Book Review

Heaven is here : an incredible story of hope, triumph, and everyday joy


This is a wonderful story about author Stephanie Nelson and her husband. After meeting at her father's business, she knew right there and then that this was the man she was going to marry. They ended up getting married and started a family. They went through a lot together. Stephanie blogged about their ordinary trials, such as relocating away from family and making a home out of a neglected house, but none of them would compare with the tragedy that was to come.

While Stephanie's blog grew in popularity, Christian got his pilot license. Life seemed to become sweet again. Then a fateful plane ride with one of their good friends turned their existence into tragedy. The plane crashed leaving them both severely burned and in a coma for weeks. Their families rallied around them. They took care of the children and consistently faced the ordeal with a hopeful outlook. Even through the hard times this book was full of joy and hope. Out of the coma, Christian and Stephanie embraced life anew even with the disfiguring scars on their faces. I would recommend this book to anyone that wants to find some joy, hope or encouragement in their life.
