Pictures in Glass Frames includes personal anecdotes that encourage readers to honor Christ daily, love unreservedly, and live purposefully. Readers will laugh, cry, and praise God as Shawn R. Jones candidly unfolds her life story. This devotional reveals the intimate details of Jones’s tragic family history and restored adult life. It describes a lineage that is misshapen by domestic abuse and addiction, but most importantly Pictures in Glass Frames celebrates a life and present generation saved by God’s grace.

As Jones discloses the situations in which her faith has been challenged and restored, readers are encouraged to trust God with the difficult circumstances they face in their own lives. With Christ at its center, this heartfelt collection inspires, revives, and restores as the author conveys her central message: metaphorically, we are all pictures in glass frames; physically, we are innately human; spiritually, we are eternal.
