Kate's Interview with Tricia Goyer
Tricia's new book, The Grumble Free Year:
The Goyer home—made up of two parents, eight kids, and one grandmother with dementia—is never without noise, mess, and, often, complaining. And it’s not just the kids grumbling. Adopting seven children in less than six years has been an adjustment, but it’s time to move out of survival-mode and into growth-mode. So the family decides to tackle the impossible: a grumble-free year. What could possibly go awry?
The Grumble-Free Year follows the Goyers as they go complaint-free and discover what it looks like to develop hearts of gratitude. They share their plans, successes, failures, and all the lessons learned along the way, offering not only a front-row seat to the action but also real-life steps for uncovering hearts that are truly thankful.
Tricia Goyer is a Christian writer of both fiction and non-fiction. A homeschooling mom of ten, including seven by adoption, Tricia is also a grandmother of four and wife to John.
