    Practical Help for Working Couples

    The Busy Couple's Guide to Sharing the Work & the Joy is a helpful resource for working couples. In this practical guide, Kathy tackles many common household issues, such as time management, housekeeping, meal planning, relationships, finances, and special events. Each chapter is filled with Kathy's trademark practicality and can-do optimism, as well as ideas to make your family life less stressed. (One of my favorite sidebars is the list of family-friendly iPhone apps, in which you'll discover such gems as "Sit and Squat"-an app that gives traveling families the nearest bathroom options, as well as stats on cleanliness and changing tables. Genius!) I also enjoyed her creative ideas for spending quality time with your kids.

    Though some of the checklists and worksheets are a bit tedious, many of Kathy's common-sense tips are helpful, such as simple strategies to communicate with your spouse, simplify each room of your home, and delegate household tasks according to personality and availability.

    As an added bonus, Kathy's husband, Bill, penned a men's perspective to each chapter, making this book a good resource for couples to read together.

    If one of your New Year's resolutions is to experience more peace and order in your home, I can honestly recommend this book, along with any of the resources from Kathy Peel's Family Manager brand.

    NOTE: I received a complimentary copy of this book from Tyndale House Publishers.
