With humor and understanding, Piggy in Heaven celebrates the reality that we bring our own endearing personalities into the life Christ grants us after death. This is a sad book and a funny book. Sometimes, you have to laugh and cry at the same time to heal.

Shepherding Sam CoverBook 1 in the Sam and Saucer Series: Shepherding Sam

Sam’s Aunt Eva says he’s like a tornado—he causes a ruckus everywhere he goes. But Aunt Eva won’t give up on Sam, and neither will Saucer, the monastery’s corgi puppy. Saucer lives at the monastery, but he dreams of herding sheep. With no sheep in his life, Saucer tries to herd everyone else—farm animals, nuns, and especially Sam. Sam doesn’t want to follow anyone, not even a funny puppy. But Saucer knows that if he just keeps trying, he can bring this lonely boy back to the flock.

A chapter book for ages 7–12
