      This lady is a hero of mine. You MUST read her book. It is life changing. "The Hiding Place" - her personal true story during World War II. “When a train goes through a tunnel and it gets dark, you don’t throw away the ticket and jump off. You sit still and trust the engineer.” -Corrie Ten Boom
