Are you part of a blended family

Have you been struggling to make everyone in your home feel special and equal? From step-brothers and step-sisters to live-in grandparents and adopted children, blending a family is a complicated and long process. 

With the help of Daren Carstens and his wife Laura, you will walk through a step by step process and be led into a peaceful, productive family life, marriage, and personal life. 

Are you divorced? Have you adopted a child? Or has grandma moved in to the spare bedroom? 

All of these things are examples of the components that make a blended family so difficult to transition into a cohesive unit.

This book will help you manage your marriage, whether it is a new marriage after divorce or death, in which you are blending two previous families into one. 

You will get tips of the trade from an experienced family, along with the inspiration that it takes to help you create a foundation that will withstand any storm.

Packed full of quotes and stories, this book will also help you ease your stress over your new situation, bickering within your family, and the personal trauma that every person in the family unit goes through after a big change. 

You will learn to regain your love for each other and your passions in life and explore those passions as a family, set to tackle the world together. 

Throughout this book we will explore how to handle the tensions between new siblings by teaching brothers and sisters to become lifelong friends. 

When you look inside you will see that Daren explores different theories on how to stop jealousy between siblings, how to assure that everyone in the household feels special, and creative ways to celebrate each other on a daily basis. 

You will learn how to deal with marital disagreements and how the way that you deal with those disagreements will affect the rest of your family. 

You will gain insight into why our behavior is so important to the rest of the family and how to decide whether or not you need more help within your blended family. 

If a friend of yours is dealing with this situation, then this book is the perfect gift. If you are in a blended family or you have a family member who is in this situation, the advice and leadership that Daren Carstens, along with his wife Laura, will give you, will prove to be an invaluable gift.
