It is, in fact, quite possible to have a 'near death' experience without the body being compromised, it is simply an experience of our true relationship with the divine and the divine within us. Only religion has made this seem fearful and only available with some sort of silencing of the body. This communication is in the Mind, our minds and the Mind of God. And it is there eternally and unceasingly, with or without the body since mind has no dependency on the body.

Overall this was a book of love for God throughout some horrific times. A lesson to learn from this would be to always have God in our thoughts and pray everyday to him about your love and needing guidance. RIP Willie and the family!

An inspirational and thought-provoking account of the author's near death experience, her journey to heaven, and her return to life with a purpose. This comforting book describes miracles and messengers from God who guide us, communicate with us, and provide us with peace and joy.

A thought-provoking story. To me, it was less than what I hoped it would be in terms of the hereafter.

This is a story about a women's near-death experience and what she experienced. This is a great and easy read. The author seems to be truthful in her experiences and does not exaggerate or preach.
