In My Father s House is the story of Corrie s life with her mother, father, and the rest of her family before they began hiding Jewish people in their home. This book is a testament to how God prepared one family through a father s faithfulness to his Savior and the Word of God for the most sacrificial service a family could do. Beginning in the years before Corrie was born, it tells the story of Corrie s father, who was a loving husband to Corrie s mother and no ordinary man he was determined to raise his children in the ways of the Lord. The book describes the extension of her father s devotion to God as Corrie herself becomes committed to the ministry of young people throughout her young adult life. All of this prepared her for her role in helping to save the lives of hundreds of Jews.
