Happy Families?

"We have our jobs. We work on those. We have our hobbies. We work on those. We have our bodies. We work on those. We know from research that families are central to our happiness, but we spend precious little time working on them. What we have just realized is if you take small steps, you can actually make your family happier."

That's the line from the this 15 minute interview I heard the other day on the radio (click below to listen to the interview in its entirety) that made me buy the book The Secrets of Happy Families by Bruce Feiler. He breaks down families into the things we all do—love, fight, eat, play, fool around, spend money, make pivotal life decisions—and tried to discover ways to do them better. I hope you enjoy this book as much as we do. We're reading a few pages every evening after supper. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Enjoy!!!
