“Through her story, Saraí beautifully conveys God’s unconditional and purpose filled love for each one of us. The potter illustration is simple enough to capture the heart of a child and yet profound enough to challenge an adult’s perception of worthiness. I highly recommend this captivating read.”

“Silly, Icky Clay in the Potter’s Hands is a warm and relatable story that makes the simplicity of the gospel come alive. The young and the young at heart alike will enjoy this inspiring book!”
David A. Dean,
Pastor and Author
Silly, Icky Clay in the Potter’s Hands is a beautiful and heartfelt story about how God works in our lives. The girl in the story realizes that the clay can be difficult to control and often seems to have a mind of its own. Nevertheless, her patient and skillful father molds the clay into a precious work of art. This wonderful metaphor will teach children and their parents that obeying the potter will make them something very special, something they couldn't have ever imagined!

My name is Sarai Mendoza and I am  so glad you are here friend! I am a California native and also take pride in my Salvadoran-Mexican roots.  I have been teaching upper elementary for the last 5 years. Mentoring kids and helping them see in themselves amazing possibilities and discover who they are in Christ brings me so much joy! Kids are resilient, full of life, visionaries, and I’m so excited to  share lessons through my book that will inspire and encourage every child! When I’m not working with kiddos, I love a good hike, long naps, conversations with friends, or traveling and learning about new cultures and places. 

Thank you for being here! Enjoy!
