Book Review: Dancing with My Father


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.

Review: "Joy" is a lovely word that we all want to experience but often cannot find because we tend to focus our attention on our circumstances, trials, disappointment, and discontent. Dancing with My Father helps guide us to let go of all that and hold on to God’s hand, instead. "Let your soul dance with delight in God." Each chapter ends with questions and/or suggestions to help you find your rhythm in God’s joy. I enjoyed reading this book and jotting down notes on my diary. In search of true lasting joy, the author relies on God and His Word. She learns to look at things through God’s eyes with eternal perspectives and embrace childlike faith. Let us all choose to dance with our Heavenly Father, the Source of joy, who loves us and is always ready to lead us into a life full of joy. Will you follow His steps and enjoy the dance?
