Product Description

YOU can’t perfect your family.

YOUR SPOUSE 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 spouse, 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 other families. And she helps you apply true Biblical solutions to the problems that marriages and families experience today.

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

"The LORD will perfect that which concerns me: your mercy, O LORD, endures forever: forsake not the works of your own hands."

—Psalm 138:8, AKJV

5.0 out of 5 stars There is SO MUCH HOPE on the pages of this GREAT BOOK! Sept. 26 2011
By Chuck Balsamo - Pastor/Author/Speaker - Published on
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!

Author Amanda Beth has written a Christ-centered treasure with her book, You Can Have a Happy Family. I don't have time to reread books in my busy life, but I am in the process of reading her book - again.

One of the biggest dangers to Christ's church is the steady breakdown of the family unit. Because of this, Christian bookstores are lined with self-help marriage, family, and parenting books. I've read through quite a few of these books in the last decade, and Amanda Beth's book, You Can Have a Happy Family, is at the top of my list. Her attention to detail and adherence to scripture frame a well-written and engaging book that can be read a chapter at a time or during a long weekend.

There are 7 chapters covering the most important aspects in our marriages and our families: Love - You Can't Give What You Don't Have; Forgiveness - Receiving and Giving; The Real Enemy - Out to Destroy Your Family; Money - The Most Common Marital Problem; What Men Need; What Women Need; What Children Need. As I read through these chapters I would often stop, go back, and highlight some of the vital points and the biblical truths she brings from God's word to apply to our family life.

Amanda's passion for helping families through God's word is obvious in the pages of her book, as is her love for Jesus Christ. The true evidence of a life surrendered to Christ is a changed heart, and Amanda's book shows how accepting Christ as her Savior and seeking God brought about change in her heart, marriage, and family. Most importantly, she uses God's word as the foundation for all the steps she lays out in You Can Have a Happy Family.

You Can Have a Happy Family has been a blessing from God for my marriage. After reading it myself I'm now reading through it with my husband. The book is a Godly prescription to heal and strengthen marriage and the family, no matter the challenges or trials faced.

I highly recommend her book, and I urge couples to use the book as a bible study with your spouse. It's been a wonderful discussion tool for my husband and me, one that points us toward God's best for our marriages and families.

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).
John 10:10, AMP

The Love of the Lord has come to us and must come thru us. This book gives you alternatives or help should I say to making sure that there is love, forgiveness, making sure that each need is at least acknowledged and try to take care of. To know who the real enemy is and pray that you can stay strong against the enemy.

The book address what might try to come against a marriage. And then how to take care of that issue or issues.

From the stand point of being married for 31 years, I still enjoyed reading and going through things in this book. We can all use a little refresher course every now and then. And feel the Lord would love for us to do so.

Team Work.... as an old saying goes, "There is No I in TEAM"...

Including discipline with or for the children was awesome. As parents this day and time, either tend to over discipline, or under discipline due to the way the world views this topic. In this day and time in life you or we sometimes feel, or get the feeling of being judged on how we parent our children. Amanda Beth has use the Word of the Lord to share on how to Loving Discipline your child.

As she has so loving wrote, neither you nor your spouse or anyone else can not perfect your family. "But there is hope... GOD CAN!!!"

And due to the style and God being put first I am giving this book my rating of:

Author Amanda Beth share with us her own Spiritual journey from a place of brokenness to wholeness. In her book she shares her own experiences with God and how the Lord never gave up on her, even at times when she gave up on herself.

This book is a must read for any young women, who wants to discover what real love is really all about and how to find peace and contentment within herself. Amanda touch on many areas where the enemy deceive many of us. She shine the light on many tactics the enemy(Satan) uses to derail our families.

This book is also a great resource for any married couple. They will be edified by the content of this amazing book. All and all a great book. I'm so delighted that there are authors who are willing to share a piece of there own life journey with others. So that they through there personal experiences can help others. In our society today, where divorce figures are climbing every year. It is great to have books like these, that give us some hope for our future.

All and all a great book. I personally learned a lot from its content. Well done Amanda, may God bless you and your family even more. God bless

I loved reading Amanda Beth's book. It's a blessing and I plan on reading it again when I'm done with a couple other books. Her guidance and Bible shared through out the whole book encouraged me in my relationship with my husband. When I got to the part about divorce, what she had to say was so different from the its okay to divorce and get remarried Christian mentality that's out there today! I was so excited to share it with a family member who is having marital problems. I'm sure it will bless her immensely because she desires to follow the Lord in all matters and I think this will give her a foundation that will really strengthen her resolve and trust in the Lord for her husband and her marriage. So thankful for how it has helped my attitude and heart in my marriage too and my walk with the Lord! Truly blessed and thankful I found this book!
