Dancing Through Life – Book Review
If you’ve ever watched Dancing With The Stars – a show where celebrities are paired with non-professional dancers on live TV and judged each week on their performance ability and popularity alike – you know what a pressure cooker of an environment that show can be.
Now imagine going on the show and trying do everything that the show requires of you to the best of your ability, while upholding your Christian values and being a witness for God in an environment that is not known for embracing people of faith.
Sound like an impossible task?
For most of us, it would be – but with God, all things are possible, as Candace Cameron Bure discovered during her time as a contestant on Season 18 of Dancing With The Stars!
Now, Candace takes us on a behind-the-scenes tour of DWTS as she shares the details on the obstacles she faced as she rose from an inexperienced underdog on the show – as well as the challenges she had to overcome on her journey to a successful semi-finalist – in her new book Dancing Through Life – Steps Of Courage And Conviction !
It’s a compelling story with exclusive photographs that you won’t want to miss!
On DWTS, Candace – who many of us know from her role as D.J. Tanner on Full House – was partnered with Mark Ballas, a partnership she was thrilled about. From the start, she shared her convictions and boundaries with him about what she would and would not do on the show. She was committed to giving 100% – but in a way that honored Christ, her husband. her family, and her Christian values.
In Dancing Through Life, Candace writes:
I knew up front that I didn’t want to just vault across the DWTS stage without a plan. I wanted to show what it looked like to live within the boundaries that God gives us for our good.
In each chapter of Dancing Through Life, Candace shares how each week of the show stretched her personally, professionally, and spiritually, and challenged her to embrace and live out her faith before millions.
My time on DWTS is only a small part of my story. Over and over I learned that this was not a journey about dancing or about being on a television show. This was about learning to live with conviction in all areas of my life.
Dancing Through Life is an inspiring book that will not only delight fans of Candace and DWTS, but will challenge you to examine, embrace, and fully live out your own personal convictions.
I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.
