Dancing Through Life: Steps of Courage and Conviction by Candace Cameron Bure - Book Review

23493059Dancing Through Life: Steps of Courage and Conviction by Candace Cameron Bure
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Published: July 5th 2015 by B&H Books

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.

I didn't watch this season of Dancing with the Stars (I used to love it but gave up on it years ago) so this was all new to me. Every chapter when she would mention that week's dance I didn't know how it went or if she would proceed.
She definitely had me on that, I really got caught up wanting to know how it went, (as if I couldn't just look it up).

I enjoyed reading about her journey and struggles in trying something new. I also liked hearing how her beliefs tied in and had an effect on it all.
Though I will admit to not entirely understanding what she was going on about at times.

It's a great behind the scenes look at both her time on Dancing with the Stars and also just her life.
