Check it out! I can write a short post!I thought I’d prove it to you…in contrast to yesterday’s incredibly long post about touring the ten Boom museum. Online I found some Ten Boom treasures to share with you:
- A youthful Pat Robertson interviews Corrie in 1974 (interspersed with a few short clips from “The Hiding Place” movie). It’s so neat to see and hear her.
- A woman posted a very short video shot from inside the Hiding Place in Corrie’s house. You’ll feel like you yourself have climbed inside and lowered the secret door.
- This is a video slide-show someone uploaded with snapshots similar to mine. Complete with dramatic music and a bit of footage from the film as an intro. A little hokey, but it shows you the place.
- Photos from the museum are available to view on the Corrie Ten Boom official website (glare-free!).
- A short bio and excerpt of a Guideposts article available from PBS in a series “The Question of God.”
- Of course, I highly recommend reading Corrie’s book, The Hiding Place.
- Download actual messages/sermons delivered by Corrie ten Boom herself (in MP3 format) at this site. It’s very cool, and it’s free. I tried it.
- Lots of excerpts from Corrie’s writings here.
- Wikipedia has her bio and info (including a few more links).
- Haarlem website with a nice bio.
- Someday I need to buy a DVD of the film, “The Hiding Place.” The Belgian Wonder saw it when he was young and said it impacted him deeply. “It stays with you for life,” he said.
It worked well for me this week to find all of this, as I’ve been thinking about her a lot lately. So my Works For Me Wednesday tip is that thanks to technology, I can dig deep into the Internet when I want to know more about something. And then I can share the wealth.Enjoy learning more about Corrie ten Boom.Return to Rocks In My Dryer by clicking here.Visit the archived Ann Kroeker WFMW tip-collection here.
