I have a friend who has over 4 kids and younger than I, about to be a grandmother for the second time. I encouraged her to be strong and keep praying for peace and understanding. What do you say when you have not experienced that? What suggestions do I give or should a hug just do it all? How should you really make a difference that stands out as friend to help her life and through her situation?

Yea sometimes just a hug or smile can create magic in the life of a person. Most times words needed be said just some body language and a touch can make a person happy. Try to motivate your friend. Keep on praying and ask your friend to pray. Life is a miracle and it changes every second. Every second brings happiness in life. Try to talk to your friend and be there for your friend. This will help your friend's life to be better.

Thank you so much for that advice. I truly appreciate that, I will also continue to pray and motivate her daily. I know her life is going to get better. I think I will buy her lunch. This should put a smile on her face.

It's Good To Be Be Supportive. You Could Suggest She Join Support Groups Online Or OffLine that Have to Do With Her Situation,

I also think it is good to support people in life and also to motivate them. I think it is good idea to buy lunch and to share coffee or tea and have a chat.

So what is it that she is having trouble with? How old are her kids? Is she single?

You can make a big difference by simply staying as her friend. Sometimes people forget how important attention is but I believe it is really the main reason why do a relationship keep on going. You can serve her advice and constant communication so that she will forget all her problems. Moreover, you should always support your friend in any challenge she is facing so that she will never feel alone.
