Dancing with My Father by Sally Clarkson

There have been many times in my life, and I am sure in many or your lives, when we ask ourselves, "Why does everything have to be so hard?"
In her book, Dancing with My Father, Sally Clarkson tries to help us find the answer to this question.
Written partly as a memoir and partly as a self help book, the author, in a warm and loving way, strives to challenge us to trust in God to lead us to the gift of everyday joy, no matter what the circumstances we face.
I especially enjoyed the reflection and prayers at the end of each chapter.
With such a shortage of joy in the world today, Dancing with My Father shows us how developing a prayerful, loving, and fatherly relationship with God is the way to discover, or re-discover the joy that can be had in this world on our journey to the everlasting joy we will have with God in heaven.
This book was provided for review by the Waterbrook Multnomah Publishing Group.
