"For all creation is waiting eagerly for that future day when God will reveal who his children really are.  Against its will, all creation was subjected to God's curse.  But with eager hope, the creation looks forward to the day when it will join God's children in glorious freedom from death and decay."

Romans 8:19-21 NLT

My Pal and I

Side by side my pal and I,

Footprints and pawprints together.

Family by choice my pal and I,

Footprints and pawprints together.

Unconditional love between my pal and I,

Footprints and pawprints together.

Companions until death my pal and I,

Footprints and pawprints together.

Eternity together my pal and I,

Footprints and pawprints in heaven.

To anyone who has ever lost a beloved pet, this book is for you.  Dee Ann has pulled back the veil and shows us scripturally that animals do indeed have a soul and God does have a plan for ALL His creation.  She has restored
my joy and my hope, something I thought would never again be possible, and I know I will see my pet again in heaven.

Rose Levine

Dee's love of animals is only surpassed by her greater love of God and people.  This love is reflected in her book Heavenly Creatures.  If God had created me as an animal I would have wanted Dee to be my owner because of her loving and giving nature.

Marjorie McLendon

Psalms 138:8 says, "The Lord will perfect that which concerns me..."  I lost my Bichon Frise, Sheba.  She had been my constant companion for 10 years.  Even though I have a sound foundation of Bible knowledge and a close relationship with my Lord and Savior, I was still in need of comfort and reassurance in my time of grief.  Dee's book provided that for me.  I firmly believe that when I get to heaven, Sheba will be there waiting for me.

Jay Manning

Heavenly Creatures is well written and gives us greater insight concerning God's love for all creatures great and small.  Dee Ann has given us a beautiful description of His love as found in the Bible.  It was a privilege and a blessing to have the opportunity to read and reread Heavenly Creatures.  All readers will be blessed in knowing that God not only loves us but our precious animals too.  This is a life-changing book for all believers.

Johnnie Johnson

I started the task of reviewing the book Heavenly Creatures knowing of the love Dee Ann has for animals.  When I finished, I knew I shared her love also and that God our Father has this love for His creatures and more.

Earle Holston

Heavenly Creatures is knowledgeable and beautifully written.  It is an unfolding story from Genesis through Revelation revealing that our beloved animals will live again with us in Heaven.  The message of the only way to heaven is through the grace of God, touched my heart.  This book is a comfort and joy - one to read again and again.

Marie Farris

A fresh easy-read, well written story by a person with a great love for our Lord and our animals.  Heavenly Creatures is a delight and reassurance for all animal lovers.

Patricia Brown

In her book, Heavenly Creatures, Dee has captured an area of interest most children and many adults have considered.  Will our much loved pets and all of God's critters - whether they crawl, fly, run, jump, bite, purr, scratch, cry, bark, sing..., be present when we reach heaven?  This book offers the reader tremendous joy by showing how the Bible reassures us of the completeness of God's plan to provide for all of His creation.

Shirley Bain

 I was very impressed with Dee's passion and research of the eternity of our animal friends.  The reader, while seeking comfort over the loss of their animal, could certainly find the way to everlasting life for himself.

Dian Bailiff 

Heavenly Creatures is biblically sound, thought-provoking, and comforting.  Written with the love and compassion of Christ, this book will compel you to reconsider what you believe to be God's purpose in the creation of animals. This is a must-read for anyone who has lost a beloved pet.

Jerry Robinson, author of Bankruptcy of our Nation

In the pages of this intriguing book the reader is reminded again and again that our Marvelous God is a God of love and compassion, and we should imitate His respect and love for all living.  All who have ever loved and bonded with an animal will find themselves saying, "Yes" and "Amen" throughout the book.

Dr. Marti Williams, Professor of Old Testament

Heavenly Creatures is not only a well-researched and comprehensive collection of scripture showing the role of animals in the Bible and God's relationship to them, it is also a labor of love that will reassure and comfort all who have loved and lost a beloved animal friend.

Paula LaRocque, America's Foremost Writing Coach  

God's divine wisdom, immaculate design, and flawless plan for all living creatures, which he elected to create, are illuminated throughout Dee Ann's work.  Her heart and passion for animals is genuinely in a thought-provoking, in-depth analysis of God's perfect plan of eternity.

Billy B. Davis, D.V.M.

I am thankful for the opportunity to read this book written with such love for God's creatures and with a commitment to scriptural documentation.  It is my firm faith that all God has entrusted to us is precious to Him.  Although we know "only in part" what awaits us in Heaven, we will be blessed beyond what we can comprehend.

Nancy Bean, D.V.M.

Dee Ann has written a compelling book about animals being in heaven.  I was raised on the theology that animals do not have souls, therefore do not live eternally.  I no longer believe that.  I look forward to gathering around the throne praising God with saints of all ages, as well as with the lion, the bear, the ox and eagle, and certainly the dog, cat, opossum and raccoon.

Sidney N. Allen, D.V.M.

"Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me.  In my Father's house are many mansions:  if it were not so, I would have told you.  I go to prepare a place for you.  And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.  And where I go, you know, and the way you know."  John 14:1-4 NKJV


This book brings the love of God for His people and His animals together in a powerful way.  It opens your eyes and heart to the role animals have played since the beginning of time.

Dixie Bryan

Dee Ann's book, Heavenly Creatures, touched me so much.  I particularly liked the chapter "Dominion."  I believe more people need to know the biblical meaning of dominion.  If they did, there would be better care for our animals in this world and no more abuse.  I don't have to wonder if my cats Spunky and Squirt are in heaven after reading Dee Ann's book.  I look forward to being with them again someday.

Nancy Rabette

If you love God and animals you will love the book, 

Heavenly Creatures The story of God's love for His animals and all of creation.

Do you wonder what the Bible says about:

Do animals go to heaven?

Do animals have souls?

What is our responsibility toward animals?

What do animals and people have in common?

You will find the answers to these questions and many more throughout the pages of:

​Your pets are going to Heaven.  Will you be reunited with them one day?

"The godly are concerned for the welfare of their animals..."
