Desperate to put the past behind him, David struggles with the everyday task of simply living. Facing what would become his greatest challenge, accepting the love and forgiveness for his past, he searches for ways to earn acceptance from those around him. Finally, losing his closest companion and friend — a German Shepherd named Smokey, became too much. His dog had been the one friend who had never left his side and had always accepted him for who and what he was. Devastated, David found himself in the one place he feared most. Alone. A place God never intends any of us to be.
Abused and neglected since birth, Cadie grew up alone. Rescued several years later, but still lost in a world she didn't understand, Cadie became an "award-winning" dog. She received the Boomerang Award at the rescue she was in. An award of dubious distinction, it was given to the dog who is adopted and brought back the most number of times. She won the award because no one wanted her. Which was fine by her — she didn't want anyone either. She wanted to be left alone. And that's not normal for a German Shepherd.
It's a place God never wants for any of His creatures.
Feeling unwanted. Feeling unloved. Embraced by loneliness. This is when God does His greatest work.
FOOTPRINTS is based on the true story of a man who finds the healing power of love only after he lost everything he had valued and given up. It is a true story of a dog who learned to trust and serve only after she'd been abused and then discarded as worthless. It is the true story of a journey the two of them took that neither knew would bring them together.
But God did.
Through His guidance, a man and a dog experience the transformation of being unwanted to becoming cherished. And in the process, they impact lives around them in ways only God could have imagined.
