“I know Heaven is for Real … I was sitting in Jesus’ lap.”

So what is heaven like - what does Jesus look like?

Colton Burpo Heaven is for Real

When four-year-old Colton Burpo made it through an emergency appendectomy, his family was overjoyed at his miraculous survival. Yet Colton would reveal more about his experience – much more. In the following months, this little boy began sharing his extraordinary story, answering the question – what is heaven like – and detailing his visit with Jesus.

Colton’s memories of Heaven are stirring, and he identified what millions agree is the Real Face of Jesus!

Throughout the ages, we have wondered “what does Jesus look like?” We want to see his face and look deeply into his eyes. We desire a personal connection – a meaningful relationship with Him. For many, visualizing Jesus helps to connect and better understand His deep love.



Colton’s father often asked Colton these questions:

What is heaven like?  What does Jesus look like? Over the years, he showed Colton hundreds of pictures of Jesus. At last, Colton declares: “Dad, that one’s right.”

In December 2006, Colton and his father Todd Burpo (author of the Heaven is for Real book) were watching CNN’s news story about Akiane Kramarik, the child prodigy who painted her visions of Heaven including mesmerizing images of Jesus. The news story highlighted Akiane’s “Prince of Peace” painting, completed when she was only 8 years old.

In that moment, Colton Burpo identified the Real Face of Jesus.

Many have wondered, and millions have agreed: “Prince of Peace” as revealed in Heaven is for Real Books and Movie is the Real Face of Jesus! This portrait of Jesus Christ was painted by child prodigy, Akiane at age 8. Titled “Prince of Peace,” it’s also known as the resurrection painting of Jesus.

How is it that Colton saw this picture of Jesus? Was it meant to be?

Was it happenstance or divinely orchestrated? Many believe that God shared the image of His son with Akiane through her visions – and God gave her the artistic talent to “record” her visions. (Akiane calls herself a “visionary journalist.”) These gifts empowered Akiane to share the face of Jesus with the world.

While visiting heaven, 4-year-old Colton Burpo spent time with Jesus. Later, Colton identified Akiane’s “Prince of Peace” as the Real Face of Jesus. Here at Art-SoulWorks.com, we believe this was not happenstance, but like all other divine appointments - it was meant to be!
