And now for a break from the normal heaviness of this blog:

I am reviewing the new book by Patsy Clairmont - Kaleidoscope.  In this book, Patsy takes an honest, raw, yet whimsical look at Proverbs and applies them to real life today.  I chose to take a chapter at a time as use as a devotional reading, although you could just as easily sit down and visit with Patsy all the way through.  With each chapter, she takes a Proverb, puts it into everyday use, and then at the end of the chapter she asks questions that help you to absorb it into your own life.  Stepping on toes, as my pastor growing up would call it.  It drew a great amount of reflection for me, and then to top it off, she offers several other verses to support and help you work through what you have read.

It is a quick, light read, but packed with spiritual insight.  In her great humor, she draws you closer to what we should become as Christians, especially in the way we react with and to the world around us.

Just so you know, I was not compensated for the review of this book, but I did get the book for free and so can you!! is a wonderful site where you can get books for free and then blog a review.  Check it out!!!
