Leigh Ann Thomasabout this book: Becoming a mother of the bride was an emotional journey! I went from being mom to three little girls to watching my nest become empty at warp speed. I didn't want to let go!
The idea for writing Ribbons, Lace, and Moments of Grace came from my mistake of isolating myself during the early stages of preparing for our daughters' weddings. I was a weepy mess! I assumed no one could possibly understand my roller-coaster emotions, so in effect, I curled into an emotional ball.
I hit a mother-of-the-bride wall before I realized I could trust God with my worries and concerns—that He loved my daughters more than I ever could. I learned that weddings can be messy. And silly, and chaotic, and stressful, and WONDERFUL—as long as I walked with my Lord on the journey.
This book of inspiration is not just my story. I had the privilege of interviewing ten other precious mothers-of-the-bride and learning from their experiences. From "cow patties," to fainting spells, to getting stuck in a pair of Spanx, each adventure leads from chaos to the feet of Jesus. There is purpose in the madness!
Also, each chapter ends with a moment of grace—a prompt to encourage a time of quiet prayer and reflection and to seek God's heart in a unique life-season.
I invite readers to join me in a journey packed with laughter, tears, and a heart full of joy!
