Joy desperately reaches out for help because her single mom is dying. Living in an underprivileged part of town, their lives are filled with sickness, violence, fear, and danger. When My Mommy Dies, Can I Live with You? gives a glimpse of how an average empty-nester couple were compelled to help Joy.
They learn the awful reality of the poverty and terror in a part of the city just a few miles from their home. God protects Joy and orchestrates events so their lives intersect.
"I have known Dave and Carolyn for over thirty years. We have two girls the same ages as their two daughters. I have seen tremendous Christian growth in their lives over these years. The story in this Christ-centered book does not surprise me. It is filled with their practical faith and tender hearts as they continue to reach out to hurting people. It is informative as it exposes the dilemma of poor people whose lives have been affected by the HIV/AIDS virus and other social problems. It is challenging as it forces the reader to evaluate the quality of his/her own Christianity. It is almost a diary of their experiences and the reader will be a different person in many ways when the book is closed."
