The Napalm Girl’s Journey through the Horrors of War to Faith, Forgiveness and Peace
“For many years I had lived in outright fear, knowing that I was always within two or three days’ time of being detained by communist minders. The incessant guardedness left me cynical and exhausted, and I had simply had enough. I determined in my heart that I would no longer live like that, always fretful over what the days might hold, always fearing the worst.I went to Toan (her husband) and said that I would no longer live in fear, that I would practice the courage Jesus promises his followers all through Scripture. I recounted several Bible verses, especially the idea that we are no longer slaves to fear because we have been adopted into the very family of God. (verse 15, above)I will stop running from my fears, from my picture, from my past. Starting now I refuse to hide.The following morning I woke with fresh resolve, determined to simply live my life.”
“My faith in Jesus Christ is what enabled meto forgive those who had wronged meto pray for my enemies rather than curse themto love them, not just tolerate them, but to love them. “
Kim founded a non-profit organization KIM Foundation International to serve children who are disabled, disenfranchised, or displaced as she was as a child in Vietnam.
I found Kim’s book riveting, challenging, and faith-building and I believe you will also. Kim’s belief in and reliance on the power of prayer challenges me to pray more for my friends and family and expect answers.
Please let me know how this book speaks to you.
