Twirl is a delightful, easy read by Patsy Clairmont. From the introduction, she invites her readers, “Come, and together we will number the stars, dance with daffodils, sidle up to joy, test our wings, hold a song close to our heart, bundle letters, an do many other worthwhile exercises. All with the intentions of securing our sanity, adding to our vitality, and fulfilling our destiny. How I love that we can’t be too young or too old, too broken or bruised, too tired or tattered for God to work in us! His mercies are new every morning. That means as long as we live we have access to the storehouses of God, so bring your shopping car and let’s twirl down the aisles of his grace and mercy.”

In this new year, let’s embrace life in all it’s chaos and messy and hard and glorious. This book is comprised of 26 short chapters, all with single word titles. Each chapter is delightful to dive into, as Patsy shares the stories of her life and her family with readers.

Twirl is a light read, and can be digested in short chunks. Just read a chapter here or there when you’re looking for some whimsy, some sunshine, some inspiration–a reminder that this life is short and lovely and worth every ounce of our presence and intentionality.

Here’s to living in the newness of the year, and embracing every moment we are given!
