It’s been 18 years since the 9/11 terrorist attacks in New York City, the Pentagon and Pennsylvania, and Redeemer Presbyterian Church’s missions director, Christina Stanton, is now sharing how the tragedy impacted her faith in God.

Stanton and her husband, Brian, were among the New York City residents who were forced to flee their home in lower Manhattan as the World Trade Center towers collapsed on Sept 11, 2001.

The former tour guide told Fox News’ Lauren Green that she went from upscale city woman to refugee in a matter of moments.

It took Stanton a decade-and-a-half to finally be able to share what she faced on that terrifying day that claimed the lives of 3,000 people, which she details in her new book, Out of the Shadow of 9-11: An Inspiring Tale of Escape and Transformation.

“I really had to start over from the very beginning,” she told Green during the “Spirited Debate” segment. “Who am I? Who am I in Christ? … I would call myself somebody who went to church on Sundays, but really hadn’t internalized the Bible, internalized who Jesus said He was, who I am in Him.”

As described in her book, Out Of the Shadow of 9-11, on the morning of Sept. 11 Stanton said she was standing on her balcony watching smoke billowing from one of the World Trade Center towers and as she watched, a plane flew over her head, about 500 feet from her 24th-floor balcony and slammed into the second tower.
