About the Book:

In When Mommy is in Heaven, we follow a young boy named Micah who has been given an invitation to a Mother’s Day Tea Party at his school to honor mothers and grandmothers of the students. With much excitement, he gives the invitation to his grandmother, who agrees to attend with him. Micah prays every night that God will allow his mother, who is in Heaven, to attend the party. For young Micah and children like him who lost a parent at a very young age, it is extremely difficult to grasp the idea behind passing and not being able to see or talk to their loved one. This book addresses issues of faith, grief, and loss. It is also about healing and God’s Blessings.
