Heaven is Here

By Stephanie Nielson

Stephanie Nielson began writing her blog in 2005 (
It became very popular as she wrote about her happy life with her husband, four children, and Christian community.

Then tragedy struck in 2008. A plane crash changed life for the couple and their family. Christian was horribly burned on almost half of his body. Stephanie was in a coma for four months, burned over 80% of her body.

In this extraordinary memoir, Stephanie tells the story of survival, and coming to terms with devastating disaster. She is honest in her pain and sharing of her raw feelings. However, Stephanie manages to find humour and use wit, as well.

Together, Christian & Stephanie, draw on their love as a couple, sharing the strength of their marriage, and the support of their community and faith. These elements combine to sustain them, and not only do they survive, they thrive.
