The Schoolboy

by Tony Rosa

Fourteen-year-old Sam Parma plays more baseball than golf, so when his mother urges him to play in a junior golf tournament, he protests but reluctantly agrees. Learning that his uncle was a two time winner of the Schoolboy Championship, Sam feels pressure to perform as well as excitement for potential success.

Dropped off at the municipal golf course with a hodgepodge set of clubs, limited skills, and the added responsibility to look after his younger brother, Sam ventures to the sign-up table. There he meets his three playing partners: a well-equipped rich kid, a profanity-spraying cheater, and an oversized neighborhood bully. Getting to the first tee is the easy part for Sam. Making it past unexpected obstacles, squaring off in conflict, and conquering his fears are only some of the challenges he faces on the course.

Sam makes lasting memories and learns a number of lessons about honesty, sportsmanship, and courtesy-lessons that will guide him throughout his life.

Growing up, Tony Rosa was encouraged to play in several junior golf tournaments with his younger brother. These events contributed far more insight into life’s lessons than he ever expected and served as inspiration for The Schoolboy. Rosa lives in Florida.

Homeless to Hall of Fame

by Capt. Shane Watson

I dedicate this book to all the children of divorce, both young and old, who are searching for meaning and peace in their lives. I want to give them hope. After forty years of searching, I have finally come to peace with my own life. I now realize that God loves me, and even when I didn’t realize he was there, he was watching over me and leading me. My message to all children of divorced parents out there is: God loves you. He is protecting you and watching out for you. He has a will and purpose for your life. He will show you the way. No matter how bad things seem right now, keep breathing and keep believing. Even though your earthly mother or father may have let you down, your heavenly Father will not.

In my story, I hope you can find yourself, and that my lifetime of loss and searching will help you in your life’s walk. I wish I could have learned the lesson of Isaiah 41:10 when I was a child. It would have helped me through some very dark times. I ask you to please read this verse every day of your life and believe it, all of your days.
