How do you blend two separate families into one household? Family traditions, values, interests, and parenting styles are often so far apart that simple questions like, “Who takes out the trash?” or “Where shall we go for Christmas?” can quickly become flashpoints of conflict.
Winston T. Smith provides a road map to the unique challenges that each member of a stepfamily faces. Drawing on his experience as a marriage and family counselor, Winston Smith shows how understanding each other’s struggles, honest sharing, and sacrificial love can transform and unify your stepfamily. As you learn to practically apply these biblical principles, you will find that there are also unique blessings to be found in your new, blended family.
There are many difficult issues that affect step families and a 24 page booklet like this can only touch on a few of them, and only in a broad way. But this little booklet is more helpful and full of Gospel comfort and hope than I could have imagined. It applies the truth of the Gospel wonderfully well into the step family situation. The hope, grace, love of Jesus are brought to bear on the issues of honesty, favouritism and loyalty in a sensitive and clear way. The author writes, "it should fill you with hope to know that God's family is a step family too." It did indeed fill my wife and me with hope.
