Great book for those who have experienced a loss

Postby HawkeyeGirl16 » Tue Mar 22, 2011 12:03 pm

Just thought that I would share a link to the Today Show's website. ... ?gt1=43001

They had Colton Burpo and his family on recently talking about his story that lead to the book Heaven is for Real. I received the book as a gift from a family friend after losing the triplets. I kind of tossed it aside at first, but then received a second copy from the owner of our local Christian bookstore while I was there buying a few things for the funeral. I gave one copy to my mother, but still never did pick up the book to read myself. A couple of weeks after losing the triplets, my husband and I received an anonymous card in the mail that had a copy of chapter 17 in it. This finally got my attention. So, I sat down and read the entire book that day. I absolutely loved this book! It brought me so much comfort and gave me hope that I might see my little ones again someday. If you haven't read it, I would highly recommend it.

I just read that book this winter and loved it. It really touched me, especially the chapter about who he met in heaven. Definitely made me a believer and hope that I"ll meet my little one someday
