Words worth sharing- Shelley and Jeremy on dancing, helping and having fun

“When God has given you a gift…..” 

One of the best parts of our ballroom dancing hobby has been the people we meet and the  relationships we develop. Dancing is a social activity, so it is not surprising that ballroom dancers tend to be involved in many community activities , especially those that support causes that improve people’s lives.

Such was the case when some local professional dance instructors teamed up with teachers and staff of a local school for at risk students to perform in a “Dancing with the Stars” type of event, complete with dinner, open dancing and a dance competition.  We voted for our favorite couple by donating to the school, each dollar equalled one vote. There was fierce but friendly competition since everyone’s main objective was helping the school provide quality education to students who might otherwise fail in the educational system.

Jeremy and Shelley’s promo video is typical of the sentiments of all the performers; and Jeremy expresses an attitude that we can apply to our lives daily.

“When God has given you a gift, when he puts something within you; He doesn’t give it to you just for you to enjoy; it’s for you to be a blessing to others. “

Please comment and tell what gift you are sharing.
