Heaven is for Real (Thomas Nelson, 2010) is the amazing true story of a toddler who, during his 2003 emergency appendectomy, rises above his hospital room, sees his parents in different parts of the hospital and ultimately ventures into Heaven itself.
This book was inspirational and insightful as Colton’s stories shed light on what we can expect in Heaven. Commenting on Jesus’ beautiful eyes and love for children, God being both big and loving and the Holy Spirit “that one’s tough, he’s kinda blue,” Colton paints a vivid image of the world to come.
The book was a two-hour adventure for me with each chapter presented as Tiffany-sized treasures to be unwrapped. As someone whose daughter now lives in the place where little Colton visited, I was completely inspired.
