As I write this book I continue to realize how tempting it is to just fill it with my opinions. But that is not the point of the book, and I pray and strive to make it not about me or what I think. At the same time, I cannot just shrug off my own thoughts without examining them to see why I think a certain way.
The beauty is I'm learning this applies to all areas of life--generally I think a certain way for one of two reasons: 1. It happens to be what I believe fits with a gospel-centered perspective and goal, or 2. It's just my personal preference based on my own tastes (much of the time from selfishness).
I want my motivation in writing this book to always be Reason #1.
Over the next week or two I will be posting a bit about the bouquet and garter toss traditions, but first I would like to do a quick survey to see what YOU think--did you do one? Do you think they're a good idea? Do they have any negative connotations for you?
I would be so grateful if you would take a quick minute to answer the question below.
AND, please leave comment or shoot me an email (catherinestrodeparks(at)gmail(dot)com) if you have more thoughts! Thanks so much.
