Through Life Giving an inside scoop on what her time on Dancing With The Stars was like, Candace shares how each step of her journey shaped her, and how she learned to stay true to herself, live with conviction, and show love to those around her.Written with incredible wisdom and humor, I found Dancing Through Life to be insightful, encouraging, and fun to read And while easy to read I read it in one day , it is not simply an attempt to paint her life as all perfume and pretty dresses Candace shares some of her personal struggles with identity, finding balance in life, and learning to break free from the shackles of chronic people pleasing and simply dance for an audience of One, on and off the dance floor.I particularly enjoyed Candace s discussion of modesty in Dancing Through Life, as it was a refreshing perspective that was concerned withthan hemlines and necklines.I would highly recommend Dancing Through Life, and believe it is Candace s strongest book to date, and I look forward to reading her future work, and sharing it with friends I would give Dancing Through Life an A.Disclosure of Material Connection I received this book free from the publisher, B H Publishing Group I was not required to write a positive review The opinions I have expressed are my own I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission s 16 CFR, Part 255 The authenticity of this book was palpable The voice from Bure is not of an unrelatable Hollywood type Even though she is a nationally known actress and New York Time s Bestselling author, she never places herself on a pedestal talking down to her audience She reveals her encounters with deep seated matters that were brought to light through her journey on DWTS One that most of us can relate to is the fear of disappointing others I expected this to be an enjoyable memoir type of read, but w The authenticity of this book was palpable The voice from Bure is not of an unrelatable Hollywood type Even though she is a nationally known actress and New York Time s Bestselling author, she never places herself on a pedestal talking down to her audience She reveals her encounters with deep seated matters that were brought to light through her journey on DWTS One that most of us can relate to is the fear of disappointing others I expected this to be an enjoyable memoir type of read, but was surprised to find myself growing throughout the book, learning lessons with Candace One that really sticks is that living life with conviction isn t easy and it doesn t always feel rewarding Candace took the stand on DWTS to dress modestly which many Christians respected, however, there were some who said her dress was not modest enough Some inappropriately lambasted her for what they saw as a violation While on set, she was having difficulties in the dressing department, ensuring there was a littlefabric on the attire they presented her Some teasing comments were inserted from the crew because being modest in the Hollywood arena is a little unusual Who knew On a similar thread, Candace speaks candidly on the virulent attacks she s faced on social media both while on the DWTS and off She sends off an update with a click of the button, and with only a short time elapsing, she returns to her social media networks to find a war zone Malicious commenters are berating her, then there is the opposing force blasting the ones who are targeting Candace What s worse is that both dueling parties are usually people who wear the title Christian Candace laments on how this could only deter people from the Christian faith, and how she s had to shake off the criticism over the years She uses three Biblical points to caution why this approach isn t the best This section of respectably wise boundaries would be good for anyone with a social media account to read not just out of respect to the celebs, but to anyone s own personal social media networks I love her quote on trying to please others I decided that I d rather be the best Christian with all my flaws and be true to my walk than to live my life so that other people will feel like I m making the right choices You can zip on over to to

of her experience with the show, what happens behind the scenes little glimpses at what we didn t see This even made me like Mark evenas we got to see deeper into how he was the partner leading Candace on this journey.But what makes this book so cool, as every dance goes on, she finds a way to connect it with a growing spiritual thought for us all to learn from in areas of our own lives I loved the blend of the worlds the teachings from this.I smiled throughout the book at the scripture used how it all applied so perfectly to the experience she went through on the dance floor even had tears come to my eyes reading parts The chapter where Candace messed up Mark was talking her through the dance encouraging all the way my favorite chapter of the book.If you love Candace if you love DWTS you can t pass up this book Maybe I would ve liked this bookif I was religious I have nothing against religion and most of my family and friends are religious But this book drove me crazy I kind of felt like she was so worried about how she would look to others and staying true to God that she was never herself Throughout the book she kept making it sound like since she s a wife and mother that she can t be sexy That s absurd What kind of example are you setting to girls who look up to you if you are giving of Maybe I would ve liked this bookif I was religious I have nothing against

