Dancing with My Father (by) Sally Clarkson
This book asks the reader, "Is it possible to live as a joyful Christian in this fallen world?"
From the beginning of the book, the author focuses on having joy at the center of our lives. To find the joy of walking with God, minute by minute, it takes a personal commitment. The reader must choose joy. It takes effort and prayer but, the reader will reap great rewards.
What drew me to this particular book? My earthly father recently passed away. The last time I saw him we danced together. The joy and contentment I found by dancing with my father I have been able to transfer to my heavenly father.
As Sally states, "Walking in Joy is simply believing in Him, turning our eyes on Him, leaning on Him. Simple faith."
I feel that Sally does a good job portraying the tests we walk through on our way to joy. I would definitely recommend this book to someone who is seeking joy, or one with abundant joy, to encourage them in their walk with the Lord.
