A Kaleidoscope of Proverbs

I jumped at at the chance to read and review Kaleidoscope by Patsy Clairmont and I was not disappointed. Filled with the wit and wisdom that is a Patsy Clairmont trademark, the book was truly a blessing to me as it will be others who read it. I have always enjoyed reading the book of Proverbs because of the wisdom and instruction I hAVE found there. As Ms. Clairmont says, "it is an in-your-face" kind of book.

Ms. Clairmont has written an easy to read book but one that is filled with wonderful insights Through many personal anecdotes she explains how the passage was relevant in her life.

I have been a fan of Women of Faith speakers and writers and highly recommend this book to other fans or to anyone who enjoys an easy to read relevant book.

This book was reviewed through the Thomas Nelson (Booksneeze) review program.

Start Here by Alex & Brett Harris

Although this book was written by and for teen, I found many of the ideas present could be used by anyone wanting to stretch themselves and get out of their "comfort zone". In fact I felt encouraged and empowered by some of the suggestions found at the end of the book.

I believe that God has a plan for each of us and, as this book shows, He will provide the means and abilities we need in order to fulfill His plans for us.

With the bad press given to teens today, it is refreshing to read about teens who are truly dedicated to God and helping other people in their community and around the world. The teens represented in this book are to be commended not only for their accomplishments but for giving God the credit and glory for them.

I recommend this book and feel it would benefit youth leaders. In fact it should be a must read for everyone who works with and influences today's young people.

This book was reviewed for where it may be purchased.
