Book: Dance into Destiny
Author: Sherri L. Lewis
Review: June 21, 2008
Dance into Destiny written by Sherri L. Lewis is an awesome story line. It has a little bit of everything; love, how past relationships can affect current ones , finding true friendship, Christian dating and a lot more.
The way that Sherri wrote about what it means to build a relationship with God and how she used the characters to explain it was very realistic and inspirational. If you have ever asked yourself,” Why was I created?” or “What is God’s pre-ordained purpose for me?”, then this novel will definitely get the creative juices flowing. As you read this novel, I pray that your purpose will manifest itself.
However, I consider my life worth nothing to me, if only I may finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the gospel of God’s grace.
A purposeless socialite and a purpose-driven church mouse form an unlikely friendship that launches them on a journey of destiny and purpose.
Keeva Banks is in danger of flunking out of grad school – again. She can’t seem to get it together because she doesn’t really know why she’s in school. She’s in serious need of a sense of purpose to give meaning to her life. Shara Anderson has that sense of purpose through her relationship with God, but could use some balance in her Christian walk. The two women meet, and their lives are forever changed.
Follow them as they rediscover lost dreams, fall in and out of love, and triumph over past wounds in this story of friendship, love and pursuing an intimate relationship with God to fulfill purpose and destiny.
