When a second marriage includes children, it often can lead to a less-than-fairy-tale life. This book uses humor to approach the often emotionally charged issues in blended families. Both authors provide useable methods for what to say when words dont come. Short, captivating chapters are perfect for those rare moments parents have to themselves.

We’re Not Blended We’re Pureed – Review by Martha A. Cheves, Author of Stir, Laugh, Repeat and Think With Your Taste Buds

A circle is a symbol of unity, eternity, and completeness. The wedding ring represents eternal love and the persistently renewed promises of a couple. Some Scandinavian women wear three bands: one each for engagement, wedding, and motherhood.

This is a nice look at stepfamily life with each chapter being a somewhat self-contained essay, so it's easy to pick up and read a chapter here and there.

This is all done from a Christian perspective and includes inspirational Bible verses at the end of each chapter.

What a delightful book! Not delightful as in fun to read, but as in full-of-heart and truth. As others have noted, the book is a blend of Diana Brandmeyer's first person accounts of her and her husband's second marriage (after each was widowed) and Marty Lintvedt's counselor analysis of what was going well and what could be thought through or done better. Diana's retelling had me giggling, tearing up, and wanting to reach out and hug her; Marty's analysis never came across as clinical and had me ...more
