­Thursday Thoughts on Writing and Reading

When you leave a comment on THIS post by midnight Sunday, December 18, you'll be entered in a drawing for a copy of the book I review below.

You Can Have a Happy Family by Amanda Beth

Amanda Beth passionately desires to see individuals and families transformed through the power of God. Her teachings on marriage and spiritual growth can be found on her website ( and her blog ( Amanda and her husband, Jason, live in Michigan with their four children.

From the back cover of the book
"YOU can’t perfect your family. Amanda Beth can’t perfect your family. NO ONE can perfect your family. But there is hope…GOD CAN!

Join Amanda on her journey to find contentment. She takes you through her personal testimony and reveals the steps God taught her that freed her from insecurity, strife, distrust, resentment, and chaos in her marriage.

She shares with you how to enjoy your family while waiting on God to restore, transform, and perfect you, your marriage, and your children. This book is a guide to a total FAMILY makeover.

As a mom of four children ages one to ten, Amanda understands the struggles of raising a family today. She shares her own struggles along with testimonies and needs of real families. And she helps you apply true Biblical solutions to the problems that marriages and families face today.

God only needs ONE willing heart to change a whole family. Let that heart by yours!"

From Jo:

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 it 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.

I thank Amanda for giving me a copy of You Can Have a Happy Family, which one of you could win. Remember to leave a comment on THIS blog by midnight Sunday, December 18 to be eligible for a drawing of a copy of this book.

  2. Pat, thanks for your comment. I agree, Amanda is so right. I was "blown away" by the book. I wish I had had it before I married--adjustments would have been easier, I think.

  3. Thanks for the great review, Jo! And thanks for posting my book on your blog!

    Pat, thanks for entering! I pray it blesses you and your family!

    Merry Christmas to you both:)

  4. I can always use food for thought and even tho I have 3 teens now, all walking in the Truth, I still need refreshment.

  5. Susan, thanks for your comment. I think we could all agree with you.
