Dancing for Your Life chronicles the true story of a beautiful, young Filipina who, in order to help her family financially, leaves her home in the quiet Philippines countryside to work as a go-go dancer in Hong Kong's red-light district of Wan Chai. It presents a rare first-person account that is thought provoking and controversial. Here is the “untold story” of faith, friendship, and sacrifice, but also of triumph and forgiveness. Target Audience: This book will hold special appeal for readers interested in gaining a behind-the-scenes look at the workings of an Asian go-go bar. It also lends itself to classroom or group discussion and would be a welcomed companion for courses in sociology, social science, cultural studies, gender studies, or spirituality. It provides a platform to explore the complexity of terms such as “freewill,” “freedom,” “duty,” “obligation,” “sacrifice,” and “exploitation.” “Straightforward. Honest. Storytelling that works because it bleeds truth on every page.” —Karl Taro Greenfeld, former Editor, Time Asia magazine

A warm and encouraging self-help book that draws inspiration and motivation from ballroom dancing. Precisely because the dance floor stands apart from the everyday world, allowing dancers to play, experiment and take on new roles, it also serves as a stage for human behavior. Antoinette Benevento, a former national ballroom dancing champion and co-owner of Fred Astaire Dance Studios, has been a student of that stage for 25 years. She has discovered that getting out on the dance floor is a powerful and empowering metaphor for living fully in all realms of life. Some of the tenets Antoinette Benevento lives, dances, and teaches by: -Persistence is a form of beauty -Give yourself permission to begin again--and again and again -If you're not willing to risk falling, you'll never learn to walk (or dance) -Desire is the energy that moves us forward in dance and in life -To dance well and to live fully, body and soul need to work together Building on the ballroom dancing craze that has swept the country, including the popularity of "Dancing with the Stars", this illuminating and highly readable book shows that what you learn on the dance floor can help you dance through life. ANTOINETTE BENEVENTO is co-owner of and National Training Director for the Fred Astaire Dance Studios and a former national ballroom dancing champion. EDWIN DOBB is a contributing editor of Harper's Magazine, and has written for numerous other national publications, including The New York Times Magazine, Vogue, and Discover.

Book Description Praise Dancing In The Rain In The Midst Of My Lifes Storm, (Little Things Makes A Big Difference) is intended to be an easy and gentle read, yet strongly effective. To you that read my book, I resign my liberty and I tell you my secrets. I will share with you the little things in my life that made a big difference. I am sharing my secrets with you and it is my sincere hope that you will tell someone. There have always been a certain feeling of power attached to the keeping of my secrets along with reciprocal bonds between my secrecy and emotions. Keeping my secrets made me an individual and now telling my secrets voluntarily forges a link with others and helps me become a better person. What you are about to read are secrets that I have jotted down in a journal, on sticky note or just carried around in my heart and head. My secret speaks of my hopes, dreams, love, gratitude and great passion for life. I share the stories of my lifes storms, my abilities over my disabilities, victory over defeat, advantages over disadvantages, and my desire to live a well live life over an unlived death. I am truly grateful and blessed from all the small things that made the big difference in my life. It is the experiences and learned lessons from the small things that I have learned how to praise dance in the rain until I can soar above my lifes storms. The little things are enormously significant. Each time I experience something I write it down in my journal and I ask myself two questions; What have I learned from it, and how can I use what I have learned to immediately improve my life? The content of this book is also the result of a quickening, energy and desire that translated from my heart through my head and now into this book. It offers inspiration, as well as spiritual, emotional and personal empowerment. It speaks of daily occurrences in my life, real life situations with others, humor and scriptures. This book imparts a message that Life is full of ups and downs, trail and tribulations, and challenges and struggles, which are called the storms of life. These storms presents opportunities, new levels of growth, new possibilities, wisdom, inner strength as well as an invitation for lips and heart to sing, arms to be spread as wings for soaring and feet to dance a graceful dance throughout the storm with the part of life that is stronger than the problem being faced. Every storm has a season and can be a result of Gods divine will as well as his permissive will. The storms in our lives provides the environment in which God reveals himself and where He wants us to learn to trust Him by taking Him at His Word. God does not always send the storm; however he will allows us to go through them for growth. He wants us to dance in the rain and soar above our storms as eagles. The Bible declares in Isaiah 40:31: But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.(KJV). The eagle has long been a symbol of strength, power and majesty, they face storms fearlessly. They are of the few birds that do not fear or attempt to escape the storm. They simply use the storm to lift them higher, they adjust their wings feathers for maximum altitude and they are able to fly high above the storm. The eagles eyes are protected by a clear membrane that protects their vision, which allows them to see clearly as they fly at high speed and when they are in a storm. That is exactly what God wants our experiences in the storm to be. God wants us to learn to face storms with vision instead of emotion. He wants us to keep a clear vision and maintain the right perspective in our storms by letting our problems and challenges cause us to rise higher and higher. God wants us to envision victory over our storms. Eagles are constantly cleaning their feathers, pulling out any that are ruffled or damage

The Diary of a Desperate Naija Woman in the Year 2011 is collection of random blogs written by Bola Essien-Nelson giving the reader an insight into her daily life. It captures, in her own unique conversational manner, the soars and dips, the losses and the victories, the whoops of joy and the frustrated cries of defeat, and pain of an ordinary woman desperately chasing after her extraordinary God. Bola hopes that, as you read this book, the words you encounter will make you smile a little, laugh out loud a lot, and maybe even tear up on occasion as you realise that you are not alone and that many of lifes experiences are universal. She hopes that you will read and come to a deeper understanding of the incredibly intense love God has for you and that this realisation will birth a new hunger in your belly to chase after God and to do so desperately.

If you are not waking up every day in love with your life, it is time to make a change. If you are not in love with the person you are with, if you are not in love with your job, if you are not in love with the station you inhabit, you must realize that you are staying out of fear. A fear of the unknown. You probably think these things are your safety net, but they are not. They are your leash. The leash that is holding you back from your happiness and truly experiencing life. It would be the words that my younger brother shared with me, "Great! You lost your job, now find your life," on the day I was terminated from my job that would inspire me to write this book. I wanted to keep a journal of my thoughts, experiences, and ideas every day until I was employed again. One day turned into a week, a week turned into a month, and a month would eventually turn into a year. It would be that year that would change my life forever. I was forced to face the reality of who I had become. I was able to manage to become a somewhat-successful person in life without becoming a complete person. Without truly knowing myself. My hope is that this book lands in your hands when you need it most. I think our priorities are all wrong. We are chasing wealth and material things, thinking those are what will give us a fulfilling existence. We are wrong, and it is time for each of us to find our life. Lloyd Hopkins
