From the Publisher

My precious child,
I love and will never leave you. . . .
When you saw only one set of footprints,
It was then that I carried you.

For over thirty years, countless Christians have drawn comfort and encouragement from Margaret Fishback Powers' uplifting meditation, Footprints. Now this beloved poem comes in a strikingly beautiful gift book. Each page pairs a line of the poem with Scripture verses, the words of a classic hymn, and vivid, original illustrations. Footprints is a wonderful way to remind someone of the Lord's unceasing faithfulness, care, and presence in our lifelong walk of faith. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

Based on the well-known Footprints poem, this book includes NIV Scripture verses, reflections, and soft images to encourage you to renew your walk with God. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

This book is simply one of the most beautiful books I have ever read. The photographs are breathtaking. Each line of the poem is complemented with Scripture. I was facing a very dark period in my life and this book gave me the light to see that indeed God is always with us.

I have always loved the Poem Footprints in the Sand. Just thinking and reading the words in the poem and in the book make me feel that I am not alone. I feel calm and at peace within myself through the good times and in times of trouble. This book has been a blessing to me. I loved it so much that I ordered this book sent it to my niece. She and her 6 year old son have been through a lot of hardships for many years, and I thought this book would provide her inspiration and some peace in her life.

Margaret Fishback Powers is an extraordinary woman who has been through and accomplished extraordinary things. What's more is I know the woman behind the book and the poem. She is heartfelt and genuine. She and her husband, also an author, tour the world in the name of Christ and are not boastful in any way. I'm sad to see people deny her rights to the poem and I'm glad for her that she finally gets the credit (in most cases) that she deserves.

This is a very nice little book to use personally or give as a gift - I've done both. It is well organized to help you quickly find comforting and encouraging scriptures by category (sickness, fear, loneliness, etc), especially in times of trauma and stress.

The poem is one of my favorite. My husband has been hospitalized for the past 7 weeks and this as well as other books of footprints although written in different format, has been healing for my spirits. I try to purchase any that is not in my library.

Being an author and a poet myself, I have experienced having writtings taken by others and posted on their own websites - without references back to the source;nor did they ask permission to use them. However, I have always managed to contact them and "gift" them to right to use my creations - as long as they credited me as the source. I am not sure how I would feel if someone had outright taken my creative works and said they were their own. That is what happened to Margaret Powers and her poem "footrprints". It is so hard to imagine that someone could steal the idea with a spiritual based theme and claim it as their own work.

I believe her story and find her a very loving soul - at least, that is what is projected from her book. The book is a simple a short read but well worth it.
