Book Description:

Seeing someone you love hurting, and feeling like you can do nothing to help, is hard. We are so nervous about making their suffering worse that we are paralysed into doing nothing. James and Jennie Muldoon are familiar with suffering. They tell their story here, explain how they were supported and comforted by their brothers and sisters in Christ, and give ideas for where to start when we are helping those in pain.


James Muldoon lives in Reading with his wife, Jennie, and their three children. He studied Classics and then Theology and now serves as co–pastor of Carey Baptist Church.

Jennie Muldoon studied Theology and trained as an Occupational Therapist. She and her husband, James, have three children, all of whom will probably be on the stage one day.


In an easy style, and with honesty and tears, James and Jennie tell us their story of suffering. We learn that the Lord leads us through situations which are too much for us to bear, but are not too much for Him to carry us through. With an open Bible, and with a wisdom born of their own experience, they then move on to give us a host of practical suggestions about helping the suffering.  It is all challenging and wonderful.
Stuart Olyott, Pastoral Director, Evangelical Movement of Wales

… pastorally sensitive and biblically faithful. When we suffer we need truth, compassion and hope. This book will help you to find these things in Jesus.
Paul Mallard, Author of Invest Your Suffering & Pastor, Widcombe Baptist Church, Bath, UK

This book challenges us to be ‘strong and courageous’ when supporting the suffering. I saw immediate fruit from the Muldoon’s teaching to be more intentional, to acknowledge and so validate the struggles of others, and to unapologetically give them Christ! A must read!
--Natalie Brand, Author and Tutor for Women, Union School of Theology, Wales

What a helpful and inspiring book! In just two hours of reading, Jennie and James let you in on the painful road they have had to travel. They encourage you to see the faithfulness of God and to be a better friend to those who are suffering.
Will Stileman, Vicar, St Mary’s, Maidenhead, UK
