Heaven is For Real: Book Review



Ok, this one is pretty religiousy, needfully so. But there's one part I want to tell you about.

My mom had told me about this book and then I saw it at the house I was babysitting at last night. I skimmed and skipped most of it. I wanted to get to a particular point.

This little boy nearly dies and later talks about his 'visit to heaven.'. He told his parents that he 'has 2 sisters.' (You know he has one.) He said that when he was visiting in heaven a little girl ran up and told him she is his sister. She said she didn't have a name yet because the parents had not named her. Turns out his mother had a miscarriage she had not told her son about, and they had not named her. They didn't know it was a girl.

I know so many people have such different beliefs, and I don't know about this little boy and his visit to heaven, but I do think our babies are waiting for us.

I like to think so too. I am not what you'd call religious but I do believe.

Wow. What an amazing and inspiring story. It makes me glad I've named my babies. :-)

I saw a video about this book recently and that part stood out to me.

I read this a few weeks ago and just baweled and baweled as I read about him meeting his sister in Heaven. I loved this book!
