Four years ago, I was introduced to a petite spit-fire with spikey hair and lots of sass at a Women of Faith conference in Dallas, Texas. Since that weekend, I have grown to love Patsy Clairmont, and her laugh-out-loud personality, even more!
In her latest publication, Stained Glass Hearts, Clairmont invites readers on a journey to acknowledge one’s brokenness while allowing God to create a beautifully-crafted stained-glass heart worthy of any museum, cathedral, or Heaven itself. In this book, readers are reminded of their fraility, tenderness, and need for connection ~ from both other humans and The Divine.
Like any journey, we encounter road block along the way but, these inconveniences are part of the beautification process God uses to create his masterpiece. After all, stained-glass is nothing more than tiny pieces of glass (i.e. heartache, disappointment, anger, doubt, regret) arranged in a unique pattern, glued together with molten lead (relationships), and supported by a sturdy frame (God).
Readers ~ young and old ~ will find themselves highlighting or underlining quotes, Scriptures, and sassy lines of text. And, in true Patsy-fashion, you will laugh out loud at the author’s quick-wit humor and outbursts of oh-my-gosh-did-she-really-just-say-that?!
While I read Stained Glass Hearts in just a couple of hours, it is a book I will revisit again and again. I will revisit this book to go deeper into Scripture, explore websites, listen music, read poetry and literature, and even visit national and international landmarks. At the end of each chapter, Clairmont includes a section called “The Art Gallery” where she recommends readers go deeper into Scripter, explore websites, listen to specific songs, read poetry and literature, and even visit national and international landmarks on this soul-searching, heart-warming journey of faith. No doubt, this book is that gate to an interactive adventure that will redeem, restore, and reclaim your heart and rekindle relationship with the Master Artist and Creator of all.
