A peek inside the mind of Tricia Goyer.... Next month part 2....
Pink iguana, purple cow, periwinkle giraffe. Which one and why? Can be negative or positive.
Periwinkle giraffe . . . I like the way it rolls off my tongue!"
Where would you most like to travel ex. moon, north pole, deep seas, deserted island, the holy land or back to a place from your childhood, somewhere else? – Why?
I would love to go to Hawaii with my husband and relax on the beach. Sigh.
Favorite book setting. Why?
I was going to say anything World War II . . . but I also love anything European. Both is best.
What period of history intrigues you the most?
World War II, including the decade before and after. I have four published novels about this time period. Next month, my first book in The Spanish Civil War releases. It takes place just prior to WWII and it part of three book series.
This was a time of heroes rising to a challenge, and it inspires me to see what ordinary people can accomplish when rising to a call!
Favorite turn of phrase or word picture, in literature or movie.
Ohhh . . . I love the beginning of Sound of Music. It's as if God swoops down and notices a women dancing in the mountains and forgetting all the world's cares.. I often think of that scene . . . be reminded that God swoops down to look upon me with joy.
Book, music, person, food you would take with you on a very long trip.
Bible, coffee, sister Lesley, and peanut butter . . . it goes with everything--bread, apples, spoons.
What would you do today if you knew you had only a week to live?
Open my house to all my extended family and talk, laugh, and soak in their smiles.

Back tomorrow with a review of Tricia's Generation NeXt Parenting.
Change. I've learned to embrace it, ride it out til the end. Sometimes I'm kicking and screaming, other times weeping with my eyes clinched tight. Once in awhile I ride like a dog in a car, head out the window snorting what life has to offer. Mother to young adult children, a marriage of thirty years, and a desert to mountain to valley waltz with God have shaped me into someone I never imagined I'd be. Life is short and I want to live it. Tears, sighs, laughter and change. Every morsel granted to me. Scrambled, shaken or stirred.
