What has been the personal impact? (Video Blog Update)

We receive quite a large number of questions from readers asking about the personal impact of sharing such a private story.  In the time since the release of the book, our choice to share with the world has been reaffirmed numerous times over.  This affirmation has come in the form of personal stories from others and hearing how people have been deepened in their faith.  I don't believe there are any accidents.  God has control of the situation.  He can choose to speak to or reveal to anyone what He chooses.  This is done without Him having to ask permission to do so, or justify it to anyone.  He is the ALMIGHTY!

Another Blog Review: readalot: Blog tour: A Boy Back From Heaven by Celeste Goodw...

We are grateful for the reviewers and bloggers that spend their precious time reading our story and sharing their thoughts.  I hope you will take some time to read through the 5 star review that was recently given on our Blog Tour.  It warms my heart when I know the intended meaning we hoped to convey to readers is felt and understood. Matthew's account simple. Nothing more and nothing less.  We told it as it happened to our family and spent much time in the book conveying how our faith was strengthened.  No doubt about it, we have grown closer to God is ways I am so grateful for.  I have truly learned that no matter what path God sends us on, we will NEVER be alone.  He will always be there, and if necessary, will carry us when we can no longer walk.

Honest Review of A Boy Back from Heaven

Latest review from Lora:

Aug 02, 2014 Lora rated it 4 of 5 stars

"A sweet story that seemed a little less sensationalized than the one currently made into a movie. It felt very honest, simple yet profound. Told by a very young boy who knew that his "story of almost dying can help others deal with a loss and let them know that they don't have to grieve out of fear of what happened to their loved one..." (pg. 123). The crux of the experience is in this statement by the author mother that "we face the cycle of life and losing those that we love as they age, I am full of peace and gratitude. I'm grateful for each day God allows us to spend together in the time we have left on the earth, and I have peace in knowing that when our loved ones pass on, they will not go to a scary place, and they will not feel the sad emotions that we will. They will see love and beauty and will be greeted by those that they have loved and lost in their lifetime. The friends they have mourned and the family they have grieved ill be there to welcome them into God's kingdom as they walk the path of white light into the arms of Jesus." (pg. 123). Poignant."
