Another Book

Since I did not have Internet access most of last week I decided to do something a little old fashioned - I read a book. A co-worker gave me this book to read, but we both thought it was another book. I was half way finished with it and she said by the way I never finished that book. I really wished she had told me that before I had invested so much time into it. I have to say it wasn't my favorite. It was very repetitive, and didn't give very many details about heaven. I also thought sometimes it seemed like a way for the family to make some money. What I did like was that I truly felt that Alex, the little boy in the book, never felt sorry for himself and that he had such a positive attitude. So I guess in that respect it was a good book because if a quadriplegic child can keep positive about live so can I.

Overview from

In 2004, Kevin Malarkey and his six-year-old son, Alex, suffered an horrific car accident. The impact from the crash paralyzed Alex-and medically speaking, it was unlikely that he could survive. "I think Alex has gone to be with Jesus," a friend told the stricken dad.
But two months later, Alex awoke from a coma with an incredible story to share. Of events at the accident scene and in the hospital while he was unconscious. Of the angels that took him through the gates of heaven itself. Of the unearthly music that sounded just "terrible" to a six-year-old. And, most amazing of all... Of meeting and talking to Jesus.
"The Boy Who Came Back from Heaven" is the true story of an ordinary boy's most extraordinary journey. As you see heaven and earth through Alex's eyes, you'll come away with new insights on miracles, life beyond this world, and the power of a father's love.
