Blending Your StepFamily: The Stages of Blending

Pam Thumbnail Big

[display_podcast] Blending your stepfamily can feel like you are literally in a blender:  being blended, chopped and pureed.  However, the goal is feeling a sense of unity, harmony and familial cooperation (I mean, let’s face it, no family – even non-blended families are perfectly peaceful). Blending is a mixing and mingling of the family, so as to produce the desired result of unity or of feeling of “oneness”.

[display_podcast] You will experience hurt, fear, frustration, and feelings of injustice.  I’m sorry. It happens to all of us. And then you die. But it doesn’t have to lead to sin. You see, if we allow ourselves to enter into a sinful attitude following the hurt, fear, frustration and feelings of injustice… then what?  Anger, rage, destruction? I submit that if you understand the source of sin and when somebody sins they have a problem with God, and not you, then you don’t have to get mad in r … [Read more...]

Pam Thumbnail Big

[display_podcast] Let’s talk about our hearts today. Scripture says in Proverbs. 4:23:“Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.” In other words, we live our lives from our hearts.

Luke 6:45 says:“The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For out of the overflow of his heart his mouth spe … [Read more...]

[display_podcast] Think of a chain of islands under attack.  The enemy hits weekly with long-range bombers.   When you stay in sin, you “lose an island” to the enemy and he builds another airstrip and now sends medium range bombers three times a week.  You continue to stay in sin, he takes yet another island, builds yet another airstrip and hits you daily now with fighter cover. What you need to do is TAKE BACK the ground that the enemy had previously gained!  When we do this, we can put the ene … [Read more...]

[display_podcast] What do you do when your marriage needs a reset button?  I recommend asking God what he says about how to recalibrate your marriage, and the clearest way to hear His opinion on the matter is to turn to the Bible. Now, if you’ve ever attended a Christian wedding or two, you’ve more than likely heard a reading from 1 Corinthians 13. It’s pretty much every Christian’s go-to verse regarding love. It says:4 Love is very patient and kind, never jealous or envious, never boastful … [Read more...]

Pam Rohr Slider1

The family dynamics of blended families are unlike any other.  My husband and I have weathered many storms and have come out on the other side – together!  Now, I’d like to share a few pearls of wisdom with you. But before we launch into them, keep in mind 1 Corinthians 1:3-4, which says:3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the co … [Read more...]
