Ann Romney in her latest project — a New York Times bestseller, “The Romney Family Table” — said she and her husband are at peace with their failed bid for the White House, falling back on their faith to pull them through their disappointment and move on with their lives.

“You know,” she said, in The Blaze, “we came off a pretty disappointing defeat, and having to have yourself well-grounded and having the faith that we do and the family that surrounds us — it made it a very easy adjustment for us to recognize that life goes on, and life is good, and our real joy and happiness is coming from other things. And we’re very much at peace and finding great joy in our lives right now.”

Mrs. Romney’s literary work is part recipe book, part political revelation, part family commentary — all woven together by the Mormon faith that guides the family, complete with five sons and 22 grandchildren, on a daily basis.

“It’s … a part of how we live our lives. It’s part of the fabric of who we are,” she said, The Blaze reported. “It is what I believe made our children so strong and gave them the ability to stand on their own two feet, being very committed to … principles in their lives and having stand true and strong, even though the world might be telling them something different.”

Mrs. Romney, who has multiple sclerosis, said all proceeds from her book’s sale will go toward neurological research.
