"God, teach me lessons for living so I can stay the course. Give me insight so I can do what you tell me—my whole life one long, obedient response."

Book Review: "The Hiding Place"

This is the book that I just finished this past weekend. It is about an amazing family who lived in Holland during WW2 and chose to help hide Jews in their home. The Germans found out what they were doing and sent them to prison and eventually to the concentration camps in Germany. Three family members died in either prison or the camps and one died shortly after being released. Corrie and her sister were the only ones who survived and lived a long life. This book really helps you consider where your perspectives are in life and what is truly important.

"This is what the past is for! Every experience God gives us, every person He puts in our lives is the perfect preparation for a future that only He can see."
-Corrie Ten Boom
