We just celebrated 11 years of marriage. And I am happy to say that my marriage is stronger than ever and our blended family is in a really good place.
That’s not something I could have said seven years ago.
Like many couples in a blended family, we were headed for divorce. (Did you know two-thirds of all couples in stepfamilies end in divorce?)
The stress of trying to keep our marriage together while simultaneously trying to get this parenting/stepparenting thing right was too overwhelming.
But the good news is that we turned it around.

The Good News is for Everyone
Having a family that is thriving and not just surviving is not only for a lucky few. Everyone that has a blended family can share in the good news.
The Good News is that you can provide your children with a great model for having a healthy relationship and marriage.
The Good News is that you no longer have to do it alone, you now have the support of your spouse.
The Good News is that your children learn problem-solving skills when they learn to adapt to the new family.
The Good News is that your children now have more loving responsible adults in their lives.
The Good News is that you don’t have to face this alone, there are millions of couples that have faced the same challenges you are facing, and they can show you how they did it.
The Good News is that no matter where you are today, you don’t have to stay there.
If you get the tools you need to address the issues you are facing in your family, you will be able to transform your family from where it is today to where you’ve always wanted it to be.
And that’s exactly what we did to turn things around. We didn’t come into our marriage with the skills we needed to face the unique challenges that blended families face. And they blindsided us and almost took us out…but the good news is that they didn’t!
