Author Sally Clarkson is convinced that joy should be the rule of a woman’s life, rather than the exception. Drawing on the metaphor of dance, she inspires readers to nurture joy and to find delight in God’s presence, even in the challenging seasons of life.
A keeper. That was my first impression of this little book. Sally Clarkson shares with us the personal intimacy of a relationship with God-and how that relationship can motivate you to seek Him–finding joy in the most difficult times can be the hardest of all to accomplish, but with biblical instruction-possible. By seeking Him in the everday–not only seeking Him, but SEEING Him is it made possible.
I found myself reflecting over the past couple of years worth of heartaches as I read and realized there were joys along the way as well. Interwoven for my heart to heal. As you read, you will feel as if the writer has your “number”. Or at least I did! As you to check your heart and life for joy stops along the way, Sally will encourage you to embrace each day with renewed strength and hope for the journey!
Sally includes questions and points to ponder at the end of each chapter making this book a great tool for women’s Bible Study Groups!

hope for the journey…sounds like something we should all read!
Oh, I would love to read this book. I have just written a Bible study called “Joy in the Furnace” and this book sounds like it goes right along with the theme of this study…finding joy in the midst of our trials. I am legally blind, though, and have to have books either in audio or e-book format so that I can listen to them. The website said it was available as an e-book but I couldn't seem to find it. Do you know if it is or not? Thank you!
Sounds like a great book.
