The Fisherman's Boy

The Fisherman's Boy by Sarah Schoonmaker Baker.


Jack Bundy and Mary had a child named Orin who grew up and had a stammering problem. His school teacher impatiently threw him out of class. He was consoled by his parents and decides to take a gift to his school teacher to overcome his hard feelings, and made a friend. He took up carpentry and was helpful to many people in the community. This story illustrates how a boy with stammering speech is used by God to effect many people.—Curiosmith (2010).
