We are the modern day Brady Bunch. We met and married in 2010 when our children were ages 5, 8, 10, 12, 15 and 18 and we have been riding this rollercoaster called life – or blended family life – ever since. Like many families, we are living a whirlwind life juggling to balance marriage, careers, child raising, homework, bills, home maintenance, church and the extremely packed schedule that accompanies teenagers and pre-teens (football practice, band lessons, concerts, drivers ed, youth group… you get the idea).
Marriage and child rearing have to be two of the most difficult life-long commitments a person can make. Let’s not do it alone. Let’s learn how to walk on hot coals baby.
Yes, it takes a village!
