A fascinating qup close and personalq look at the final days of seven terminally ill Christians, Seven For Heaven chronicles their feelings and experiences as they prepare for a new life in heaven. Memorable characters like qthe dancing printerq and qthe officer's gentlemanq share touching and humorous anecdotes about their families, faith, and vocations. Seven For Heaven also candidly examines the difficult end-of-life decisions each had to make. The Harveys champion hospices as a caring, humane option for those facing death -- and these case studies vividly demonstrate the many helpful services hospices provide. An informative final chapter summarizes important lessons, including the value of being in familiar surroundings with family and friends, how to communicate with the dying, patients' rights, reducing needless pain and suffering, and the crucial role of faith. While the subject of this book is imminent death, its uplifting message of living to the fullest and looking forward to God's grace in eternal life leaps out from every page. Dying is a doorway through which we all must pass -- and Seven For Heaven is an inspiring, entertaining, and educational reading experience that will help you face it with faith and confidence.Out of Pollya#39;s class of twenty at St. Vincenta#39;s, twelve made a test score of 80 or above, which qualified them to go to West ...
