On December 10, 2009, Crystal McVea, a thirty-two-year-old
mother of four, stopped breathing. Her face turned a dark
shade of blue, then black. Her mother screamed for help, and
a nurse tried to revive her . . . to no avail. Today,
Crystal does not remember what happened in that hospital
room during the nine minutes she was unconscious and unable
to breathe on her own. She has no memory of the panic and
the rushing nurses and the loud cries of “Code Blue.” She
simply remembers drifting off.
And she remembers waking up in heaven. For most of Crystal’s
broken life, she felt utterly beyond the reach of God— if
God was even real. Then came December 10—and the nine
minutes that changed everything. Waking Up in Heaven invites
readers along on a journey to witness the relentless pursuit
of God in a life that was shattered and seemingly beyond
hope, an awe-inspiring account of love, forgiveness, and
redemption, and the healing power of God’s presence.
And that is why I want to share my story with the world.
Because I was a skeptic and a sinner, and I didn’t believe
in God or in heaven. But God is real. Heaven is real. And
God’s love for us is the realest thing of all.
