Last week, I shared my thoughts on Reshaping It All by Candace Cameron Bure. I’m not sure how it worked out that I ended up with not one – but two! – of Candace’s books within a few weeks of each other; but, I did. And I’m glad. This week, I’d like to share my thoughts on Dancing Through Life.
About the Book
Candace Cameron Bure has grown up before our eyes and we’ve watched as she’s balanced life in Hollywood with her faith for many years. But that all reached new heights when she was given the opportunity to join the cast of Dancing With the Stars. Being on the show was one of her dreams come true; and with that dream came the opportunity to display her Christian faith in front of millions of people, through an intense season of stretching beyond her limits, and to run the race God gave her with joy and perseverance.
Join Candace as she reflects on the self-discovery that came through leaping out of her comfort zone. Go behind the scenes and experience the highs and lows, the roadblocks, and the personal victories. Hear straight from her heart on tough lessons learned about grace, rejection, perfectionism, disappointment, accountability, dealing with criticism, and more. Through God’s strength, and with the help of endless support from her family and friends, see how Candace stayed true to herself and publicly lived out her faith in Christ all the way to the finale.
How do you stand with conviction in your world? Where does your courage come from when faced with challenges? How do you live out your faith on a daily basis despite opposition? Your stage probably isn’t in Hollywood and the challenges you are facing may not be on live television, but they are no less real. Come along with Candace as she shares how she found the courage to stand with conviction on one of the largest platforms of her life.

Heidi Says . . .
I loved this book! We don’t have cable TV at our house, so we’ve never really gotten into Dancing with the Stars. I wasn’t sure if this book would be all about Candace’s experience on the show, or if I’d find it interesting or not. While the book is based on her experience on the show, it is SO MUCH MORE.
Candace takes her experiences in learning various dance steps and the hard work and struggles that were a part of that experience and she ties them in with our relationship with God. I got totally lost in each chapter and was able to apply each one to my own personal life, even though I’m not a dancer and have no clue what that experience must have been like.
I enjoyed reading about her time on the show and how she stood firm on her conviction to be a Christian role model while she was participating. I appreciated learning about the struggles and the work involved in learning the dances. I appreciated the way her partner respected her stance on modesty, etc. and planned dance routines that Candace was comfortable with.
As I read the chapters, I would pull up the videos of each week’s performances on YouTube and follow along. It was fun.
And, when I finished the final chapter and put the book down, I felt such a positive charge. Candace is a great encouragement!
I would highly recommend picking up this book. Whether you’re a DWTS fan or not, a fan of Candace or not, you’re sure to be encouraged in your walk with the Lord.
This book will be available for purchase this month. In the meantime, find out more or preorder at B&H Publishing today.
