Laurel Sewell, First Lady, Freed-Hardeman University:
Instructional, inspirational, and insightful biblical accounts are skillfully woven together with Blackmon's own visits to the Begging Place. Like a luminous thread running through the book is the powerful influence of her prayerful mother; Lea Fowler, Becky's candid and often humorous remembrances of growing up in a prayerful family are honest enough to dispel the notion that one must be unattainably saintly in order to be spiritual.
Betty Bender, Author, What's a Woman to Do?, What Do You Think?, and To Love a Child:
Becky has a heart for the Lord; she shares a piece of it in this book. Her experiences growing up in the mission field are heartwarming and sometimes heartrending. Prayer was her mainstay in her triumph over serious disease; prayer is her passion. Your heart will delight in the very personal way she encourages you to "pray without ceasing."
Janie Craun, Editor, Christian Woman:
Becky Fowler Blackmon writes just as she speaks, with an enthusiasm that keeps you hanging on to each word. The Begging Place sheds new light on Bible men and women who found strength in difficult times through prayer-not perfunctory prayer; but the gut-wrenching kind that pours from a desperate heart. Each chapter includes heartwarming stories coupled with a rich textual study that reminds us we are all "God's little girls."
