From the Mouths of Babes

At my Grandma’s funeral, my mom’s cousin gave the sermon and talked about a book where a little boy goes to Heaven and comes back to tell us all about it. The title of the book says it all – “Heaven is For Real.”


That’s not an affiliate link up there, I just wanted to include it if you were interested in reading more about the book.

When you lose someone close to you, you rely on your faith to get you through. You remember that your loved one is now in a better place, in Heaven, where there is no pain. Reading through this four-year-old’s account of what Heaven is like made me laugh through the tears. I don’t want to give away any details if you end up reading the book, but wow, it makes you rethink every notion you have about Heaven and definitely reinforces the others.

For those who are grieving, or just curious how Heaven really stacks up against our imagination, this is a great read. And I wasn’t paid to say that.


  1. Thanks for posting this. This is the next book I am going to read. Louise and I talked about all the memories of your Grandmother we had in growing up in the 50s and 60s and later yesterday as we had soup and pumpkin squares.

    I just want to call and talk to her today.

  2. This is on my to read list. I've heard lots of good things!
