The Dangers of Children’s Dance Classes Exposed!

R R Mary Bawden 79

Redeemed & Restored with Mary Bawden

There is a scary trend in children’s dance. My guest today pulls back the curtain on the dangers of the increasingly sexualization of children through dance at younger and younger ages. In 2016, Mary Bawden founded DA:NCE (Dance Awareness: No Child Exploited) to create awareness and influence cultural change to protect children from exploitation in dance.

Welcome, I'm Athena!

I start each day by tithing the first hour to the Lord in prayer, reading the word, doing word studies of the Text, and asking God how I can live out what I am reading. This time is usually met with meditation on devotionals that are usually written by dead guys like Oswald Chambers, CS Lewis, Charles Spurgeon, AW Tozer, and Andrew Murray.

Right now, I’m reading a daily devotional with a friend called Tozer on the Almighty God for my focus for the day. It's fun to see individually what pulls us in to spur one another on to good deeds!

The Bible is filled with action steps to walk out in practical and intentional ways. This sets my day in motion to walk it out! I hope this is your heart, too.

Consider this a personal invitation to join me in this journey!
