My 5 yr old wants to know where Heaven is. He has been getting upset that I can't give him a good answer. Any ideas on what I can tell him?

I read him, "Heaven is a wonderful place" and "God made outer space"

  • Nobody really knows where it is! most people just say up in the sky...

  • I would tell him that we're not sure where Heaven is but we know who will be there with us, Jesus. My kids have learned that we don't have the answers to everything. They know they can ask Jesus anything they want about their questions when we get there :)

  • I would tell him Heaven is with God maybe and we aren;t sure exactly where that is, But God said he's preparing it for us and will bring us there when He's ready.

  • Jesus said that the Kingdom is inside of us, and outside of us.

    Many think that Heaven and Hell are just a state of mind. Heaven is happiness, optimism, joy...Hell is the opposite.

  • Heaven is far far away, somewhere we cannot go until it is our time.

  • I would tell him to shut his eyes and feel the light within his heart. That is heaven. That is our soul and our soul is connected to God in Heaven. Good luck.
