Heaven Changes Everything: The Rest of Our Story
There's so much more to the story. Todd and Sonja Burpo's almost-four-year-old son Colton made an unforgettable trip to heaven and back during the darkest, most-stressed-out days of their lives. Times were tough, money was scarce and the bills, frustrations, and fears were piled high. The story of Colton's visit to heaven changed their lives-and the book they wrote about it, Heaven Is for Real, gave new hope to millions of readers. In Heaven Changes Everything, the Burpos share details about their experience and about Colton's visit to heaven that they weren't able to include in the original story or in the Sony Pictures release of the Heaven Is for Real movie. Practical and inspiring, the short essays shed light on living with a miracle and the afterlife, each ending with a relevant scripture. Listen in as Todd, and for the first time ever Sonja, from her perspective as a mom, show you how believing heaven is for real helps us survive hardships here on earth, including the death of a loved one or the loss of a child through tragedy, miscarriage, or even abortion. This newly revised edition offers bonus material including: * New foreword* Never-before-seen family photos* Favorite scenes from the movie* Q&A section Come see how heaven can indeed touch earth and change everything.
