About the Book

Comedic and instructive by turns, Pursuit of Happiness is sprinkled with the Latter-day Saint perspective, but families of all backgrounds will benefit from these ten concepts that work together to fortify your home life, such as Basic order creates a more heavenly ambience in our increasingly strong homes. Traditions are the beautiful trimmings on the fortresses of love we create with God. A marriage striving for ever increasing selflessness is the framework of a strong home. Our premortal home in heaven provides the ultimate blueprint for our loving earthly home. Pursuit of Happiness is infused with love: love for the Savior, love for the gospel, and a love of missionary work. This inspiring book is a perfect template for all who seek to enhance their spiritual connections and enjoy more love at home.

Book Synopsis

More Love at Home is an homage to the beautiful family-building doctrines and practices of LDS families. It's a template for new members, non-members, less active members looking to return, and of course, for all active members also seeking to enjoy More Love at Home: ). This book is infused with love: love for the Savior, love for the gospel, and (as subtext) a love of missionary work. It's comedic and instructive by turns, as each chapter discusses a different aspect of family life and how to enhance it. Families are the basic building block of society. When families are strong, we are all stronger. When they are weak, mankind suffers. Latter-Day Saints have a plethora of knowledge about how to properly build well-constructed families. It's more than time to bring that knowledge further out of obscurity and into the world

MaryJo Bell’s book is a treasure trove of exquisitely written stories and quotes that will incentivize your desire to improve the quality of your family life. Her self-deprecating style makes readers feel comfortable, yet she drives home eternally significant values in a courageous manner. The book is compelling and replete with delightful humor. You will want to read it straight through without stopping and give it to all your friends. —ROBYN ROMNEY EVANS, CALIFORNIA
