ReadersFavorite.comAs soon as I read the title of this book I knew it would be special. God's Feet Are In My Sandbox is the inspiring autobiography of Rick Anderson. As a young man Anderson considered suicide. In his deep depression he drove to a pond with a Gideon Bible in his pocket and began to read how Jesus had called Lazarus from the tomb. Rick knew he was dead inside and only Jesus could restore his life. Afterward, his friends and family knew he was a changed man. He met and fell in love with Judy. They were both fully committed to living a Christ like life. Together they served the Lord. Judy had two children previously, together they had Caleb and later they adopted Lucy Grace. They depended on the Lord and He never failed to meet their needs. Judy discovered a lump in her breast, which proved to be malignant. The cancer later spread throughout her body. I had tears in my eyes as I read the hospital scene where she asked Rick to let her go. It must have been one of the most difficult things Rick ever had to do.
Man was not meant to be alone and Rick longed for companionship. God sent Kim into his life and once again his family increased in size.
Rick felt God leading him into prison ministry. In the last half of the book he shares the stories of the men on death row. The tales of the men are heartwarming.
God's Feet Are In My Sandbox is beautifully written. Rick Anderson has faced tragedy, hardship, and depression. Through God he not only survived, he thrived. This book is written in a conversational manner. I felt as though I were sitting across from Rick sharing a cup of tea as he shared his story with me. I'm glad I read this book, and you will be too.
