corrie ten boom

Corrie ten Boom is one of my heroes.  She and her family, Christians in Nazi-occupied Amsterdam, helped Jewish families escape during WWII.  They were caught and put in a concentration camp, and Corrie survived.  After the war, she helped set up rehabilitation centers and services in the Netherlands.  
She's written quite a few books, but one of my absolute favorite Corrie ten Boom quotes is this one.
