About the Book:
Renee keeps a diary after she finds out her daddy is sick with cancer. She even starts praying and asking God to make him better. But, what if he doesn’t get any better? She is worried that she won’t be able to talk to her daddy after he has gone, but her daddy encourages her to keep talking to him, no matter what.
It is not easy to talk to your kids about the difficult and uncomfortable topics of death, loss and grief. Hopefully, with this book, readers can be uplifted and learn about how faith in Christ can bring us peace and comfort, knowing that death is not the end, but the beginning of an eternity with our Father in Heaven.
This beautifully illustrated book aims to help families, schools and communities start conversations about death and grief by bringing hope and comfort. Death is a topic that is all too often avoided, yet it is inevitable in all our lives. We need to start having open and honest conversations with our children and loved ones to prepare for such times as these, to be able to cope with loss and grief, which can stay with us for a long time. It is important to find a way out of the darkness and sadness we will inevitably feel.

Daddy told us that the doctors found cancer in his body. That’s why he’s felt so sick lately. He doesn’t look very sick, but he said the cancer will soon spread and make him weaker.
I felt very sad to hear this. I didn’t know what to do, so I asked God for help.
“Dear Heavenly Father, please heal my daddy. Don’t let him get too sick or weak. Protect him from all the bad cancer cells, and give him all the best treatments. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”
I wonder if God can hear my prayer.
