Marriage can be tough ... Remarriage can be even tougher!

Blended families face unique challenges. That doesn’t make them better or worse, just… different. Understanding the factors that make stepfamilies distinct is critical. It can make the difference between a blended family that is floundering and one that is built on a solid foundation of love and trust.

Join Smart Stepfamilies founder Ron Deal for this series of seven short videos (roughly 6-8 minutes each) called “Thriving Stepfamilies: Overcoming Common Challenges in Blended Families.”

He’ll offer insightful, practical tips, informed by years of ministering to blended families, to help you and your loved ones experience harmony in your household. Along the way, you’ll find discussion questions and additional resources to help your blended family thrive.
