Her first book published in 2010, Dance, God’s Gift to You, presents a fresh, clear biblical understanding of how God views the dance, elaborating on how and why dance should be used in the worship experience. This book will answer many questions and help open the eyes of your understanding to:
- The origin and purpose of the dance
- How dance is used as a powerful weapon against the enemy
- How dance is used to restore and bring order out of chaos
- Why God takes pleasure in the dance
- How to pursue the presence of God through the dance
- The healing qualities of the dance
- What God expects of His ministers of the dance
This book is used as one of the textbooks in our Institute (IPHP). It is being used as a required reading resource by many dance ministries across the nation.
Dr. Crawford’s second book released 2013, Hold on to Your Dream, promises to be a “best-seller.” This book was written to encourage those who wonder if it is possible to achieve their dreams or if they should give up hope. Dr. Crawford inspires and challenges readers to think from God’s perspective regarding their dreams and guides them on a journey of discovering their dreams or rekindling the flame of a lost passion.
Using biblical principles and siting contemporary and biblical achievers, questions are answered that many have about making their dream a reality:
- Do I have a God-given dream?
- Is my dream achievable?
- How can I avoid the pitfalls on my journey?
- What have others done to successfully achieve their dreams?
- It is too late for me to work towards dream fulfillment?
Unfortunately, many people give up on achieving their dreams when they are faced with what seems to be insurmountable odds. Discover how to recognize and reclaim your God-given dreams, and identify steps you need to take to see your destiny fulfilled.
