  • When politicians reach across the aisle-that ideological dividing line of partisanship-and work together things get done. Sometimes families need to do the same. In today's complex blended families, there could be a gap in step-relationships that can only be filled when someone builds a bridge. When asked about her stepgrandfather, she said, "Even after five years I don't know him. We've only interacted a few times." There's great potential here, but only if someone reaches across the aisle.

Maybe it’s time you reached across the aisle.

Ron: Maybe it’s time you reached across the aisle.

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

Ron: When politicians reach across the aisle—that ideological dividing line of partisanship—and work together things get done. Sometimes families need to do the same thing. In today’s complex blended families, there could be a gap in step-relationships that can only be bridged when someone makes an effort to build a bridge. When asked about their stepgrandfather, one person said, “Even after five years I don’t know him well. We’ve only interacted a few times.” Her brother said, “There’s not much there; we’ve only shared about 100 words.”

There’s great potential in this family, but only if someone reaches across the aisle. For FamilyLife Blended, I’m Ron Deal.
