Akiane is known as a painting prodigy considering she started at the age of 4 and was making pieces each that were true works of art. At her young age she was also doing something else extraordinary...she was visiting heaven and received a life-changing spiritual transformation. Although she has blown up in popularity on the media years ago I hadn't viewed any of the exposure. She's now an internatoinal painting prodigy with her art pieces selling at thousands of dollars up to $3 million. Guess I'll have to settle for enjoying her pieces on the computer screen.
It was when I read Heaven is for Real, a book I'll be writing a post on around Easter (seemed fitting), that this painting prodigy was referenced. Now some may be skeptical of Akiane's connection to heaven, but once you see her work, it's hard to believe she wasn't blessed with the gift for a reason. Her parents, originally atheists, have converted due to their daughter's experiences and message of God's existence. And Akiane continues to try and spread the message through her painting and poetry. It's incredible to think that at age 7 she was writing poetry, and that even at that young of an age her poems arrive fully conceived. What a precious gift to have.

She paints many scenes and people, and writes poems that accompany the pieces well. I was completely absorbed when checking out her website. When I see what she created at each age as she was growing up, it's utterly remarkable. Go look. You too will be amazed! It's not everyday that you get to feel such a celestial connection through a painting created nowadays.
She wants to be an inspiration to others and a gift to God. Akiane's simple goal is to share God's love and message with others, so help her to pass on the good Word.
