Blended Families

    The Brady Bunch seemed to have it so easy, but anyone struggling to join their family in a new marriage after divorce or death knows that problems are never solved in thirty minute episodes. "Tying the Family Knot" relates the hardships and the hard knocks of blending families from the perspective of one who went through the fire of divorce, remarriage and step-motherhood herself. The warm, engaging style of this book encourages readers to shatter the statistics of divorce in second marriages by making Christ, commitment and communication the knot for blending families to wrap around.

    Filled with practical tips and foundational wisdom for stepfamilies, each page examines the every-day struggles of a swiftly growing but largely ignored domestic population--the blended family. Terri Clark uses her years of professional speaking experience to weave stories from her own life into a powerful testimony of how God tied together a family of tangles and frayed ends. Addressing challenges ranging from power struggles, and expanding households to holiday visitation exchanges, couples will find tactful solutions and spiritual guidance in this scripture-based outline for successful blending.

Terri Clark is a popular guest on numerous radio programs nationwide including:
