  • Stepfamilies are filled with loyalty wars so what every family needs is a grandparent who refuses to play the chess match competing for people's loyalties. They love all grandchildren, whether biological or step, and spend time with them and celebrate who they are. And, when the blame wars start between homes they're not manipulated by agendas and quietly remind family members to extend forgiveness. This kind of grace ripples throughout a family tree and seeds life into a blended family.

Ron: Today’s blended family…needs a grace-filled grandparent.

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

Ron: Stepfamilies are filled with loyalty wars—worries that new people will push out the old. What every family needs is a grandparent who refuses to play the chess match competing for people’s loyalties. You know, like not worrying about whether grandchildren are biological or step, they just love on all of them and spend time with them and celebrate who they are. And, when the blame wars start between homes they’re not manipulated by the agendas of others, they just quietly and powerfully remind family members to extend forgiveness.

This kind of grace ripples throughout a family tree and seeds life into a blended family—and we need more of it. For FamilyLife Blended I’m Ron Deal.
