Live every day with the hope of heaven!
A shattered leg, kidney stones, and a lump diagnosed as hyperplasia. Times were tough, money was scarce, and the bills and frustrations were piling up. It was into this kind of stressed out life that God sent Todd and Sonja Burpo the interruption of a life-threatening illness and emergency surgery for their almost four-year old son Colton. An interruption that included his unforgettable journey to heaven.
How did they cope? And how can they help us keep thoughts of eternity in mind in the midst of our own overly busy, stressed out lives?
In fifty unique inspirational readings based on excerpts from their story, Todd and Sonja share their family’s responses and reactions to the Heaven Is for Real experience. They answer questions about what it’s like to struggle with and question God, to doubt, even get angry with Him. And offer new insights into what God might be doing with those interruptions he allows into our lives. Each reading closes with a scripture to provide biblical reinforcement of the ideas shared and a take-away thought or action point to help readers incorporate the reading’s inspiration into daily life.
Keep the hope of heaven alive in your life. Heaven truly is for real, and it changes everything!
First I have to say that the first book, “Heaven is For Real,” is one of my favorite books. It painted a clear simple picture of Heaven as seen from the eyes of a 3 year old, and that picture was more than just possible, it was believable. With this book, the Burpos look back on passages from “Heaven is For Real” and add more to the story with their responses since it was published.
Each chapter is almost like a short devotional, and this book could be used in that way. There were many chapters that touched me deeply and have already caused me to rethink and change certain thoughts and areas of my life.
If you have read “Heaven is For Real,” then this book is a wonderful followup. If you have not read “Heaven is For Real,” then I recommend you do that IMMEDIATELY, and then follow that up with “Heaven Changes Everything!”
