God Knows My Size - Silvia Tarniceriu by Harvey Yoder (BIO TAR). Is there really a God? This is the question 13-year-old Silvia faced. 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 in communist Romania, these things 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 expeccted! And the truth He showed her then sustained her years later as she faced persecution and even prison for Christ’s sake.
