YOU CAN CHOOSE JOY Life can be tough. Stress, disappointment, heartache, hurt-all are part of the human condition. But while pain is unavoidable, misery is optional The freeing message of You Gotta Keep Dancin' is that, no matter what your circumstances, you can choose to be joyful. Tim Hansel speaks as one who knows. For the past ten years he has lived with continual physical pain, the result of a climbing mishap in the Sierras. But You Gotta Keep Dancin' is not just another story of a Christian who had an accident. It is a powerful account of God's working in one man's physical and emotional suffering, helping him discover the real meaning of joy. Tim doesn't treat lightly the difficulties of anyone's life. In his words, "this book is in no way meant to diminish the awfulness of pain, tragedy, and affliction. I don't want to 'celebrate pain, ' but more deeply understand the dignity of what can happen in it, through it, and because of it." Tim Hansel is the founder of Summit Expedition, a wilderness survival school for individuals seeking deeper experiences with themselves, others, and God. In great demand as a speaker and seminar leader, Tim is also the author of the best-selling When I Relax I Feel Guilty and What Kids Need Most in a Dad. He makes his home in San Dimas, California, with his wife. You have changed my sadness into a joyful dance. Psalm 30:11

life-changing Sep 17, 2008
I picked this book up on a whim on a used book table, and could not put it down until I finished it. What a wonderful, encouraging storyteller. We all face pain in one way or another, and are afraid we might have pain in the future. This book takes away all fear of pain and helps to show how to find joy in the midst of anything. Very powerful, a must-read for everyone.

Changed my life! Sep 4, 2007
I read this book after being in a wheelchair for a year. Even though I had to spend another year in that chair, my outlook on life changed completely! I am now buying copies for others who are in the same circumstances. I would recommend this book to anyone who is suffering from depression or discouragement due to a debilitating injury or illness! Life is not over! A new chapter has just begun!
You Gotta Keep Dancin' May 17, 2007
Tim's story is amazing. He is an unbelievable man who has persevered through many trials. I liked the beginning of the book better than the latter parts. The part where he focuses on his story is much more interesting and captivating. A good, easy read.
Inspiring Gift Nov 10, 2006
I keep this book at all times to give to friends who have had surgery or any kind of physical "ailment." It is very inspiring; and I recommend it even to those who are well!
