  • Of course, some will immediately think "Brady Bunch," while others think of fairy tales and the evil stepmother. You could think of the biblical family of Jacob, who had at least 13 children by four women (that was a mess), or the families of Abraham and David or of Jesus (that one worked out really well). Or what about the narrative of the church; sons and daughters, adopted by the King, grafted into his eternal family. Whichever one you pick, make sure your family narrative is written by God.

Ron: When you hear the word stepfamily, which narrative do you think of?

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

Ron: Of course, some will immediately think “Brady Bunch,” while others think of fairy tales and the evil stepmother. You could think of the TV shows like “Modern Family,” or “Drake & Josh,” or the film “Blended.” You could think of the biblical family of Jacob, who had at least 13 children by four women (that was a mess), or the families of Abraham and David or of Jesus (that one worked out really well). Or what about the narrative of the church; sons and daughters, adopted by the King, grafted into his eternal family.

Well, whichever one you pick, just make sure your family narrative is written by God. That’s how the story gets really good. For FamilyLife Blended I’m Ron Deal.
