Cornelia “Corrie” ten Boom was born in Haarlem, Netherlands, in 1892, and grew up in a devoutly religious family. During World War II, she and her family harbored hundreds of Jews to protect them from arrest by Nazi authorities. Betrayed by a fellow Dutch citizen, the entire family was imprisoned. Corrie survived and started a worldwide ministry and later told her story in a book entitled The Hiding Place. God brought incredible beauty and healing through her difficult experiences and her words still have great relevance and impact in our world today. We would like to feature her quotes, poems and reflections on our blog this week. May you find strength and hope in her words.
You are my hiding place and my shield. I hope in Your Word. ~ Psalm 119:114
