Children of the Storm: The Autobiography of Natasha Vins Review by Reneé Ruby

Journey Forth: BJU Press

"A great addition to any homeschool library. This is one you will want to pick up again and again!" -- The Old Schoolhouse® Magazine

Can you imagine living in a country where you could be severely persecuted for your Christian beliefs? Children of the Storm retells a story of just that. The trials and tribulations of Natasha Vins in soviet Russia remind us of the blessing of freedom we are allowed in this country and give us reason to rejoice! It is a lesson of endurance and faithfulness that crosses all boundaries. This riveting tale and true story told by real-life Natasha is a priceless jewel and a great addition to any homeschool library. This is one you will want to pick up again and again!

The story tells of Natasha and her family. Natasha's father was an underground minister and was imprisoned for his beliefs and teaching. During the time of his imprisonment, Natasha is raised and protected by her loving grandmother. Towards the end, Natasha is required to make a life changing decision that will determine her future and challenge her faith. Follow Natasha as she is gently guided by her family and directed by the Holy Spirit, and witness how it changes her life forever! By the way, make sure your tissue box is full!
