Book Review: Heaven is For Real

I am soo behind in my posting.  It has been CRAZY here with Makenzie being home for Spring Break last week and all the wedding excitement going on with my Brother-in-law's upcoming wedding.  I'll be posting for days to catch up!  I did want to quickly post this book review.  I was given this little book to read shortly after I miscarried, and it gave me so much encouragement that I had to share it with others.  I read this book in two hours-I wasn't able to put it down! If you haven't read it, you MUST. 

Here is the publisher's description of 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.

Pick up this little book at Wal-mart,, or where any books are sold!  You will be glad you did! I think my entire family has now read this book, and I can speak for all of us when I say this book will leave you with a smile on your face and hope in your heart.  LOVED IT!

  1. I read this book and loved it too. It made my heart smile and brought tears to my eyes. I especially loved the part where he finally sees a picture of Jesus that depicts what he remembered him as looking like.
    Very touching read.


I LOVE to hear from you! Comments are always welcome!
