Overview

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.

This is a book that I want to know is always in my house.  It gives hope as to where loved ones have gone.  It gives hope and defines the strength of children.  Children are special and must always be taken care of.

Thank you for this brilliant book! An honest sharing of respectful observation. The story-telling had me personally experiencing the grief and joy with the turn of each page. This book takes on questions we all keep deep within and gives us hope and assurance of a God that loves all of His children, regardless their age!
