Absolutely inspiring stories and insights from a woman with a heart that just keeps on growing, offering us all a chance to grow, sing and dance with her through every African experience. Dancing in the Light is a gift for the would-be global volunteer: a must-read before committing to stepping into the Light that is Africa. But this is more than a how-to volunteer book; it is a manifesto for living a life of purpose, respectfully and open-heartedly, and applicable to every reader. Dancing in the Light will help readers discover their true missions while providing inspiration and practical tips. This book is full of advice and encouragement, hard questions, and moments that will make you laugh, cry, and think. What a wonderful, thoughtful, and authentic book!  —Kelly Himsl Arthur, Director thinkpeace workshop for girls and lifelong peace activist and advocate for social justice

Dancing in the Light - A Volunteer’s Lessons of Faith and Redemption in Africa is the story of one woman’s journeys and experiences as a short-term volunteer in Africa, yet so much more. Denise Stasik opens her heart to those she meets on her trips to Africa and the reader. Her faith journey will inspire and encourage the reader in their journey as well. This book should be required reading for anyone contemplating a short-term mission trip and its value. We suggest you keep a box of tissues nearby.  —Dan and Christine Keller, CEO/Founders RCS Millwork and frequent short-term missionaries to Africa

I have known Denise Stasik for many years, first as a colleague at the New York State Department of Health, then through her progressive career in healthcare. For more than sixteen years, she has been drawn into an additional sphere of helping... helping children and women in Africa. In Dancing in the Light, Denise tells us true stories about what happens on the ground. She not only lets the reader know factual things about volunteering and how to avoid commonly made mistakes, but she also tells us about the spiritual feelings she experienced. The main essence of volunteering is being able to help in whatever capacity you can help. Dancing in the Light should be a must read for students of global health, volunteers in the Peace Corps, people contemplating to volunteer in Africa (or even areas in the US or abroad), or for any people interested in human kindness.  —Max Salfinger, MD, FAAM FIDSA ATSF, Professor of Public Health Practice (retired) at the USF Health College of Public Health and Collaborative Research Professor at the USF Health Morsani College of Public Health, Tampa, FL
