Publisher's Summary

Create a Loving and Safe Environment for Your Blended Family 

Blended families face unique challenges, and sadly, good intentions aren’t always enough. With so many complex relationships involved, all the normal rules for family life change, even how you apply something as simple as the five love languages. 

That’s why Gary Chapman, the best-selling author of The Five Love Languages and national expert on stepfamilies, Ron Deal, join together in this book to teach you how the five love languages can help your blended family. They’ll teach you: 

  • About the unique dynamics of stepfamilies
  • How to overcome fear and trust issues in marriage
  • How to develop healthy parenting and step-parenting practices
  • How the love languages should - and should not - be applied

You’re going to face many challenges, but with the right strategies and smart work, your family can be stronger and healthier together.

Helpful Advice!

I was able to pick up some new pointers that im going to start right away. It makes sense and im excited to see the results.

There a little bit of religious connections and statements but if that doesn’t bother you, I’d read
it

Excellent Start to Understanding How to Blend Fami

Easy read, not complicated. Good analogies to understand and remember concepts. Both authors worth reading.

Fantastic book for insight and encouragement for blending families

This book provides many great real life examples and situations that you may be experiencing in your struggle to blend your family together. I keep referring back to it and taking more from it as I listen again in times of difficulty and needing some advice. Truly helpful to give you the understanding of what everyone is going through and ability to see different perspectives. I still have much work to do on my part but I’m grateful I found this book to help me as we “slow cook” our family into a great blend of flavors that we can all enjoy.

Just what we needed

I appreciated the explanations and depths of love discussed in this book. It's very comforting to know that a lot of my fears/reactions as well as my husband's and our children's were normal. I grew so much in understanding of our family. I think this is also a great book for those who struggle to understand emotions. You can learn what to do even when you don't understand, like learning a new language.
