By Sheldon Larmore
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 wasnt 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 friendsit will do the same for you. You will find encouragement, strength, and renewed faith in Be Quiet and Listen.
