The story of Colton's experience in heaven had me intrigued. How innocent and simple would his description and story be?
I figured it would be interesting to read a child's point of view of heaven. Remember Christ's admonition to the disciples when they tried to stop a child from "bothering" Jesus? It had me thinking that a child's heavenly experience would be even more fascinating than an adult's.

I drove our school golf team to a tournament on Thursday. Knowing my gift for getting into trouble when I'm bored, I considered grabbing a book of the shelves before leaving the library but just didn't get it done. As I was racing out the door (late as usual) the counselor thrust a book into my hands and said someone (I missed the name) wanted me to read it. That's my kind of divine intervention.

Rather than tell you the story, I'll allow you the pleasure of this easy read. (I read the entire book in less than three hours.) But because you may want more information about the Burpos and their story, I'll leave you with the web address which includes their NBC interview. I hope you enjoy the book as much as I did.
