Women frustrated with their marriage and family life will find the help they need to achieve greater happiness and success in a new book about how to have a happy family, Family Ever After: Simple Ways to Achieve Extraordinary Happiness with Your Ordinary Family (Familius, April 2013), by stay-at-home "everymom" and family leader Michelle H. Packard.
In Family Ever After, Packard provides a practical, poignant, funny and moving exploration of the simple ways women can find greater happiness and satisfaction with their marriage and family. The book uses time-tested and well-researched principles to family life to help readers learn specific ways to improve their marriage and family, whether that family is ordinary or extraordinary.
According to Packard, “A storybook 'happily ever after' simply isn't the reality for most women. While the idea of happy ever after is distorted, you can, in fact, achieve your Family Ever After.”
Family Ever After enlightens readers with the following key philosophies:
- 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 is an essential and inspiring resource that helps women gain the understanding and practical skills necessary to achieve extraordinary happiness and success for themselves and their families.
