Gigi5 Stars Out Of 5Fantastic gift!September 17, 2019GigiQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This little book( very pretty too) makes a useful and truly wonderful keepsake for the M.O.B. to share with her newly married daughter after the honeymoon and after the daughter becomes a M.O.B. herself! I bought this for my sister before her daughters marriage and she loved it. I wish I'd have had one when my daughter was married! I love and recommend this!
Angela5 Stars Out Of 5a "must have" for every mother of the brideOctober 22, 2016AngelaQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This book is a delight! I have been the mother of the groom once, and I am told by our youngest son, will soon be again. We have only one daughter and I want her wedding experience to be a joy. I found so many things in this book to be inspirational, full of wisdom, full of caution, but, most of all, overwhelmingly practical. I will carry this book with me every step of the way! I intend to buy a copy for every friend who becomes an MOB! Thank you, Cheryl!!
Kav5 Stars Out Of 5A Unique and Thoughtful Gift for Any Mother of the BrideJuly 13, 2016KavQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5What an exquisite little book. The bibliophile in me can't help be exude over its visual appeal. Does anyone else wax poetic over the look and feel of a book? The gorgeous chocolate/teal colour combination tickles my artistic eye while the embossed cover satisfies my tactile yearnings. There's even a built-in satin ribbon to mark your place as you explore the gems in this book. Definitely keepsake worthy which is perfect since that is what this book is sure to become.
Cheryl Barker has an engaging writing style and freely shares her own MOB (acronym for Mother of the Bride!) experiences. In essence this is just the kind of book she could have used when she embarked on this joyful and stress-filled journey.
She takes on the role of encourager and organizer as she lends unique support to MOBs everywhere. It's filled with sage advice and nuggets of wisdom and I can see how it could become a lifeline in those hurried, stressful weeks before a wedding. This book is well thought out -- Cheryl really has covered every contingency. It also includes detailed worksheets and journaling pages. And I absolutely love the way each section concludes with what I think of as breathing spaces - where she invites MOBs to look inward and heavenward with specific challenges.
A unique and thoughtful gift for any Mother of the Bride. Don't make her have to buy one for herself!
My thanks to BroadStreet Publishing and the author for providing me with a copy of this book.
Jocelyn Green, author of Faith DeployedCedar Falls, IAAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5RefreshingJuly 7, 2016Jocelyn Green, author of Faith DeployedCedar Falls, IAAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Mother of the Bride certainly lives up to its promise to deliver refreshment and wisdom! With been-there insight, Cheryl Barker comes alongside the reader and walks her through a joy-filled but challenging road with both inspiration and practicality. She is your cheerleader, your counselor, and your reality check when things threaten to spiral out of control. Since wedding planning can be stressful, I especially appreciate the creative ideas she offers the reader to take care of herself throughout the process. A well-adjusted, refreshed mother of the bride is an invaluable asset to the entire family. This will be my go-to gift for new mothers of the bride I know!
I'd definitely choose the hardcover over the Kindle version if possible, because there are places to jot down thoughts at the end of each reading. A bonus section in the back of the book also offers valuable worksheets to aid in interviewing vendors, along with other planning helps.
Debbie5 Stars Out Of 5Mother of the Bride:Refreshment and WisdomJune 27, 2016DebbieQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0Loved it and highly recommend Mother of the Bride: Refreshment and Wisdom. It would make a great gift for a friend or your self during this very special time. I found the book encouraging, inspiring and humorous at times as Cheryl Barker shares some of her personal experiences. It is also full of practical and helpful hints. One highlight of the book is it can become a keepsake. Each chapter ends with a page where you can share personal thoughts and feelings during your journey of being a MOB. I suggest you get it early on in the journey so you can take full advantage of the helps and suggestions. Well worth the investment!
