Book Review: We Lived in Heaven by Sarah Hinze

I have a special book to share with you today: We Lived in Heaven by Sarah Hinze . . .

This book is a remarkable collection of accounts of families who have had the opportunity to meet the souls of their sons and daughters before they were born. Read about the vivid memories of life in heaven by young children, and dramatic stories of prayers answered by guardian angels who watch over us. Discover:

* A letter from a mother to her son, whom she gave up for adoption, telling him of the dream that guided her through that painful decision.
* A kidnapped child who survived her ordeal by the guiding hand of the baby sister who would be born years later.
* A little boy's memory of being brought to earth by his grandfather--a man he never knew.
* A woman's vision of a child in a garden, and the powerful certainty that he was her son, waiting his turn to come into this world.

Sarah Hinze's own personal pre-birth experiences complete this inspiring collection, which radiates a universal sense of peace, joy, and hope that touches us all.

My Review

 We Lived in Heaven is a heart-warming book that shares stories of pre-birth experiences. At first, I didn't quite understand what that meant - Were they talking about near death experiences when the person remembered that they had lived in Heaven before coming to earth as a baby?

But actually, it's from the point of view of parents or future-parents. Some are near-death experiences, several are from mothers who are pregnant, and others are from teens who had answers to prayers that showed them what their future could be and the children they could one day parent, if they changed and made better life choices. A variety of faiths are represented in this book. I love that each story shares an intimate personal story about our divinity and that we did live with Heavenly Father before we came to Earth as little babies.

If you love happy true stories that give you tingles and make your day brighter, then you would love We Lived in Heaven.

You can find out more about Sarah Hinze and her research on pre-birth experiences on her website. We Lived in Heaven is available in bookstores and online.

I received my copy in the mail yesterday and will be blogging about it later in the month. I started reading some last night and couldn't stop.
