Welcome to the podcast BLENDING THE FAMILY

BlendingTheFamily.com

Jun 30, 2017

My first book "25 Tips for Divorced Dads" is what this episode is about. Telling your kids that you love them is such a vital need and as parents we need to tell them and show what love means.

 

Tip number 4 from the book is "Tell them EVERYDAY that you LOVE them. For example even if I do not see my son Connor I make it a routine to give him a call. If he is not answering his phone then I leave a message and telling him "I LOVE YOU."

 

You can head over to blendingthefamily.com and get not only my book but the kids coloring book too "Ten Tips On How To Survive Your Parents Divorce."

The authors of the book “Daily Bread for the Starving Stepmom” Laurabeth Hoisington and Melanie Anthony join me on the podcast to talk about their ministry The Starving Stepmom. These two ladies created a devotional book that was truly inspired by a “Higher Power.”

 

  • Pain of the biological parent when having to pick between their kids and their marriage.
  • The question comes up again “should the kids come first” when dating with kids?
  • The benefits of premarital counseling.
  • Do churches have a “blind eye” in the world of blended families?
  • The article we mentioned from the Huffington Post.
  • How can women help men with communication?
  • Who is the “Starving Stepmom.”
  • Tweet them @starvingstepmom

This episode was a bit personal because of the struggles trying to find my own faith. Honestly the message that Melanie and Laurabeth bring is of great value to any family.  For example I find myself doing more Bible reading to just to look for more of a perspective as my life has its down days. Currently I am reading the Book of Proverbs. Lately there are things that I am doing where the foundation is very much faith based. My wife Ann and I are going through the Dave Ramsey Financial Peace University; one of the speakers for the course is a New York Times Bestselling Author Jon Acuff. One of Jon’s books is titled “Start” and this is one of the books that I am reading.

 

Have fun listing to this episode with the Starving Step Mom’s.

This episode will talk about where we had made changes to our banking. 

According to Dave Ramsey 52 percent of divorces are cased by money issues. You need to have those hard talks. You should also help your kids out by getting them on the right path.

My wife Ann and I are attending through our local church Financial Peace University that was created by Dave Ramsey. Many of the lessons we are learning brings back of how in our marriage that we still need help navigating through the world of money.

 

I want to present to you one of our early podcast episodes where we do talk honestly about our struggles and honestly we still do but I feel that we now have a better plan with the course.

 

Neither Ann and I are affiliated with Dave Ramsey but this could save your marriage, as well as mine.

This has been a week from HELL when it comes my finances. The lawnmower needed work and then the hard drive on my computer crashed.

 

While these life “OH CRAP” moments sucked these were lessons involved at the same time.
