Dancing Softly

“We are not powerless specks of dust drifting around in the wind, blown by random destiny. We are each of us like beautiful snowflakes, unique and born for a specific purpose.”Elisabeth Kübler-Ross, M.D.

My new book, Dancing Softly is out....available now for sale at Write2Empower or for digital download at  

It's a story of hope and overcoming...A story about the resilience of the human spirit and the touch of a gentle God.  

Sixteen-year-old Jamie DeSouza runs away from home to escape from years of sexual and emotional abuse. Living on the streets of Toronto, she survives the only way she knows how – by becoming tough, hard, angry...a fighter. When her freedom is taken away, Jamie finds herself locked in a psychiatric ward where she struggles to maintain hope.

Caught in the mental health system, Jamie is stripped of her dignity and even basic human rights. It’s in that dark place she learns to fight back in ways that ultimately free her. The people Jamie meets along the way teach her that dancing softly in life is far more powerful than the use of violence.

A powerful story of hope and courage that shows us nothing is impossible to overcome….”
Melvina Walter, Executive Director of The Halton Women's Centre

“Dancing Softly is an insight into the hearts and minds of people who struggle with mental illness. I couldn’t put it down.”
Sasha Stevenson

“A great read indeed! Dancing Softly restores faith and inspires hope. Read it and know that perseverance, diligence and integrity always pay off. Dancing Softly encourages everyone to let their inner light shine. It’s a message we need to aspire to every day!” Savina Rotella

Congratulations sister Nikki for another book you had written for Him! I am still encouraged by your book "In the Eye of Deception" knowing how powerful His transformation is to those who truly come to Him broken. I pray this book will encourage those who need to know His love and grace. Blessings to you sister and praying all is well.

"Dancing softly, more powerful than violence." Very thought provoking. I can apply it to so many things in my life. Thank-you for this post.

Congratulations on your new book! The topic has becoming a far too common occurrence these days. I know many people who have had to deal with this — including my own mom.
