Waking Up in Heaven: A True Story of Brokenness, Heaven and Life Again
This book is worth reading.
This book shares a different viewpoint of heaven and meeting God than others I have previously read. Crystal McVea is very open and honest about all aspects of her life, including the parts that she is not proud of. It shows us that we are all loved by The Lord, no matter who we are or what we've done.

This book can resonate with anyone.
Meeting God in heaven, how can you not want to read about that? The fact that the story tells of her brokeness and human failures just makes God's love resonate all the more. Anyone can identify with her life and the tragedies and trials. Every one can glean a lot about who God is by how her life changes after meeting him in person. I highly recommend this book both to people who know God and to those who aren't sure he is there!

A True Story Of A Heaven Experience
Crystal McVea and Alex Tresniowski in their new book "Waking Up In Heaven" published by Howard Books gives us A True Story of Brokenness, Heaven, and Life Again.
From the back cover: Tell them what you can remember.
On December 10, 2009, Crystal McVea, a thirty-two-year-old mother of four, stopped breathing. Her face turned a dark shade of blue, then black. Her mother screamed for help, and a nurse tried to revive her . . . to no avail. Today, Crystal does not remember what happened in that hospital room during the nine minutes she was unconscious and unable to breathe on her own. She has no memory of the panic and the rushing nurses and the loud cries of "Code Blue." She simply remembers drifting off.
And she remembers waking up in heaven.
For most of Crystal's broken life, she felt utterly beyond the reach of God-- if God was even real. Then came December 10--and the nine minutes that changed everything. Waking Up in Heaven invites readers along on a journey to witness the relentless pursuit of God in a life that was shattered and seemingly beyond hope, an awe-inspiring account of love, forgiveness, and redemption, and the healing power of God's presence.
And that is why I want to share my story with the world. Because I was a skeptic and a sinner, and I didn't believe in God or in heaven. But God is real. Heaven is real. And God's love for us is the realest thing of all.
If you have any doubts that Heaven is a real place then you must read "Waking Up In Heaven". If you believe, like many individuals seem to that there is no after-life and certainly no Heaven, and by extension, no Hell, then you must read "Waking Up In Heaven". Crystal McVea was there! She died. She was gone for nine minutes before coming back to tell us her story. Ms. McVea does more than just tell us of what happened in Heaven she tells us of her life story with all the good and bad. Why is that important? I feel it is important because it makes her real with experiences that all of us can relate to in some fashion. This is not some college lecture that will make your eyes glassy. "Waking Up In Heaven" will keep you interested and flipping pages until the very end. Thank you Ms. McVea for giving us this wonderful story.
