You can live in God’s Kingdom and still not be convinced. Heaven is filled with those who bow and worship while one secretly disagrees and questions God’s plan for a family on Earth. This worker of Eternal Paradise sees the family suffering and in pain and wonders what God is up to. Is God really good? Is God always right? Will Thaddeus be able to agree with God or will he abandon his faith and his Assignment altogether?
In front of us now is the area of the City called Paradise at the Father's right hand,

Inside the Gates of Heaven is one of the most compelling accounts of an individuals encounters with God in this generation. Not only does this account take you on a journey through the gates of glory, it answers some of the questions long asked by many about our eternal destination. I have personally read and re-read this account in light of what the Lord is revealing to many of us in this hour and find that Brother Oden was a forerunner for many of us. His words and experiences have been repeated through many others who have had similar experiences. The Lord is truly trying to encourage this generation with the reality that awaits all of us - Heaven, our eternal destiny. Bruce Allen For those unsure of the existence of Heaven, Oden Hetrick’s detailed account of his visits to the place we all long for serves as a true doubt-demolisher and faith-injector. The fact that Oden led an exemplary righteous, Christian life lends further credence to his written testimony. It was my honor both to have known him as a friend and to have been inspired by his great faith. Steve Jones Extra Mile Ministries www.extramileministries.net The Hetrick family is very special to me. They adopted me into their family like a daughter and sister, and have blessed me in many ways. Dad Hetrick was a genuine man of God with a gentle spirit. I trust you will be blessed and edified by what the Lord has revealed to him. I look forward to experiencing the exciting glories of Heaven soon that he has left on record for our encouragement and instruction. Arlene A. Cober

Author: Nancy Van Alphen
Publisher: Balboa Press
An Incredible True Story of Awakening In Caught Between Heaven & Earth, Nancy van Alphen takes us on her unexpected spiritual journey that changed her from agnostic to believer. A humorous peak into her childhood, during which she had but a mere smattering of religion, paints the picture of an ordinary girl living an ordinary life. As a teen she concluded God was unprovable and never looked back—until God decided He wasn't content being a mere possibility. Alone one night, Nancy happened upon a video of a young man given little time to live. Heartfelt compassion morphed into anger as she raised her fists and railed about suffering to a God in whom she didn't really believe. To her utter amazement, God responded. Thus begins her journey in which she traverses a surreal chasm between doubt and belief, caught between Heaven and Earth, as she struggles to understand messages she was given about suffering, reincarnation—including her own—and humanity's true identity. With a sprinkling of light-hearted family anecdotes, Nancy recalls her progressively more profound experiences within the context of earthly reality. Interactions with God, Jesus and angels chip away at her agnosticism, until one day something so amazing happens it obliterates all traces of doubt. Between scenes, Nancy looks at various religious traditions and present day near-death experiences, uncovering information supporting what she was told by Divine source, helping her round out her new picture of reality. Her conclusion presents four habits of LOVE by which to live to foster evolution of one’s soul, as well as the spiritual evolution of humanity. Praise for Caught Between Heaven & Earth: "I am proud of Nancy for her courage in sharing her story with us that we might find light in it! It is valuable that she is open and sharing of her reproachment to God. Nancy went in as an agnostic and exited as a full-on believer. Kudos to Nancy for her persistence in continuing the work, in having courage and resilience, and in doing it in a world too often filled with darkness. What a lesson for the rest of us!" - Dr. Doris Eliana Cohen, PhD Repetition and Dreaming on Both Sides of the Brain "Nancy van Alphen takes you by the hand and ushers you into her mind and then into her heart where you experience her intimate and breathtaking journey from agnosticism to spirituality. Her authentic report begins with angels at her door. That day marked the beginning of her transformation which she describes in honest detail. Hers is a journey similar in its mystical nature to that which I and countless others have experienced in this time of rising awareness. The truths that unfold to Nancy in surprising, even astonishing ways will resonate in the heart of experiencers and non-experiencers alike." - Emily Rodavich Mystical Interludes and Mystical Interludes II

On April 28, 2006, as he lay in his hospital bed in Ann Arbor, Michigan, visions of celestial beauty were the last thing on Marv Besteman's mind. He had just had surgery to remove a rare pancreatic tumor. It was after visiting hours and his family had left for the day. Alone and racked with pain, Marv tossed and turned, wanting more than anything else to simply sleep and escape the misery and discomfort for a while. The retired banker, father, and grandfather had no idea he was about to get a short reprieve in the form of an experience he never could have imagined. In My Journey to Heaven, Marv Bestman shares the story of his experience of heaven with astounding detail. Readers will hear of his encounters with angels who accompanied him to the gate, his conversation (argument, really) with St. Peter, and his recognition of friends and family members who touched his life. His story offers peace, comfort, and encouragement to those who have lost loved ones and gives security and solace to those who are grieving, dying, or wonder about the afterlife. Marv believed God sent him back to earth to fulfill this mission of comfort and reminds readers that God has work for each of us to do before he calls us to be with him in heaven. Secure in his belief that his book was the fulfillment of his own mission, Marv returned to heaven in January 2012.

