HEAVEN IS HERE - SIX BOOK GIVEAWAY

In August 2008, Stephanie Nielson was living the dream with her sweetheart, Christian, relishing her role as wife, mother of four, and author of the popular blog, Nie Nie Dialogues

When Stephanie and her husband decided to take a quick flight with a close friend to tour the family ranch, their small plane crashed just after take-off and was rapidly engulfed in flames.  Nie was left trapped inside.  Miraculously, she survived. 

Heaven is Here is simply AMAZING!  Seriously. 
It was one of the best books I've read in a very long time and, between you and me, that is saying something.

Jenna - Jenna.kae@hotmail.com. One of my favorite quotes is "be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle." that is what I can do today to be a better person - remember that I'm not the only one in the world who struggles, and give everyone the benefit of the doubt.

Stephanie's story is amazing! I would love to win her book! I have a daughter with severe disabilities and have found strength and courage in facing my own trials through Stephanie's story and others like her. The one thing I can do today to become a better person is to follow her example of staying positive, keeping an eternal perspective, and finding joy in the simple blessings in my life and spreading that joy to others. --Jodi Tolman (jatolman@hotmail.com)

I've followed Stephanie's blog since the accident. What a brave person to have gone through what she did and continue to be positive. I think that is what I'd do to be a better person - try to stay positive even when things aren't at their brightest.

So happy to see a book out by Stephanie. She is amazing and has such a powerful story to tell. It would be an honor to read it. My husband and I were texting just today about a saying. "Every day won't be good, but there is something good in every day." Remembering to find the good in every situation can help me be better.

Thanks for the chance to win this book.

Following thru FB and Pinterest board/books. My contact info mitchell@sbcglobal.net and to answer your question: “What is one thing you could do today to become a better person?” - I just started doing it by visiting my brother this past weekend w/my mom (incarcerated) to show my younger brother that he has a support team, is loved and we want to see him find sobriety and purpose. So, I guess the answer is striving to be an even better Christian by treating others with more understanding and kindness.

My favorite quote is "things turn out best for those who make the best out of the way things turn out". I think this quote sums up Stephanie quite nicely.

I live in NYC and let's just say this place has made me become very jaded and I think people here need a little bit more love and it can start with me smiling more at people and maybe it might lift someone's day.
