Product Description


"Trista Sutter has written a breezy, warm and friendly reminder about the power and benefits of gratitude. And I'm grateful that she did!"--Tom Bergeron, Host, Dancing with the Stars "As a mommy of four, it is so important for me to teach my children to live their lives with a grateful heart. I thank Trista, my fellow mom-ista, for all the tips, stories, and research on how to do that. It's also a great reminder for us parents too!"--Tori Spelling, actress and bestselling author "We call Trista the 'godmother' of The Bachelor franchise for a reason. She stands for everything that's good about our show and life--and that shines through in her book. After reading Happily Ever After, I'm even more proud to call her my friend."--Chris Harrison, Host, The Bachelor "As a two-time cancer survivor and co-founder of the charity organization, Grassroot Soccer, I know the undeniable value of gratitude. Whether you are giving or receiving, Happily Ever After shows us what I have come to accept as truth--in order to fully live a happy life, you must acknowledge the gifts that life has to offer and be thankful for all of them...big and small."--Ethan Zohn, 2002 winner of Survivor "This book is a wonderful reminder that in everything we do we should give thanks. From the beautiful life-changers to the everyday little things to the struggles that break us down, EVERYTHING is a gift and it's important for us to acknowledge that."--Ali Landry, actress and model, and Miss USA 1996 "Happily Ever After is profound, passionate and practical. These stories of gratitude will move, inspire and touch you--you will not be able to live your life the same way."--Lee M. Brower, Founder, Empowered Wealth, LC, Business Family Coach, author, speaker, and featured teacher on gratitude in the book and movie, The Secret "Trista is someone who exudes light and joy, and I'm grateful that she's harnessed some of that for this uplifting, full-of-healthy-tidbits book about the importance and fun of having an optimistic view of the world. Thanks, Trista!"--Kimberly Williams-Paisley, actress Ciao Bella, November 2013 "A wonderful holiday read!", 11/27/13 "Part autobiography, part self-help book...If you could use a heartwarming read or a reminder of how we can all live with gratitude, take a read of Happily Ever After.", 12/2/13 "Sutter has such a positive outlook on life and she reflects that in this book.", 12/3/2013 "The anecdotes woven through the book feel real and sincere...In a world of over-indulged and self-serving celebrities, it's nice see someone who knows how good they have it and is willing to share her feelings openly." BookViews blog, 12/31/2013 "I have no doubt this book could help someone hoping their dream of lasting love come true and wondering, perhaps, why it hasn't yet.", 1/4/14 "[A] heart-warming book.", 1/9/2014 "Trista's optimism and passion for life is an inspiration for all and her new book Happily Ever After will inspire you to see each day with a different perspective.

[Sutter] presents common sense and helpful advice for looking on the bright side of life...A good read for her fans."

Product Description

Trista Rehn was a pediatric physical therapist moonlighting as a Miami Heat dancer when she heard about casting for a new reality show—one guy getting to know twenty-five girls in the hope of finding a fiancée. As improbable and crazy as it sounded, Trista took the chance—and had her heart broken on the very first season of The Bachelor. But the next season, as the first Bachelorette, her fairy tale fell into place during a whirlwind courtship with poetry-writing firefighter Ryan Sutter and, eventually, a dream-come-true wedding on national TV.

In the midst of building a life with Ryan and raising two kids, Trista started to make a conscious effort to remember her favorite part of each day. And she’s made sure to post these thoughts, her own personal expressions of gratitude, almost every night on Twitter and Facebook—even on days she was dealing with fertility issues, a difficult pregnancy, family deaths, and other challenges that many of us face.

Sometimes it’s the smallest gestures and the most unassuming things that can have the greatest effects. Trista is often asked her secret to being one of the rare reality-TV relationships to make it to the altar and beyond. In this heartfelt book, she shares the simple yet profound keys to finding everyday happiness: gratitude and grace. From the blink-and-you’ll-miss-them moments we have with our kids, our spouses, our pets, or even strangers, to the more obvious lessons we pick up from reading the news or hearing an inspirational story, knowing how to recognize, accept, and be grateful for all of our daily blessings is truly what “happily ever after” means.

5.0 out of 5 stars Big Trista Fan -- Fantastic and Encouraging Read 2 Dec 2013
By AvidReader47 - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
HAPPILY EVER AFTER – The Life Changing Power of a Grateful Heart by Trista Sutter is definitely one of my favorite books of 2013. This is not only because I love Trista and have followed her and Ryan since she appeared on The Bachelorette in 2002, but because she is such an inspiration. Happily Ever After is not only filled with stories of grace, thoughtfulness, and thankful words, but has bits and pieces of their life mixed in including poems and letters she received from Ryan (my favorite: “Why Socks?”). Throughout the book, she encourages you to be grateful for even the smallest of blessings in life including “socks.” Fantastic and encouraging read. Highly recommended. Received courtesy of Net Galley.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read for anyone in search of a little happiness...that sticks! 13 Jan 2014
By Heather H. - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read Trista's book a few months ago at a time when I was a little down and thinking a lot about how to do life better. From start to finish I found myself smiling all the way through, catching her contagious happiness as it jumped right off the pages and into my life. She's discovered a little key to happiness...daily gratitude, which really is quite life altering once you start to live this way. Feeling gratitude from time to time we can perhaps all do, but it is in exercising it daily that we begin to see and live life better. In living with gratitude my confidence, generosity, relationships and contentment have all soared and I am grateful for Trista's reminder of this little key to happiness that we all have within us.

5.0 out of 5 stars Happily Ever After: The Life-Changing Power of a Grateful Heart 13 Jan 2014
By Anita Fernandez - Published on
I have never met Trista and like many others have only come to know a little about her from seeing her journey on the Bachelorette. In seeing her down to earth, caring personality and the love she has for her family through interviews etc.I was SO excited to read her first book Filled with so many touching stories, and wonderful advice I HIGHLY recommend this book for yourself and also as a wonderful gift for someone you love. I read the entire book, on a 4 hour plane was THAT good! You not only get to get a small glimpse into her everyday family life and the love that her and Ryan share for each other and their children, but it is filled with touching stories, some that will bring tears to your eyes, and hints for all of us to incorporate into our lives. For example: to never take a moment of this life for granted, to everyday let those you love, know it in small ways just how much they mean to you , and to forever be grateful for this life. Trista's outlook, and love for life, is truly contagious and validates that if you try to look for the positive, even when times are at their hardest , you will not only get through it, but will be stronger for it. In reading her book, you truly can find your Happily Ever After too.

3.0 out of 5 stars Happy I read It 20 Mar 2014
By Purplepassion - Published on
I am happy that I read it. However, it was only an okay read. This is because it was a bit repetative. It also felt a bit preachy. I wouldn't recommend people read this book.
