Heaven Is Here by Stephanie Nielson
A beautifully rendered memoir by the creator/author of the nieniedialogues (www.nieniedialogues.com). In 2008, Stephanie and her husband Christian were in a plane crash. He was burned over 40% of his body and she was over 80% of hers. The book details the story of how they met, fell in love, got married, became parents and built a life together. After the crash they painstakingly reclaimed that life piece by piece through their faith, their love for each other, and their family. The story is a wonderfully honest account of their trials and joys. At times humorous, and other times poignant, this memoir inspired and uplifted me. I loved it. It is triumphant and definitely something more substantial.
