  • Many modern stepfamily weddings include the Blending of the Family Sands ceremony in which each adult and child pours a vase of sand into a larger vase signifying the new family. The sand symbolizes the couple's journey into love, but it's just the beginning for the kids and the entire family. The ceremony doesn't create familyness...life does. Remain dedicated to the process of merging your sand while you embrace your evolving mosaic as a family. Pour yourself in and trust God with the process.

Ron: Were there any rituals at your wedding?

Announcer: For FamilyLife Blended®, here’s Ron Deal.

Ron: Weddings have little rituals, like exchanging wedding rings or lighting a Unity Candle. Many modern stepfamily weddings include the Blending of the Family Sands ceremony in which each adult and child pours a vase of sand into a larger vase signifying the new family.

Couples need to realize—the sand symbolizes their journey into love, but it’s just the beginning for the kids and the entire family. The ceremony doesn’t create familyness…life does. The trick is to remain dedicated to the process of merging your sand while embracing your evolving mosaic as a family. Pour yourself in and trust God with the process of becoming family. For FamilyLife Blended, I’m Ron Deal.
