Children often picture heaven as a place where everyone floats around a sky of white, puffy clouds, playing harps and singing. This beautifully illustrated children’s book by best-selling author Marty Machowski shows how the Bible depicts a very different heaven than the one many of us imagine.
Machowksi explains how God doesn’t just welcome “good” people into heaven; he welcomes sinners into heaven. God Made Me for Heaven points to a God who will recreate our earth for us to enjoy and live with us here forever.
When young Leo and his friends engage Leo's grandmother on their first day of summer vacation they get into a conversation about heaven. The kids have all kinds of questions and discover that heaven is much different than they first thought. this picture book includes a gospel presentation and speaks truth in simple language kids can understand. In this new release in the God Made Me series, Machowski helps parents and caregivers have life-changing conversations with children about how we will be with Jesus when we die—and how we can long for and anticipate Christ’s return.
God Made Me for Heaven invites children to understand that God made each person for heaven and provided a way through his son, Jesus, to get there. Soon, he will return to recreate the earth, end sin and suffering once and for all, and come to live with us forever.
Included in the back of the book is a special section just for parents and caregivers that provides biblical guidance and help as they have this important conversation with children.
