    Homeland for the faithful

    Heaven. Not just a state of mind but a real place for real people is how Joni speaks of heaven's reality. Confined to her wheelchair for thirty years, Joni helps the reader to 'crack heaven's hieroglyphics' by pointing him to Scripture--'our best resource about heaven.' Joni erases the wispy, vaporous images of heaven and emphasizes the need for faith to grasp heaven's glory. She uses illustrations, biblical references, and her own poignant stories to bring the reader to the edge of heaven's door. This is the first book I've read about heaven besides the Bible and left me homesick for my real home.

    What a profound thought; to stop looking forward to Heaven for my own sake, and long to be there for His sake!

    Wanting a new body that worked drew her on, and these many years later, Joni loves the thought of Heaven and dwells on it as often as she can. It has become a desired home that she pines for, and anticipates with great joy. <br><br> After answering what's so great about Heaven, the three parts of this book answer a lot more questions, namely under these categories; what will Heaven be like? Will Heaven really feel like home to us? The third part covers the way to get there.<br><br> Surely most of us, if not all, have wondered who will we really be in Heaven? Do we turn into angels? Joni shows in this book that we'll have a far better role!<br><br> You need to read this book for yourself to see what a vivid and playful imagination Joni has about these activities. They just whet my appetite all the more!<br><br> From her own candid stories of experiences where she knew she was not meant for this earth, I identify and realize - at least if we love the Lord and look forward to being with Him - that we are citizens of another place, and this earth really isn't where we are meant to be forever.<br><br> I'm especially moved as Joni helps us - me - to see that it isn't all about us anyway. When we go home to Heaven, it's because we want to be there to see our Lord Jesus Christ crowned and made the King of kings, and Lord of lords. What a desire wells up in my heart to be there to see Him magnified, and to gladly give any crowns or rewards I may receive to Him, for I owe everything to Jesus! What a profound thought; to stop looking forward to Heaven for my own sake, and long to be there for His sake.
