Family Ever After Book Review & Giveaway

Family Ever After: Simple Ways to Achieve Perfect Happiness in an Imperfect Family

Women frustrated with their marriage and their family will find the help they need to achieve greater happiness and success in their family in the new book, Family Ever After: Simple Ways to Achieve Extraordinary Happiness with Your Ordinary Family by stay-at-home mom, blogger, and ordinary family leader Michelle H. Packard. Family Ever After uses the fairytale concept that once you find your prince charming life is happily ever after. Michelle H. Packard knows this concept, while romantic, is not realistic, and she provides a practical, poignant, funny, and moving exploration of the simple ways you can help find greater happiness and satisfaction in your marriage and family. Packard says, “While the idea of happy ever after is distorted, you can, in fact, achieve a Family Ever After.” Family Ever After brings time-tested and well-researched principles to family life to help you learn specific ways to improve your marriage and your family, whether that family is ordinary or extraordinary. Using real-world examples of best practices and helping woman readjust their media-driven perception of what happily ever after means, Family Ever After gives readers a pragmatic, helpful, and entertaining exploration of:

  • How happiness in marriage and family life requires a more educated, real-world perspective
  • How proper prioritization and defining what’s important in marriage and family is key to success;
  • Why conflict is part of an ordinary family experience and how to peacefully resolve it;
  • How to cultivate a sense of humor;
  • How to develop a thoughtful and sincere habit of complimenting each member of your family;
  • How to improve family relationships with extended family members; and
  • Learning how to love a family member in the way they understand and accept that love
More than another how-to-have-a-perfect-family book, Family Ever After helps you gain the understanding and the practical skills of what makes ordinary families successful. Family Ever After is an essential and beautiful resource for all women who want to put more happiness in theirs and their family’s life. 

Head over to the Promotional post from last week to read more about the author and enter the giveaway.

My thoughts: This isn't your typical how-to book, instead the author shows us through personal experiences of her own and others on how to bring more happiness into our family for a Family Ever After. The writing is well laid out and doesn't jump around. You are held by the experiences and want to see how you can add more to your own family life. Each chapter has a challenge to help you find your Family ever after. Find more love and fun with your family, learn to show your love how you feel loved by your spouse or family. This is a wonderful practical book that I know I will be going back to as I am going to work on some of the authors challenges and find my family ever after. This book really is an inspirational book and a very handy tool for anyone looking for more happiness in their lives. I give this book a 4.5 out of 5 stars.
