“In Her Threads: A collection of short stories depicting how cultural struggles and a pure will to survive has led to countless Refugees being introduced to a wholly unknown world, America with compassion and language being their only currency for advancement”: insights into the refugee experience from an advocate for those trying to rebuild their lives. “In Her Threads” is the creation of published author, Deni Kidd. Deni was born in America but grew up in North Africa where her father worked in the oil fields. She learned to appreciate different cultures and different customs at an early age. She returned to America to attend college and eventually settled in East Tennessee. She is married with five children. Her many grandchildren are the love of her life. She has worked as an art therapist, a Children and Youth Specialist, and a Psychiatric Rehabilitation Specialist. She has always been an advocate for those who are less fortunate. For the past ten years, she has been an advocate for human trafficking victims and refugees who are trying to assimilate into the American culture. She teaches English and helps provide basic necessities to refugees who come to America with nothing but the clothes on their backs. She also provides essentials like friendship, hope, laughter, and love.

“...among these short stories of their true life experiences there is great joy and many a humorous story. Each class I teach gives me insight into a world I never knew before. I am writing about what I continue to encounter in hopes that the community will become more involved in understanding the plight of so many displaced people in the world today.” --Deni Kidd

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Deni Kidd’s new book chronicles what she has learned as an advocate for refugees.

Refugees flee their homes in search of security and safety in a foreign land, but the coping process alone is nearly too much to withstand. Almost all refugees have seen a loved one die because of war. One saw a loved one burned to death. One set of parents are missing a daughter that was stolen in the night. The more Deni Kidd gets to know them and the more they communicate, the more she hears of the terrible horrors they endured. Many are still hoping to find that lost daughter or son. So many of her students have health issues because of abuse.

She witnesses the aftermath of war in her classroom. The refugees she teaches have often told her that they pray, pray, and pray. She has seen them pray for hours. This is their comfort and their strength. They know firsthand of not being able to control what happens in their life during wartime, so they are quick to place their lives into the hands of a loving God. They never blame God. They are quick to thank Him for answered prayers. They know evil is evil and God is good. They never doubt it. They have been in hell, and they are sure of Heaven. It is as simple as that.
