Footprints of Hope – the book
A young girl with a seemingly bright future, Kate contracted rheumatoid arthritis at the age of 13, followed
two years later by the total loss of her eyesight. However, she was a determined young lady, becoming a primary school teacher
and going on to marry and have a family. Then, in her late twenties, she endured a period of severe depression lasting six
years before God broke in with a miracle of healing – not only was the depression lifted, but the constant pain in her
joints was instantly gone and, within weeks, her sight partially restored.
This is very much Kate’s story, but, more than that, it is God’s story too, for it details
what happens when He is allowed to work in a life which is totally yielded to Him.
In this book you will feel the pain of those early years, but above all you will find a God of power
and love whose amazing grace brings restoration, comfort, fulfilment and hope for all who come to Him.
From the Foreword by Bill Eugster...
'In this book, you will be invited to confront issues of forgiveness, risk-taking, faith-stretching, honesty
in prayer, justice and human dignity. The way Kate tells the story of her family’s life and struggles quickly throws
the spotlight on our own issues, reactions and prejudices. Like Eeva-Liisa and I, you may well find yourself asking, “What
do I feel about this? What kind of God do I believe in? How, then, should I live?” The one thought you won’t be
left with is, “Well, that’s easy for her to say”…'
