Dancing with My Father by Sally Clarkson

Angie's Take: I really like the thoughtful way Sally Clarkson presents the concepts in this book. The she follows up each chapter with insightful questions that help me to really think about my own thought processes and beliefs. I love the little girl dancing on the cover. I could easily see the song from Mercy Me, I Can Only Imagine, playing in the background. The sense of dancing before the Lord is wonderful and captivating. The author has a solid understanding of how to present being filled with joy through out her book. I plan on taking this one to my Wednesday Bible Study group and asking if they'd like to use it in our weekly meetings. Lovely book.



Summary:  
The reality of living in a broken, fallen world can leave women feeling overcome by fear, guilt, and weariness. Many develop “sawdust souls,” numb to any sense of joy.

In this warm and wise book, author Sally Clarkson invites readers to take God’s hand and let Him lead them into a life of anticipation, passion, and purpose. With the voice of a trusted mentor, she reveals how, by getting in tune with the rhythm of God’s presence, women can nurture an inner attitude of anticipation and celebration even in the stressful seasons of life.

Through rich biblical insights woven with real-life stories, women will be inspired to recapture a spirit of joy as they follow God’s lead on the dance floor of life.
