                                         We welcome guest writers to share their stories.

                                  Your contribution is valuable and will help to heal to others.

We've heard so many people say that they want to share their story but don't know how or where to start. 

       The Footprints team can help you to tell your story.


Why share your story?


Every experience serves a special purpose and we grow with each one.

By sharing your journey others can find strength and healing. It also brings the realization that they are not alone in their efforts to endure and survive. You can also offer a strong example of someone who overcame what they are currently facing. This alone can bring an abundance of hope to someone who is hurting.


You can also experience deeper healing while sharing your story and offering tips on how to get through.
