Must Read

Don't know what to read? Do yourself a favor and warm your heart by reading Heaven Is for Real (the following is directly from the book):

A young boy emerges from life-saving surgery with remarkable stories of his visit to heaven. Heaven Is for Real is the true story of the four-year old son of a small town Nebraska pastor who during emergency surgery slips from consciousness and enters heaven. He survives and begins talking about being able to look down and see the doctor operating and his dad praying in the waiting room. The family didn't know what to believe but soon the evidence was clear. Colton said he met his miscarried sister, whom no one had told him about, and his great grandfather who died 30 years before Colton was born, then shared impossible-to-know details about each. He describes the horse that only Jesus could ride, about how "reaaally big" God and his chair are, and how the Holy Spirit "shoots down power" from heaven to help us. Told by the father, but often in Colton's own words, the disarmingly simple message is heaven is a real place, Jesus really loves children, and be ready, there is a coming last battle.

I was skeptical of this book, but not after I read it. It's incredible. I bought the ebook for a little under $8 and it will definitely be a reread. I absolutely loved this book and it was worth every minute of my time!

I always love a good book recommendation and after reading this post, it's at the top of my list. Heading to the bookstore after work (not that I need any more books)!
