In these uncertain times, we are all seeking glimpses of heaven. In this personal autobiography, author Christopher de Vinck shares his belief that there is indeed a heaven and that we can find evidence of it in the ordinary experiences of our lives.
Prompted by his son's desire for proof of heaven, de Vinck collected thirty lighthearted stories that reveal the presence of heaven in the everyday and illuminate simple truths about God, heaven, goodness, suffering, and loss.
From the smell of honeysuckle in the woods of his childhood home to his father's rosary to the plaster-of-paris statue of Mary made in summer camp, de Vinck shows us that our memories are road signs on our path toward heaven. In hopeful stories of faith and family, love and loss, miracles and the mundane, de Vinck reminds us that heaven lies not in the future but can be found repeatedly in our past and present moments.
