God Knows My Size! by Harvey Yoder

Setting: Communist Romania, 1950s to 1980s

Summary: Silvia Tarniceriu was one of nine surviving children in a poor Christian family in Romania. Life was difficult with minimal wages and the continual harrassment experienced by Christians. To help reduce the number of mouths to feed, Silvia is sent to live with rich relatives but finds that family and love is more important that having an abundance of food and possessions.
When she was 13 years old, Silvia faced the question: Is there really a God? Her teachers laughed at the mere idea of God. Yet her parents and pastor not only believed in God , but served Him devotedly. Which of them was right?
So Silvia decided to find out for herself if God was real. She asked Him for three things - a pair of shoes, a sweater, and a coat. For a large, poor, Christian family these were almost impossible to buy. How could she expect a miracle?
But it happened! God answered her prayer in a way far more beautiful than she expected! And the truth He showed her then sustained her later as she faced persecution for her vibrant faith and later when she was sent to prison for trying to escape Romania.
Silvia's uncompromising faith and dedication to Christ is rewarded over and over as the Lord constantly helps, strengthens and comforts her throughout her ordeals.

Message: God is faithful and will honour those who honour Him. His presence and love is unfailing. Obedience and service are vital to Christianity.
