Recently I had the opportunity to read the book Heaven is for Real (a book recommended by a few people in my life).  I decided to take this adventure with my little boy. It was something we really looked forward to. We would sit down together by the fireplace every night, and I would enjoy the interesting questions and discussions it brought forth. It made us as a family focus a lot more about heaven and what it will be like. What a wonderful place it is going to be!

We do know this:  And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.”

Revelation 21:4

No more sickness…

She first began noticing symptoms when she was pregnant with her youngest. They found it was a rare type of cancer. She has been through a lot these past several years. I have heard from her family that she has had an amazing attitude with all of this, and after meeting her, I know she has a beautiful heart too.

It was a joy to meet this family in this make-a-dif session. They have some of the *most* well behaved kids.

Mommy with her kids. Don’t you love the red hair!?!

Please keep this wonderful family in your prayers.

    Great job, these are beautiful. We will remember them in prayer. We also read and loved that book! It was refreshing to get a better perspective on this life and even more-so on Heaven!! My kids talk about wanting to go to heaven to see the rainbow colored horses now. 🙂

    Beautiful session Tater & Haley! That is one of my next reads – I have heard it is an amazing book. Did you read the main book to Landon or did you use the kids version?
