When I was a child one of my favorite toys was play dough. My creative juices would start flowing from the moment I touched the soft clay. I could shape a respectable turtle and a fair looking dinosaur or dog. Sometimes I’d fashion tea cups. I would take the dough in my hands and begin to work it. I loved the feel.
Tricia Goyer uses play dough to describe how God wants to shape us. An old hymn says it all “Thou are the potter and I am the clay, mold me and make we after thy will.” This is the message of Goyer’s book Blue Like Play Dough. She shares her story of how God is molding and shaping her. We are creations of the Master. He has a plan for our life. He will shape us in His image if we allow Him.
Blue Like Play Dough is beautifully written. The style is conversational. At times I felt as though I was sharing a cup of tea with a good friend and listening as she shared her story.
