ATLANTA, GA. (PRWEB) November 01, 2016
Dr. Georgianne Thomas married for the second time without consulting any book to warn her of the pitfalls that almost ended her life. In actuality, had there been such a book within her reach, Thomas may not have gotten married. So, she wrote her own book which was featured in the “The Atlanta Constitution” newspaper in 1978. That was the extent of the life of that first self-published, pamphlet-styled book. Now, thirty-eight years later, Dr. Thomas has revised her first guide, added decades of life experience, and re-released it for a new generation of women who may need to do what she didn’t do before she said, “I do.” And what was that? Heal.
“Guide to the Second-Time Bride” is a candid, and sometimes comedic personal book to guide women through a process of introspection, as well as guide them through practical steps to consider before marching down the aisle – again. Thomas provides encouraging, yet convicting commentary on children, in-laws, friends, and finances while offering opportunities for spiritual reflection as well.
One of the key components of the book is the REMARRIAGE MAZE JOURNEY. Second-time brides are coached as they take a step-by-step journey through a series of life conditions. The bride’s response to each one determines how or whether they should proceed to their second marriage.
Thomas cites research in her book about the staggering climb in divorce rates and remarriage rates over the last 50 years. “Guide to the Second-Time Bride” aims to help would-be brides come to grips with the dynamics of second marriages so that their next marriage has a chance to be a joyous and lasting union.
“This book has soul-searching, mind-boggling, eyebrow raising questions which I hope will serve as a barometer before the dress is purchased, the venue selected, and the invitations are mailed. In other words, before you say, ‘I do,’ what about you?,” writes Thomas in “Guide to the Second-Time Bride.”
“Guide to the Second-Time Bride” is published by Taylor and Seale Publishing, Inc. The book may be purchased through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-A-Million, and the publisher. Second-time brides may visit http://www.drgeorgiannethomas.com to order the book and read an excerpt.
