BSF Prayers

Hey all!

As you know for the past several years, I’ve done Sunday prayer requests. While I love praying for you all, I have felt it wasn’t very effective.

This year, BSF is doing online prayers through their prayer wall.

Thus, instead of me doing my online prayer requests, I’ve decided to direct you all to BSF’s online prayer request page where I feel you can be prayed for by more and helped more.

Here is the link:

This link will be available on my sidebar as well.

I want to encourage you to submit your prayer requests on BSF’s site so that everyone around the world can pray for you.

God bless!


Book Review: The Whipping Boy

The Whipping BoyThe Whipping Boy by Sid Fleischman is the 1987 Newbery Award winner for children’s literature. A very short, cute tail, we follow the story of Prince Horace, and his whipping boy, Jemmy, who is a former rat catcher. A whipping boy was someone who took the beating of the prince in his place since royalty could not be beaten. Whether or not this is historical fact is debated. Suffice it to say, Jemmy did not like Prince Horace because of it.

One day, Prince Horace is bored and decides to run away, taking Jemmy with him. Jemmy is ecstatic because now he can run away. However, the boys run into two ruffians, known as Hold-Your-Nose Billy and Cutwater, who discover they have captured royalty and intend to ransom the prince. However, these ruffians are dull, and the boys have no problem defeating them at every turn.

Full of delightful adventure and funny scenarios, The Whipping Boy is a tale you and your kids (especially boys) will love. Highly recommended
