Release Date: October 2009
Read one woman’s story of hope and encouragement despite struggle, suffering and ordinary life challenges. Alisa’s life hasn't been easy. Like most, her past is filled with ordinary (yet considerable) challenges -common things not easily overcome. Looking back, she sees struggle and suffering, but she also finds much hope mingled with it. Alisa can see the hope because she has kept an account of it: on papers with a pencil, upon canvases with a paintbrush, using torn papers, pastels, glitter and ink. Reflecting on this account, Alisa discovers that someone has been with her through it all: an ever-present, personal and loving God. Dancing in the Doghouse is Alisa’s inspirational story of hope. She shares it for the chance that others will see its hope, know it and share it too.
Testimonies: The Power of Inspirational Christian Stories was formerly titled Dancing in the Doghouse (2009). Book content is identical. Only the cover and title have been changed. Both editions are available on Amazon.
