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!

Dancing In The Rain
This was very well done and speaks to the need to go with the challenges life offers and use them to exercise and learn from them. Everything is an opportunity and some of the hardest parts of our life mold us to handle the rest of our life. Pictures were beautiful and the thoughts profound.

    Learning To Dance In The Rain
    I purchased this book for a friend who used this expression at the end of her emails...." Life's not about Waiting for the Storm to Pass...It's about Learning to Dance in the Rain" . This was her signature expression and it was meaningful to her. She responded by saying..." Gratitude is Powerful !! " Your series of books are highly inspirational.
