“Not everyone gets to visit heaven and come back to earth, but Colton did!
When Colton was almost four, he became very sick. His mom and dad took him to the hospital so he could get better, but while he as there an amazing thing happened. Colton closed his eyes, and when he opened them—
Jesus was with him!
Angels were there too, and then Jesus had an angel carry him to heaven. This is Colton’s story.”
Children need someone to feed and watch over them, someone to pick them up when they fall, someone to run to when they are scared, someone to teach them about life as they grow up. Above all else, children need someone to teach them about Jesus and His importance for this life and the life to come.
Heaven is for Real for Kids is just that—a child’s experience of his time in heaven, written in his voice, with his words—a book to be shared with other children.