you are giving of the impression that you can t be a good wife and mother and be sexy all at the same time I m not saying that you should go all slutty JLo, but stressing out over a Little Mermaid costume because it s going to show your middle is crazy I m all for modesty, but you re on a dancing show, it s ok to show a little skin Do what makes you comfortable I was also annoyed with her whining about never having time for her kids Welcome to the real world Parents work and can t always be there Your kids will understand If my mom had to go away for three weeks to make thousands of dollars, I d survive It s not going to be forever And you shouldn t preach about how eating healthy is important to you when I just saw on Instagram a few weeks ago that you do juice cleanses That s not healthy If she s happy in life, good for her But personally I think she sounds like a party pooper Having read and appreciated Candace s previous books, I knew that I would take the time to read her latest, Dancing Through Life I told myself when she was on Dancing With the Stars that I would watch every week, vote, and root for her I say this every season for every star that I love with the most Watching usually doesn t last long as I watch a ton of scripted TV but she was always in my prayers and I continued to root for her and vote So it was absolutely fascinating to read this memoir

and I continued to root for her and vote So it was absolutely fascinating to read this memoir and get her take on the experience week by week What a break down I devoured this book in two sittings Would have been one if I hadn t started reading before work If you re looking for juicy scoop in this book, look elsewhere The behind the scenes action for Candace s journey was truly a battle of the mind This was a dancing competition but it s just as much, if notof a mental competition as well and the competition is between one self I love how Candace shares this journey of conviction, this tug of war with fear and confidence and getting to the root of it all Her candor, her humility is what I love so much about her books She s on this walk of life just like the rest of us and she uses her platform to show the grace that gets her through it all and that is beautiful.It really was beautiful to read It was refreshing to hear an actor candidly admit that they are used to hearing and professionally speaking, crave praise and how problematic that became as 1 a perfectionist and 2 a human being It might be eye opening for some to hear about her being overwhelmed, switching from a taped TV set or closed movie set to a live show format but in that she talks about accepting the challenge and using this opportunity to let the Christ in her shine in front of millions like never before I greatly appreciated how much she talked about the unhealthy and unrealistic standards many Christians hold each other and or themselves up to and how damaging that is but that it is possible to rise above that nonsense Candace touched beautifully on the beauty within and letting God s beauty within us shine.She talks about the fear of failure, about success, having the right attitude and choosing joy, the power of grace, and she gives an abundance of truth bombs if you will I admit, I got teary eyed reading chapter ten All I will say is, God is always there He is always there And that s really the underlying theme throughout the book because the title says it all Steps of Courage and Conviction but it all comes down our being in Christ, Christ being in us, and shedding a light on that Talk about an encouraging word I was truly amazed by this journey and blessed by the words in this book and would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a good encouragement, no matter your faith or DWTS viewing habits This is a quick read filled with so much goodness and I truly believe that there is a message in here for you that will take a weight off It sure did for me Hmm.I m thinking this is slightly higher than a 2 star for me but, not by much I like Candace even though I don t share many of her views I read her book Balancing it All last year and liked it well enough, but this one was kind of messy It seemed to go all over the place in each chapter I know she likes to incorporate her faith into her books, which, even though I don t follow the same faith as her doesn t really bother me, but in some places it just didn t really mesh with what she was Hmm.I m thinking this is slightly higher than a 2 star for me but, not by much I like Candace even though I

Enjoyed reading this book I was so impressed with the way Candace can relate to all of us at different levels and tie scripture in to help us understand that, though people watch us, our journey is ultimately between ourselves and God Engaging stories about her time on the Dancing with the Stars show will keep you turning the pages with an increasing admiration for what it takes to stand firm

myself giggling like a school girl even though my iPad wasn t giggling back I m sure there s an App for that And onthan one occasion a joyful tear or two splattered my screen.DTL is a beautiful reflection of Bure s time in the Word It is saturated with Scripture, none of which feels forced, cheery picked, or out of place Each Scripture seems to have been placed in pages of Bure s heart before she placed it in the pages of her book A testament to a woman after God s own heart who s true desire is to be salt and light.I did not want DTL to end and I highly recommend Dancing Through
