Heaven Is For Real

About a week or so ago, I finally finished reading Heaven is For Real, which tells a true life story about a little boy named Colton who experiences going to heaven while having surgery when he was four years old. The story is told by his father, Todd Burpo, who is a pastor in a small-town city of Nebraska. The story begins with Todd telling the story about the different health issues he had, and just when the Burpo family can see light at the end of the tunnel, Colton gets sick. Nurses and doctors don't give much hope to Todd & Sonja as Colton is whisked away into surgery, but after a second surgery, Colton is healed completely. In the following months, Colton begins to tell his story to his parents, and it changes their lives forever. Todd tells Colton's story from his perspective, describing thing so simply and yet the words are powerful.

Heaven is For Real is an amazing story, and it reads very quickly! At the same time it really makes you think hard about your life and faith. I highly recommend that you read it!
