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!

Learning To Dance In The Rain
When I read the introduction I knew this was one book I had to own. It far exceeded my expectation. I've found since owning it when I need a little boost of inspiration I can turn to any page and get just what I need,

      Learning To Dance In The Rain
      Probably the most encouragement and heart warming book you have. This last order was my second shipment--I give it as gifts when someone I know needs an uplifting message, and most any other occasion.
