i became acquainted with the work of Akiane through the book, Heaven Is For Real by Todd Burpo. 4-year-old old Colton visited heaven and when his parents realized that he truly had been given a special gift – time with Jesus – they showed Colton dozens of paintings by masters and illustrators – there was always something wrong…
Todd learned that there was a girl – that started seeing visions of heaven at age 4 – her name Akiane Kramarik. when Todd showed his son Colton – a realistic painting that Akiane had done at age 8 – this is how it played out…
“what is wrong with this one?”
He turned to the screen and for a long moment said nothing.
But he just stood there, studying. I couldn’t read the expression.
“What’s wrong with this one, Colton?” I said again.
I nudged him in the arm. “Colton?”
My seven-year-old turned to look at me and said, “Dad, that one’s right.”
