Life After Heaven

lifeafterheaven

Steven R. Music kept a secret for decades. His secret was that he had died (due to a severe medication allergy) and seen Heaven. Everyone around him knew that he had spent weeks in a coma and that he came out of that coma a profoundly disabled person. Before he died, he was a SEAL candidate, bound for Annapolis. Afterwards, he was honorably discharged from the Navy on medical grounds. He spent a decade with severe respiratory disease before he was miraculously healed. Even then, he only told a few people about his spiritual journey to the other side of the veil.

I’ve read several books on NDE’s (near death experiences) and they all have many things in common. Musick’s account of going to Heaven is similar to the others in several ways. What’s different about this book, however, is that the last third of the book focuses on how Musick’s  NDE changed him, and how we all can be more sensitive to the “Heaven bubbles” (Musick’s term) that happen in our lives. Heaven bubbles happen when the veil that obscures our earthly lives from the spiritual realities around us becomes thin.

I’ve come to believe that Heaven is closer than we think, and this book is a testimony to that assertion. I particularly love the stories that Musick shares about his Heaven bubbles…times when his spiritual eyes were opened and he was able to see a dimension beyond what we can see with our physical eyes.

I really liked this book and recommend it to anyone who wants to feel encouraged about the fact that there are angels in our midst, and that there is more to this life than what we can detect with our physical senses.

* I was given an unpublished proof copy of this book by the publisher in exchange for my honest review. The book will be released on March 7,2017. It is available for preorder on Amazon.com.

Life Without Limits: Inspiration for a Ridiculously Good Life

(Cover) Life Without Limits

Life Without Limits:  Inspiration for a Ridiculously Good Life by Nick Vujicic is a good read for anyone facing a life-challenge.  Born without arms or legs, Nick shares stories and inspiration from his life, illustrating how he has triumphed over his limitations again and again. If you struggle with depression, disabilities,  low self-esteem,  lack of motivation or  any of the difficulties life throws at humans, you can be motivated by reading this book.

Easy to read, enjoyable and encouraging, the book covers a wide swath of ground topic-wise.  Not all sections of the book will address your situation.  Regardless, there is a great message to be gleaned from Nick Vujicic’s book.  KEEP TRYING.  NEVER GIVE UP.  Coming from someone who has clearly had a vast array of challenges… physical, emotional, social and spiritual… Nick’s words ring true for any adversity we can encounter.

Pick up Life Without Limits: Inspiration for a Ridiculously Good Life, take the encouragement to heart and start tomorrow with an attitude of gratitude and a vision of victory!
