Heaven…. Do you believe?

Heaven is for Real: A Little Boy’s Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and Back
by Todd Burpo, Lynn Vincent (Contributor), Sonja Burpo, Colton Burpo

This book was a very quick read, due to the fact that I didn’t want to stop reading it. Todd Burpo did an excellent job in describing the events that led to his son’s discovery of Heaven. If you have children, you can appreciate his depiction of the events and mannerisms of his children. If you have lost a child, you can appreciate the pain that Todd, and especially his wife reflect upon, and the sheer joy that they experience when they are delivered a simple, yet powerful message from their son, Colton.

Although I didn’t want to put this book down, I would have to stop reading for at least a few minutes between chapters, as I had to take that time to reflect upon what I had just read.

Having grown up a Catholic, I truly believe in Heaven and always have…. but this book turns that belief into a form of peace that I never knew was missing.

This is a crazy, wild-kind-of-ride world that we live in, and if you are a believer in Heaven (or not) this is a book that will settle you down and place your faith in its proper perspective…. at least that’s what it did for me.

If you have the chance to pick up a copy of “Heaven Is For Real”, I highly suggest you do so.  Once you finish, pass it along to a friend so that someone else’s day may be a little brighter, too!  Enjoy!! 🙂
