About the Book

The heart of Encountering God Through Dance is to inspire and equip believers to worship Jesus in wholehearted devotion—to express love without fear or shame.

Then David danced before the LORD with all his might… (2 Samuel 6:14)

The author's personal journey of devotion through dance has taken her worldwide and she wraps her exciting travels with a solid biblical framework for the importance of dance in the Kingdom of God—on earth, today.

Then young women will dance and be glad, young men and old as well. I will turn their mourning into gladness; I will give them comfort and joy instead of sorrow (Jeremiah 31:13)

While it is easy to understand why many Western churches have moved away from dance altogether for cultural reasons, Encountering God Through Dance provides compelling evidence for dance as a redeemable gift that was prevalent in Jewish culture as a means of worshiping God. Each chapter builds a sequential argument for dance and concludes with wisdom and insights about how to start a local dance team at your church.

God's presence and healing power are gifts to you through dance!
