Reviewed by Joy Hannabass for Readers' Favorite No one has a perfect marriage, but many people have happy marriage, and author Amanda Beth says that you can too. It is not easy, and Beth says it took many steps each day to bring their marriage to what it is today. In her new book "You Can Have a Happy Family", Amanda Beth shares the steps that worked with her marriage to her readers. Just as God has helped this author's family, He will help each and every family that is willing to follow Him. In the seven chapters in this book: Love, Forgiveness, The Real Enemy, Money, What Men Need, What Women Need and What Children Need, you will find valuable tips, sound wisdom, and instructions on how husband, wife and children can live a happy life together. Yes there will be disappointments, disagreements, and many difficulties, but you will find how to deal with everything that comes your way with the help of God and His Word. As I read this book, I realized that every married couple can benefit from reading this book. Even if your marriage is a happy one, and your family is happy at this point in your life, there will come times when things may not be as they are now, and this book can help prepare you for those times. This would be great to use for family devotions. And you wouldn’t even have to follow straight through the book, you could skip around and use what works for your family for that day. I encourage you to pick up a copy for your family, or a family that you care about.

This book was a good read. Amanda Beth does a good job of using Scripture behind the concepts presented throughout this book, as well as pulling from surveys that she did. The topics covered are ones that most couples deal with and it is a good conversation starter for husbands and wives.

This powerful faith-based book is a must read for every family. It grabbed me on the first page and didn¿t let go till I had turned the last page. I wish this book were required reading for every couple about to be married. As the back cover says, GOD CAN¿a thought to carry with you every day.

Most times PhD's and marriage counselors write books on family and marriage. They gather their information from years of counseling or books they've read on the subject. What I really like about Amanda's book is her candor and her transparency. Every page of her book comes right from the pages of her hectic, God-centered daily life. She's a stay-at-home mom, by choice, and she and her hustand are raising four children from a todler to a pre-teen. What's she's done in here book is peel her life back and written about the good,the bad and the ugly in her life and marriage. Doing so has enabled her to write a book that would help any readers have a happier home and a better marriage. This is not a book filled with cookie cutter advice and formulas for success. It's a book about one mom's every day struggles. It's a book about how Amandabeth has allowed God to shape and mold her marriage and her relationship with her husband, children and family. It's written in a pleasant conversational tone that anyone enjoy. All who read it will identify with one or more points in in the book and benefit from sharing Amandabeth's experiences. I recommend it to all married couples, whether you got married last week or last century and any couple thinking about getting married in the near future.

"I thought this was a well written, easy to understand book that goes beyond human perspective. It is full of God's wisdom. It teaches God's definition of love and it highlights key verses that answer a lot of questions we have about marriage and raising children. I think this book is a real useful tool that we should always want to read over again to keep it fresh in our minds."

This book is such an amazing help to any marriage. Amanda Beth has shared so many situations in her life that will relate to you. Even though my marriage is very good it made it better. If you are struggling in your marriage you must read this book!

Personal stories and experience create interest in a book, and "You Can Have a Happy Family" has both. Amanda Beth draws from her own life to show how you can work through the normal obstacles every relationship faces to build a lasting and happy marriage and family. Another strength of the book is the integration of Amanda's personal life stories and scripture. Amanda has a great grasp of biblical passages and stories that bear on healthy relationships and marriage. At times you will find yourself nodding in agreement and smiling at incidents in her family's life that resonate with your own. You'll also be infused with a fresh hope to work on circumstances in your family life that you might have given up on as being impossible to resolve. "You Can Have a Happy Family" is a great read, and will challenge you to hang in there with your family and do all you can to work things out, press on, and develop the kind of relationships that promote health. I encourage you to spend time with this book.

Amanda Beth has written something that's far more than a book! You Can Have A Happy Family, is an emergency rescue manuel for ANY relationship, no matter how far down your situation has sunk. This book is so easy to read, very well written, filled from cover to cover with the hidden secrets to real happiness! Let's face it... what is a life of high achievement, if you don't have a FAMILY to share it with? What is grief, if you don't have a FAMILY to lift you up in life's darkest moments? Ecclesiastes 4:8-12 NLT says, "This is the case of a man who is all alone, without a child or a brother, yet who works hard to gain as much wealth as he can. But then he asks himself, 'Who am I working for? Why am I giving up so much pleasure now?' It is all so meaningless and depressing. Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble. Likewise, two people lying close together can keep each other warm. But how can one be warm alone? A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken. This book is healing to the broken family... it's a clear map to the kind of relationships you've always dreamed of having! I hope you enjoy it just as much as I have. Thank you Amanda and God bless you for this gift! Chuck Balsamo Author of Make Me A Legend
