Overview

"When you saw only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you."

This beautifully written book tells the true story behind "Footprints"--the classic poem cherished by millions for its poignant expression of God's ever-present love and care in both the best and worst times of our lives. Published anonymously in 1964 by a young woman searching for meaning and direction at a crossroads in her life, the poem has since spread its joyful and comforting message to nearly every corner of the world.

Here is the remarkable story of the poem's creation, its subsequent loss, and miraculous rediscovery. It is also the remarkable story of the author--the lessons she has learned from a life full of challenge, adversity, and joy. This little volume is filled with warmth and wisdom; it is a small treasure to be read again and again and to share with the ones you love.

Now available in this beautiful gift edition, the inspirational Footprints has sold more than 75,000 copies since 1993. In a story brimming with hope, Margaret Fishback Powers, the author of the classic "Footprints" describes her creation of the world-famous poem as a young woman, and reveals the full story of its subsequent loss and miraculous rediscovery.
