Click here for today’s feature:

On this day in 1944, Corrie ten Boom, the Dutch Holocaust survivor and the author of The Hiding Place, was released from Ravensbruck concentration camp due to a clerical error. For the remaining years of her life she traveled the world, telling her story, and encouraging those facing persecution. In 1976 she came to the Moody Bible Institute and spoke to the students and staff. This piece features a few excerpts of that address.

If you’d like to listen to the complete 40:00 MBI Chapel address from 1976, click here:

  1. Thank you for sharing Corrie ten Boom’s message to Moody. I found her references to her father and the Holy Father moving.
    We don’t always hear what a difference small loving gestures and simple explainations to our children make.
    I found Corrie’s message from 30 years ago to be a breath of fresh air on parenthood.
    Thank you!

  2. Thank you for airing this older speech. I agree with Melissa that we don’t always know how we impact our children with our words and actions. To be like Corrie’s father and have them be a reflection of the heavenly Father is such a beautiful reminder. It is important to remember the pain and trials that many people experienced during this war.
