In her first book McVea tells the extraordinary story about her personal transformation after visiting heaven. On Dec. 10, 2009 Crystal was being treated in a hospital for pancreatitis. Her heart stopped pumping for nine minutes before doctors managed to revive her. In those nine minutes, she went to heaven, stood with God, and was forever changed.
In her currently released book Chasing Heaven, McVea shares the story of how her life has profoundly changed after visiting heaven. She has become a brand new person in every conceivable way. By dying, McVea said that she has learned how to live again.
McVea is a schoolteacher who lives in Altus with her husband Virgil, a US Army veteran, and their four children. To learn more about Crystal visit CrystalMcVea.com.
