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 Tricias transparent account, youll find understanding, laughter, and strength for your own story. And in the daily push and pull, youll learn to recognizes the loving hands of God at work in your life and know He has something beautiful in mind.
