Turning Strangers into Siblings, with Vanessa Martindale
THIS MONTH’S PRAYER GUIDE: Praying God’s Word for Your Blended Family.
Are you a blended family concerned about helping your "his, mine, and ours" truly feel like family?
I'm nothing if not a child of the 90s, so when I think about THE blended family, I think about the Brady Bunch. I know reality is probably very far from that picture, so Vanessa Martindale, of Blended Kingdom Families, is here today to help us understand some of the most common challenges blended families face as they turn strangers into siblings.
In today's episode, we're talking about:
the emotions our children feel as they are forced to enter into a new family and gain new siblings
how parents can be proactive in helping the children of a new marriage feel like family, and...
- how to turn strangers into siblings.
Don’t miss this episode. Even if you aren’t a blended family, you know one. Take the time to understand them better when you tune in now!
Today's show is brought to you by our newest Prayer Guide, Praying God's Word for Your Blended Family, by Dorina Lazo Gilmore-Young.
Pray for God to work in your children’s hearts to:
- Trust in the Lord to provide for all their needs.
- Wait on the Lord to give them His best.
- Develop strong and lasting relationships
- Overcome pain and brokenness from their losses.
- Walk into their future confidently trusting in God's plan.
With heartfelt teaching from a blended family and scripture-inspired prayers this digital prayer guide is perfect for the busy mom who needs God to move in the hearts of her family.
She’s a wife of 20+ years and mom to two teenage boys who make their home in the mountains of Appalachia, calling southwestern Virginia home.
