Blue Like Play Dough

Blue Like Play Dough the shape of motherhood in the grip of God
by Tricia Goyer
Multnomah Publishing

Tricia Goyer is a breath of fresh air. I have read many books on motherhood and parenting and this is one of the best. She takes her readers on her journey of motherhood. Tricia learned through the good and the bad of parenting to trust in God. Her beginnings started out rough with finding herself pregnant as a teen. She gradually learned that without God he would not be able to get through motherhood. Tricia is real. Her experiences are real. She shares the good and the bad.
What I liked the best was how each chapter is like a mini book (plus they have such fun names). The book gave me things to think about and ponder. I think we all need to value motherhood and with God's help and love we can become a better mom.

This would be a great book to give a new mom or an experienced mom or buy one for yourself!! Go to to purchase your very own copy. Also, leave a comment here and I will be giving a brand new copy away! I will post the winner on August 1st!


  1. Krista, I am definately going to look into this book for my cousin who is not only a new Mom but a new Christian as well. She has turned her life around since having her baby and I am so proud of her and want to do what I can to encourage her. Thank you for reviewing this book, this may be just the thing for Christmas!!

  2. Sounds like a great book, I'd love a copy...Danika
