Review – Blue Like Play Dough

Blue like play dough

Ever feel “squished and stretched” by the demands of motherhood?  Then Blue Like Play Dough is for you.  In this book, Tricia Goyer explores how God has used the ups and downs of motherhood to shape her.  We are allowed into Tricia’s life to see her inauspicious entry into motherhood as a frightened teenager and see the glimpses of God working her “like play dough” through the years of mothering her children as toddlers, school age children, and teens.  Through all of it, we get to laugh and cry with her, but always see that God is the one working the clay and molding her life to make her more like Him – and encouraged that God is doing the same with us, if we will let Him.  I found this a very pleasant book to read and definitely recommend it to the moms in your life!!  Go here for more information on purchasing this book.

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.
