Author shows class ! Oct 7, 2006
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.
She Wrote It Jan 9, 2006
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.
The REAL Truth about Footprints Sep 10, 2003
Margret Fishback Powers did not write "Footprints in the Sand". It was written by Floyd Keaton of Red Oak, Iowa during WWII. There are many people who have seen his ORIGINAL dated manuscript writtin in pencil on notebook paper PRIOR to 1964. Please contact the Montgomery County Historical Society in Red Oak for more information.
A Gloriously, Uplifting Book Dec 22, 1999
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.
What Wonderful Insight to Have... Aug 23, 1998
Learning the meaning behind the poem shows a new light on it and goes to show that God does work in miraculous ways. Margaret Fishbone Powers' story is remarkable and she truly is deserving of the credit for the poem.
