Editorial Reviews

*** Item Includes Short DVD Movie*** The title of this beautiful book was inspired by a great quote from Vivian Green..."Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass...it's about learning how to dance in the rain!"

How true it is! We all face adversity in our life. However, it's not the adversity, but how we react to it that will determine the joy and happiness in our lives. During tough times, do we spend too much time feeling sorry for ourselves, or can we, with gratitude...learn how to dance in the rain?

It almost sounds too simple to feel important, but one word...gratitude, can change your attitude, and thus your life, forever. Sarah Breathnach said it best...

"When we choose not to focus on what is missing from our lives but are grateful for the abundance that's present... We experience heaven on earth."

Mac Anderson and BJ Gallagher have written a classic on "the awesome power of gratitude." No matter what your circumstances are, you cannot read this book and not feel extremely blessed!

Mac, the founder of Simple Truths, had this to say about his co-author:

"BJ Gallagher is one of the most talented and creative writers I've ever known. I was honored to work with her to create this wonderful book."

Learning to Dance in the Rain is beautifully designed, with great stories and great quotes. It makes a terrific gift for any occasion; it can take you from feeling down to feeling blessed, in less than 30 minutes!

• Now with a brand new DVD movie based on the poem "Weather Report" by BJ Gallagher.
• An inspiring and beautiful gift book full of wonderful stories, quotes, poems and insight to help you reflect on the positives in life.
• A wonderful gift book to give to someone in need of encouragement - it can take you from feeling down to feeling blessed.
