Superwoman doesn't live here!

I marry a gorgeous executive, have a baby, lose all the weight (most of it), and move to a fine house in the suburbs with a welcoming new church. Wait...did I say welcoming?

One teeny waaah! and new mothers and their crying babies are exiled to a separate room. At least there's some enlightening conversation. Like about my husband and issues I didn't even know about!

And then there's my aptly named mother-in-law, Queen Elizabeth, who can't stand me.

I'm about to lose my mind! So it's high time for a visit to the Sassy Sistahood for some much-needed advice about men, marriage and motherhood!

The Sassy Sistahood: They get by with a little help from their friends.

Margie's Comments: Happily Even After is an enjoyable read—convicting, too. Tracey, a new mother, is still adjusting to marriage, a "nosy" mother-in-law, and a new church. In the shuffle she's lost her identity trying to conform to everyone's expectations for her. Many times hilarious, often thought-provoking, this an excellent portrayal of how most women struggle in these situations. I ended my reading of this third book in a series with a satisfied sigh. Definitely a must read, especially for those who find themselves in one or more of these situations.

Today's Bible reading: Genesis 23–24, Romans 8:22–38
