Heaven is For Real

"Hey, Colton, do you remember the hospital?" I said.
"Yes, dad. That's where the angels sang to me."

Heaven is For Real written by Todd Burpo with Lynn Vincent is the real story of a little boy named Colton. It tells of how he takes an astounding journey to heaven and back after his apendix burst. Colton's dad, a preacher, slowly realizes that, yes, his little boy knows more about heaven than he does, apparently because he's been there. In this amazing book of the real story of Colton (poor kid) you realise that, yes, Heaven is for real.

Rating: 10/10- a must read

Pages: just over 150

Extras: I grew closer to God when I was reading this book, and learned how blessed that I am to be so loved by god.

My Weird, Freaky, Awesome Idea (and the story behind my blog's name)

When my mom made her first blog, I thought "Wow..... My Mom made a Blog???? Whoa ..." A couple of months later, I found myself looking at her blog online and thinking "Oh WOW ............. this is actually pretty cool. Maybe I could make one too, someday. " And now, a couple of weeks later, here I am.... Making my very own blog.

Anyway, when I was making-up my blog's name (in the middle of a very long road trip), I decided just to take a step back and think about what I was doing. "After all," I told myself, "you're only dreaming, anyway." But, I wasn't really good at convincing myself not to make my already sort-of thought-up blog. So when I was sitting near my tiny computer thinking of what in the world to name it, I thought back to me thinking (do you follow?) that I was just dreaming, and I thought "Wouldn't Dream be an absolutely wonderful name for it?" The "Red Panda" part of it was completely random. And that's how Red Panda Dreams came to be.
