Rarely do you see a book that offers passion, testimonies, and biblical expertise so others can be fully equipped. Find out how this Finnish dancer has danced throughout the nations and how hope and healing can be brought to yourself, your family, your church, or your nation. I highly recommend this book – a must-read for those who pursue dance and those who want to see it in their church!

Encountering God Through Dance will not only powerfully encourage the reader to move deeper into expressing his or her heart to God, but it will also, in a life-changing way, help the mind grasp in detail what is means to worship the Father in Spirit and in truth. In 1994 I received a vision from God I called “The Vision of the Dancing Bride.” It still continues to grip me 16 years later. This is the book I wish I could have read back then to more fully appreciate what the Lord said to me then and is still, eternally, calling all of us into – a lifestyle of abandonment to the lover of our souls!
