Dancing Softly is dedicated to Ashley Smith, a young woman who took her life at GrandValley Prison. Ashley’s crime – throwing crab apples at a postal worker. Ashley never should have been incarcerated. The system broke her spirit. And there are many woman in systems – mental health, nursing homes, penitentiaries, who are disempowered, bullied and treated as if they have little worth.
Dancing Softly, a story of hope and overcoming. It’s a story about the resilience of the human spirit and the touch of a gentle God.
