God Gave Us Heaven
As the sun rises on her snow-covered world, Little Cub wonders aloud…
“What is heaven like?”
With tender words, her Papa describes a wonderful place, free of sadness and tears, where God warmly welcomes his loved ones after their life on earth is over. Little Cub and Papa spend the day wandering their beautiful, invigorating arctic world while she asks all about God’s home: How do we get to heaven? Will we eat there? Will I get to see you in heaven? Papa patiently answers each question, assuring her that…
“Heaven will be full of everything good.”
This gentle story provides satisfying answers for a young child’s most difficult questions about what happens after this life, inviting “little cubs” to find comfort in knowing that God Gave Us Heaven.
Author’s Note: I wrote this book after experiencing the devastating loss of our six-year-old niece, Madison Grace, and walking my then-little girls through the ensuing grief. At the time, I couldn’t find a book appropriate for their age, something that encompassed all the promises and solace we have in heaven. My hope is that it helps your family have what they think about heaven straight in your minds and hearts, before you ever experience the loss of a loved one. And if you’ve just experienced a loss, that it will help bring you and your children a measure of peace. –Lisa
