81% Of Americans believe in Heaven

According to a recent Gallup poll about 81% of Americans believe in Heaven.


For me believing isn't that hard part--it's visualizing. What does Heaven really look like? And how should I know? I've never been there. But 4-year-old Colton Burpo claimed he has and he lived to tell about it. 


The book, "Heaven is for Real" by Todd Burpo with Lynn Vincent was published last year and quickly jumped to #1 on the New York Times Bestsellers list. 


I read the book Thursday. I sat down with a latte and didn't get back up until I read all 154 pages. It was a quick, easy and compelling read! 


After my mom died in 1998--I had all these questions. Can she really see me? Will I be able to see her again? Does she have wings? lol. All the things that kids/teens think about when tragedy strikes. Plus the line of work I'm in--I meet with a lot of families that just lost a loved one. This book will change your views on death & dying and give a little glimpse into what might really be in store for us when this life is over. 


I hope you enjoy the book too! Let me know what you thought of it if you have read it too---and what you think about it if you plan on reading it.
