This book also opens the door for all of those individuals and blended families to see the value of being honest about how they feel upfront, instead of allowing the hurt, un-forgiveness, and pain to perpetuate ill-feelings that will make the adults and children of this family system causalities versus champions.

This book was written as a valuable tool to assist the Blended Family in understanding how valuable they are in striving to build a sustainable, cooperative, and compassionate family unit. Dr. Duane and Michele Mangum open up about their real-life experiences in being a part of the Blended Family. They provide step-by-step recommendations to help those in this dynamic family system to achieve better communication, acceptance, and forgiveness of everyone within the family. They also share the necessity of each person's honesty and transparency, which will elevate their harmony and development as a family. As advocates of the Blended Family, being straight-forward in addressing the good, the bad, and the ugly will provide each family, the opportunity to go from just existing to excelling.
