A friend sent this beautiful picture to Valarie because she thought it would mean a lot to her. It did! Valerie found it beautiful and added the perfect scripture to it.
Valerie's daughter owns a Ballet school and founded the dance ministry Ballet Rejoice. This is dedicated to her, Tessa White, who has been dancing for God since she was a little girl.
Ever since Tessa was very young, she loved to dance. An artist at heart, she was either drawing, painting or dancing…that is unless she had a book in hand. At the age of 12 she was reading her Bible and she went to her mom (Valarie) and said that she felt certain scriptures were for her. From that point, on she started dancing in churches and going to summer dance camps that were geared towards Christian ministry. When she graduated from high school, she took on owning a ballet studio and has been involved in this endeavor ever since.
The ballets that Tessa creates are beautiful, and we are always so incredibly blessed by them. Owning a business takes a lot of work, and there are definitely challenges along the way. However, the blessings far outweigh the challenges, as over the years Ballet Rejoice has influenced so many lives, oftentimes bringing tears and long-lasting eternal impacts. We know this is because of God, and His light & love being shared through this calling. Thank you, Tessa, for sharing your heart through dance, blessing us and giving glory to God! We love you. 🌷

When you pray, "God, make Your desires mine," He will inspire and accomplish that which He wants you to do. Make it a daily prayer. Keep believing. And give God the glory!
Thank you, Valarie, for allowing me to share this story.
