Love it!

Thank you for doing this podcast! I’ve been in a serious relationship with my significant other for about two years and we’ve lived together for about one. There’s been a lot of adjustment and change that’s occurred and this podcast has given me insight in how to do so. Also, Melissa is so positive, fun and thoughtful!

Knowing We’re Not Alone!

Melissa! Your podcast has given me so much hope in the pure fact that my blended family, and the struggles that come along with that, are not alone. To hear from families that go through the daily grind to do what it takes to “grow together” is priceless! I feel as though I am sitting down with friends and learning about their learned wisdom, strengths and knowledge of what it took for them to make their family the very best that it can be. Super encouraging, thank you so much!

Blended is good-COVID comments not appropriate

I generally really like this podcast and I’ve been listening for two years; however, I’m getting tired of hearing the host’s opinions about the coronavirus. Please stick to blended family topics.
