Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "In this uplifting debut, choreographer Gibson reveals the practices that have helped her realize her purpose and pursue her creative dreams. She encourages Christians to stay in touch with their passion, which is a gift from God, and details steps meant to help readers dream boldly, discern one's purpose, develop sustainable training practices, and find a support team. She shares her career trajectory of dancing as part of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, being a background dancer for concerts and videos, and eventually becoming choreographer to such artists as Alicia Keys, Lady Gaga, and Katy Perry. Weaved throughout are examples of how she learned to not allow her dreams to be derailed by those who didn't share her vision. Importantly, she differentiates having faith from working hard ("having faith in your gift doesn't mean you get to just sit by the phone and wait for the audition") and stresses the need for patience and choosing joy: "The world sells us this idea that if you're doing things right, your life is supposed to unfold perfectly. That's not how it works; it is a process." This insightful, refreshingly straightforward guide will appeal to creative-minded Christians. (Mar.)"
