Product Description

Thirty-two year old wife and mother Crystal McVea was a skeptic before her life-changing supernatural experience on December 10, 2009. But when her heart stopped and she lost consciousness for 9 minutes, as nurses and doctors worked frantically to revive her, she remembers awaking in a place she knew was heaven.
From that moment on, her doubt melted away and she was filled with the overwhelming knowledge of God's very real love for her. In Waking Up in Heaven, she shares her remarkable journey and the message that God is real. Heaven is real. And God's love for us is greater than we ever imagined.

Publisher's Description

Someday soon, one of my precious three-year-old twins is going to ask me the question “Mommy, what happened to you when you died?”

Someday they will overhear me telling my story to someone and want to know more about it. They will look at me with their big, innocent eyes and try to make sense of what they’re hearing. It isn’t always easy explaining what happened even to adults, so how am I going to explain it to my kids?

There is so much I want to share with them, so much I want them to know. You see, my story is one of hope and forgiveness and salvation, and of the glorious healing power of God’s presence. It’s the story of what I saw and what I learned when, during a hospital stay, I left my body for nine minutes and went to heaven and stood before God. And it’s the story of how, when I came back to Earth, my life was profoundly and permanently changed— changed down to the very core of my being.

But it is also a story that, for the longest time, I didn’t want to tell.

    I was blown away by Crystal's story. She didn't have an easy life growing up. Her brief experience in heaven compels her to share her testimony with others - those she knows and those she meets in her daily life. I wish I was that open in sharing my faith.

    When she says she likes to talk alot, she wasn't kidding. Her book reflects that. I do believe her story, but too much ya-badda-ya-badda-ya-badda. While It did take courage to talk about the things in her past, the book amounted to her complete autobiography. I was hoping for more details about heaven and what it's like, not her life story.

    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.

    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!
