Interview with Tricia Goyer

Captain's Log, Stardate 10.22.2007
Today I have an interview with my friend, Tricia Goyer about her latest non-fiction book, My Life, Unscripted!

Drawing on Biblical prinicples, My Life, Unscripted guides girls through the tumultous teen years by teaching them to have a plan of attack before temptation or hardship come.

Tricia's Script:

Looking back at my drama-filled teen years I now wonder ... What was I thinking?

The truth? I wasn't. I lived from day to day on every wave of emotion. Some days excitement and passion partnered up, pattering wildly within my heart.

Other days, depression and anxiety were my silent friends. I lived each day as it came, with no plan for my future, for my relationships, or for my heart.

I lived my life completely unscripted ... and, well, it didn't go well for me. Teen pregnancy and a broken heart were only two consequences. Yet my prayer is that when teen girls are asked Who's Writing Your Life? their answer will be ME ... with the guidance of God, My Director.


And now, here’s me and Tricia!

What's your favorite chapter in the book and why?

My favorite chapter is the one in which I share my salvation story, because from that moment my life is forever changed. It's Chapter 15 ... Titled Fantasy: Truly Out of This World.

It's amazing that I'm now able to share all my mess ups without totally freaking out. In fact, I share them because I also share the HOPE found in Christ.

What movie(s) would be your life?

The Parent Trap--I met FOUR sisters last year. The Princess Bride--God rescued me when I was trapped by the enemy. A Walk in the Clouds--God gave me my husband John as a gift to me and my son, Cory.

What movie(s) would be MY life, in your opinion? :)

Camy Tang's life ... Evan Almighty. God told you to do something BIG for Him. You followed ... And now you have monkeys like me following you around :-)

LOL! Are you sure you’re the monkey? You and me are Thelma and Louise (well, without the abusive husband and bad family lives). Where would we go on our road trip and why?

Oooh, let's go back in time to 1940 San Francisco. We can write an Asian, historical story about amazing women who do great things for the war. Sound good?!

Sounds great!

All the ice cream in the store has melted. What do you do and why?


I clean it up! I wipe everything down ... I'm a neat freak. My husband's afraid to get out of bed at night because he's afraid I'm going to make the bed while he's gone!

Okay, you’re just weird. ;)

You're off the hotseat! Any parting words?


I love Camy Tang! I'm thrilled God put you as a supporting character in my script!

Camy here: Ditto here, Tricia!

No Cold Bums toilet seat cover

Captain's Log, Stardate 08.22.2008 I actually wrote out my pattern! I was getting a lot of hits on my infamous toilet seat cover , and I wanted to make a new one with “improvements,” so I paid attention and wrote things down as I made the new one. This was originally based off the Potty Mouth toilet cover , but I altered it to fit over the seat instead of the lid. Yarn: any worsted weight yarn, about 120 yards (this is a really tight number, I used exactly 118 yards. My suggestion is to make sure you have about 130 yards.) I suggest using acrylic yarn because you’re going to be washing this often. Needle: I used US 8, but you can use whatever needle size is recommended by the yarn you’re using. Gauge: Not that important. Mine was 4 sts/1 inch in garter stitch. 6 buttons (I used some leftover shell buttons I had in my stash) tapestry needle Crochet hook (optional) Cover: Using a provisional cast on, cast on 12 stitches. Work in garter st until liner measures
