A few weeks ago I was headed out to pick up my kid from school. He was a car rider, which meant I was going 1 hour before the bell rang for dismissal. What I was doing to pass the time while waiting was catching up on reading in our car. My daughter also very adorably would grab her own book to read while we waited.
I began reading this book Heaven Is For Real by mistake actually. I had intended to read it after the book I was currently reading Teaching My Kids Values. Anyways I got ahold of the book and began reading.
From the reviews on the back cover it was a book that could be read from cover-to-cover. It was that captivating. Sure enough, I read the book in the span of 3-days. This book has been in the public eye for some time also has its own movie. I’ve been dwelling under a cave, I guess. If you haven’t read this book like me I don’t want to spoil it for you. It’s an amazing and captivating story. It made me cry and learn so much from the main little character, Colton. If miracles, heaven, God, parenting are something that speaks to you I highly recommend this book.
This story is about a boy’s telling of his journey to heaven after becoming incredibly sick due to a ruptured appendix. His illness of appendicitis goes undiagnosed and when it’s finally discovered its a rupture. He will need surgery to clean out his insides. All the while his father who is Pastor deals with his son’s illness, his own relationship with God, and then his son’s close encounter with death…
I finished this book so quickly because the story was beyond captivating. It was moving, it made me think of my children. To have to see them in such a state and be powerless to help them brought me to the brink of tears, I’m serious. It made my belief even stronger and I want to share this book with my loved ones. It’s an amazing, powerful story and definitely brought my spiritual growth way up.
I’ve yet to see the movie that was produced after this book was published but its one that i’ll be watching with my son beside me. ♡♡♡
Thanks For Reading
