Review

The section on celebrating holidays when dealing with so many different families alone is worth the price of the book. Her advice on establishing family contracts and blending families of different religions is also on target. She frequently backs up her recommendations with stories of real families, including her own. Resource list included. Highly recommended. (C.V. Church Libraries 2004-11-01)

"Margaret Broersma skillfully navigates the sometimes-treacherous waters of step parenting with faith and finesse. Broersma and her husband know firsthand the uphill battle of rearing children, sharing spaces, and establishing blended family traditions, as well as overcoming resistance to achieving all of the above." (Michele Howe Christian Home & School 2005-05-01)

"After a decade of writing and speaking about stepfamilies, Broersma, herself a veteran stepparent, has received her fair share of letters on the subject. Parents asking for advice on everything from what their new stepkids should call them to advice on extreme discipline problems. In this book, she answers 50 such questions with a mixture of practical advice and sound biblical truths. If you are a stepparent or about to become one, you'll benefit from this candid discussion of the issues of blending families." (Baptist New Mexican 2006-04-01)

"Broersma uses her experiences as a stepparent to answer questions regarding real-life situations faced in step-parenting. For a decade she has received many questions through regular mail, e-mail and face to face. She has taken many of these and put them together in 50 questions. She doesn't 'beat around the bush' but gives straightforward advice based on sound biblical principles. This is a must have book for blended families. It you, or someone you know, are planning to become stepparents, you would definitely benefit from reading this book. Keep it handy. You will use it many times as situations arise. This book and the Daily Reflections book by Broersma would make wonderful gifts." (Ann Bales All About Families Newsletter 2006-09-01)

After a decade of writing and speaking about stepfamilies, Margaret Broersma, herself a veteran stepparent, has received her fair share of letters on the subject.

In Stepparent to Stepparent, Margaret answers fifty such questions with a mixture of practical advice and sound Biblical truths. If you are a stepparent or about to become one, you’ll benefit from this candid discussion of the issues of blending families.
