Nearing Home: Life, Faith, and Finishing Well By Billy Graham - Review


Nearing Home: Life, Faith and Finishing Well By Rev Billy Graham is not just for the older crowd. I'm 33 years old and I'd like to think God will give me the opportunity to Grow old. Billy Graham explains what it is like to Grow old, he talks about the process. We don't know when God will call us home, so we need to be prepared every single day of our life.
Billy Graham writes about health issues, retirement, loss of a spouse. You would think of it as being a sad and depressing book but it really is not. It was actually very uplifting and his excitement for one day being called home and meeting Jesus Christ face to face, gave me a great deal of excitement too. I can't wait!!

Heaven is for Real By Todd Burpo - Review

Heaven is for Real for Kids told by Colton Burpo is a wonderful book to read. It is the story of one little boys death and what his experience in Heaven was like. He was brought back to life, but what he describes while in Heaven is so amazing. The story is sweet, a re-telling of a very powerful emotional experience of a young child, retold by his parents, with the help of a co-editor. The storyline is good, and at times heart breaking. There are many scriptural quotes from the father that support what the little boy saw in heaven.
As a Christian, it just makes me that more excited to one day meet face to face with my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
