Sometimes in life things happen that you can’t even expect. Maybe you had a dream that you were driven toward. Something you loved to do and always imagined that you could do it. But then life throws you a curve-ball. A layoff. The loss of a friendship or a love. An injury.
When things happen, we get to make a choice. We can either give up or dig deep, pray, and put one foot in front of the other. We can stay down or we can get up and dance past the obstacles in our life. Our faith can move us – faith in ourselves and faith in someone greater. It also helps to have someone who says “I believe in you.”
Our guest on this week’s podcast shared her journey in her life as a dancer, when an injury sidelined her, and how she made it through to discover that even when we have nothing left, God is enough. He is a good, good Father.
Oh yeah, she also gives us the scoop on Pure Barre, Zumba, and dance for fitness. (In case you’re like me and you have no idea.) I seriously think that I’m going to find myself a dance class around here soon and just jump in – but it’ll need to be a big one!
