Book Review: Stained Glass Hearts by Patsy Clairmont (book giveaway!)

“Stained Glass Hearts reminds us just how brightly the light of God can shine even amidst our darkest moments, uncovering the promise and possibility of redemption and transformation.” – back flap

BookSneeze chose me as one of a handful of bloggers to tweet, Facebook and blog about Women of Faith. To celebrate that moment, I chose Stained Glass Hearts by Patsy Clairmont to review and to use as a book giveaway. Like her excellent speaking, Clairmont didn’t disappoint me. The book matches her personality. It’s quirky, fun and real.

“’Make your bed’ was a divine doorway for me to reenter life.” She says on page 10. Clairmont was agoraphobic, and depressed among other things. She is a popular speaker at Women of Faith conferences now sharing her pain and humor so that other women going through the same things can also ‘make (their) bed.’ I like her outlook. I like her sarcasm and her love of all things art. At the end of every chapter, there are fun exercises to view art, music and poetry through the eyes of one who has been broken.

I first sat with her book in my favorite chair, nursing a cup of tea, while my husband watched baseball, and the first page made me feel as if she, too, sat across from me. We were sharing tea, laughs and tears. I felt as if every page lived up to my expectations of Patsy Clairmont’s speaking. So leave a comment today and I’ll put your name in a drawing to win this nice, hard cover book from BookSneeze. Names will be drawn on September 29 and the winners announced on Friday, September 30 post. All commenters from previous Women of Faith posts are also entered.

Thank you for following my Women of Faith posts for the last month and a half. There may be other Women of Faith posts in the near future and I am waiting still for those guest blogs. Meanwhile, won’t you share your favorite Patsy Clairmont moment today?

  1. It’s been fun reading your posts as you’ve followed Women of Faith. I’m going when it comes to our city. I’m so excited to go especially since I’m going with one of my best friends (we’ve been friends since we were 6 and we’re in our 50’s now!) Can’t wait to hear Patsy! She’s always struck me as “sassy.” 😉

  2. I like that concept of “make your bed.” It captures exactly what I believe Jesus would tell me in the place of the pit: “Do the next thing.” Doing one simple thing like making the bed is sometimes the only connection to real life and getting on with it. This is basic stuff! But profound.
