Heaven is for Real is a true story, written by Todd Burpo about a four year old toddler named Colton who has already faced some heavy challenges in his life. There was an incident in March of 2003 which changed his life forever. He was in the hospital for fifteen horrid days, fighting for his life the entire time. His parents spent most of that time on their knees, praying to God to spare Colton’s life. While on a family road trip, they were passing by the Great Plains Regional Medical Center, which is where all of this took place. As they drove by, his mom asked, “Colton, do you remember that hospital?” He answered with, “Of course I do, that’s where the angels sang to me.” Just that one question and answer had changed their lives and they hadn’t even known it yet. The family didn’t know what to believe but soon the evidence was clear after Colton mentioned that he saw Jesus at the hospital when his doctor was working on him. His dad asked him what exactly he meant by that and he responded by saying, “I went up out of my body and I was looking down and I could see the doctor working on me. And I saw you and mommy. You were in a little room by yourself on your knees praying, and mommy was in a different room praying and on the phone.“ Throughout the story, Colton proves himself more and more with different reasons and explanations of his trip to Heaven with shocking experiences and unbelievable stories. Also, an ending you’ll never expect!
