present with the Dying. Jill the host is a fun and authentic spirit encouraging women to be their highest and best.
