If you are discouraged because your blended family doesn't quite live up to Mike and Carol Brady's "perfect" family, help is on the way. Claiming that there's no "happily ever after" except on TV, Ray & Debbie Alsdorf share their experience as parents and step-parents. They speak honestly about their mistakes and show how God helped them restore, heal, and rebuild their family. Paperback.
A message of hope for blended families, from a couple who have been in the trenches - and made it.
Blending a family is far more messy and complicated than any television show portrays. Beyond the Brady Bunch is a heart book, not a how-to book. Christians who find themselves in the midst of step-family life often feel hopeless and far from God, struggling with grief and unforgiveness. From personal experience the authors have found that all the how-to steps in the world dont work if there isnt first a heart change. Speaking with honesty and vulnerability they share their own mistakes and how God dealt with their hearts. The book will help stretch hearts, minds and homes past the image of "perfect" and another "happily ever after" into the hope of Gods promise to restore, heal and rebuild.
Ray and Debbie Alsdorf have experienced the challenges of blending their family firsthand. Married for 20 years, they are the parents of four adult children from their previous marriages. They serve as counselors for New Hope Ministries, are Biblical lay counselors and members of AACC. Debbie is the founder of Design4Living and a popular speaker, author, and director of womens ministries. Ray and Debbie reside in Northern California.
This book is a treasure chest of encouragement, hope and inspiration for the blended family. It has been said that some families cannot blend, they can only collide. Not true. The Alsdorf family have collided well. They are the real deal and a beautiful picture of a fantastic blended family. - Dr. Gary Smalley, best-selling author of The Blessing and The Language of Love
