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, Ch

Here in America, we often miss out on so much, with our overabundance of food, material goods, and ease of living. It's so easy to be a Christian that I'm not sure if we can fully appreciate the value of faith in Jesus.

Silvia Tarniceriu valued her faith, despite severe challenges throughout her life growing up in communist Romania. She found that God personally knew her; He even knew her exact size! He continued to show time and again that He cared for her and helped her to grow and mature in h
I read God Knows My Size! because a friend recommended it and loaned me her autographed copy. My friend kept asking me, throughout my reading, "Doesn't it feel like you were actually there with her?" My honest answer to this question is no. The narrative lacks in description, style, and technique and my assumption for much of the book was that the "thin" writing was due to a non-native English speaker as the author. About halfway through I realized the author was different than the main characte ...more
Growing up in communist Romania, Silvia, whose family is strongly Christian, has many obstacles ahead of her. Her family is extremely poor, so they send her to live with her aunt and uncle. Silvia is taunted in school for being one of the "repentant," but she herself is not sure there is a God. Wanting to know for sure, Silvia asks for a miracle. She asks for a pair of shoes, a sweater, and a jacket--things which were nearly impossible for poor families to buy new. Will her prayer be heard? It i ...more
Well written and encouraging story for all ages! A powerful testament to the sovereignty of God and His faithfulness to His people.
Awesome read. It will make you catch your breath, laugh, cry, and hope!
This book is an amazing book on the faith of a faithful servant of God. Sylvia learns young how God provides so faithfully and how He will sustain us even when we don't expect Him to. Fabulous book!
I thought this book would be boring, but it wasn't. It was tremendously convicting, well-written and encouraging. A lot like Corrie Ten Boom's "The Hiding Place".
a totally wicked awesome book! definitely one for the records, a true life story of Gods miraculous works in the life of a lady from a Romania.
I listened to her tell her story and she is an awesome lady. I highly recommend this book. She went through so much and still wears a smile.
Right up my alley -- a woman's story of her daily life and God's faithfulness in communist Eastern Europe.
this is anouther book that i've not finished but teand to get done
