It's not very often I read a book that actually impacts my life. Heck, let's be honest, lately it's not often I even read a book. Last week while crusing the Target library I saw one that caught my eye. On the cover was a little boy and the title read "Heaven is for Real: A little boy's astounding story of his trip to heaven and back." I picked it up and read the back. I was immediately hooked.

I'm not a super religious person. I don't pray as often as I should. I don't go to church as regularly as I'd like. But I am a faithful person. I believe in God. But even I have my doubts. People continually tell me my mom is watching over us. That's she always here. But sometimes it's hard for me to believe it. This book gives me hope in a world sometimes filled with doubt. It gives me hope that one day I will see her again. Funny how the innocence of child can help a grown adult see the world a little differently.
