Our History

  • God birthed this ministry deep into co-founder  Khristie Staines heart on the night of February 9, 2011. Holding her stillborn granddaughter changed her life forever. She and Lori Dowdy, her cousin and co-founder, wanted to provide support to families facing loss. 
  • March 15, 2016 became a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization

9th Annual FOTH Candlelighting and Remembrance Event

Our 9th Annual Footprints on the Heart Candlelighting and Remembrance Event will be held on October 10, 2020. This event is for anyone who has been affected by the loss of a baby in the first two years of life, or anyone wanting to learn more about our ministry and the free services we provide.

We have outgrown the Cartersville Bartow Chamber facility space and are excited to announce that this event will be held at the Cartersville Civic Center (giving us much more room for growth). 


Preparations are in full swing and we cannot wait to spend this evening with you all. 


 

We are absolutely ecstatic to announce that our guest speaker this year will be the amazing Sarah Philpott, PhD!  


A little about our guest speaker:

Sarah Philpott, PhD, (Sarah Philpott, Author) lives on a cattle farm in Tennessee. She is the mother of three young children (and one on the way!) and wife to one hard workin’ farmer (who has been her sweetheart since high school).

Sarah is the award-winning author of
Loved Baby: 31 Devotions Helping You Grieve and Cherish Your Child After Pregnancy Loss. This book earned notoriety as an ECPA Award Nominee (in the same category as Lysa Teurkerst, Ann Voskamp, Holley Gerth, and Chuck Swindoll), and has won both the Serious Writer Book of the Year, and Selah Book of the Year awards. Sarah also contributes to places such as the Today Show and Her View From Home. Her writings have been promoted by the Today Show.

Her next book, a farm life devotional, will be published by Harvest House in October of 2021.
