The Busy Couple’s Guide to Sharing the Work and the Joy is a great book for couples! Each chapter of the book goes through different areas from time managment and schedules to managing yourself. You will see great advice on managine your family dinners among other things and there are little tips, quizes, and charts throughout the book to help you out. Not every family has the same situation when it comes to working, some families have one person working and some have both working, and there’s always someone who gets stuck with more work around the house than the other and many times we feel that it’s just not fair. This book has some great section to help with these problems. When you are done reading, be sure to give it to your significant other to read it over too! A definite must have!
I was recently given the opportunity to review the book The Busy Couple’s Guide to Sharing the Work and the Joy courtesy of Tyndale Media.
