Title: Touching Heaven: Real Stories of Children, Life, and Eternity
Author: Leanne Hadley
RELIGION CHRISTIAN HAD
A former children’s hospital chaplain offers stories that recount the faith and religious experiences of children whose lives were ending, intended to offer hope, inspiration, and comfort to those dealing with the death of a child.
Children have always been close to the heart of God. It is when children are sick, even dying, that they can suddenly bring us closer to God ourselves.
Children’s minister and former children’s hospital chaplain Leanne Hadley has been ministering to hurting children for years. In Touching Heaven, she recounts the poignant stories and simple faith of the remarkable children she has been privileged to serve. She shares their encounters with God, Jesus, and angels. And with humor and tenderness, she offers their inspiring testimonies to the presence of God in our lives—even as earthly life is ending.
Anyone who has lost a child or another loved one, or anyone who is currently supporting a dying person along the journey, will find in these stories comfort, inspiration, and hope of everlasting life.
