Blended Family One on One Class

Contact: Linda White

  For lack of guidance a nation falls,
    but victory is won through many advisers. Proverbs 11:14   Description Blended families are unique.  As much as we’d like our family to be like a “typical” family, there are special circumstances and challenges. This class offers clear advice on how to solve common challenges faced by all who enter a second marriage with children. We have a desire to come alongside Blended Families and share what we have learned.     The writer of Colossians gives us clarity in how we should approach our personal challenges…..

12 Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. 13 Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.14 And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. Colossians 3:12-14
