I Just Published a New eBook

"What will we do for Easter?"

At this time of the year, many churches are making plans for special services For Good Friday and Easter. Large churches are probably already in the process of organizing a major event. There may be some churches, youth groups, or church-based dance ministries that are still asking themselves that question. "What will we do for Easter?"

Find on Amazon and Smashwords

If you belong to a group that is asking that very question, my new ebook, Winning Back My Beloved, may be just what you are looking for.

What is this story about? Here it is in a nutshell.
This is a love story. You have a King. You have his Beloved. You have an Enemy. The Enemy entices the Beloved away from the King. The King will do anything, even sacrifice himself, to win her back.
The dance/drama described in this ebook does not require a large budget. It does not require a large cast. It is performed by three dancers. The music can be in whatever genre best fits your group. It can be original or compiled from selections of already-recorded music. This ebook lists the music I am currently using as an example.

The King halts the action
As we put this dance together in Bali, I spend a good bit of time with the teens making sure they understand the significance of the various movements. We discuss the relevant scripture that is the basis for the action. I strongly recommend that discussion like this be a part of the preparation, especially with younger believers. It is an excellent opportunity to communicate truth to them. Here are a few of the questions we discuss.
  • What is the significance of the King taking Manusia’s chain from her neck and putting it around his own neck before allowing the enemy to kill him? 
  • Why is it important that the King not merely be killed in the course of battle? Why does he need to stop the action and allow the enemy to kill him?
  • What is the significance of the King giving Manusia his own white sash?

I am happy to say that Winning Back My Beloved is now available on Amazon and on Smashwords. (For those of you not familiar with Smashwords, this is an ebook distributor that makes ebooks available in many platforms such as iBookstore, Sony, Kobo, B&N, Stanza, Aldiko, Pal Docs, PDF and others.)

If you are asking, "What will we do for Easter?" I invite you to check out Winning Back My Beloved in whatever format works best for you. If it is too late to do this for Easter, the message applies all year round.

I hope you will enjoy "Winning Back My Beloved", and that your performance will bless those who experience it with a fresh realization of the depth of our King's love for us. 


  1. Cool stuff Julie,
    You did go with a completely different title, and it works. As I'm not really attached to a physical church right now, I have opportunity to really use this, but I wish I did. Kids don't get to experience dance or performance with a higher meaning very often. And Easter morning services are pretty predictable for those who've attended for a number of years. Thanks for giving another option.

    1. The first time a group of kids did this dance, the girl said afterwards, "I feel kind of bad because I saw some people with tears in their eyes." I told her, "DOn't feel bad about THAT! The tears just mean that the message touched that person. That's what we were hoping for." (Not that our goal is to jerk tears out of people, of course, but if the tears mean something good is happening inside...")

    2. That's so cool. Especially that the girl felt bad about making someone cry. Kids have such neat spirits. What happens to us as we get older? IDK.


Any thoughts on this post? I would love to hear from you.
