product description

The title of this beautiful book was inspired by a great quote from Vivian Greene: “Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass…it’s about learning how to dance in the rain!”

How true it is! We all face adversity in our life. However, it’s not the adversity, but how we react to it that will determine the joy and happiness in our lives. During tough times, do we spend too much time feeling sorry for ourselves, or can we, with gratitude, learn how to dance in the rain?

It almost sounds too simple to feel important, but one word—gratitude—can change your attitude and thus your life, forever. Sarah Ban Breathnach may have said it best: “When we choose not to focus on what is missing from our lives but are grateful for the abundance that’s present… We experience heaven on earth.”

Mac Anderson and BJ Gallagher have written a classic on “the awesome power of gratitude.” No matter what your circumstances are, you will read this book and feel extremely blessed!

This book is life changing! I enjoyed reading it so much that I have given copies out as gifts to others that I know can appreciate the wonderful wisdom. I always keep a couple of copies on hand to share at the appropriate moment. Everyone has a time when they need to be either introduced or reminded to dance in the rain.....

    I loved the quotes, stories, and poems. They truly touched my heart and soul and renewed my spirit. We have so much to be thankful for and as often happens, we don't always see what is 'right in front of us'. We should all stop and take the time to be grateful.

        This book is exactly what is needed when faced with a difficult life challenge. It doesn't minimize the difficulties you may face, rather, it helps you be mindful to the things which may support and strengthen you.
