This book is such an encouragement! My step family life is a process, slow maybe, but at least I can now see the light at the end of the tunnel. This book provides info on different situations that may arise and gives you the tools to deal with them! I feel like Ron Deal has secretly been watching my family and knows exactly what I'm going through! I will be sharing this book! It's a lifesaver, or should I say marriage/family saver!
Quite simply, The Smart Stepfamily is possibly the most important resource I could recommend for anyone who is either experiencing difficulties in a stepfamily situation, or for those who are contemplating or are committed to becoming a a stepfamily.
Ron Deal's message is unmatched in it's relevance, as well as it's delivery.
Please, do yourself, and those you love, a huge favor. Read this book. Even better, see if your church offers a small group study on The Smart Stepfamily.
I read the book and watched the videos as part of a small group study at Celebration Church in Jacksonville, FL, and can't recommend these materials more highly.
