While I work with words every day in my career in publishing, at times I struggle to find the right words for the right time and place. Liz Duckworth has served every reader with this slim volume: A PERFECT WORD FOR EVERY OCCASION.

Duckworth covers ten important areas and in each case gives the reader Guidelines for Finding the Right Words, Prompts to Help You Begin, Words to Make Your Own, What Others Say: Quotes Worth Sharing and Scripture Passages to Read or Quote. Also each chapter includes a fictional character called Aunt Me-me with specific insights about what NOT to say.
