What are some of the unique challenges for blended families? With the number of marriages that are blended nearing 50% of all marriages, it's vital that churches begin to understand how to best support and minister to moms, dads, and children in blended families. Scott and Vanessa Martindale have a heart for helping couples navigate the process of blending a family in a healthy way. They join Ken and Deb to share their own story and talk about the resources available to equip and educate blended families and help them flourish as Kingdom families.
