Welcome to Book Lovers Paradise

Welcome to my attempt at blogging. I am a true to heart bibliophile. Here I will discuss and review books as I read them. You are welcome to do the same. The only rules are no profanity, no politics, no religion, and have fun!

How would you live your life differently today if you knew that no matter what happened, everything would be okay, even wonderful, in the end?

Todd and Sonja Burpo's almost-four-year-old son Colton made an unforgettabel trip to heaven and back during the darkest, most-stressed-out days of their lives. Times were tough, money was scarce, and the bills, frustrations, and fears were piled high.

The story of Colton's visit to heaven changed their lives-and the book they wrote about it, "Heaven Is for Real," gave new hope to millions of readers.

Now, in more than forty unique inspirational readings based on excerpts from their story, Todd, and for the first ever Sonja, from her perspective as a mom, share what happened next-in their lives and in millions of others. Through their own experiences, and based on the stories hundreds of readers have shared, they show you how believing heaven is for real helps us survive hardships here on earth, including the death of a loved one or the loss of a child through tragedy, miscarriage, and even abortion.

The daily readings provide a powerful reminder that, beyond the hardships we may face in this life, God's incredible gift of heaven awaits us. Imagine being completely fearless on earth because you know that after this life you're going to heaven, and you know, really know, you're going to love it there. That's the promise heaven holds for us.

Heaven is God's last word-and believing it's real changes everything.

My thoughts

This devotional book is a follow up to HEAVEN IS FOR REAL.  You don't have to read the first to appreciate the second.  This is a wonderful book. There are small bits from the first book, followed by a The Burpo's views on their son's visit to Heaven.  There are 42 devotional messages.   This book is very well written and easy to read.  The passages and messages will make you stop an think about your own faith and how it impacts your life.  I learned so much from the first book, this was like the icing on the cake.  

I received this book from BookSneeze (Thomas Nelson publishers) for an honest opinion.  I was not paid for my opinion, nor required to provide a positive one.
