Book Club Friday- Heaven is for Real

Today is my first day to link up with 'Blonde...Undercover Blonde' @ for BOOK CLUB FRIDAY!

I started reading Heaven is for Real this week and have about 10 pages left. This was a really, really good book. It will change how you think of Heaven and bring comfort to you if you are a believer...If you've recently lost a loved one or maybe you are a mother who has lost a child to miscarriage you can find something here that will warm your heart and quite possibly help ease your pain. This book is a sweet, touching, and amazing story.

Publisher's description:
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.
