Heaven is for Real: A Little Boy's Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and Back - Todd Burpo, Lynn Vincent I needed this book at this time in my life. Extremely uplifting to me. This is a story of a young boy who experienced a trip to heaven during an emergency surgery. It describes the struggle his family went through and how they made it through many hardships. I was raised in the Christian faith and this story follows along with my beliefs. Although, there are parts of the book that are heart wrenching, I would read this book again and again to give me the soothing reassurance that I needed.
