There is that saying - don't judge a book by it's cover - however, this cover couldn't display a better visual concept for this delightful book, or beautifully depict the "flavor" of this author any better. Known for her involvement as a Women of Faith speaker, Pasty Clairmont gives us a whimsical look at the directness of the book of Proverbs.

The book is comprised of 33 chapters, short in length (4-5 pages), that delve into a variety of topics from 'Stretch Marks' to 'It's the Nomad Life for Me'. Each chapter concludes which a few questions to ponder and list of several scriptures to "Hold to the Light".

This book serves a purpose for the reader to 'grab' when he or she has a few minutes to spare. In grabbing a handful of 'good cereal' this gives the reader some food for thought and a boost for their day. I can also see it working well for group gatherings, or even a great way to unwind at the end of the day.

Patsy has done a fabulous job of taking the bottom-line, barest-form truths to help us fashion them into life. She utilizes her insightful humor to sift through Scripture's most diverse book, holds scripture up to the light, and finds inspirational reflections that bring clarity. I recommend this book, makes a great gift as well! Happy reading!

My thanks to the amazing crew at Thomas Nelson publishers for providing books both for readers and authors alike through their booksneeze website. God creates beautiful partnerships as His truth speaks loudly. Read on...
