Hiding in the Hallway: Anchoring Yourself as an MK by Jeanne Harrison

Written specifically to missionary teens, Hiding in the Hallway offers MKs a biblical context for faith in light of their unique circumstances, challenges, and opportunities. Filled with personal anecdotes, former MK Jeanne Harrison champions gospel relevancy and the need for MKs to continue to filter their lives through a biblical worldview. Covering seven key areas relevant to the missionary teen life both on and off the missions field, this book also includes a chapter for parents to help foster discussion.
