Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book is an incredible reminder to be happy loving the ones who are most important in our life our family. Through Michelle's wit and wisdom, I found myself looking at my family with a clearer perspective of what happiness means in this reality we re living. I ditched the rose-colored glasses long ago, but Michelle's book provided the window cleaner I needed to see that it's okay if everything doesn't turn out right as long as we realize that happiness can be found within the simple things. And sometimes the simplest moments hold the most joy.

Family Ever After is a must-read for every happily married Cinderella who wonders why she s still holding the broom."

Rachelle J. Christensen, award-winning author of Wrong Number and Caller ID

"Michelle is open enough to have given readers an intimate look into her life and those close to her, allowing us to learn from both painful and sweet experiences. Her self-reflective style and meaningful insights, if applied, would clearly make a profound impact in the lives of readers."

Shawn Edgington PhD

Format: Paperback
This book is refreshing and inspiring. There's no guilt, no checklists - just real-life experiences that teach sweet lessons on nurturing family relationships. One of my favorite chapters is, Peace is Persuasive: Resolving Conflict. Michelle points out that children are people too, and they need to be treated with respect and kindness. She says, "When conflict must be resolved with our children, how we envision them makes all the difference.... If we are not intentional in treating our children with respect and love, resolving conflict with our children can lead to a lot of baggage down the road for both parent and child." Having known troubled adults who were forced in unkind ways to obey as children, I couldn't agree more with Michelle's advice. This and many other bits of wisdom are packed into this well-written book. I just wish my kids were still little so I could have a second chance!

LOVE LOVE LOVE the cover of this book!

Then I opened it up and LOVED LOVED LOVED the information inside!

It is true what the sub-title says... this really is a book of "simple ways to achieve extraordinary happiness with your ordinary family."

Each chapter starts with a challenge and then Michelle shares some of her thoughts and personal stories to help you answer and achieve that challenge.

Her challenges are really good!

Here is one of the challenges I really had fun accomplishing...

Take time to do something fun with your spouse or family and also do one thing for yourself that you love.

Here is a challenge I had to work at...

Show love to your spouse or child the way they feel loved.

Here is a challenge I still need much work on...

Choose to forgive an injustice you have been harboring.

Find what challenges you could be accomplishing with your family...repair those challenges that are holding you back and learn how to put the FUN back into your Family Ever After :)

I liked reading Dune. I liked reading Fable Haven, and biographies of Lincoln, Washington, Jefferson, Eisenhower, and Jackson. I actually liked this book. New ideas, funny stories, and to top it off... it makes sense. The red punch experiment is awesome! Try it out and see the results! Love it.
