MY THOUGHTS.....How many times have you told your child, or perhaps your Sunday School class, about having a home in Heaven one day? This can be a hard concept for younger children to understand but author Donna Wyland has written an excellent explanation. Your Home in Heaven is dedicated to showing how special a Heavenly home will be, and how, by practicing the Fruits of the Spirit, we all can have such a home!
Filled with bright, colorful illustrations, and easy-to-understand text, Your Home in Heaven is an ideal way to teach about God, Jesus, and the Fruits of the Spirit. I do, however, believe that it may be more appropriate for school-age children, because of its length. Little ones will like the pictures but their attention span may be too short for them to sit quietly through an entire reading.
Nevertheless, it is a wonderful resource and I appreciate that there are questions at the end to encourage further discussion, along with an easily understood Plan of Salvation. Your Home in Heaven is perfect for families and it is also a wonderful addition to church libraries.
I received a copy of this book from the author via Celebrate Lit. There was no obligation for a positive review and I am voluntarily sharing my opinions.

Having lost three best friends at 16 and a younger brother at 18, God gave me a heart for heaven at an early age. He also filled me with a heart of joy. Your Home in Heaven reflects both.
