“In My Father’s Footsteps” recounts in riveting detail the journey undertaken by John and Karen Resenburger, young college graduates and fresh newlyweds. With the world at their fingertips, they cling to each other as life unsympathetically begins to hand them trial after trial. John has big shoes to ll as he steps in to take his father’s place as senior pastor of his home church in Providence, Rhode Island. Karen is suddenly thrust into the public (and sometimes critical) eye and hesitates to fulfill her unfamiliar role as pastor’s wife. Walk with John as he recalls the tribulations he and his young bride experience, from an early miscarriage, to the death of a loved one, to the tantalizing threat of an affair.
