An Interesting Week

So as you may or may not have already guessed, I'm having an interesting week. For one my brother-in-law quit his job yesterday which makes me a stay-at-home girl to a great extent.

I've also been reading The Hiding Place this week. I'm almost finished it. For those of you who don't know, it's a book about the life of Corrie ten Boom, a remarkable Christian woman who worked with the underground during WW2 hiding Jews. She also survived several months in prison and Nazi concentration camps. I would strongly recommend it to everyone. It manages to find light, love, and hope even in midst of darkest horror and a testimony of God's grace as Corrie managed to forgive and bless her enemies even in the most difficult circumstances. It really brought many questions to mind: How far am I willing to go for the cause of Christ? Am I willing to risk my life for the well-being of others? Am I ready to lay down all I have and leave everything I've ever known? Would I be able to handle the conditions? Right now, it seems impossible but God only gives us the strength we need when we need it and His grace is sufficient.

As soon as I'm done this book, I'll be studying for another upcoming exam. Now, I have to go.



  1. The Hiding Place is an amazing book! I thoroughly enjoyed's definitely one I would recommend as well. Has you ever seen the movie of Corrie Ten Boom? That is an amazing movie! We watched it as a Sunday School class once - it was wonderful!

  2. I have read about her but not in that book. In school we read these books called "Christian Heroes: Then and Now" by Janet and Geoff Benge. These books are amazing! and Corrie Tenboom is one of my favorites.

  3. I encourage everyone to read Corrie's books. Tramp for the Lord, a sequel to Hiding Place is even better! I also enjoyed In My Father's House, which recounts her life prior to WWII.
