My new favorite book! I’ve never been this excited about Heaven, before!
As a child, I remember first learning about Heaven and the fact that it was eternal. I honestly thought, “Won’t I get bored?” What kept me from being scared of this eternity was a comforting thought, “Maybe if I asked really nicely, God would let me go back to earth!” And that’s how I went on my merry, little way, because a place without a time-line scared me!
Heaven has always been something I felt I believed in, but tried not to think too much about.
Skipping ahead several years, and experiencing the death of our daughter, was the first time I ever remember wanting to be in Heaven. Not because I wanted to experience Heaven, but because I wanted so badly to be wherever Bennett was! I could relate so deeply to Elizabeth Edwards telling Oprah she no longer feared death after losing her son–death would mean an incredible reunion!
But, for the first time ever in my life, I am truly excited about Heaven. After reading this little boy’s incredible journey to Heaven, and back, I know without a doubt, Bennett really is in a much better place! She’s playing with other children, laughing with our grandparents, and sitting with Jesus!
I highly, highly recommend this book! It’s a quick read, filled with so many warm-fuzzy-moments! It also answered questions for me like, “how the heck to a grapple with the trinity?!” So hard for me to wrap my brain around that one, but this little boy made it so simple. “Heaven is for Real,” brought an overwhelming amount of comfort to me this Easter Season. If you’ve lost a loved one, this book is for you!
