On a whim, she started the blog HappyWivesClub.com and sent the link to a few of new friends. What started as a casual invitation to five women exploded into an international online club with 150,000 members in more than 100 countries.

KC @ Average: More or Less5 Stars Out Of 5Loved it!April 29, 2014KC @ Average: More or LessQuality: 5Meets Expectations: 5I was pleasantly surprised by this book. I honestly expected a preachy, Proverbs 31-type homily, but Happy Wives Club is a well-written, refreshing journal of Weaver's travels, the people she met and her own personal discoveries throughout her journey. I especially enjoyed reports on how happy marriages are built and maintained in non-Western cultures. It was good to learn that that marriage is both hard and rewarding no matter where your location. As a bonus, Weaver's 12 conclusions or â€˜secrets' to what make up a great marriage are real, common sense ideas that are both tangible and attainable to all who are willing to commit to be a happy wife. I look forward to other books by Fawn Weaver.

ChooseWiselyFredericksburg, VAAge: 25-34Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Delightful readFebruary 4, 2014ChooseWiselyFredericksburg, VAAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4There is so much about this book that I was so excited about! The cover itself is lovely and begs to be read. I was excited. The idea of the book is fantastic. Marriage advice from around the world is an intriguing thought. Who doesn't want to live happily ever after?
The book begins in California with a brief introduction on how Fawn Weaver began to think about a journey to uniting happy wives and discovering what it was that made them happy. Her first interview with a widow left me anticipating what other wives might have to say.
As I continued reading I became a little disappointed. I feel like the focus of the book was the travel, food, and destination instead of the inside scoop of happy marriages. There are definitely golden nuggets of wisdom in every interview. My favorite was the last with Kristine Carlson. You really get a close up look at her relationship with her husband and what made it successful. My least favorite destination was Italy. I was believing from the beginning of the chapter that God was going to provide an amazing interview. Needless to say, that doesn't happen.
I couldn't help but think of this book as a Christian Eat, Pray, Love. It's a little heavy on the Eat and a light on the Love. Regardless of my disappointment, I will probably use this book for my ladies book club. It is great for stirring conversation. Beyond that, how fun would it be to make theme nights for discussion groups??
I was given this book free from the publisher with no compensation other than the joy of reading a book.
loreallepaAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Amazing Book!!!January 27, 2014loreallepaAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5In a time when the world basically hates marriage, this book was a breath of fresh air! Actually, this book was awesome! It was interesting to read through each individual woman's story and see her marriage through her words. I found myself nodding in agreement as she brought me into the lives of many different couples.
This was a well written book each chapter, every country that she visited, and every wife she interviewed I clearly was able to take something away about marriage. Isn't it amazing that, all around the world, women have the same outlook on marriage!
I realized how blessed I am and how happy I am in my role as wife to my best friend. I would recommend this to anyone, especially those who are tired of "self-help" or "improvement" books. This is fantastic and truly inspiring!
Want to check it out for yourself? The book is now available in stores and on Christian Book Store. What a perfect bridal shower or wedding gift for a friend or family member!
This book was provided to me free of charge by booksneeze.com in return for my honest review. The opinions i have expressed are my own.
