My Family Is Falling Apart

with Ron Deal | August 19, 2020

Kathy's 20-year-old and 16-year-old daughters didn't get along with their stepfather and their dad didn't have any relationship with them. "It's just a mess," she said. "But I still have faith God will work this out." Kathy, I'm sorry things are difficult right now. There's no easy fix so I'm not going to belittle your circumstances with simplistic advice. Keep investing in your marriage because it's the foundation that allows you to rebuild your home. And, keep praying and don't give up.

Ron: Help me. My family is falling apart.

Announcer: For FamilyLife Blended®, here’s Ron Deal.

Ron: After hearing me on the radio Kathy wrote to us. Her 20-year-old and 16-year-old daughters didn’t get along with their stepfather and their dad didn’t have any relationship with them. “It’s just a mess,” she said. “But I still have faith that God will work this out.”

Kathy, I’m really sorry that things are difficult right now. There’s no easy fix so I’m not going to belittle your circumstances with simplistic advice. But I will encourage you in two ways: Invest in your marriage. Even if all else is going wrong, your marriage is the foundation that allows you to rebuild your home. And second, let me commend your faith. Keep praying and don’t give up. For FamilyLife Blended I’m Ron Deal.
