An Inspiring Book about Heaven You Have to Read!

About a week ago, a girl recommended to me this book “Heaven is For Real: A Little Boy’s Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and Back.” She claimed that after reading this book, it helped her grow closer to God. So I figured I should read it too. It’s an amazing and miraculous story of a little boy named Colton who’s just four years old when he undergoes emergency surgery. While he is being operated on, during only a three-minute period in worldy time, Colton’s spirit left his body and he shares his journey to Heaven to his parents.  Although his parents were  bit skeptical, he precisely told them what they were doing in the other room while he was being operated on because he could “see them from Heaven.” He tells his parents Jesus was wearing a white robe with a purple sash, (a biblical reference that he didn’t know of.) And explained his little sister said “hello” to mommy and daddy, although his parents never told him he had a baby sister because they had a miscarriage. This book shows readers a little glimpse into our beautiful eternal home to all those who believe in God. Read it, you won’t be disappointed!

“The kingdom of Heaven is like a treasure that a man discovered hidden in a field.” Matthew 13:44

    I read the book, it took me 1 and a half hours, I didn’t put it down. Before I read it had doubts, this re-assured me about my eternal home in Heaven ♥ I’m reading it over & over now.
