Publisher's Description

With a bit of Latina sassiness and an amiga-to-amiga style, author and speaker Eckles encourages women to accept God's call to dance, no matter what challenges life may bring. Readers will be inspired by her candor and resilience as she relates how God's grace and love sustained her faith and hope through everything from financial crisis to infidelity in her marriage, and from losing her eyesight to experiencing the death of one of her sons and seeing his killer acquitted.

    Great Guide For All God's Dancers

    "Dip your tortillia in some quacamole and take a bite, you're going to need some energy to swallow this truth." - If you don't enjoy this book, you are not ready to dance with God.

    Simply Salsa was an enjoyable read. Janet's writing style give homage to her hispanic roots by including bits of Spanish throughout the text. It's the type of Christian living book that would be a great choice to take on vacation, lighthearted enough to fun yet still rich with scripture.

    Janet tackles lifes tough topics by merging humor with God's truths. Tough questions like the following are addressed:

    1. Why me?

    2. When God is Silent

    3. Shattered Dreams

    4. Our Ugly Past

    5. Fear of the Future

    Through stories of various women and Janet's personal testimony, you will learn how to dance together with God to the rhythm of His promises of healing and restoration.

    This book is an amazing read! From the first chapter Janet had me hooked! Her beautiful prose is both eloquent and inspirational, with a clever use of metaphor in its message of both faith and trust in the Lord in all things. She peppers the book throughout with her unique Latina flair! Janet has the uncanny ability to make her reader feel as if she in intimately familiar with one's own personal trials. She speakes directly to the reader's heart (and soul) with the sage wisdom and wise advice of one who has faced her own crushing trials and tragedies, yet through her unwavering faith in God, has been healed in only the way He can heal.

    "Simply Salsa: Dancing Without Fear at God's Fiesta" is truly a gift from Janet to us! As she intimately shares her insights, personal trials (not the least is losing her eyesight as a young mother to 3 small and active boys), coupled with a renewed awakening of her Christian beliefs and dedication to the Lord and His word, we learn that truly He does not give us more than we can handle. When one begins to feel defeated or lost in life-- always searching for the elusive"more"-- take a quiet moment and reflect on the inspirational words of Janet Perez Eckles. Learn what true emotional devastation, sense impairment, loss, heartbreak and grief look like. If Janet, walking with the Lord, can overcome all life's harsh obstacles and still learn blessed peace and forgiveness, especially in the most unimaginable circumstances, why can't we? She teaches one to listen in one's heart to the "music" of God's word. Let Him "lead" you on the dance floor of life, and fill your dance card with His grace. No other dance partner is needed.

    My suitcase was overflowing with summer outfits and matching swimwear as I did my best to make room for Simply Salsa: Dancing Without Fear at God's Fiesta. Would I really take the time to read this book while on vacation? After all, my objective was to gaze out at the deep blue sea,take long walks on the soft white sand and soak up Caribbean paradise. I opened the book, turned off my cell phone and found an even better paradise. The words soothed and settled me in my lounge chair for two straight days. It's the best read of 2011.

    How do you respond when tragedy strikes - you lost your job, your home, a child, or your health? Some commit suicide. Some transform into cynics and lose all zest for life. Others, after a time of realistic grieving, rethink life and still find time to dance. Such a person is Janet Eckles.

    In Simply Salsa, Janet walks us through the thought process that gave her hope, purpose and peace after tribulations of a variety and intensity that few face, including the loss of her eyesight, the infidelity of her husband, financial disaster, and the murder of her child. As I read, I find not only wisdom, but the hope that "If Janet can keep playing the game of life with the hand she's been dealt, then there's hope for me." Having lost my wife to breast cancer in her 30's, leaving me with four young boys to raise on my own, I understand a bit about loss and grief, and identify with Janet's struggles and solutions.

    Some who deal with profound disappointments need to struggle deeply on a philosophical or theological level. They may appreciate the works of C.S. Lewis (The Problem of Pain) or Philip Yancey (Where is God When It Hurts?). But others prefer answers offered through a more personal approach, from someone who's willing to share her inner struggles and the rethinking of life that helped her emerge from the ruins to find a life of hope and joy. For the latter, Janet's experiences can start the healing process.

    In one section, Janet observes that answers to life's problems often require waiting. How we handle that waiting can make all the difference. As she puts it,

    "There are two groups of people. One group exudes peace even in difficult circumstances. The other group includes the folks who go into hysterics over small things like a long line at the post office. The difference between the two kinds of people is the way they decorate their waiting rooms."

    That's wise advice, straight from someone who's intimately acquainted with years living in the waiting room. Simply Salsa is a well-written, heartfelt message from one who's been there to those who are there. Don't give up! There's Light at the end of your tunnel. And not only Light, but a bright Light and a personal Light who cares for you deeply.
