I was sent an email requesting me to read this book. At first I was offended by the title of the book Modern Trophy Wife. Seriously? I decided I would do the one thing I never do request a book so I could tear it apart.

It give ideas on help to build a stronger marriage even with some of the "old fashion" ideas I found they worked in my life.
I think I highlighted so much of this book it is a rainbow of colors. I feel inspired to become a better me and when that happens it help create a better family life at home as well as a closer and deeper connection with my husband.
(Page 124 "There is a saying that relationships have to be 50\50 but I argue that it takes each person giving 100% for a marriage to thrive)
Anyone in therapy has heard these same words spoken many times so it drives home many points I have already learned.
A lot of what was written I already do with my husband which tells me I am on the right track to be a better me.
(Page 131 "Conflicts are unavoidable but communication is the tool you use to navigate these difficult situations.")
