Overview

Dorie: The Girl Nobody Loved by Dorie Van Stone, Erwin W. Lutzer

"Someone has said that when you have nothing left but God, you realize that God is enough. God had stood beside me when no one else wanted me. He was not going to abandon me now. God would have to heal the emotional pain that throbbed through my body."

As a child, Dorie was rejected by her mother, sent to live in an orphanage where she was regularly beaten by the orphanage director, was beaten time and again by cruel foster parents, and was daily told that she was ugly and unlovable. Dorie never knew love until a group of college students visited the orphanage and told her that God loved her. As she accepted that love, her life began to change.

Dorie is a thrilling true account of what God's love can do in a life. Doris Van Stone takes readers through the hard years of her childhood into her fascinating years as a missionary with her husband to the Dani tribe in New Guinea. With the rise of illegitimate births, the increase in divorce statistics, and the frightening escalation of child abuse, this story stands as a reminder that God's love, forgiveness, and grace are greater than human hurt and sorrow.

I remember my mother giving this book to me. Of course, I tossed it on the side, like everything else she gave me. I eventually read it, though, wishing that I had started a long time ago. This book will allow teens to appreciate the life they had. It is very sad, beautifully written.

I read this book in school, it was supposed to be a chapter a day, but i couldn't stop reading until I was done. I've been looking for it ever since (In my 30s now). I still couldn't stop reading once I started.
