I’ve learned that the ones who society considers least, God often uses most. And adversity often puts us on God’s varsity. Josiah is no exception. This remarkable lad has autism, but autism doesn’t have him! There’s no limit to what God can do with a totally surrendered life. This powerful book will stretch and propel you on your journey with Jesus. Buy one for yourself and ten to give away! Your friends will thank you for it.

Josiah’s Fire is an amazing experience! Through a surprising and unusual communication method, a young boy struggling with severe autism opens a world of stunning intelligence, mysterious insights—and heaven. The descriptions of angelic activity are extremely convincing. But more than that, you’ll view God through new eyes. Josiah will hold you spellbound with his beyond-captivating experiences in heaven that are both revelatory and revolutionary. Very few books have held me captive, making me sacrifice sleep and time—but this book did! Read it and you’ll find yourself more empowered to joyfully participate with heaven on earth.

As Josiah’s former ABA therapist, I had the pleasure of witnessing his hard work and courage. After Josiah’s communication breakthrough, Tahni and I discussed the validity of his statements, and Josiah and I typed letters back and forth about his challenges, desires, and fears. Josiah is a great example of how a soul lies beyond the physical, and why it is so vital to treat all children with equity and worth. These children have abilities that can revolutionize people who are open to receive their gifted messages. Josiah’s voice opens doors to spiritual understanding, and I am excited for him to share it with the world.

Josiah's fire is a heart rending story of parents trying everything they can to help their son. The bigger story is one of faith, hope, and love. This book draws back the veil between heaven and earth just a little bit. It gives us an uncomplicated view of God and His angels through the eyes of a child. As Josiah wrote, "God is a good gift giver."
I highly recommend this book!
I loved Josiah's insights into the Holy Trinity, Angels and heaven. What a beautiful gift. The book is good for understanding what parents go through with autistic children especially the meltdowns and socializing. With some of my autistic Step Grandchildren it is difficult to receive a slight acknowledgement. Now I understand better what they are going through. I do have fun with the 5 year old playing dinosaurs.
The book has multi dimensions; spiritual, psychological and personal sharing.
Tahni and Josiah, I can't thank you enough for sharing your story. The encouragement you have breathed into planet earth and the hearts of people everywhere is beyond description. I have highlighted so much and am going back and rereading those parts again. There is so much revelation and wisdom contained in this book that I have to read Josiah's quotes slowly and meditate on them just to grasp the depth of truth in many of the comments.
It's not an understatment for me to say that if you read this book, your life will be changed. BUY IT, READ IT, AND BUY IT AGAIN FOR OTHERS! The world needs to hear Josiah's voice!
Many of Josiah's statements are startlingly profound in their spiritual and literally Heavenly insights.
He clearly gained such insights directly from God while on a shocking number of Heavenly visits.
His spiritual, Holy Spirit breathed wisdom and insights are not only beyond his autism disability but well beyond his age even if he were 100% normal. The turn of phrase in his wording is often freshly piercing--striking to the heart of spiritual and other needs.
He's not the first young child God has used to speak intense Biblical truths into the lives of millions. imho, he's certainly above the top 1-3 of that group in terms of the import of what he has to say as well as the obvious miraculous factors involved in his life and ministry.
I believe that any fair-minded reader would likely be deeply touched and blessed a number of times from reading or listening to this book.
For all his anointed Holy Spirit guidance and use as God's spokesperson--he's still plenty capable of being a tow-headed wound-up-spring sort of bundle of impudence. He is one incredible little boy in a list of ways.
One interesting passage deals with Josiah's Spiritual truths and principles displayed in the play/movie: BEAUTY AND THE BEAST.
It's easy to wish that Josiah were available for a good long Bear Hug.
