I have been reading an autobiography Heaven is Here by Stephanie Nielson. It is written by the creator of the popular blog Nie Nie Dialogues. You have probably seen her on any number of daytime TV shows. She inspired me when I saw her on the Oprah Show a few years ago. Her outright faith, passion, and love for her family (and for everyone) literally shined through her down to earth personality.
The book is the true story of a family touched by a terrible tragedy and how they overcame almost insurmountable odds. Stephanie is such a positive person and is one of those people you just want to be like. She has been a great example to me about the kind of mother I would like keep working toward. She has a very honest writing style and her story is so interesting. I have stayed up until after midnight on several occasions just telling myself I’ll only read one more page, several chapters later I have to force myself to put it down and go to sleep!
Reading this book will change your life. Guaranteed. For the better.
I happen to have a signed copy of this book in April and got to meet Stephanie and her husband Christian in person. I took my 11 year old daughter with me to meet her. My daughter was a little apprehensive at first, but Stephanie was really warm with her and you could see the connection she has with children. The line to meet her was literally out the door and she was in the very back of a large bookstore. She greeted each person as if they really mattered. I’m thankful to have read her story and that I could meet her in person.
You can purchase the book for around $15 on Amazon.com. It’s well worth it!
