My Review:

Once again I have a book which puts God right in the front. I love the scriptures that are used. The Outline of the content was very user and effective to where or how you need to have a happy family. The Author, Amanda Beth has used the words of the Lord in helping to write to couples on letting them know that their family could and can be HAPPY!!

..I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows).

I enjoyed reading You Can Have A Happy Family. Amanda Beth did a great job of discussing issues that plague couples today. She discusses money issues, husband and wife relationship issues and issues with the kids. A lot of the things she brings up in the book will help show you how to deal with certain issues in your marriage. I found the book interesting and easy to read. It has a flow about it that makes it enjoyable. I highly recommend it for all families.

I'm neither married nor engaged, but the wisdom Beth shares in her book can be applied to relationships when courting/dating. It also prepares the unmarried person with inside knowledge I believe they'll need in marriage.

When i began reading this book i was surprised at how it seemed like i was reading something that was written just for me...I am married but have no children. My marriage is not what it used to be nor close to the way it should be...At first i thought this book was not for me due to not having children,but once i started to read it i realized it is exactly what i needed to be reading besides my Bible. People call me narrow minded and thats okay because it is a narrow road..AMEN !?! I normally do ...more

Lots of biblical truth!

This book is based on and filled with Scripture. Godly priorities (Faith, marriage, motherhood and so on ) are topics written on .
