Something I got right with my first parenting memoir . . . and one thing I got wrong

In 2009 my first memoir came out, Blue Like Play Dough. Yes, I might have been hoping to ride on the tails of another popular book at the time . . . Blue Like Jazz. As a mom of three at the time I felt stretched and pulled like a piece of play dough. There was part of my life that felt filled with crumbs. In 2009, John and I had been talking about adoption. I had no idea that {Read More}

Best Read Alouds {Picture & Chapter Books}

One of my favorite times of the day is when I get the kids settled in a night and it’s time to read. Bedtime reading has been a tradition that we’ve done for the last 20+ years. We make sure all electronics are turned off, the kids get ready for bed, and we sit down as a family to read. It’s amazing how many wonderful books we get to share as a family! I asked my readers on Facebook to share {Read More}

Free Amish Paper Dolls Printable!

Last month, I had a new novel release: Sewn with Joy! It’s a story about an Amish woman who was asked to sew for a new Amish TV show but before she knows it they’re asking her to get in front of the camera, too! This novel was fun to write, but it also is very heart-tugging. In addition to Joy’s story I get to dig into the heart and thoughts of an actress who’s sure that she’s made too many mistakes {Read More}

How Can Prayer Make History?

We read stories of world-changing leaders in history books and hear about the amazing things they did. But one part of the story is often left out: the role of prayer in their lives and the effect it had on their singular accomplishments. How can prayer make history? Bible Gateway interviewed Tricia Goyer (@triciagoyer) about her book, Prayers That Changed History (Zonderkidz, 2015). What do you say to people who think your book’s title is audacious? Tricia Goyer: History is {Read More}

Read an Excerpt from “Planted with Hope”

Emma Sutter lifted the ice cream cone to her lips, took another lick, and licked her fingers too. It was chocolate, her favorite, and she wondered if Aenti Ruth Ann would let her have it every day. Sometimes things like that happened, mostly because she’d lost her momma. Even though it had been two years, Emma still got two scoops of ice cream when most other kids just got one. Two scoops was a lot for her only being eight years old, and sometimes her stomach hurt {Read More}
