“Handprints”: a beautiful testimony of a great friendship that carried one through the turbulence of life. “Handprints” is the creation of published author Marie Phero, a retired elementary teacher, wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother from southern New Jersey. She loves to spend time with her family and treasures her summers in Maine at her cabin, where she connects with God through nature.

Phero shares, “Did you ever have someone leave their handprint on your soul? Did you ever have a friend that changed your life forever? This is a story about a friendship that changed my life forever. If you have or had a dear friend in your life that you cherished, I hope you can share my need to share what this dear friend did for me. I am not the same person since I met her.

“She took a frightened woman lacking self-confidence and transformed me into a self-confident, daring woman. I want this book to be a thank you to a strong, enduring woman who faced so many challenges and trials in her life but still found time to be a devoted friend. She always had time to listen, laugh, cry, and shout when I needed her to.

“I would like this book to encourage those who have a dear friend to always make sure you take time to spend with your dear one. Time is precious, and before we know it, we are longing for moments that we so casually took advantage of. If you are one of the lucky ones who have someone who has left their handprint on your soul, I hope you feel this book in the depths of your soul. If not, I pray that the future may lead this special friend to you. I have been blessed to have this friend’s handprint on my soul. Every day she continues to press her hand on my soul.”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Marie Phero’s new book captures the timeless treasure of friendships and the impact one can have on someone through their presence alone.

Within this book is a story of best friends who never left each other’s sides, even when their lives were filled with storms.
