Best Book I've Seen for Blended Families Mar 25, 2007
This is the best book I've seen for blended families and remarried couples. It's easy to read, practical, and extremely helpful! If you're struggling to make a remarriage work, and if you can only afford to buy one book, this is definitely the one book to buy! Best of all, it's in paperback at a great price! I'd give this book six stars, but the limit is five!

Why We Wrote This Book (By The Authors) Jan 1, 2007
As we wrote ths book, we sat down with long-term, happily remarried couples and listened to their stories. We laughed, we cried, we learned. After 25 years of working with families in crisis --- especially with post-divorce single parents and remarried couples --- we wanted to "consult the experts" --- in other words, the actual remarried couples who are making it work, every day, in the real world.
We are giving the "5 Stars" above to the remarried couples we learned from. Their stories frame the pages of this book --- real-life people that are coping with separation, loss, anger, the death of dreams --- and then finding the hope and courage to start something new.
If you take the time to read this book, may you find grace and peace for your own journey!

Thank you, Dr. and Mrs. Frisbie! Aug 7, 2006
This book has touched my heart in so many ways. My dad's father walked out on grandma when my dad was five, and it impacted our family even through my teenage years. I grew up not really understanding why Daddy's heart was still hurting, and I didn't realize until my own marriage that I had inherited that same pain--a fear of being abandoned, divorced and rejected. Happily Remarried has given my husband and I the ammunition to destroy those fears, protect our marriage, and understand the hearts of those we love who have suffered through the pain of divorce. A HUGE thank you to David and Lisa for sharing their wealth of experience in this sensitive area! It is so beautifully written, I felt like they were in my living room, sharing iced tea and having a long heart-to-heart conversation. Bless you for writing this book.
Why My Stepkids Don't Like Me Jul 23, 2006
It may not be good news, but it sure is helpful. This book is showing me why my stepkids still don't seem to like me, after 18 months of being married. I've read the chapter called "Who's The Boss?" two times and I need to read it again. I wish I had read this book before the wedding, but at least I am reading it now. I like the stories in this book; I can relate to most of them. Vicki and I are going to make it work, but it hasn't been easy. Her kids don't like me most of the time. Now I know why, and now I know what to do about it. So far, it seems to be working, too.
We Use This Book For Pre-Remarriage Counseling Jul 15, 2006
Our church staff uses this book for all our pre-remarriage counseling. We use it because it's readable; if our clients don't actually read the books we give them, it doesn't really matter how 'right-on' the advice might be. This is not a clinical or technical book --- this book is full of real-life stories, examples, illustrations, ideas and yes -- failures --- that grow out of personal experience in the early 21st century. If you are thinking about getting remarried, sit down and read this book together. You will learn a lot.
