The founder of the Children's Defense Fund and author of  The Measure of Our Success  presents prayers and meditations to inspire all those, such as parents, teachers, and ministers, who work on the behalf of children.

Marian Wright Edelman, founder and president of the Children's Defense Fund, is one of the most important moral leaders in America. Her first book,  The Measure of Our Success  was a #1  New York Times  bestseller--spending 16 weeks on the list, selling more than 450,000 copies and garnering spectacular praise from Hillary Clinton, Maya Angelou, and Oprah Winfrey.  Guide My Feet  continues her crusade for the well-being of America's children by providing a counterweight to the lesson society is teaching this generation of children--to be soulless takers instead of empowered givers.

Guide My Feet  is a collection of prayers and meditations gathered from Edelman's own holiday rituals and experiences and the writings of such inspiring leaders as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Gandhi, and Frederick Douglass. It urges readers to commit to and pray for strength and patience, and offers solace and direction for parents troubled by the commercialism and violence running rampant in today's society. Filled with wisdom, compassion and understanding, it provides an important spiritual and moral resource all caregivers can turn to as they strive to instill values, integrity, self-discipline and faith in children.
