Why Her?

I'm so excited! My Aunt Becky's new book "Why Her?" is now available on Amazon, Kindle and probably some other places too! She wrote it with her 3 daughter-in-laws; Lisa, Rhonda and Lizzy, and I can't wait to read it!

"Three years ago, while on a vacation with extended family, my three daughters-in-law and I were talking about the relationship difficulties so many mothers-in-law and daughters-in-law have. We figured at least part of the reason for that could be attributed to the fact that a mother-in-law and daughter-in-law love the same man-one tends to see him as someone she should help protect, and the other perceives him as her protector. Such very different viewpoints are a set up for relationship issues. So, we wondered out loud, "Why do we all get along so well?" The four of us are Christians and that certainly lays a wonderful groundwork for the potential for good relationships, but we are not similar in personality or passions. And to say our tastes in music, literature, fashion, politics, or childrearing are varied would be an understatement-but get along, we do! In fact, we truly love each other. So, we did what in hindsight seems impossible-we four women wrote a book! Well, to be more exact, we wrote two books in one! Lisa, Rhonda, and Lizzy's side of the book is entitled "Why Her? You, Your Mother-In-Law, And The Big Picture." My side of the book is entitled "Why Her? You, Your Daughter-In-Law, And The Big Picture." Our book isn't a "how to" book, but a "why to" book. We chose that emphasis because we think that if a woman knows why a good relationship matters, she is better equipped to design her role in her relationships in a way that can make those relationships better. We hope you will find the book to be helpful and an entertaining read! -- Becky Hunter, co-author of "Why Her?"
