Blue Like Play Dough Blog Tour


Blue Like Play Dough by Tricia Goyer

Be sure to watch for this one around the blogosphere this week as it tours with Random House. I have about 50 pages left in the book and plan to finish it this evening. It is a very good book and I love the way that it shows all those "imperfect" mothering moments that we all try to hide and deny that we have - and shows how God uses those to help us grow - or to mold us (you know - like play dough). But enough from me - I will be posting my review later this week!

Summary (from Random House): 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.

Author bio: Tricia Goyer is the author of numerous works of fiction and nonfiction, including Generation NeXt Parenting and the Gold Medallion finalist Life Interrupted. Goyer writes for publications such as Today’s Christian Woman and Focus on the Family, speaks to women’s groups nationwide and has been a presenter at the Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS) national convention. She and her husband, John, live with their family in Montana.

There are times that we need to remember that God is always in our life. I would really love to read this book. It is time for me to be reminded and inspired by God's love.

Thank you,
