Broken and Beautiful

Stained glass is colorful, broken glass that is crafted into spectacular designs. In many aspects we, God’s greatest creation, are pieces of a stained glass “window” on the world. Each piece a different color, shape, and part of various designs. Patsy Clairmont’s book Stained Glass Hearts is a humorous journey into “life from a broken perspective.” Patsy is a noted author and speaker from Women of Faith®. She has written and co-written many books as well as been one of the featured speakers on the Women of Faith® circuit across the United States. If you have ever been privileged to listen to her humorous talks, then you have come away with a new insight into the brokenness of all of us and yet you learn more about the great love that God has for each of us.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book which was set up into small chapters. Each chapter then utilized the arts to enable you to apply what you read. She gives you websites to visit for visual acuity and expansion of your reading, musical suggestions, and Scriptural references. This book enables you to laugh at yourself, spend precious moments with God, and journal your thoughts and possible applications. Throughout the book are quotes from various poets, authors, and theologians. One of my favorites is “Guard well your spare moments. They are like uncut diamonds. Discard them, and their value will never be known. Improve them, and they will become the brightest gems in a useful life” by Ralph Waldo Emerson (p. 187).

This small book is packed with all the wit, charm, and wisdom that is classic Patsy Clairmont. I received this book free for review from I have not been coerced into a positive review and the words are of my own volition and heart.
