    Brought Comfort I've been grieving for my daughter that I lost 8 months ago. This is the first book that has brought me comfort about her and the afterlife. I highly recommend this book if you're stuck in your grief. ...

    I decided to buy and read this book because it had been recommended by numerous people as a great book for a grieving parent. It was not a great book for this grieving parent. Although the book is well written and is certainly an interesting read, to me it seemed more like a fict...

    This book was very thought provoking. If you or someone you know lost a child this book will bring you comfort. Many people probably won't believe what the author is saying however; there is surprise on the part of the families and parents which he has a message for. He approaches them...

    Interesting fast read. Conflicted with personal beliefs but realized mo one knows all there is to know. Certainly comforting to those who have experienced death of loved ones and do not have beliefs and faith to comfort and cling to ...

    I want to remember this poem shared by Karen and found on page 201... Letter from Heaven When I passed from here to there, I knew your heart would break. It's here not there where I reside; in mountains, fields, and lakes. In the break of each new dawn and when the sun goes...

    Fortunately, I've never lost a child to death. However, one of my friends has, and we grieved together. She recommended this book. I can see how this book could give comfort to a grieving parent. ...

    I read Growing Up in Heaven purely for research purposes because I needed a description of heaven for a book I'm planning to write. It served its purpose and beyond. ...

    Wow. That's all I have to say. This book really opened up my mind. Even though I'm still very young and not yet a parent, I still think that anyone can read this book, because it would be good for anyone, I think. I really loved every aspect of this book, I'm not kidding! I loved rea...

    This is a very inspiring book by a well known medium. It is written in a light, inspiring way. It is soothing of parent's grief for the passing of a son or daughter, and at the same time it explains a lot about the kind of "agreement" souls affirm before they incarnate, in order to cle...

    While I was at the library yesterday looking for books to take on my trip, I ran across this book. Having lost my mom a year ago June, it hit close enough to home wondering what she is doing, does she still "exist" somewhere, can she see me, has she found peace wherever she is now that...

    This book brought me a lot of comfort. Since 2006 my parents and my husband have all passed. It also details some meditations that I am going to try. I intend to read the author's other books. This small volume was clearly written with specific details and stories to back up his experi...

    While at the library I spotted this book on the shelf. I opened to the middle and started reading. Intrigued by his theories on the afterlife and reincarnation I checked the book out. Maybe I'm sucked into the idea of Mediums and curious to hear from special people that have passed fro...

    The writer seems sincere, but he skates over the surface of reality and doesn't tackle any complex issues. None of his parents or children felt real to me - it reminded me of the sentimental words on greeting cards. I also thought his notion of the afterlife was very limited and dogmat...

    I was fascinated by this book and quite enjoyed it. The concepts that Van Praagh writes about seemed to me to be a sort of mash-up of mormon and hindu theology. A lot of what he talks about are things that I absolutely agree with. Others, I believe he gets wrong. I am undecided about w...

    I'm a sucker for books about dying and the afterlife... so when this book fell into my lap I read it in one day. If this guy is for real, it must be amazing to experience a session with him. Ultimately, even non-believers will agree that the messages are positive and loving, and provid...

    I have always enjoyed reading books by James Van Praagh. Not all his books are interesting but some of them I do enjoy. This one is not too bad. He discuss about cases he encounters with children that are passed on. One thing this book I did not encountered this is what about children ...

    A wonderful look at the experiences of all souls, mainly focused on the souls of children who have died and returned to the spiritual world. The author, a medium, included numerous readings to demonstrate the points he was making. I found this book to be very helpful and inspiring in a...

    This book reiterates what other gifted writers have substantiated and the fact that my son has communicated with me on all levels of transcendence. I believe in this and have been shown things in visions and dreams. I have also been enlightened by the fact that as once identifying as a...

    I really enjoyed this book; it was outside of anything I've ever really thought of. I grew up as a southern baptist and a few years ago became roman catholic. The very topic is really nothing that I was raised to believe in. HOWEVER, I feel that the message that is in this book can off...
