Summer Literary Giveaway Blog Hop Time! June 25 - 29th

If you are hear looking for the Literary Giveaway Blog Hop, you are in the right spot!  I am so excite that Judith at Leeswammes asked me to participate in her blog hop again!  What am I giving away?

"A young boy emerges from life-saving surgery with remarkable stories of his visit to heaven.
Heaven Is for Real is the true story of the four-year old son of a small town Nebraska pastor who during emergency surgery slips from consciousness and enters heaven. He survives and begins talking about being able to look down and see the doctor operating and his dad praying in the waiting room. The family didn't know what to believe but soon the evidence was clear.
Colton said he met his miscarried sister, whom no one had told him about, and his great grandfather who died 30 years before Colton was born, then shared impossible-to-know details about each. He describes the horse that only Jesus could ride, about how "reaaally big" God and his chair are, and how the Holy Spirit "shoots down power" from heaven to help us.
Told by the father, but often in Colton's own words, the disarmingly simple message is heaven is a real place, Jesus really loves children, and be ready, there is a coming last battle."
You guessed it, Heaven is for Real, by Todd Burpo.  This book is so unbelievable amazing.  I am afraid if I say anything more about this book, it will be a spoiler alert.

To win this outstanding book, all you have to do is become a follower of my blog and leave a comment below stating so.  This is open internationally.
