Beyond the Brady Bunch

Beyond the Brady Bunch

"This book is a treasure chest of encouragement, hope, and inspiration for the blended family."
Dr. Gary Smalley, bestselling author of The Blessing and The Language of Love

Statistics tell the story of the American Family. Today there are more step-families than the original intact biological families that once made up the American norm. And, there are many Christian couples in relationships that are not blending, are wrought with disappointment, and are tempting those of faith to throw in the towel on the new family and on their spiritual life. Beyond the Brady Bunch is for those who want to keep their sanity and their spirituality in the uncharted territory of blending two families or homes. This book is not just for those remarried, but for any parent who is sharing custody of a child with another parent that is not living under the same roof.

Church needing some materials for a blended family class?

This book has questions at the end of each of the ten chapters. Perfect for small groups, home groups or classes.
