Interview with Tricia Goyer: Favorites

  • Character in Sewn with Joy: Joy is my favorite. She has a tender place in her heart for listening to Jesus and seeking to share him with others.
  • Line in the story: I love the advice that Elizabeth gave Joy when Joy was questioning if she should go against others’ wishes to follow Jesus: “If you’ve gone to the Lord, and you believe you’re doing the right thing, then trust in that,” Elizabeth had said. “Sometimes it takes some people longer to come around, but if they’re open to God’s voice they eventually will.”
  • Recipe featured in the book: I made the Zucchini Casserole, and it was delicious!
  • Hobby: I love reading. Every day I read for myself, and I spend a few hours reading aloud to my kids in homeschooling and at bedtime. I’m always excited about what book to read next.
  • Bible verse on joy: “Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance” (James 1:2-3).

  1. My favorite character is Joy, she has the ability to listen to others with a open heart, it takes a special person to listen with compaction, to give God’s advise and love others as we want to be loved. Joy shows that love in this book.
    My hobbies are reading, and spending time with my family.
