Kaleidoscope by Patsy Clairmont

Kaleidoscope Seeing God's Wit and Wisdom in a Whole New Light

By Patsy Clairmont

Acclaimed author and Women of Faith speaker Patsy Clairmont causes womens' hearts to leap and their hopes to lift in this quirky, straight-to-the point look at the Proverbs.

Understanding the Christian life and the Bible can be a daunting task. But maybe God didn't mean it to be so hard. In Kaleidoscope of Proverbs, Patsy Clairmont pieces together some powerful messages from God and reveals new facets of beauty, inspiration, and instruction. Written for busy women, Patsy offers brief, powerful chapters that address the key aspects of their lives, hearts, and relationships.

In the Proverbs, God gives us small gems of hope and truth, and in Kaleidoscope of Proverbs, Patsy Clairmont unveils them for readers with her trademark humor and insightful teaching.

About the author:
Patsy Clairmont:  Petite, profound, and playful. These words help to describe her size, her message, and her humor. She has a command of God's word and with her quick wit and fast Patsy Clairmont paced humor she will keep everyone laughing. This light touch combined with scriptural knowledge makes Patsy an unusual package. You find yourself laughing God's truths right into your heart.

Patsy comes from an uncommon background. Her years of suffering as a prisoner in her own home, a victim of agoraphobia, have given her a deep appreciation of God's healing power. God has pulled together the emotionally fragmented pieces of her life. From her emotionally troubled background God has combined her humor and her knowledge of His word to remind you that imperfect, "cracked" Christians are God's specialty.

My review:
I enjoyed this book.  Each chapter is short enough to use as a daily devotion, as each chapter is based on a verse from Proverbs.  They are also short enough that if you just have a few minutes, you can pick it up and just read a few pages.  Ms. Clairmont has a very easy to read writing style and she's witty!  Each chapter ends with reflection (Bits and Pieces) and various Bible verses to ponder on.  I would recommend adding this book to your collection and giving one to a friend.

Thank you Thomas Nelson for providing me with a copy of this book to review.
