She reacted the way many of us would. She made me realize that she isn't perfect but like everyone else. This story helped me see that even in our hardest moments, God said everything he plans is for our good. Even those dark trenches. He is everything we aren't. We aren't good and our hearts can be filled with so much resentment and hatred, but God can transform our minds and hearts as we continue to trust His love, His faithfulness, His correction, His wisdom, just Him.
Idk this book really touched my heart.
The first part of the book recounts Corries childhood and early life in Haarlem. It is an idyllic portrait of a Christian family, with their daily bible-readings and peacefulness, but also their challenges and heartbreaks. This is to me the most enjoyable part of the book. Later in the prison camp, Corrie views her trials through the lens of faith, narrated with an engaging inner voice. She faces the age-old challenges every Christian struggles with: to hold onto resentment, or forgive? To view oneself as higher than you should. The only difference is, Corries tribulations take place to the daily backdrop of brutality and murder. Touching is the account of Betsie, her sister who leads the way in following Christs example of selflessness and forgiveness.
It’s a lovely book, although somewhat difficult to read. her calm interior monologue only partially conceals the deeply touching sadness and profundity of that time.

The idea that such gentle people would be so brave and Christian to offer hiding places to fleeing Jews in WW2. I really admired their courage and tenacity.
The very elderly father could have been spared prison if he promised not to hide anymore Jews. His response was that he would not turn away anyone who came to him for help. The poor man died in prison.
Corrie and her sister were sent to a concentration camp were sadly her sister due to a long standing health problem exacerbated by the harsh conditions within the camp, died. Corrie although broken hearted carried on telling the other prisoners about God and her beliefs and was eventually released.
A sad but beautifully written book.
What an amazing family which had God’s perspective on life. I challenged to ask for the grace and ability to have such great love and to see through Christ’s perspective as the Ten Boom family did. Thank for Lord for helping them to endure to the end full of your love joy and peace. Victory belongs to Jesus.
