  • Each year thousands of single parents who have empty nests marry. What they don't realize is adult stepfamilies have just as many adjustments to work through as do younger stepfamilies.

Find out what the other people need and ask God for a heart of understanding. I think you’ll be more gracious and compassionate with one another that way.
