About the Book
About the Author
A blended family is a gift from God, but one that brings with it distinct challenges—other people’s opinions, our children’s difficulty adjusting, and our own unmet expectations, to name a few. Not to mention trying to keep romance alive! But God intends for your blended family to join together as one in Him—and not only to survive but also to thrive!
If you are a blended family or about to become one, this workbook is for you. Willie and Rachel Scott have taken their personal experience as a blended family and created this six-week study for families seeking to blend gracefully into one. Intended to be done with a group or as a couple, the Better than Blended Workbook covers various topics—from discovering your unique family journey to dealing with hurts from your past to helping your kids adjust—and helps you to be intentional about developing unity and drawing closer to God as a cohesive family unit.
As children, Willie and Rachel Scott both experienced life in a blended-family home. When they became a blended-family themselves, they prayed that with his three children and her two, their own blended-family journey would be better than what they had experienced as children. God answered that prayer, and they now have a beautiful family of seven children ranging from infant to adult. Willie, a youth mentor and award-winning community advocate, who worked for Cuyahoga Metropolitan Housing Authority for over 15 years. Rachel, a teacher and author, is a graduate of Kansas State University and the University of Mary and has written the e-booklet 7 Ways to Deal with Conflict in Co-Parenting. Their shared passion for Christ and for encouraging youth and families led Willie and Rachel to found Better than Blended, a ministry devoted to encouraging, mentoring, and equipping blended families to become pillars of strength and awesome testimonies of the sustaining power of God’s truth.
