A blended family is such an important topic because it’s dealing with so many lives, not just that of you and your spouse. You have your kids and your spouses kids of course, but you also have the other sets of parents to contend with (if there is shared custody). With so many cooks in the kitchen, it can make sanity hard to come by on some days. We can lose our way in the midst of chaos, jealousy, insecurity, frustration, anger, confusion, miscommunication, and power struggles. This podcast is dedicated to lessons my husband and I have learned from previously being married, divorced, parenting, co-parenting, step-parenting, blending a family, re-marrying, surviving daddy issues (me not him lol), going through years of therapy (again, me not him ha), having a relationship with God, listening to and absorbing wisdom from others, and having some of the best friends anyone could hope for! It is our hope that this offers all who take the time to read what we have to say, a perspective that makes for consideration or just some good-old-fashioned food-for-thought. If we can save one person, or couple, from any of our many mistakes, it would mean more than any treasure ever could.
