Heaven is for Real by Todd Burpo

Heaven is for Real is a wonderful book about Todd Burpo's son visit to heaven during surgery. I got this book at 6:00 pm on Sunday evening and had it done before I went to bed. Who can resist books on heaven? We all dream and imagine what it is like so any glimpses we get are awesome! I am not sure if scripturally all things are correct but for the most part Mr. Burpo has the Bible verses to back up his son's claims. Is it true, who knows? But we all need to have a little faith in this life and believe in what we don't know. If this book makes a difference in one person's life, so be it!The Burpo's story of hardship leading up to the events of their son's heavenly experience are relative in this day and age of financial and everyday life's struggles. You can relate and feel the pain that the parents go through when their son is sick.Warning! You won't be able to put this one down. I received this book free of charge from Booksneeze in exchange for a review. I was no one required to give a postive review.

One Call Away by Brenda Warner

As I have stated in earlier posts, biographies are my favorite books to read. This one was no exception.

I loved this book. Brenda Warner is so ridiculously honest that she captures you from the first moment. I admit the first part of the book was a little confusing and chaotic but it pulled it self together about half way through.

Brenda was was a Christian woman who like the rest of us, makes mistakes, has regrets and sins. But like the rest of us she serves a risen God who forgives and forgets. She has servived betrayal, a handicapped child, divorce, poverty, the loss of her parents plus many other obstacles. She worked hard as a single mom to go back to school to provide for her children. Her marriage to Kurt Warner enabled them to do work and charities that they never dreamed of. Her fame and fortunes were not always what they are cracked up to be either.

I received this book from Booksneeze and was in no way obligated to give it a good review.
