Tying your blended family together for life by building your home on the solid foundation of Christ, commitment, and communication.
Blended families are an occurrence that are more common and affect more people today than ever before. The divorce rate for first marriages in America today is at 51 percent and even higher for second marriages with children. 65% of remarriages involve children from a prior marriage on at least one side, creating a blending family.
In the best of circumstances, stepparenting can dampen the enthusiasm of any marriage. Simple problems that are challenging to manage in a traditional home can turn explosive in a blended family.
Tying the Family Knot is a very practical and biblical book that can help make a blended family situation work, and it is written by someone who has been there and blended her own family successfully. If you are wondering, "How does a Christian do this?" Terri Clark offers hope and clear, commonsense advice to couples struggling with the emotional challenges of blending their family as Christians.
