Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Inspires mothers to draw closer to God through relationships with their children and each other.Follow up to the successful Walk With Me FaithWalk 2005. Two young moms writers and fellow Wheaton College grads weave personal stories recipes and poetry around the theme of seeing God through the eyes of their children. Play With Me inspires women to celebrate the sacred beauty of God in ordinary life by following their childrenrsquo;s simple playful forwardtumbling lead.

Synopsis:

On a late spring day, a daughter waits at the airport for her parents' plane to land and a summer visit to begin. Before the summer is over, however, her father will come to live--and die--in her sunroom. And her newfound faith in her heavenly father will uphold her as she learns how to let go of the earthly father she adores.

But so much more happens in that brief season: a century of family memories unfolds like a beloved quilt. A father and daughter reconcile their differences about faith. A daughter takes her first tentative steps toward understanding her mother. And the story continues to unfold as several generations journey to bid good-bye to the man who has been the energetic center of their family.
