Stained Glass Hearts
Title: STAINED GLASS HEARTS
Author: Patsy Clairmont
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Genre: Inspirational/women’s issues
People have glass hearts. They shatter. And in STAINED GLASS HEARTS, Patsy Clairmont explains how the power of God can restore and redeem that which seems devastated beyond repair.
STAINED GLASS HEARTS is more solemn and serious than most of the other books by Ms. Clairmont that I’ve read, but there is still some of her trade-mark humor.
The stories are personal, heartbreakingly real, and after the tales are told, Ms. Clairmont uses quotes, scripture readings, sample prayers, and recommended music or youtube videos to listen to or watch.
This book wasn’t quite what I expected. Not that I was disappointed in it. It is full of chances for us broken women to see potential for color, sparkle and purpose through the grace of God.
This is not a book designed for small groups, unless you feel comfortable letting it all hang out—and most of us don’t. STAINED GLASS HEARTS is a book that you will want to read slowly, on your own, and absorb everything that God is using Patsy Clairmont to show you. $16.99 hardcover. 192 pages.
