Klampert’s Notes on the book: I recieved this book in the mail a few weeks ago to do review on it. Much to my surprise it was a book by a woman for women. So I passed it off to two women in my church who both devoured it. They were not able to get me reviews on it quick enough, but they both LOVED it. One of the women said “It’s almost like this lady lived my life…” They got a ton out of it and they have said they recommend it highly.

Summary:
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.
