This book was very encouraging to me. It hits on important topics and inspires thought, but the examples tended to be of successful couples--highlighting what made them successful. I liked that a lot better than other books that highlight all the negative examples.
Just found this book at a stepfamily conference here in Dallas. WONDERFUL. This is some of the most Godly, encouraging, positive advice and information I've seen anywhere! No wonder it's been endorsed by Beverly LaHaye, Willow Creek and others. I love this book; I am buying a copy for my friend who is a brand-new stepmom.
This book has touched my heart in so many ways. My dads father walked out on grandma when my dad was five, and it impacted our family even through my teenage years. I grew up not really understanding why Daddys heart was still hurting, and I didnt realize until my own marriage that I had inherited that same pain and fear of being abandoned, divorced and rejected. Happily Remarried has given my husband and I the ammunition to destroy those fears, protect our marriage, and understand the hearts of those we love who have suffered through the pain of divorce. A HUGE thank you to David and Lisa for sharing their wealth of experience in this sensitive area! It is so beautifully written, I felt like they were in my living room, sharing iced tea and having a long hearttoheart conversation. Bless you for writing this book!
How refreshing! A book about remarried couples that is simple, direct, and so very helpful. There's great advice about parenting, money management, resolving your conflicts, and more. As someone who lives in a blended family (his kids, my kids, and now one daughter together) I found this book extremely helpful. The pages are already dog-eared where I've gone back to the book for reminders. I recommend this book for any woman (or man) who is getting remarried, thinking about remarriage, or already living in a blended family. Clear, simple, readable --- well done!
