Heaven Is Here is a poignant and inspirational memoir that chronicles Stephanie Nielson’s love affair with her husband, Christian, her fulfilling motherhood to her four young children, and her Mormon faith and close-knit community. When she and Christian were horrifically burned in a plane crash in 2008, they needed the strength of their family and friends, their faith and their love for one another, more than ever. In the aftermath of this harrowing tragedy Stephanie has maintained a stunning sense of humor, optimism, and resilience—a strength of spirit that infuses her daily blog posts at nieniedialogues.com, which currently averages four million visitors per month. Riveting and uplifting, Heaven Is Here offers a gripping account of the crash and it’s long reaching effects. With her trademark wit and good cheer, Stephanie will share the wisdom and insights she’s gleaned in the wake of her near-death experience and offer readers inspiration for how they too can find the best in themselves and embrace the joy and beauty of the journey, no matter what life throws at them. Stephanie’s book is a moving and poignant reminder of how faith and family, love and community can bolster us, sustain us, and quite literally in some cases, save us.
