A Good Read

A girlfriend from California recently sent me a package that contained this book as well as the dvd Fireproof; this was such a surprise because I hadn't been in communication with her for quite awhile.  This is a quick and easy read but it took me several days due to other projects.  Several years ago I had read Don Piper's book, 90 Minutes in Heaven, and found it so comforting too.  This story occurs in Nebraska but also  covers Denver and several towns within 15 minutes of my house.  Although it is written for adults, I do think that in certain situations this would comfort children who are gravely ill.  If you get a chance, make sure you get your hands on it.
I worked in the yard yesterday and enjoyed the beautiful spring weather but today is raining so I'm grabbing hubby to go to Kohl's for their senior sale.
Hugs, Noreen


  1. I agree sister! Loved both of the books you mentioned . . . they are such amazing stories . . . they give me hope!

  2. I have marked this book to read at some point. I am not sure where I recently saw it referenced, maybe it was on your blog? Anyways, it looks like a fascinating read and it is on my list. Glad to read another good review of it!

  3. I read this book in an afternoon recently, and you are soo right. A quick, wonderful read! I feel like it was really convincing too as it is soo from a child's innocent point of view. I have a copy laying on the nightstand waiting for my Melly to read when she gets here tonight. : ) Have a wonderful day Noreen! HUGS

  4. I have heard about that book. I may check it out of the library (o: Hope you find some great sales.

  5. What a sweet gift to receive. I don't have much time to read right now, so it's limited to my Bible and devotional. I have heard of the book and that it is really good!

    Love you, my friend...we need to connect!
    Have a wonderful evening!

  6. I read this book in a day. Wow, I talked about it this morning in our Bible study. Would love to sit with you over the kitchen table and chat over the fascinating experience of this little boy. Hugging you. Raining her too.

  7. I must get this book, I have heard so many great reviews here in blogland,Thank you for sharing,Noreen.

  8. I will look for that book at the library. Thanks Noreen.
