Excerpt

arah and her brothers, deprived of the usual means of support, and their mother being in constant attendance on her husband, were consequently often left in great necessity. More than once have these little ones been known to reach the hour of four or five in the afternoon, before taking any food; but amidst all their privations, no complaint was heard from the lips of Sarah. It was not known until after her death, how silently, yet how powerfully, the Spirit of God was, even at this time, working in her heart.

There was nothing particularly attractive in her appearance; quiet and unobtrusive, she seemed to the outward observer like most other children; but "the Lord seeth not as man seeth."

One of the VERY best tutorials for the Little Leaguer ever written.

Baseball's Jesus Alou (brother of fellow big leaguers Felipe and Matty Alou), sticks to the basics for your youngsters:

*Throwing to the cut-off man
*Hitting to the opposite field
*Bunting
*Fielding grounders
*Adjusting the cup

So if you've got an up-and-coming ball player in the family, be sure they read this book. And if your kid says, 'Why should I throw to the cut-off man?', tell them, it's because 'Jesus Says So'!
