Heaven is real

I wanted to share a story I heard through a friend that really touched my heart. Kellie & James Staats lost their 4 month old baby girl Maddie a month ago today when she stopped breathing while taking a nap while her babysitter was in the other room. Kellie blogged about Maddie before she went to Heaven and even before she was born and I have loved getting to know that sweet girl. Yesterday I found out that Maddie and I share a birthday, October 14th, and now I realize why I've felt so connected to this little girl. You can read more about her story here




Kellie is kindergarten teacher by day but has recently been inspired to make bows and accessories for children. Check out her Facebook Store, Maddie's Mom Made That. My heart hurts everyday for her and her husband and what they are going through and I am so moved reading how strong they are becoming. She recommended the book Heaven Is Real by Todd Burpo which is a true story of a 4 year old boy's trip to heaven and back. Watch the video below, God works in amazing ways!


 

"I prayed for this child, and the LORD has granted me what I asked of him. "

-1 Samuel 1:27
