Patsy Clairmont's "Twirl: A Fresh Spin at Life"

Twirl: A Fresh Spin at Life, is a fun, lighthearted book that gives insight into the busy and difficult tasks that come our way in life. Patsy Clairmont writes in a way that makes one feel as if she is talking right to you over a cup of tea or coffee. She shines a light into the dark moments that many times can consume our perspectives of how we handle life. Bringing her sense of humor, her personality, which is full of vibrant color, and her talents, she opens up her heart to reveal ways that she has handled the busyness of life.

Each chapter talks about a different way to enjoy life despite its dark moments. Do you remember how you felt when you twirled as a kid? Patsy Clairmont, will have you laughing out loud as she offers her insight from her own life on how to live this life with joy from the Lord. Everyone needs to twirl more often. Each of us need to be reminded of that childlike joy that we had no matter what happened when we were children. It was the simple things in life, like bubbles, pets, painting, writing, or a good twirl on the playground that brought smiles and laughter into our lives.

Every time that I pick up this book I end up reading it with a smile on my face. Pick up this book and enjoy reading it. You never know, you might just remember what it was like to live life in a way that twirling once brought you joy.

Essential Atlas of the Bible, Carl G. Rasmussen


Essential Atlas of the Bible is a great way to understand the life, culture, and world of the time before and after Christ. This book is great for visual learners as it has multidimensional, full color maps, color photographs, as well as charts, and weather roads. What I found to be the most helpful in bringing together the Biblical content with what I was also seeing in the photos and the maps was the historical background. This is essential in understanding what we read in the Bible.

This book by Carl G. Rasmussen is a simple yet very detailed atlas of the Bible that will be a great asset to any Biblical study. Whether you are doing your own study or taking a Bible class, this will be a book that will add to your understanding of the Bible. Better yet, it will help make the Bible come alive as you see the places that Jesus walked, understand more fully Paul’s missionary journeys and much more.

Pick up your Bible and get to researching with the Essential Atlas of the Bible.
