Excerpt from An Historic Church: Makemie Memorial, Presbyterian Church, Snow Hill, Maryland Before 1686 Snow Hill was a growing town, but in that year the law-makers recognized its importance, and that it should be classed as a town, and so it was laid out as such by an act of the General Assembly. The act prescribed that thehouses were to cover four hundred feet of ground, and the chimneys were to be built of brick. At this time the town was still in Somerset County, that county not being divided until 1742, when Thomas Bladen-was Governor of Maryland. At that time an act was passed for laying out anew the town of Snow hilt. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

What do you and your wife know about your son's condition?' Dr. Davis asked. 'Very little,' I said. 'However, we've been told not to worry too much about it.' Dr. Davis looked at me a second or two before commenting further. This was a definite clue to brace myself for what would follow. 'Your son was born with Spina Bifida.' There was a noticeable concern in his voice. 'What is Spina Bifida?' I asked. This is a real life story about a young man, David, born with Spina Bifida with multiple congenial birth defects. After David's birth, his parents were strongly urged to place him in an institution since his future, according to medical history of these types of births prior to 1970, would be dim. His parents were warned he most likely would be severely retarded and non-functional. They were told by a prominent pediatrician to expect nothing and appreciate anything. Through infancy until the day of his death, David's faith and love for God grew stronger each year. His drive and his belief in God's healing grace brought him much comfort and a desire to help and serve others. This young man touched a whole community, a whole region. David's father, Sheldon Larmore, never thought of writing a book. However, after his son's death many people in the community encouraged him to put the story of David's life in writing. It wasn't until he received several gentle nudges from God to do so that he realized the need to complete this book. David's life has served as an inspiration for his family and friends—it will do the same for you. You will find encouragement, strength, and renewed faith in Be Quiet and Listen.
