The Stained Glass Windows Project

Stained Glass Windows is a novel by Joan Graves.  It’s the first book in the five-book Madison Series.

Lisbeth Thompson is a widowed single mother. After her husband died at the hands of a drunk driver Lisbeth renounced her faith and God and carved out a new life.

Cole Carter is a Bible-toting ex-con on a mission to save the world. Fiesty Lisbeth has him longing to be the man he once was rather than the reborn man he is.

Stained Glass Windows is more than a love story.  It’s a story about forgiveness, redemption, friendship, and how everyone can receive grace.

Clay Crosse a four-time Dove Award-winning artist gave permission to use the lyrics in his song by the same name.

Just beneath the rafters in a church of stone
Laid a stained glass window in the attic all alone
A work of art forgotten, a treasure thrown away
Taken from the sunlight, it was just a useless frame

Ooh, the things in life we take for granted
Ooh, the things of wonder we could know
Ooh, I want to be illuminated
Full of Heaven’s light
Shining through my life
Let the window of my heart reveal Your love

I took the stained glass window and held it to the light
Years of hidden glory reappeared before my eyes
Every brilliant color glowing like a fire
Full of revelation and created to inspire

Ooh, the things in life we take for granted
Ooh, the things of wonder we could know
Ooh, I want to be illuminated
Full of Heaven’s light
Shining through my life
Let the window of my heart reveal Your love

Thirsting for the morning sun
I am Yours, Thy will be done
Let Your love in me unfold
With its beauty to behold
