One day in 1986, Laura Schroff, a busy ad sales executive, passed an eleven-year-old boy panhandling on the street. She stopped and offered to take him to McDonald’s. Twenty years later, at Laura’s fiftieth birthday party, Maurice Mazyck gave a toast, thanking Laura for her act of kindness, which ended up changing the course of his life. In that toast, Maurice said that when Laura stopped on that busy street corner all those years ago, God had sent him an angel.

Waking Up in Heaven tells the remarkable story of a woman, plagued with guilt and skepticism, dramatically changed by the nine minutes she spent in heaven. For most of her life, Crystal McVea was a skeptic whose history of abuse and bad choices made her feel beyond the reach of God. She questioned if God was even real. Then came 10 December 2009 and the moment that changed everything. For nine minutes that night, Crystal went into full respiratory arrest. She was unconscious and unable to breathe on her own, unaware of the crisis happening around her as the hospital staff rushed to save her life. Crystal doesn’t remember the trauma or losing consciousness; she just remembers waking up in heaven, next to God. Crystal discusses some of the extraordinary things she encountered in heaven, including the beautiful gates of heaven, our guardian angels and a lifealtering vision of her younger self. Waking Up in Heaven invites readers to witness the relentless pursuit of God in a life that was broken and seemingly beyond hope, an awe-inspiring account of love, forgiveness and redemption and the healing power of God’s presence.
