Praise for Blue Like Play Dough

“I couldn’t put Blue Like Play Dough down. 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.”
–Ginger Kolbaba, editor, Today's Christian Woman

“With fresh, disarming honesty, Tricia Goyer gives us a glimpse into the challenges of motherhood and womanhood as we know it oh-so-well. She then gently nudges us to remain pliable in the hands of the One who is deliberate in His plans for us.  A surrendered life is a beautiful life. Thanks, Tricia, for giving us an authentic picture of what that sort of life looks like.”
–Robin Jones Gunn, best-selling author of the Christy Miller Series and the Sisterchicks series

“A hopeful book that moms will relish, Blue Like Playdough is an honest, peel-back-the-covers look at the creative way God shapes us through childhood and parenthood. Tricia Goyer explores her own weaknesses along the journey, revealing her desire to serve the God who forms strength and joy and perseverance within her. A compelling, fresh read.”
–Mary E. DeMuth, author of Authentic Parenting in a Postmodern Culture

“I didn’t even know I needed to read this book until I found myself weeping as Tricia’s story reached right into my mothering heart. Part memoir and part self-help, Blue Like Play Dough is a must read for every mother who has ever doubted her purpose. An honest, hopeful read that will hearten moms no matter what stage of motherhood they are in.”
–Tina Ann Forkner, author of Ruby Among Us and Rose House

“Tricia’s story reveals a great truth: that as God uses us to grow our kids, he grows us in the process too.”
–Mary Byers, author of Making Work at Home Work and The Mother Load

“The best hostesses make you feel welcome in their home, a part of the family. Likewise, the best authors make you feel welcome as you visit them in the pages of their books. Tricia Goyer does that in Blue Like Play Dough as she invites you to come into her life and hang out with her family, and she doesn't apologize for the messiness of family life. Instead, with refreshing vulnerability and transparency, she shows us all that it’s okay to be imperfect in the hands of a God whose love for his own is perfect.”
–Nancy Kennedy, author of Girl on a Swing and Lipstick Grace

“Tricia’s book is a masterpiece on motherhood–sculpted by her hands–shaped by her love for God.”
–Margaret McSweeney, Pearl Girls ™: Encountering Grit, Experiencing Grace

Blue Like Play Dough had me nodding, laughing, crying, dog-earing favorite pages, and saying, ‘Wow, I’m not the only mom who feels that way? I’m not weird?’ Honest, gut-wrenching, and funny–this is the kind of book every mom needs to read and keep on her shelf–like a long-time friend–there to walk beside you, drink coffee with you, encourage you. Loved this book!”
–Kimberley Woodhouse, author of Welcome Home: Our Family’s Journey to Extreme Joy

Sinossi

Award-winning author Tricia Goyer shares her unlikely journey from rebellious, pregnant teen to busy wife and mom with big dreams of her own in Blue Like Play Dough.

In the everyday stretch and squeeze of motherhood, Tricia Goyer often feels smooshed by the demands of life. 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. As her story unfolds, Tricia realizes that God has more in store for her than she has ever imagined possible.

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.

5.0 su 5 stelle Honest and Inspiring Book~~~Blue Like Play Dough 24 agosto 2011
Di Joyce Mayberry - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Tricia Goyer has authored many books and after reading her "Blue Like Play Dough" I plan to read some of her others. She writes like a friend you are having coffee with. Her life was described as one that many young women could relate to~~regrets. She was born to a single mom and made some poor decisions growing up. But, when she let Jesus enter the picture, it all changed for the good. Tricia's book helped me to see that I am not the only young woman who benefitted greatly when I let Jesus in my own life!!! I enjoyed this book and happy I purchased it because I plan to reread it at some point in time. Well worth the used copy price I paid at Amazon.com.

5.0 su 5 stelle Must Read for All Moms 27 luglio 2009
Di Susan Stitch - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
There are many books written about the difficulties of parenthood, but most try to give advice designed to make the reader try harder to fit into some predetermined mold of a 'perfect' parent. This book, instead, frees a mom to open her soul so God can create the uniquely perfect person he destined her to be.

Like most mothers, Tricia talks about her insecurities as a mom, "I worried that I disciplined my kids too much. Or maybe not enough. That I fed them the wrong foods or allowed their brains to be filled with too much mindless entertainment. I worried I wasn't the helpmate my husband deserved or the friend and church volunteer I ought to be." But with God's Word she realized that she wasn't perfect, but she was loved; that her life wouldn't start once she got it right -- she was in the midst of it today.

The more she leaned on God, the more he molded her into the woman she was meant to be. It wasn't always easy or fun, but it was more rewarding and adventuresome than she could have imagined. In one of the most honest and authentic books I've read, Tricia helps all mothers learn that God's gentle kneading, or even those times when he smashes us flat as a pancake, will result in undeniable proof of his love.

While reading this book I felt that Tricia had reached into my soul, found my insecurities, doubts, and fears, and bared them in a way that allowed me to accept God's prodding.

4.0 su 5 stelle Blue Like Play Dough - a Review 2 aprile 2011
Di K. Hutson - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
I'll be honest. I'm not a mom. I don't even play one on TV.

But I am a children's pastor for a mainline denomination. In this role, I have the opportunity to impact the lives of numerous children (and youth) and their parents.

With that said, I initially picked up "Blue like Play Dough" thinking I should read it, because it might make a good resource for the moms within my circle of influence.

Not only did I find a book that includes spiritual insights and wisdom for moms, I found a book that spoke to my soul.

The first time through Tricia Goyer's book, I found myself reading to see "what happened" as the stories she told "hooked" me into her manuscript.

Goyer weaved through those stories a series of "spiritual nudges" or "ah ha" moments that began to resonate with my life. Pen in hand, I began to underline some of Goyer's faith nuggets, as I pondered how they might impact my life.

In her introduction, Goyer explains how she came upon the image of play dough. As she prayed about all of the "hard stuff" in her life, the image of a lump of play dough began to emerge.

She saw her life as a ball of play dough, sitting in God's hands. The ball of dough would be "stretched" and "molded" into a new creation as God used the various experiences taking place in her life.

Ultimately, Goyer began to realize that she was being transformed by God, one squeeze and squish at a time.

It's an interesting word picture - to think of your life as a ball of play dough, ultimately being molded into a masterpiece by God - the master creator.

In 23 different chapters, Goyer walks you through her life, and her experiences, first as a single, teenage mother, and later, as a mother, author, homeschooling mom and wife.

One chapter that particularly jumped out at me, involves a "lesson" Goyer learned as a young girl. After being let down by adults, Goyer decided "others couldn't be trusted," and that she would simply trust herself.

I found myself saying the same thing a few months ago, not as a child, but instead, as a 30-something single woman. I told a ministry friend that I needed to make a decision, not necessarily because it was the "right" thing to do, but instead, because I was alone - I didn't have a husband to "fall" back on. I was alone.

Regardless of age, Goyer points out the obvious in her book - we have to remember to put our trust in God, not in ourselves or others.

Blue Like Play Dough won't leave you "blue" as you read it. It will, instead, hopefully provide you with hope and encouragement, regardless of your stage in life.

A woman recounts stories from her life as a mother and how through each moment, God was molding her to become a woman HE wanted her to be, rather than the one SHE wanted to be. It was really inspirational and filled with wonderfully fun stories or ones that were humbling for her to write about, I'm sure. I loved that she was willing to share how she had messed up or how God used things for His good.
