  • When two people marry and form a blended family they hope their children and extended family will become family. But what if a family member refuses to embrace the family? Now, that question frustrates me because I don't have a good answer. How do you make someone love you who won't? What you can do is pursue but don't badger. Take what they give you and build on it. And, don't beat yourself up. Stay as close as they'll allow you, and pray diligently while you wait for them to turn around.

Ron: Have you ever tried to talk someone into loving you?

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

Ron: When two people marry and form a blended family they hope that their children and extended family will become family to one another. So, when someone asks me how they can build a bridge to a family member who refuses to embrace the family, I know their dream isn’t becoming reality. Now, that question frustrates me because I don’t have a good answer. How do you make someone love you who just won’t?

What you can do is pursue but don’t badger. And take what they give you and build on it. What you can’t do is beat yourself up. Stay as close as they’ll allow you, and pray diligently while you wait for them to turn around. For FamilyLife Blended I’m Ron Deal.
