BOOK REVIEW - BLUE LIKE PLAY DOUGH by Tricia Goyer.
Ginger Kolbaba, editor of Today's Christian Woman said "I couldn't put Blue Like Pay Dough down." I agree with her. Tricia Goyer tells of her unlikely journey from rebellious, pregnant teen to busy wife and mom in a way that captures your attention and won't let you go. Kolbaba goes on to say, "Tricia's love of God comes through on every page as she shows what motherhood is like when God wields His rolling pin and smoothes the rough edges of her life. Before you know it, your heart will be putty in God's hands, too."
In Tricia's story you'll find laughter, understanding, and inspiration for your own story. And in the midst of your daily demands, you'll discover the hands of God at work...and know he has something beautiful in mind.
Tricia Goyer is the author of eighteen books of fiction and nonfiction. She writes for several Christian publications and speaks to women's groups nationwide. She and her husband, John, live with their family in Montana.
I like what author Mary Byers said about this book. She said, "Tricia's story reveals a great truth: that as God uses us to grow our kids. He grows us in the process too." Author Margaret McSweeney wrote, "Tricia's book is a masterpiece on motherhood---sculpted by her hands---shaped by her love for God."
Needless to say, I'm not a mother, but this book had me laughing, almost crying and wondering if I'm the only man that would feel this way. I think most men will find this book honest, gut-wrenching and funny. I liked this book!
