Blue Like Play Dough by Tricia Goyer

Hi Friends,

I wanted to tell you about the newest book from my good friend, Tricia Goyer. Tricia and I started out writing, and going to Mount Hermon Christian Writers Conference, back in the early 90's. I think we became friends back in 1994 and have been on this writing journey together ever since. She's a great writer, and her newest non-fiction, BLUE LIKE PLAY DOUGH, is sitting right here on my TBR (to-be-read) pile. Here's a bit about it:

In the everyday stretch and squeeze of motherhood, Tricia Goyer often feels smooshed by the demands of life. In Blue Like Play Dough, she shares her unlikely journey from rebellious, pregnant teen to busy wife and mom with big dreams of her own. As her story unfolds, Tricia realizes that God has more in store for her than she has ever imagined possible.Sure, life is messy and beset by doubts. But God keeps showing up in the most unlikely places–in a bowl of carrot soup, the umpteenth reading of Goodnight Moon, a woe-is me teen drama, or play dough in the hands of a child.In Tricia’s transparent account, you’ll find understanding, laughter, and strength for your own story. And in the daily push and pull, you’ll learn to recognizes the loving hands of God at work in your life… and know He has something beautiful in mind.
