Publisher's Description

"From 'all cracked up' to 'stronger in the broken places'ⷕthat's how our blended family has transitioned from the heartache of divorce to the happy, devoted relationships we enjoy today."

It's estimated that more than half the Christians filling our churches today have been through a divorce and remarriage, often bringing children into new and unfamiliar family circumstances. One of those people is multiple Grammy and Dove award-winner Sandi Patty, whose marriage to Don Peslis in 1995 resulted in a rambunctious household of her own four kids plus three stepchildren and an adopted son.

In Life in the Blender, Sandi shares the lessons she has learned, beginning with the painful experience of having to publicly acknowledge her shameful extramarital affair and examining how her own poor choices are still affecting her children today. But she also describes how she has moved on from those difficult days of heartache and today has a renewed and vibrant closeness, not only with her husband, children, and stepchildren, but also with her Savior and her church.

Live in the Blender is her poignant and often humorous account of how they got thereⷕthe lessons they learned, the priorities they kept, and the practical decisions that helped smooth the lumps out of their blended family's everyday life.

    Any Sandi Patty fan would love this book. In fact, any mothers out there should read it. She provides insight from her life experiences as a way to encourage Christian women to "fight the good fight."

    As a facilitator for parenting classes, I thought this would be insightful. I found honesty and personal accountability regarding the affair and its devastating impact on her children. But I also found excuses. Chuck Swindoll offers an interesting perspective in Christ at the Crossroads about Christian "notables" not being back in the limelight when there are hurting ex-spouses and children. I wonder if Sandi's issues would be better off handled out of the limelight than on the printed page.

    I thought this was a great book with some good ideas on how to smooth the blending process. Many of her ideas I had already discovered but some were new to me and it was at least filled with humor and helped me to put things in perspective.

    When my counselor suggested this book as a tool in forming my own blended family, I must admit I resisted. Like Sandy and Don, most of us did not plan to find ourselves in blended family setting. "Life in the Blender" is a open and honest book sharing the up and downs of their family. Sandy Patti shares how with God's help and being willing to make mistakes, we can do it successfully. I really appreciate her willing to share from her mistakes as well as successes. This book is a helpful resource for other step families just needed to know they are OK.

    I think this book is very helpful to blended families, as well as any big family. Sandi is so real, as well as being open and honest! I just love that! The fact that Sandidescribes her difficult days and her heartache,and then tells about her closeness with her family and savior today, as well as her church, lets the readers know they are not alone and gives them hope and a goal to strive for. She lets people know that everyone has ups and downs and you will have good days as well as bad, but that through it all, our God is there leading you all the way!