She finds herself spending a couple of days in Shady Grove, a camp site along the Mississippi River in West Memphis, Arkansas.

Wonders of Life Beyond the Grave H. A. Baker’s first book, Visions Beyond the Veil, vividly depicted the heavenly revelations that the Chinese boys at Baker’s orphanage received, as well as the miracles that followed. These experiences transformed Baker’s life and mission work, and he felt led to gather the best sources on visions and revelations of heaven that had come to his attention. The result, Heaven and the Angels, is a narrative of heavenly life based on personal accounts—drawn from books, articles, letters, tracts, and interviews—of those who described seeing heaven after having received visions or been raised from the dead. These accounts provide revelation on such areas as… The New Jerusalem and heavenly mansions The ever-present light and life of Jesus The delights and service of heaven’s inhabitants Our future perfection in body, soul, and spirit The duties of angels, in heaven and on earth How believers can participate with heaven today Since the place to which we ultimately journey should be of great concern and interest to us, we must find out all we can about the blessed Land of Promise. Yet heaven is more than something to be experienced after we die. As Baker affirms in this book, the miraculous power of God and the ministry of angels are available to every believer today.

Some 2000 years ago a group of men were watching a flock of sheep in the hills near Bethlehem, when angels appeared and spoke to them. Luke tells us that they go into the village and visit the infant Jesus, but after they return to work we never hear of them again. Take now an imaginary journey to those times and join one of the younger shepherds as he and Jesus get to know each other as men. Sense with Bartemaeus the despair of blindness and feel his hope as he seeks the promised Messiah who Isaiah says will give sight to the blind. Learn of the devout Essenes living in seclusion near the Dead Sea as they meticulously copy scriptures while awaiting the promised one. Join the women who follow a teacher who does not treat them as inferiors. Listen to John the baptizer as he preaches repentance and watch as he then humbly but dramatically baptizes his cousin Jesus. Stand with David and watch the Messiah ride into Jerusalem at his moment of triumph-but dejected. Feel Jesus' anger at the abuses in "his Father's house." Sense the oppression of a conquered people ruled and taxed by a foreign power. After reading David's Star you will find yourself emotionally involved each time you read from the gospels. You will live in the environment in which Jesus lived and sense the force of his ministry, even in our own time.

We don't hear much about angels nowadays. When we do, they have often been secularized or commercialized. Instead of ministering angels who reveal God’s love and mercy, we hear about “angel investors” or we gobble up foil-wrapped chocolate angels at Christmas. But Joan Wester Anderson trusts that angels still walk among us. On mountain slopes, on desolate rural highways, in airplane cockpits—these are just a few of the many places where ordinary people have felt the very real presence and power of God’s angels at work in their lives. In this twenty-fifth anniversary edition of her New York Times best-selling book Where Angels Walk, Joan Wester Anderson (the “Angel Lady”) offers dozens of reasons—stories, actually—for us to reconsider our rather limited view of angels. In addition to the original collection of angelic encounters, several new stories have been included. Anderson, who holds traditional Christian beliefs about angels, was careful to select only those stories that had a ring of truth to them. But are they true? Do heavenly visitors really walk among us? Open this book—along with your heart—before you decide.

Church History 1805 to 1832. This volume is the first of three on Church History and the Doctrine and Covenants. It covers Church history and the revelations in the Doctrine and Covenants from the birth of Joseph Smith in 1805 through the beginnings of the Kirtland and Missouri periods. We learn concerning the First Vision, the coming forth of the Book of Mormon, the restoration of the priesthood, and many early revelations given to individual members of the Church. We study the organization of the Church in 1830 and the migration of the Saints to Kirtland, Ohio, where the law and order of the Church is given, the law of consecration begins, and spiritual gifts are manifested. We also read concerning the early events in Missouri, where the land of Zion is dedicated for the gathering of the Saints. In all, it covers 27 years of Church History, and covers sections 1-99 of the Doctrine and Covenants and the Joseph Smith History in the Pearl of Great Price. The cover features "Young Joseph," a painting of the Prophet Joseph Smith pondering in the Sacred Grove, by Walter Rane.

Genesis to Numbers. This volume is the first of three on the Old Testament. It begins with a discussion of the importance of studying the Old Testament, and the role of Jesus Christ in the Plan of Salvation and His selection as our Savior in the premortal council in heaven. We read concerning the process of creation, the placing of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, and their fall into mortality. We learn briefly about Cain and Abel, followed by brief discussions of all the patriarchs from Adam to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. We follow the story of Joseph in Egypt followed by the migration of Jacob's family to that land for survival. We read of the rise of Moses, the Exodus, and the events at Mt. Sinai. Then we study the rebellion of the children of Israel and their wandering in the wilderness for 40 years. The cover features a beautiful image of Abraham's Journey from Ur to Canaan, painted by Jozsef Molnar in 1880.
