About the Book

Lemons-and-Lace1If you’re going through a dark season in your life, know that there is hope. In this true account of God’s healing power, Lemons and Lace—Bitterness to Beauty reveals how to turn your mourning into dancing so that you can gain a new sense of freedom and hope for the future.

Young, in love, and dedicated to church ministry, Pam—a pastor’s wife—and her husband Rick seemed to have the best of everything. They were unaware that in their life’s journey a series of adverse events would test all they knew about each other and the God they committed their life to serving.

From the death of their 14-month-old daughter, Pam’s cancer, marital complications and uncertainty about where God was leading them, the couple is left swimming in a sea of doubt about their future. As insecurities grow, brokenness leads to more destruction with Rick eventually taking his own life. Stricken with grief and guilt, Pam reaches out to the only One who can deliver her from her troubles.

Has your world suddenly been turned upside down, shaken by undeniable grief and mourning? God, in all His majesty, knows your heart, hears your cry and—like Pam—will exchange the bitterness of life for the beauty of who He is and who you are in Him.
