Counseling Others
Annette Nay, Ph.D.

If you think that you may have found yourself in a place where you need to give counsel to others (i.e., father to son, husband to wife, supervisor to supervisee, Bishop to ward member), please stop and think...

  1. Is the person aware of the problem that you want to counsel them on? Are you able to give them any more information than they already have? If the answer is "No," leave it alone, unless moved upon by the Holy Ghost. Make sure it is the Holy Ghost - Ask the Lord.
  2. If what you are about to say could possibly hurt the individual's feelings, stop and pray for the Lord to give you the right words that will be acceptable to that person. Ask the Lord for His spirit to be with you when you talk to the person to help the person to accept the Lord's words.
  3. Then humbly tell the person what the Lord has instructed you to do so.

The Lord is a master at finesse. Use Him!
