Dancing with My Father
Sally Clarkson

From the back of the book:

Do you sometimes feel victimized by circumstances? Are you overwhelmed by weariness, fear, or discouragement? Do you wonder, Where can I go to claim the promise of Jesus that my joy could be made full?
   When trusted author and mentor Sally Clarkson noticed a lack of joy in her own life, she realized how easy it can be, especially for women with overloaded to-do lists, to feel weighed down by drudgery and disappointment. But rather than slogging through her days, Sally wanted to know the delight of God’s presence. She began prayerfully exploring how to cultivate deep-rooted joy even into the midst of difficult seasons.
   In this warm and wise book, she invites you to experience for yourself what happens when you trust God to lead you into a life of anticipation, passion, and purpose.
    Weaving biblical insights with real-life stories that reflect every Crhsitian woman’s deepest longings, Dancing with My Father reveals how any woman, in any circumstance, can daily live in beauty and grace, joy and peace.

My opinion:

It just didn’t speak to me, is that okay to admit? I appreciated the author’s style of writing and I enjoyed the stories and examples throughout the book, it’s just not where I am right now. Maybe it’s because I am in my own rebellion at the moment, I don’t know. I did like that she has questions at the end of each chapter for the reader to go deeper and discover more of what the Bible has to say.

With chapters that are titled, “The Search for Joy in a Less-Than-Perfect World”, “Dancing Through the Twists and Turns of Life”, and “Listening for the Music of God’s Voice”; I know that I will revisit this book and it will speak to me. The author gives sound Biblical advice in a practical and applicable way. I would recommend this book and will read it again, soon.
