This is the first book I have read by Ken Gire. He is a gifted writer, a former editor for Chuck Swindoll's Insight for Living. In this book Ken compares the intimate relationship with Christ as a dance. I have several quotes below that spoke to my heart. I trust they will also speak to your heart.

. . . the Christian life is about intimacy, not technique. p. 7
Before Jesus called the disciples to ministry, he called them to intimacy. Following came first, fishing came later. Before he called them
Our relationship with Christ is that of an intimate dance

That I would love You more by the end of each day than when I awoke

Truth: Instead of “tinkering” with my soul and stressing about the possibility of failure in spiritual growth, rather focus on jesus and fall in love with Him and as You do that He will transform and provide and come through for you. Matt. 6:24-34

“If we are indifferent to the art of dancing, we have failed to understand, not merely the supreme manifestation fo physical life
I love Ken Gire

Each time I read this book (have read several times!) I fall in love with my Beloved, Jesus all over again!
Using the illustrations of music and dance, you will find your soul soaring with every word!
