    Heaven Is For Real - Todd Burpo 

    I have been hearing all the hype for this book for several months now and it had been siting in my room for a while, but I was not positive I would really connect with it. The thought of a child writing a book seemed hard to understand, and I’m a little bit of a pessimist when it comes to things like people swearing jesus is on their toasted bread. 

    But, I have to say, I was proved wrong with this book. The book is written from the father’s perspective and very believable. Being a preacher himself he is already very well spoken and good with words. I loved the fact that they never sat their child down and just said, “so tell us what you saw” but slowly put the pieces together. I read this book in a couple days. You could easily polish it off on a rainy day. Easy read and it is a great perspective. And Do I believe it? You bet! 

About me

My name is Amy Urban, currently a college Senior at Texas A&M. I originally thought this tumblr account was going to be all about my photos that I take, but I realized the beauty of these accounts is that you can literally do anything with them. I am not set in stone on what all mine will entail, but I know what I like: photos, writing, food, music, traveling, family, and friends so be expecting some of that and then some!!
