Hiding in the Light

Review: Hiding in the Light is the true story of Rifqa Bary. Born and raised a Muslim, Rifqa felt there was more to life then being treated unfairly by her family and memorizing prayers of her religion in a language she didn't even understand. After years of abuse, Rifqa was depressed and ready to give up. Crying out to God, she asked for answers and for Him to reveal himself or she was ready to end it all. Rifqa's prayer was answered and found Jesus. However, her new found love and faith was strictly forbidden by her family and Muslim community. Even though she tried to keep her conversion a secret, she was eventually found out and confronted by her father. Fearing for her life, Rifqa sought refuge with Christian friends and connections and ran away from home at 16. After her decision to leave her family, Rifqa's life was changed forever. Through legal battles and threats to her life, Rifqa's journey was not an easy one. But, by faith Rifqa knew the Lord was with her and would keep her safe. Her story is one of extreme courage, faith, and an inspiration for all. I was blown away by Rifqa's story and if there is one book you should read this year, it's this one!
