Dance Through the Storms: 22 Faith Filled Reflections to Maintain Your Joy

Dance Through the Storms

Understand that in our lives, we will have trouble, but you can still remain joyful in the most painful situations. Brianna speaks to the loss of her mother, being rejected in dance, and using her faith to overcome every obstacle in her life.

Dance Through the Storms will provide inspiration and guidance to readers who may feel like there is no hope during or after the storm. Brianna also wants her readers to hold fast to the promises of God and believe that on the other side of the storm, there is a beautiful testimony.

“Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” -Philippians 1:6
