Dancing with My Father Dancing with My Father by Sally Clarkson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


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.


Dancing With My Father is a refreshing read on how we can experience joy in our lives. Each chapter was encouraging and made me think about where joy is or is not in my life. Clarkson writes about dancing with the Father and how He intends for us to have joy in all aspects of our lives, not just at certain times or places.

I especially appreciate this quote from page 55: "Not realizing it, I had built values in my heart and a foundation for a kingdom that was pretty much dependent on this world and on people rather than on God."

This book is a wonderful book for anyone woman to read at any stage of life. Sally shares her own expectations and experiences that we can all relate to and ends each chapter with a series of questions that will help you think through the content and apply it to your own life. Dancing With My Father is not about being happy, but rather about finding true joy even in trials, suffering, and in difficult relationships.
