Children have always been close to the heart of God. It is when children are sick, even dying, that they can suddenly bring us closer to God ourselves.

Children's minister and former children's hospital chaplain Leanne Hadley has been ministering to hurting children for years. In Touching Heaven, she recounts the poignant stories and simple faith of the remarkable children she has been privileged to serve. She shares their encounters with God, Jesus, and angels. And with humor and tenderness, she offers their inspiring testimonies to the presence of God in our lives--even as earthly life is ending.

Anyone who has lost a child or another loved one, or anyone who is currently supporting a dying person along the journey, will find in these stories comfort, inspiration, and hope of everlasting life.

My take on this book:
"Touching Heaven" is a book filled with stories about children who are at the end of life's journey here on earth. They are leaving this world and crossing over to heaven, something that is hard to think about when it concerns a child, but upon reading the stories, I found comfort and hope, and the reaffirming message that God does exist. Each child's story embedded itself into my heart, and was like reading a testimony of God's love.A book that truly had my emotions all over the place, sad but uplifting at the same time! I highly recommend this book to anyone who might be facing the loss of a loved one.

A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review.
